LIFE | STYLE May 2020

May 02, 2020 (Reston, Virginia)

We hope May finds you and your family well—and thriving despite Coronavirus restrictions.

Since so many of us are at home, and with Spring in full (and early) flower, we’re sharing tips in this issue to get your home and property in prime shape for family enjoyment throughout Spring, Summer and Fall.

Just a reminder that we are able to show our homes in two ways. First, we have photographic and 3D virtual tours of our Summer Creek inventory homes available online (here and here). We can also provide socially distanced model tours by appointment; you may tour the homes safely and alone (our salesperson will let you in and wait outside) — just call or send an email to schedule.

Development is nearly complete at Park Grove, and the first two homes are underway. We have begun sending details to members of our Priority Waiting List, who will have early access to the floorplans and product details, so please Contact Us if you’d like to have first opportunity.

We are finalizing details for Willow Hill, a community of seven homes in Vienna. Here is a sneak peek at the logo! We look forward to sharing details of the homes and pricing in the coming months. In the meantime, contact Todd Shea with any questions.

As promised, we have a new virtual tour of the newly completed model home for Summer Creek. We plan on moving in during May/June, so if you’d like to see this beautiful home “in person”, we’d be happy to show it to you in a safe, socially distanced, way.

Be well!
