Wynstone Grand Opening Marks Affordable Luxury for Maryland Buyers

RutherfordThose living in the Baltimore and DC environs know all too well the expense that comes with such a prime area. And while the job market is booming in both cities, the price of real estate in the suburbs just outside of there is often a deal killer for those seeking an affordable custom home within commuting distance.

And this is what makes Wynstone such a rare and special new home community. Located 15 minutes past Westminster, MD, the neighborhood is on the PA/MD border and offers a less expensive alternative to the much pricier neighborhoods that are 15 to 20 minutes closer. But there is more to this community than just savings. While prices start in the mid $300,000s, land sizes start off just a tad bigger. 1.6 acres and up, in fact. This community actually offers an average acreage of more than two acres per home site, and there is even one estate sized lot that offers more than 14 acres of personal refuge for someone seeking the ultimate in luxury and privacy.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and because of this community’s popularity; anyone seeking a new home here should jump all over the chance to own a maintenance-free villa in the final quad building that remains at Deatrick Village. Read More

Building On Your Lot – Find out How Easy it Really Is

S&A new homeWhat happens if you fall in love with a floor plan or home but you aren’t so interested in a specific community? Or maybe you don’t want to live in a neighborhood at all – maybe lots of acreage down a winding dirt road paints a better picture of your ideal home. For those seeking something a bit more outside the box, a solution is not far from reach.

S&A Homes’ Build on Your Lot program puts all of our available floor plans at your fingertips to build on your piece of land. While many builders may claim they do the same, no program is as streamlined or as customer-friendly as ours. The secret is that we don’t ask our customers to manage the home building project the way most new construction providers will. Instead, you will have a project manager working for you, negotiating costs and choosing the most reputable vendors to complete the work in a timely and high-quality fashion. Read More

How To Host a Successful Thanksgiving Dinner

How-To-Host-a-Successful-Thanksgiving-Dinner-1T-minus two days until Thanksgiving! If you’re planning the big meal and are feeling stressed, just read on. We have a few how-tos on hosting a successful event for your friends and family.

Our number one tip is to not do it all alone. From decorating the house to prepping dinner to cleaning up, allot certain tasks to family members. That way, you don’t have to worry about making the beds or tidying up the kids’ rooms when you’re about to cook one of the best meals of the year.

Our second tip to you is to ask your guests to bring the sides. Does your grandma make the best sweet potato casserole? Maybe your brother has a knack for baking pies. Ask guests to bring a favorite dish. Turkey and stuffing is plenty to have cooking in your oven. Read More

Cedarfield Cookout Promises to Appease Housing Appetites

Oakfield Streetscape at Cedarfield

What is it about fall that brings out the hunger in all of us? Whether it’s the crisp fall air, the scents of pumpkin and cinnamon or the upcoming Halloween holiday that does it, this time of year definitely brings on an appetite.

For those living near Gettysburg, that appetite seems to extend well beyond food. The historical Gettysburg area is a huge attraction for those seeking a lifestyle that is centered around the area’s vast amount of attractions, eateries and shopping. That being said, gaining access to the area’s plethora of recreation can come with a hefty price tag or, in the cases of a used home, a substantial amount of work. For those seeking a trade-up in lifestyle without a lofty price tag, they will have the chance to appease their appetites at this weekend’s grand opening kick-off cookout being held in our newly opened Cedarfield community in Gettysburg, PA.
