Willowsford, A Floor Plan Review, The Carolina Place by Ryan Homes

Posted by Carolyn A. Capalbo on Monday, October 31st, 2016 at 12:17pm.

Willowsford offers a wide array of family friendly community amenities that appeal to both younger and older family members.  With its farm to table lifestyle attracting not only families with small children, the Ryan Homes’ Carolina Place model may be a spot on design for empty nesters.  The Carolina Place by Ryan Homes offers an open concept Transitional styled design with a main level master suite.  I am noticing a trend away from dedicated Active Adult communities for many of our 55 and older buyers; and, a move towards amenity rich communities enjoying main level living options.  Particularly among empty nest buyers between 50 and 65 years of age.  These buyers are seeking homes near their kids and grandkids.  They want to be located in a community that offers family friendly amenities without the hefty age restrictions and rules associated with and often found in the 55+ Active Adult communities.  Younger buyers too will find convenience in a smaller home and an option to purchase at Willowsford under $700,000, which can be a challenging feat! 

The Carolina Place offers an open concept design with spacious kitchen and great room area.  Great entertaining and casual family dining area are in great demand for today’s buyers.  The optional rear covered porch is a great addition to expand the flow to a nice outdoor living space.  Main level master is on the smaller side without the optional expanded living space.  The master bath incorporates the master closet and in the basic configuration enjoys dual vanities, shower stall, and water closet.  There is an option to upgrade the owner’s bathroom to include a soaking tub, but lose the water closet separation of toilet and bathroom.  I personally prefer the shower stall and water closet configuration as I seldom take baths.  The secondary bedrooms are also on the smaller side with bedroom 3 having the potential to be utilized as a flex room and convert to either an office or dining room.  The Carolina Place model can also be configured with a second story bonus room.  The main level living space starts at approximately 1700 square feet and can expand from there!  There is also the basement space that can be finished for additional entertaining or living space.   If you would like more information on what’s available at Willowsford, reach out to me.  The builders allow home buyers to enjoy representation!
