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.

Why Are Ranches Overlooked in Home Building Today?

Vista Ridge ranch homeDespite the fact that the first floor master tops many home buyers’ request lists, the need tends to be overlooked by builders in general.  And ranch homes? Forget it. They are nearly impossible to find in most home builders’ neighborhoods.

While it may be a mystery to customers in general, those with a construction background are able to understand the reasoning more.  The ability to build a quality ranch home at an affordable price is difficult if you don’t start with superior building practices to begin with. Poured concrete foundation, 2×6 exterior construction, OSB sheathing and other products that exceed code standards are a necessity for ranch homes given their much larger footprint and design structure.

For a production based builder, this can mean circumventing their normal system and building outside the box, something that slows down their cycle time and requires more skilled labor. But for a builder with custom roots and a commitment to quality, including these items is already a standard practice, thereby making it far easier to meet customer demand by building ranch homes.
