With its spacious lot sizes, natural beauty and convenient location between Lancaster and Reading, the new Hawk Valley Estates is an ideal place to call home.
The first phase of this 160-home community by Landmark Homes is taking shape in Denver, just minutes from the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Already, four lots are sold and under construction, according to community sales manager Kristin Dobbs. Additionally, three quick-delivery homes are at or near completion.
And Landmark recently put the finishing touches on its new model home — a spacious four-bedroom Sullivan that will make its official debut at a grand opening from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28.
The event is a chance for the public to drop by and tour the model, enjoy refreshments, view available lots and take advantage of exclusive incentives for building in the community.
Visitors who reserve a lot on that day will receive an upgraded stainless steel appliance package. They also will have the rare opportunity to view their lot from above, thanks to a tethered hot air balloon available from 3 to 5 p.m., courtesy of Ephrata National Bank. Weather permitting, that sky-high view promises to be a pretty one.
The first phase of Hawk Valley Estates sits on what was once the front nine of Hawk Valley Golf Course — a naturally scenic setting that allows for lot sizes of a half-acre or more.
“It’s in a beautiful area,” Dobbs says.
And for the time being, Hawk Valley Golf Course remains an operating nine-hole course, with development of the back nine as much as several years away, Dobbs says.
The first phase of Hawk Valley Estates will include a total of 34 lots, with home prices starting at $316,800. Buyers have a choice of 14 floor plans, ranging in size from 2,200 to 4,100 square feet. Among them are two single-story options and five with first-floor owner’s suites.
Buyers can find plenty of inspiration in the 4,000-square-foot Sullivan, one of Landmark’s newer floor plans. From its welcoming red front door to the oversized swing on its screened-in rear deck, the model is built to impress.
The main living area is an open concept layout that includes a two-story great room, a kitchen and breakfast area, and a cozy hearth room with stacked-stone fireplace and shiplap accent wall.
The kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, a large island with farmhouse sink, a walk-in pantry and a butler’s pantry with wine fridge.
An open formal dining room off the foyer features a coffered ceiling and Arts and Crafts-style wainscoting.
The first-floor owner’s suite boasts plenty of dramatic detail, too, including a large triple window, three transom windows and decorative wainscoting. The luxurious owner’s bath has a walk-in shower, freestanding tub, dual vanities with vessel sinks and a private water closet. And the spacious walk-in closet makes dressing a breeze, with a full-length mirror and plenty of built-in drawers and shelves to organize the wardrobe.
The first floor also includes an entry area off the garage with built-in lockers, built-in desk and gray shiplap accent wall.
Upstairs, the Sullivan features a loft area overlooking the great room and three additional bedrooms — one with its own bath and two sharing a Jack-and-Jill bath. Each bedroom has its own walk-in closet.
If that isn’t enough space, the Sullivan offers two mid-level rooms — a flex room/study with cathedral ceiling between the first and second floors and a bonus room between the first floor and basement.
