Redbrook, an A.D. Makepeace community in Plymouth, is kind of like the real estate version of an everything bagel: It offers condos, town homes, apartments, “twin homes’’ (two attached single-family homes), and single-family houses across 11 neighborhoods.

The Winterberry neighborhood offers six housing styles, including ranches that are not the featureless rectangular boxes sometimes associated with the style. The properties in this neighborhood start in the mid-$400,000s.

The home photographed here is a model of a single-family with a gable roof — to accommodate vaulted ceilings. The property, known as the Mayflower II floor plan, has a covered front porch that’s just a few steps along a short walkway from the wide driveway. One can also access the home via the mudroom entrance in the two-car garage. Designed by builder The Stabile Cos., the home to be built at 29 Bearberry Path is slated for completion in June.

The front door of the model opens into a foyer with a closet and a direct line of sight to the rear of the home. Off the foyer is the first of the home’s two bedrooms. Measuring roughly 130 square feet, the guest room has a walk-in closet and a pair of windows. Next down the hallway is a full bath that has a shower/tub combination with a fiberglass surround, a single vanity topped with granite, and a ceramic tile floor. Other counter and flooring options are available.

The next stop is the shared kitchen and dining area. In the 106-square-foot kitchen, the appliances and cabinetry form an L shape, with the gas stove at the center of one leg and the sink parked beneath a window on the other. The appliances are stainless steel. The backsplash is a 4-inch granite, but buyers can opt for white subway tile. The flooring throughout the common areas is hardwood. The kitchen comes with a pantry, but the built-in desk area is optional. An island with seating for two and shelving helps delineate the kitchen from the dining area.

The dining area, at roughly 194 square feet, is designed to host a six-person table and sits next to a pair of windows. From here there is a 204-square-foot living room with a vaulted ceiling, transom windows, built-ins, and a gas fireplace. The windows and fireplace are upgrades.

In 1930, A.D. Makepeace Co. helped found the Ocean Spray co-op, and the Makepeace property was once primarily cranberry bogs. A 140-square-foot four-season sunroom off the living room makes the most of that view and also has a vaulted ceiling. A door opens to the deck.

An entryway off the dining area offers access to the laundry and linen closets, a roughly 135-square-foot study with two windows overlooking the deck, and the owner suite. Both bedrooms and the study are carpeted; hardwood flooring is optional.

At 221 square feet, the owner suite is a true respite. The vaulted ceiling only adds to the feeling of spaciousness. The suite comes with a walk-in closet, a bedroom area with two windows, and a bath that has a double vanity topped with granite, a ceramic tile floor, and a shower with a fiberglass surround. A tiled shower is optional.

The basement is unfinished.

The home sits on a 0.18-acre lot.

When the community is complete, 1,000 acres will be preserved as conservation or farmland. These areas cannot be developed, save for farm-related activities, as they are under agricultural, forestry, or conservation restrictions.

Redbrook also offers 60,000 square feet of retail and commercial space situated among 10 existing and proposed miles of walking and nature trails, as well as cranberry bogs and woods. Tenants include Old Colony YMCA, Beth Israel Lahey Health Primary Care, Long Pond Physical Therapy, a Rockland Trust branch, a country store, and restaurants. Homes range from the upper $300,000s to mid-$600,000s and from 1,577 to 2,605 square feet, and the community also offers a “Meeting House’’ that can be booked for private events, a dog park, private access to two ponds, and various clubs.

The sales office for this neighborhood is at 2 Winterberry Way in Plymouth. For more information, call 508-224-2600.
