Convenient, Carefree, Customized

Nestled amongst the peaceful landscape of northeast Rochester, Stonehedge Townhomes offer everything you would expect from a traditional home—privacy, peace and quiet and ample space—with the convenience of low-maintenance townhome living.

QUALITY AND FUNCTION THROUGHOUT

Outside, Countryside Builder’s model townhouse in the Stonehedge development looks identical to the others on the block. But inside, unique design options make the spacious 1,678-square-foot townhouse feel like a home.

“Several standard and custom choices accommodate different age groups, accessibility needs and personal preferences,” says Tammy Sternberg, marketing manager at Countryside Builders, a family-owned business established in 1976, which prides itself on quality work. “No two townhomes turn out the same.”

With steel siding, a stone finish and generous windows delivering abundant light, the townhouse makes a welcoming first impression. Superior quality and lots of functional amenities flow throughout the exterior and interior.

Ten-foot ceilings add expansiveness to the great room—where a fireplace is a cozy addition—and to the sunroom, a favorite gathering spot. A decorative soffit creates ambiance and defines the dining area.

“[The soffit] offers a lot of room definition without closing off the area,” explains Sternberg of the unique dining room design. “The dining space is a ‘flex area’ and can also be used as a library, study or music room.”

Upgraded kitchen amenities include stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and cherry cabinetry. Luxury vinyl tiles resemble wood flooring and are warm, quiet and easily repairable. The kitchen island is a popular feature, and a bright, spacious dinette overlooks the patio.

The one-level townhome has two bedrooms with a luxurious master suite large enough for a king bed, dresser, armoire and two nightstands. The master bath features a double vanity and optional zero-clearance shower. Sound and privacy elements have also been added.

“A hidden ‘party wall’ exceeds industry requirements and provides added sound privacy,” says Sternberg. “Quality, functionality and energy efficiencies are incorporated all the way through, along with an abundance of closets and storage space.”

SIMPLIFIED LIVING

A well-designed, spacious townhome offers several advantages, including reduced maintenance obligations.

“We don’t think we lost anything by moving to our two-level townhome. It’s the same size as the house we had,” says townhome owner Sharon Dunford referring to her 3,200-square-foot home. “We more or less gained some freedom by leaving the outside work to someone else.” She and her husband enjoy the friendly neighborhood and feel right at home.

Whether you’re considering downsizing to the relaxed atmosphere of a townhouse now or in the future, start by exploring Countryside Builder’s model at 2348 Coral Ridge Place NE during the 2013 Fall Showcase of Homes.
