HANOVER — Nick Heyl gives his new digs, a studio apartment on the third floor of the new Summer Park Residences situated between Park, Summer and Lebanon streets, “a rave review.”

“I’m close to everything and it’s just absolutely quiet here,” Heyl said in a phone interview Friday.

Heyl, a 73-year-old retired attorney and singer/songwriter, spoke little more than a week after moving into the $5.8 million building, which sits near the Hanover location of the Co-op Food Stores, Hanover High School and the Richard W. Black Community Center.

The single building containing 24 units of affordable housing in one of the Upper Valley’s most expensive real estate markets replaces three eight-unit, two-story buildings built in the 1970s. The new energy-efficient building’s features, including an elevator, wider doorways, grab bars, roll-in showers and open floor plans, make it more accessible for tenants with disabilities.
