Kent Island Waterfront Community Honored 11 Times at MAX Awards

K. Hovnanian® Homes’ newest 55+ Active Lifestyle community was the biggest winner of the night at the Maryland Building Industry Association’s annual MAX Awards on May 9, taking home 11 trophies in a variety of product, merchandising and marketing categories.

K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Kent Island, located just across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in Chester, Maryland, opened in late 2018 and is already one of the region’s most popular communities. Single family homes featuring main-level owner’s suites, starting from the $400s, have been selling quickly, and luxury waterview condos are coming in 2019.

At the MAX Awards, each of the four decorated models won both a Product and a Merchandising award for their respective price point and community categories.  The eight combined awards for the Donegal, Killarney Loft, Santorini Loft and San Sebastian Loft represented a sweep of all available recognition for “55 and better” detached model homes. 

K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Kent Island also took home marketing awards for Outstanding TV Campaign, Outstanding Social Media Campaign and Outstanding Direct Mail.

“It was an incredible night for an incredible community,” said Doug Shipe, Community Manager. “These awards reflect the effort and thoughtfulness that have gone into every home and every detail at K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Kent Island. Between the homes, the amenities and the Kent Island lifestyle, our residents have a community they can be proud of and something new to look forward to every day.”

The community’s first residents rave about the ideal location, as well as the access to the Cross-Island Trail. Stretching for 6 scenic miles –– and passing through the community –– it’s one of the area’s leading hiking and biking destinations.

More planned amenities are on the way. An expansive waterfront clubhouse will feature a fitness center, indoor and outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor yoga spaces, as well as tennis and pickleball courts. Residents will enjoy a dog park for their furry friends and a playground for when grandchildren visit.

A canoe and kayak launch will offer water access, and a 450-foot pier will be perfect for fishing or simply admiring the views of the gorgeous Chester River.
