5 Rooms Dads Will Love in Your New Home

Posted: June 16, 2015 at 11:39 am by: NewHomesGuide

If you’re considering buying a new home, you’ll want to make sure that it’s the right design, the right floorplan for your entire family.

With Father’s Day upon us, this is a perfect time to think about what Dad wants in a new home. What are the places in a home that he truly appreciates?

We’ve recently introduced a new feature on NewHomesGuide.com. It lets you search by room type and browse a collection of corresponding photos. When one jumps out at you, a simple click lets you find out who built that room and where you can find it.

So here are some rooms we think dads (and the rest of the family) will love:

RECREATION ROOM
Today’s builders are really taking basements to the next level. A well-designed recreation room can become the heart of the home and the place where the family spends quality time together.

STUDY
Whether Dad works from home or he just likes to relax with a good book and a bit of quiet time, you can find a sophisticated, exquisitely designed study that he’ll love.

SUN ROOM
There’s no better place for a dad to unwind with a cup of coffee and the Sunday paper than a well-lit sunroom.

WET BAR
If your dad likes to entertain, he’ll definitely want to include a wet bar in a new home. He can impress your guests with his ability to craft the perfect drink.

MEDIA ROOM
Is Dad a movie buff? Or maybe a huge sports fan? Either way, he’ll love taking in the action from a comfy spot with a large-screen television in his new media room.

While you’re celebrating Father’s Day this weekend, pull up NewHomesGuide.com and let Dad spend some time imagining the possibilities.

Community Spotlight: Willowsford, a New Kind of Green Community

Posted: April 8, 2015 at 11:00 am by: NewHomesGuide

New Homes Guide is proud to feature Willowsford on the cover of our March/April issue, available now in print or online.
cover1_willowsford_ma15_no-crops
This one of a kind community is located on the north and south sides of Route 50 in Ashburn and Aldie, Virginia. Willowsford is inspired by the natural environment, community connections and daily experiences that add up to a memorable life.

Of their 4,000 acres, 2,000 acres of Willowsford’s land have been set aside for environmental preservation, recreation, trails and agricultural use. The other 2,000 acres feature homes from 8 of the area’s finest homebuilders, each collection of homes designed exclusively for Willowsford and their 4 intimate neighborhoods.

This land, managed by The Willowsford Conservancy, includes an elaborate network of trails through dense woodlands and pastures, Willow Lake, a 300-acre working farm, and land designated to remain as open space.

Willowsford Farm is an essential part of the farm-to-table lifestyle here, featuring fresh vegetables and farm products. Homeowners can participate in the community supported agriculture program or shop at the Willowsford Farm Market.

Willowsford is comprised of four neighborhoods—called villages—in some of Virginia’s most beautiful country. The Grant and The Grange are north of Route 50 in Ashburn, VA, and The Grove and The Greens are south of Route 50 in Aldie, VA.

The community is brought together by an outstanding and unique array of amenities already in place. The Lodge at Willow Lake links The Grove and The Greens and is reminiscent of a large family lake house. It includes a grand patio, bocce courts, a yoga lawn and event lawn, a pool complex and a terraced sun deck overlooking the mountains. The Boat House Information Center is also here with a fishing dock, outdoor fire pit, canoe launch and storage.

Sycamore House, the centerpiece of The Grange, is an elegant community gathering space in the grand mansion style highlighting a teaching and demonstration kitchen. It overlooks a grassy outdoor amphitheater and opens onto a large village green surrounded by “country-formal” gardens with a fish pond, and a resort-style swimming pool with cabanas and a sun ledge. The Tenant House Information Center is also located here.

Visit Willowsford and you’ll see for yourself how their signature home designs highlight this amazing location and the lifestyle that it offers today’s homebuyers and why they’ve been chosen as Community of the Year three years in a row.

New Homes Guide has everything that you need to find the perfect new home in this unique community today. Or visit WillowsfordNHG.com for more amazing details.
