As we look past the naked trees and bland winter palette eagerly anticipating Spring, nothing seems to be experiencing quite the growth and activity that we’re seeing in the new construction housing market. I’m working with a client currently in negotiations and the builder has revised their concession plan to eliminate finished basements (including an extra bathroom) and has started releasing more lots to keep up with demand. To say it’s a Seller’s Market is a gross understatement.
This week we visit Preserve at Westfields, a 50+ acre project between Van Metre and Craftmark Homes, both of which offer 4 bedroom plans with a rooftop terrace and base prices under $600,000. Ranging from 2,126 to 2,987 square feet, these contemporary homes in the Dulles Technology Corridor are walkable to shopping, dining, and transportation options.
Originally zoned commercial, the mixed-use development will feature community amphitheater, pavilion, nature trails, lake, open green space, and 150+ townhomes. As early as 2019, you’ll also see a resort-style spa, a health club featuring the latest equipment for a range of workouts from yoga to Crossfit, resident co-working space, a pet run and spa, and retail shops.
A couple of cool features of the Glendale floor plan by Craftmark Homes; the excellent use of outdoor space. A covered deck off the dining room and private terrace on the upper level, most of which backs to a preserve green space that will never be developed. The kitchen also has glass-door upped cabinets with windows in the back, allowing for even more natural light in an already brilliant setting.
Currently delivering homes through December 2019, there is an attractive Westfield model, end unit priced at $594,900 for May occupancy. Contact us for more details!
