Millpond is a townhome community of 120 homes located on historic Stevens Pond in North Andover, Massachusetts.
There is nothing more beautiful than a home that blends into its environment. Reminiscent of the rugged rocks that define New England, Millpond's deliberate angled lines and tree-trunk-taupe color naturally blend into the environment in which it sits. The color is organic and the lines are spare, letting the eye rest on the 22 acres of natural beauty that surround each home. Just as Frank Lloyd Wright designed the 'prairie home' to be flat and horizontal in its surrounding open flat space and his 'Falling Water' home has horizontal planes that mimic the river that flows under it, the original intent that the developers had for Millpond was that it should blend into the rugged environment of New England. When you live here, you notice nature not the homes. It was very deliberate. It is very effective. It is very beautiful. Millpond is a multi-generational community of 120 townhomes nestled on the shores of Stevens Pond in North Andover. This is the former site of the JP Stevens Textile Mill with a rich history dating back to its inception in 1813. In 1974 a developer purchased 22 acres from the former mill site and Millpond was built. Our name is a tribute to our history. Millpond’s naturally breathtaking setting affords residents numerous amenities, both on the grounds and in the immediate surrounding area. Residents enjoy taking a stroll around our beautiful grounds or hiking nearby Weir Hill. Residents also take advantage of our tennis courts, pool, clubhouse, and fishing in the ponds located on the property. Millpond buildings occupy a mere 6 of the 22 acres of the land on which they sit. The rest of the area is green space. That is under 30% for buildings, leaving 70%+ to nature. You do not find that in any HOAs built in the last 20 years. Private patios, semi-private balconies and decks and ample yard space create a relaxed and refreshing living environment outside that is not equaled by any other condo/homeowner association in the area. If you are tired of predictable colonial home layouts, Millpond offers a more modern layout of contiguous space (great for entertaining), large glassed walls letting in lots of light and sights of natural beauty are everywhere at Millpond. At the same time, each townhome provides effective interiors with master bedroom en suites, a second floor laundry and more. The townhomes are constructed so that if you want open floor plans, the structure of the home easily allows that. Many homeowners here have opened up their space with great success. Though they may look connected, each Millpond townhome is free-standing. There are two walls between each home and these walls do not touch each other. This is the best way to dampen sound. Homeowners appreciate the quiet and restful space, both inside and out. Millpond is not a condo association; it is organized by a Homeowner’s Association and controlled not by a Master Deed but by a Master Declaration. Millpond was creatively developed as a Planned Unit Development (PUD). Each homeowner owns the land on which their dwelling sits. Homeowners enjoy access to large open spaces as well as their own private yard. The protected open spaces are intended to be enjoyed by all residents. Millpond is governed by a Board of Directors which consists of seven voting members who are elected by the homeowners for three year terms and two non-voting members, clerk and treasurer, elected annually. A board president is elected each year by the board members. Monthly homeowner’s fees are currently set at $430. The fee covers landscaping and grounds maintenance, snow removal, care of the pool, tennis courts, and clubhouse, outdoor lighting, trash removal, painting, building maintenance, master policy insurance, real estate taxes for community areas and buildings, and management. We are currently managed by Property Management of Andover. Millpond holds over a quarter of a million dollars in reserve funds. Over $50,000 per year is added to this. In recent years Millpond has undergone a number of restorations, and townhome buildings boast new roofs with 50 year shingles and new siding, as well as freshly paved roads. There has not been a special assessment in two years. We do not foresee any major special assessments in our near future! Millpond is conveniently located within walking distance of many North Andover schools, and is nestled between routes 93 and 495, providing access to major highways within 5-15 minutes.

A peaceful summer day at Millpond. Lake Cochichewick is located right over those hills. A short walk away. It is the source of North Andover's drinking water...therefore no swimming is allowed. Certain watercraft are allowed but must be designed to be manually propelled, by oars or paddles or electric motors.
This is the 3rd year of our Millpond Community Gardens. They were established for a dual purpose...10 beds currently dedicated to homeowner use and the other part of the garden area dedicated as a nursery and holding area for Millpond's landscaping plants. The gardens are a great benefit to our community.

In fact, according to "Legends of America", more people from Andover were accused and arrested for witchcraft than from any other town in New England”. If you want to know more, use the link below:
