Kettler Forlines + Poolesville = Great Place to Live, Learn & Play!

Categories: Brightwell Crossing, poolesville | Posted: October 23, 2017 | Comments Off on Kettler Forlines + Poolesville = Great Place to Live, Learn & Play!

At Kettler Forlines Homes, we proudly promote the incredible schools that our residents attend in Poolesville. Being able to give our homeowners access to such an incredible resource is one of the many reasons we chose to build our Brightwell Crossing neighborhood in this town.

Poolesville high school

We know that providing the best possible education for their children is a high priority for our homeowners. But we also know that kids need comfortable places to study, and safe and fun places to play. So, we’ve designed homes that are very kid-friendly.

Efficient Design

Every Kettler Forlines home has a variety of spaces that are ideal for doing homework – from bedrooms, dens and libraries, to home offices, rec rooms and flex rooms. Some are open and adjacent to the kitchen, while others are tucked away in quiet corners. Many of our homes also have game rooms, spacious yards, and even media rooms. No matter how they prefer to study or relax, your kids are sure to find just the spot for them.

Flexible Floor Plans

Speaking of flexibility, we also have plans that are designed for multi-generational living. These unique suites provide self-contained living quarters (bedroom, bath, living room & kitchen) with private entrances that are attached to the main house for convenience. While it’s not for every family, we’re definitely seeing an increased demand for homes that can adapt to multiple generations.

Studies have shown that multi-gen living has a variety of positive effects on children – from more family dinners and increased adult supervision to better social skills and fewer behavioral problems. Not to mention the innumerable benefits of getting to know their grandparents better. If creating a multi-generation household is a possibility for your family, let us know.

Nurturing Community

Of course, kids need plenty of extra-curricular outlets as well. Whether it’s piano lessons that improve math skills or club soccer that teaches teamwork, extra-curriculars help kids learn skills that help them in school and life. Luckily, Poolesville has a huge range of parks and playgrounds, along with miles of hike/bike trails, a county pool, a skate park, Girl & Boy Scouts, museums, and more. Music lessons, ballet lessons, art classes, karate classes, and horseback riding are also easily accessible.

Obviously, creating great places to raise a family is important to us here at Kettler Forlines Homes. If you’re looking for a home and community that value education and learning, Brightwell Crossing in Poolesville fits the bill.  Come see this remarkable neighborhood for yourself.
