Only a few opportunities remain to live in this quiet, convenient Ephrata Twp. neighborhood built exclusively by Garman Builders
Summerlyn Green, a neighborhood built exclusively by Garman Builders in Ephrata Township, attracts a wide variety of homeowners.
Its location makes it appealing for those who want quick access to the turnpike and other major routes. For those who want to enjoy the amenities closer to home, it’s only minutes from downtown Ephrata and within walking distance of the popular Green Dragon farm market.
And with 31 floor plans ranging from 1,368 square feet to 3,052 square feet, Summerlyn Green has a home to fit everyone, from the young family to those who are downsizing.
One of those homes also happens to be a 2015 Parade of Homes winner. The one-story, three-bedroom Reilly, at 39 Summerlyn Drive, was named best in show in its single-family-home division and also honored for best exterior, interior, kitchen, master bath, decorating and landscaping.
And now that Reilly is ready for an owner.
As a Parade home, the Reilly includes numerous details designed to impress, including sliding, barn-style doors in the dining room and master bedroom, a stone accent wall in the dining room, a gas fireplace with dry-stack stone surround in the family room, and hardwood flooring throughout most of the main living area.
The kitchen features white cabinetry, a subway tile backsplash, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
The master suite includes a tray ceiling, a bath with double-bowl vanity and glass and tile shower, and a walk-in closet.
The laundry off the garage offers the perfect drop zone, with a built-in bench and pegs for storage.
At just over 1,900 square feet, the Reilly is priced at $319,990.
Buyers interested in slightly more living space have another move-in-ready option in Summerlyn Green: the two-story Falcon II model at 42 Summerlyn Drive. At 2,318 square feet, the Falcon II has four bedrooms and two and a half baths.
The spacious kitchen includes an enlarged custom island with granite countertop and a dramatic two-story breakfast area that opens to a sunken living room with custom TV center.
The second floor overlooks the breakfast area and includes the master suite with bath and two walk-in closets. Three additional bedrooms, including one with a walk-in closet, share a second full bath. The laundry is also on the second floor.
The Falcon II is priced at $312,990.
When complete, Summerlyn Green will have 65 homes, says Charles Sensenig, director of sales and marketing for Garman Builders. In addition to the Reilly and the Falcon II, there are also three home sites remaining for those who want to build.
“We’re in the homestretch here for finishing it out,” Sensenig says.
For those who choose to build, Garman offers eight ranch-style homes, five two-story models with first-floor owner’s suites, and 18 traditional two-story homes.
And Garman is now offering an added incentive to build in Summerlyn Green or any of their other neighborhoods: Buyers who sign an agreement by Sept. 30 will be able to select up to $20,000 in free options for their home.
Summerlyn Green is located in the Ephrata School District. Both the Reilly and the Falcon II are open from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
