This past weekend, my family and parents had a chance to visit the grand opening of a home builder in Loudoun County, Arcadia Communities, in Willowsford. Arcadia is building in the $800,000+ price range in The Grant and The Grange sections and has one type of floorplan that is unique in this area: A One-Story! Well, technically, it’s still two levels since the basement is finished, but all of the bedrooms are located at the ground level, perfect for either:
1. Lazy people like myself or people who just appreciate less climbing or
2. Aging folks who will not want stairs in their future.
Arcadia also builds a two story home and can include an elevator option in their floorplans so actually all of the models are fair game if you fit either of the two categories above. If you’ve always wanted a wine cellar, home theatre, or full-service wet bar with more built-in appliances than some kitchens that I’ve seen, this builder has those options as well. Arcadia builds a great kitchen and does a good job utilizing outdoor living space. In fact, on some of the model homes, they demonstrate how you can have a wrap-around deck that almost doubles your living space! With the addition of a fireplace, those outdoor spaces were as warm, or warmer, than the inside of the home.
Another interesting feature is the Jack and Jill “homework room” that was integrated between two bedrooms. Normally, you would see a Jack and Jill bathroom that is shared between two bedrooms, so this was a novel idea that could work…as long as you had a door for privacy between the two rooms. I also liked the outdoor living space that was integrated on the second floor on some of their floorplans.
Arcadia builds eight different floorplans and six of them are on display as model homes. They are all 4+ bedrooms and 3000 – 5000+ sf if you include the lower level. You can check out my gallery http://editionstnt.com/ of over 50 photos on the top of this post to get an idea of their quality and workmanship and how my kids “photo-bomb” my work.
