Poolesville, MD (PRWEB) September 13, 2010
Kettler Forlines Homes, (http://www.kettlerforlineshomes.com) a Montgomery Village, MD-based homebuilding company with a 30+ year track record of industry excellence and awards, has opened the Montgomery model home and design center for Brightwell Crossing (http://www.brightwellcrossing.com). Located in the historic Town of Poolesville, Brightwell Crossing is the newest residential living community in a nationally-recognized school district in Western Montgomery County, just outside of Washington, DC.
"With construction underway and new residents set to move in by the end of the year, the feedback we're hearing about the many customizable space and design options available for new home buyers is overwhelmingly positive," said Richard Kettler, owner of Kettler Forlines Homes. "People are especially drawn to the comfortable and functional living options that have become priorities for homebuyers in recent years."
With the model home located at 17919 Elgin Rd. in Poolesville, Brightwell Crossing lot sizes range from one-third to one acre and home prices start in the $500,000s. Seven new home designs are available to choose from, ranging from 2,450 to 4,200 square feet. The most popular features include the open, "heart of the first floor" kitchen/family room/sunroom area; home offices for telecommuters; a second-floor laundry room; walk-in closets; large kitchen and butler's pantries; an abundance of natural light and bay windows with views of nearby Sugarloaf Mountain; 20-percent larger garages than standard; stone-detailed porches; and decorative backyard rain barrels to collect storm water runoff for watering lawns and plants.
"We've worked with industry-leading architects and design professionals to incorporate fresh, market-driven ideas into Brightwell Crossing," said Tom Kettler, president of Kettler Forlines Homes at Brightwell Crossing and a long-time Poolesville resident. "Classic yet progressive homes are being built in Western Montgomery County's most charming town, which proudly boasts a first-rate school system, making it an ideal setting for any family."
Homes in the Brightwell Crossing community will all be ENERGY STAR® qualified, and among the first built in the region also to have the new EPA Indoor airPLUS label, which indicates they are designed for improved indoor air quality. According to the U.S. EPA, "Homes that earn the EPA ENERGY STAR and Indoor airPLUS labels are designed to have lower utility costs, greater comfort, better durability, and reduced risk of indoor air quality problems. The construction features of Indoor airPLUS qualified homes can lead to lower health risks, protection against combustion pollutants, and fewer pests, allergens, and asthma triggers."
Construction is also underway on Brightwell Crossing's new six-acre Elgin Park. It will include a high-school regulation size lacrosse/soccer field, a full basketball court, a large playground area for children 2-12 years old, a picnic pavilion with restroom facilities, and walking trails that are connected to 50 acres of protected woodland surrounding Dry Seneca Creek.
Brightwell Crossing is located in Western Montgomery County, just outside of Washington, DC, with easy access to many nearby hubs for business and leisure. The nation's capital; a bustling I-270 biotechnology corridor; Northern Virginia; and historic Frederick, Maryland are all easily accessible via public transportation or by car within 20-45 minutes.
Brightwell Crossing is Kettler Forlines Homes' third residential community in Poolesville. The homebuilder previously built the successful Tama and Woods at Tama communities, which earned the company the Maryland National Capital Building Industry Association's "Environmental Developer Builder of the Year" award.
