Eagle Creek Builders is an award-winning company that packs as many features as it can into its homes – and still manages to sell them at a reasonable price.

The home at 1128 Plum Grove Lane, in The Village at Plum Grove just off Dorr Street in Springfield Township, is a fine example of Eagle Creek’s work. Cloaked in stone and vinyl, the home’s many gables give it visual appeal. A poured concrete drive and walkway lead to the covered front porch.

Inside, the welcoming foyer rises two stories. A large window allows natural sunlight into the room. A plant ledge offers an ideal spot for your plants to soak up the sun.

To the right, a staircase rises to the second floor. Its oak and wrought iron railing creates a balcony overlooking both the foyer and the great room. A small powder room off the foyer serves guests as they arrive.  To the left, a formal dining room with a palladian window and vaulted ceiling will make every dinner here a special occasion.

Beyond the dining room, the kitchen is a gem. Open to the great room, it is light and sunny, and offers ample counter space. The vinyl tile floor is easily cleaned, and has the solid good looks of slate tile. A peninsula snack bar offers extra dining space; it is topped with a Wilsonart hi-def countertop in shades of sage and moss. It contrasts nicely with the oak cabinets, which are finished with crown molding at the top. A pantry provides for extra storage, and black GE appliances make cooking here a breeze.

The kitchen is open to the great room, and includes space for informal dining. The kitchen is open to the great room, and includes space for informal dining.

Nearby is space for informal dining, with recessed lighting making a subtle statement. A sunroom is next, providing a quiet space for reading – or the perfect playroom for the kids! Sliding doors lead to the poured concrete patio outside, and large windows in the sunroom offer great views of the neighborhood’s pond.

The great room of the home is perfect for entertaining. A cathedral ceiling adds height and drama here, while the gas fireplace adds warmth and style. A tile surround and white wood mantle dress the fireplace beautifully. The area above the mantle is prewired for your flat screen TV, with surround sound in the great room and a whole house speaker system.

Off the great room, the master bedroom is a quiet retreat.  A deep tray ceiling is quite elegant, and a ceiling fan offers a comfortable breeze.  Large windows look out over the pond.

The master bathroom is designed for a busy couple. A dual raised vanity in oak boasts a cultured marble countertop. Across from it is the deep soaking tub nestled below an oversize glass block window. A glassed-in shower with seats, a generous walk-in closet and a private water closet complete the room.

A laundry room nearby doubles as a mudroom, leading from the garage into the home. Cabinets, a sink, and a coat closet make this a very convenient space.

A staircase off the foyer leads to the full basement, which is plumbed for a half bath.

Upstairs are three additional bedrooms. Each has a double closet, and they share a hall bath and a linen closet.

Eagle Creek Builders, developers of The Village of Plum Creek, won the 2010 Sales And Marketing Award for this home, and offer a variety of options within each home. Best of all, the homes are Energy Star rated, meaning that the home has been built with energy-saving features throughout, including a high-efficiency gas furnace and 13 SEER air conditioner, NuWool WALLSEAL insulation, triple seal casement windows with low-E glass and argon gas, and a house wrap to prevent air infiltration. It is estimated that heating and cooling will cost approximately $1,687 annually.
