Recently we had the opportunity to visit new homes ready for quick move-in. The Oaks is a gated community on the north side of Clint Moore between US-441 and Lyons Road with new homes selling for $1 million and up. It’s a great location in many ways. For shopping and restaurants it’s across from The Reserve with a Publix, Villa Rosano, Fit Foodz Café, It’s All Greek, Tempura House, Ben’s Deli and more. Delray Marketplace is just north on Lyons at Atlantic. For commuting Clint Moore is one of the easiest east-west drives during rush hour and it’s close to two Turnpike exits – Atlantic to the north and Glades to the south.
There are two builders selling homes in The Oaks. In our recent visit we saw models from Richmond American. Click on any picture to see a larger size.
The first model we saw was large and loaded with features. The Kingsmill is over 5400 square feet with five bedrooms including guest suite on the ground floor. It starts at just over $1.1 million but the model we saw would be quite a bit more.
The kitchen is an example of the high-end features. It has a wraparound counter around a large island that includes a second sink.
The gas range is extra wide and there are actually two dishwashers. The gas can also be extended to the dryer in the laundry room and the grill on the deck.
Our favorite feature in the kitchen is the walk-in pantry closet that is hidden behind regular cabinet doors.
The kitchen looks out on the backyard through something we hadn’t seen before – a sliding glass door that opens at a corner.
From inside you see a pleasant lake view.
The dining room is nicely done.
The master bedroom and bathroom are gorgeous, again with the high-end features you’d expect at this price.
After the Kingsmill we also saw the Westgate model, which is even larger at over 6500 square feet and starts just short of $1.3 million.
Unlike the first model this one has been left wide open to let the buyer’s imagination go to work. It is, of course, spacious inside.
The island in the kitchen is very large.
The Westgate comes with a nice architectural feature – a curved staircase which produces the curvature on the front of the house.
The size allows for a feature we have seen before and like, separate his-and-hers master bathrooms off the master bedroom.
We also saw another model, the Cheval. This is the master bath.
One more feature we saw in the Cheval that goes beyond interior square footage is a large second-floor balcony off the master suite. This model was still under construction when we saw it.
