LIFE | STYLE October 2020

October 21, 2020 (Reston, Virginia)

The leaves are falling, temperatures cooling, and Halloween is just around the corner!

Things in the homebuilding industry are booming, with the accompanying challenges (material and labor cost increases and delays), but it is great to have a robust, healthy market. Folks in the mortgage industry are even busier than builders, as it seems like everyone is refinancing with the historically low rates..

We are looking forward to the holidays, despite the inevitable COVID changes this year, especially to seeing the spooky decorations in Gulick communities throughout Northern Virginia.


Parkline 60 Family Room

Summer Creek is now sold out and it turned out beautifully. Clearing out the model for the new purchasers was bittersweet, as we have enjoyed our time there. So often, builders try to “flatten” their properties to create exclusively flat front and rear yards, but often that creates a “stamped out”, uniform feel. The varied topography of Summer Creek is something that beautifies the community. Each home relates to the street differently, creating an impressive streetscape that surprises, where each home has its own character.

The Park Grove model is expected to open to the public in January. You may begin seeing print and digital ads for that community, and we are working on expanding with sales details. We can’t wait until that first Parkline 80 is finished; we hope you’ll visit us when it opens! In addition to the three sold to the Priority Waiting List, we have the model and two inventory homes underway. If you have interest in reserving one of the last two available homesites or any questions, please contact Julie Zelaska at or 703.520.5666.

Development for Willow Hill, our community of seven two-acre estate homes, begins in November. Please contact Todd Shea at or 703.674.0350 to join the Priority Waiting List for that community and receive regular updates as they become available. We expect sales to begin in late Spring of 2021.

In next month’s issue we hope to have to have a few “sneak peek” details on our next community, Hudson Quarter, which will be located in Falls Church and feature all new home designs. Stay tuned for the November Issue!

The Difference Is In The Details

Stunning from the Street, Your Portfolio Home

Some prospective homeowners are concerned that a portfolio home will look just like every other home built from the same portfolio design. In fact, the same essential design can look dramatically different and evoke different styles by varying the exterior color, finishes, and easily- modified design features. For example…
