Monte Hewett Homes announces the opening of two model homes in West Village, a new traditional neighborhood development of single-family homes and town homes near Atlanta Road and I-285 in Smyrna. The decorated models show buyers the standard features and many possibilities in a single-family home and a town home within the live-work-play community.
Monte Hewett’s single-family model home showcases the three-bedroom Howell plan. The main level living spaces feature elegant hard yellow pine floors with black stain. Brushed granite countertops and a unique wood-topped island allow ample space in the chef-friendly kitchen. The family room’s limestone mantle is accented by elaborate built-in shelving on either side of the fireplace. In the master suite’s spacious sitting area, more custom built-ins provide a home management desk and display space for favorite books and collectibles. The cozy area leads to a porch overlooking the private courtyard.
This courtyard is formed by a brick wall that extends from the Howell’s brick and stone exterior to wrap around the entire backyard. Stone columns are spaced every 10 feet along the wall. Inside the courtyard, a flagstone walkway leads to an outdoor fireplace, creating an ideal spot for entertaining neighbors or enjoying an early morning cup of coffee.
Monte Hewett’s town home model in West Village surprises buyers by offering the spaciousness of a single-family home. Showcasing the Piedmont plan, the three-story home features a media room with wet bar on the lower level. Exposed brick walls in the foyer, rear-entry garage and master bedroom create an urban, loft-like appeal. The kitchen and adjoining family room flow into each other, and a nearby formal dining room gives plenty of space for entertaining – much more space than is usually found in a town home. As in the single-family model, the Piedmont’s kitchen updates the look of granite with a brushed finish.
Like all Monte Hewett homes in West Village, the two models are constructed with 10-foot ceilings and hardwood floors on the main levels and are finished with two-piece crown molding throughout the primary living areas. Special touches in all homes include granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, coffered ceiling in the living room and built-in shelving flanking the family room fireplace. Front porches and rear entry garages accessed through back alleys create hometown ambience. As with all homes built by Monte Hewett, those in West Village meet or exceed the high standards of EarthCraft construction, so they are more efficient and comfortable, saving home owners up to 30 percent on their energy bills.
In the style of traditional neighborhood developments, West Village includes a mix of home styles arranged around a “downtown village.” Residents can stroll down the brick paver sidewalks into the village to visit the bookstores, boutiques, restaurants and their favorite neighborhood hangout. When recreation or friends call, neighbors can enjoy the community pool, spacious clubhouse or relax by the community’s outdoor fireplace. Because lawn maintenance is included with the homeowner association fees, neighbors have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the surroundings.
West Village’s retail component will include restaurants, quaint boutiques, a coffee bar and larger shops to attract community residents and visitors alike. The community’s residential components will include the 115 townhomes and 70 single-family homes by Monte Hewett Homes as well as apartments and condos. In all, the community will boast some 1,100 residential and retail units.
To visit, take I-285 to the Atlanta Road exit. Turn north and the community will be immediately on the left.
