1.The Larch

If you are eager to get into a house right away, but want to purchase new, our Larch on #538 may be right for you. Recently completed, this brand-new walkout features a large lake-facing deck creating the perfect combination between indoor-outdoor living. We chose a color scheme rich in ivory and brown paired with a mixed white granite for a clean finish. The masonry work around the fireplace finishes the look by bringing the rock details on the attached garage into the living area, tying the design together.

The Juniper at lot #216 is in the middle of construction where potential buyers can see framing and drywall components that are currently being completed. In this stage of construction, buyers can really get a feel for the overall flow of the home and determine whether it is the best fit for them.
