Luxury homes are under construction at Brightwell Crossing
Have you been looking for a new home that gives you everything you want, without a long list of home improvement projects attached to it? Kettler Forlines Homes is excited to announce that two luxury homes are now under construction at The Reserve at Brightwell Crossing in Poolesville, MD.
With only a few homesites left before this distinctive community is entirely sold out, we decided to get started and move up the move-in date for two homebuyers. Will you be one of them?
There’s so much to say about each of these homes that we’re going to tackle it one at a time. Here’s a peek into what we’re planning on one of them.
18714 Medley Way, Poolesville, MD
5,950 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, 3-car garage
Experience true harmony on Medley Way in The Reserve at Brightwell Crossing. We chose our exclusive Montgomery 6-bedroom floor plan for the large homesite. The architecture blends traditional style with contemporary detailing. Step inside to experience nearly 6,000 square feet of exquisite craftsmanship that spans three levels, beginning with an elegant clerestory foyer and stately staircase.
The open floor plan is filled with natural light streaming through the large and plentiful windows. The high ceilings feel even higher with so much light. The rich wood floors glisten throughout the first level.
The main floor is smartly designed to accommodate your day-to-day activities. The open floor plan combines the oversized family room, cafe area, gourmet kitchen, and sunroom. In addition, this Montgomery home presents a formal dining room, a spacious home office, and a large flex room. How would you use an extra room in your home?
The kitchen will be your pride and joy (sorry, kids, mom loves her kitchen). You’ll feel like the host of an HGTV cooking show! Picture sleek quartz countertops and Timberlake cabinets. Think about how much you’ll appreciate the Viking gas cooktop, dual wall ovens, and a Whirlpool stainless steel French door refrigerator with 32 cubic feet of space.
Then picture how many ways you’ll utilize the adjacent butler’s pantry/service kitchen—for serving, storage, and sending coffee drinkers and snackers out of your precious kitchen space. There are so many ways to love this extra feature. Plus, the walk-in pantry will be the envy of your friends who are still trying to find a place to stash their overflowing supplies and kitchen gadgets.
Beyond the main living area, step out to the gorgeous loggia, an outdoor living area with a hint of Tuscan style. Overlook your expansive yard from this open but covered patio.
The second floor of the home at 18714 Medley Way houses the owner’s suite and 4 more bedrooms. Once you’ve seen the owner’s retreat, you’ll find it hard to settle for anything less. The oversized bedroom includes a sitting area (which could work well as a fitness area, reading room, office, or hobby space. We’ve incorporated dual walk-in closets and a fully appointed ensuite bath: dual vanities with quartz countertops, freestanding tub, heavy glass frameless shower, and private water closet.
Two of the secondary bedrooms upstairs function as junior suites, each with its own full bath and a walk-in closet. The remaining upstairs bedrooms have walk-in closets and share a jack-and-jill bathroom with a private toilet and shower area.
The third level of the new home is the finished basement. We shouldn’t even use the word “basement” because this one is so far beyond that concept. Kettler Forlines Homes designed it with a guest suite—perfect for someone who wants to live more independently in your home. The fully finished basement also has an enormous rec room with the option to add a bar, and a flex space.
This inspiring home is listed at $1,243,765.
