Our Featured Home of the Week

Edgebrook Villas offers homebuyers something few builders can: a 15-year tax abatement on a new home. According to builder David Schmitt, this can mean a savings of $2,000 to $2,500 a year on your real estate taxes!

Of course, the savings wouldn t matter at all if you weren t happy in your new home. And with all the amenities and conveniences included here, you re sure to love living in your Edgebrook Villa.

The exterior of our featured home, 5921 Edgebrook Boulevard, has a stone front elevation with cream siding. A peaked window highlights the front. A poured concrete walkway leads to the covered front porch.

Inside is a graceful entryway that provides an instant welcome. Oak hardwood floors gleam beautifully underfoot. To the left are stairs to the partial basement. To the right are a guest closet and the first of three bedrooms.

This bedroom contains that peaked window mentioned earlier, and the high, pointed shape continues in the room with a vaulted ceiling. Recessed lights here provide subtle illumination, and a double closet provides ample storage. A full bath is adjacent to the guest bedroom, with a cultured marble countertop and brushed nickel hardware, stylish additions to the vanity. With its good looks and location away from the main part of the home, this would make an ideal guest suite.

At the end of the foyer is the great room. A tall cathedral ceiling makes a dramatic statement. The room is anchored by a gas fireplace with a marble surround and raised hearth. A white wood mantel graces the fireplace, creating a perfect spot to display your treasured artwork.

Off the great room is the master suite. This luxurious owner s retreat offers a place for quiet relaxation. A deep tray ceiling adds a touch of elegance to the room, and the attached bathroom is very convenient. Enjoy the walk-in shower with two seats, the private water closet, and the raised dual vanity. Adjacent to the bath is the spacious walk-in closet, making this a perfect dressing area.

Across the great room, close to the kitchen, is the dining area. A generous space, it also includes a door to the poured concrete patio. Set up your grill there and it will be just steps away from your table. The kitchen includes a peninsula snack bar so that guests can visit with the cook. The kitchen itself provides plenty of counter space, and standard features include a GE electric stove, a vented range hood, recessed lighting, and much more. But beyond mere functionality, this kitchen also has style, with birch cabinets, recessed lighting, and neutral Corian solid surface countertops. Store your canned goods and boxes of cereal in the convenient pantry.

Off the kitchen is a short hall. Another bedroom, shown in this model as an office, is tucked back here. Across the hall are a closet and the laundry room. At the end of the hall is the two-car garage, with pull-down stairs for easy access to attic storage.

This model home, the Woodbridge, is just one of five offered by Edgebrook Development Company. Sixteen lots are available in this well-located development, close to Kroger, Wal-Mart, and with easy access to I-475 and US 23. Homeowners association fees are just $100 a month, and include lawn care, snow removal, and leaf pick-up.
