Wheatland Farms Community is Now Sold Out!

Categories: Events | Posted: April 24, 2019

 

Lincoln University PA Community“When I think back to our initial plan meeting in October 2005 Wheatland Farms was nothing more than a field with rolling hills and no public utilities in sight. Along the way we dealt with a down turn in the economy, added new models, adjusted pricing and construction standards, introduced new marketing, and learned a new pricing system all in an effort to present our clients with the very best opportunity in Avon Grove.  For their unending support and guidance, a special note of thanks to Craig, Regina, Dave, Amy, Chip, Jen, and Randy who have all been involved with Wheatland Farms from the very beginning – our project is now complete. Thank you so much!” BILL RAYMOND, Wheatland Farms Site Agent

At long last, Wheatland Farms Community in Avon Grove School District is complete and sold out!  What started out as nothing more than rolling hills is now today a thriving, beautiful community filled with 143 homes and located in the heart of the Avon Grove School District. With one and two-story homes, tree lined streets, and beautiful open space, Wheatland Farms Community is a site to see. As Bill Raymond so thoughtfully stated, building a new home community from start to finish takes unending support and guidance, and Wheatland Farms is a product of that dedication and service for clients like you.  Stay tuned for our next community in the Avon Grove School District by following our blog or sign up for upcoming events, communities, and special incentives by contacting info@cedarknollbuilders.com.

Built-Ins, a growing trend in the home industry…

Categories: Honeycroft Village 55+ Active Living | Posted: April 5, 2019

Honeycroft Built-In IncentiveThanks to HGTV, Property Brothers and Magnolia Home, built-in shelving is still today a growing and desired trend in the home building industry. In a world where new homes can sometimes feel a little cookie cutter, built-ins provide that unique and cozy home appeal that adds so much character and life to any room. Moreover, built-ins provide lots of storage. They can also occupy an entire wall without making the room feel considerably smaller. Because they sit flush with your existing walls and furniture, they are sure to fit any style and help create a cohesive look throughout that can be coordinated with the rest of your home décor. So not only do built-ins look amazing in a home, but also they wonderfully minimize wasted space and help add storage opportunity where you might have never imagined possible. Who doesn’t want a little more storage these days?

All this being said, we felt the month of April was a great time to offer Free Built-In Shelving at our Honeycroft Village Active Adult Living Community. Now until April 31st enjoy spring savings with the purchase of your new cottage home with free built-in shelving units around your morning sunroom addition.

How one family defines quality in a builder…

Categories: Custom Home | Posted: January 3, 2019

Custom Modern Farmhouse KitchenFor Kara and Erik Ward, trustworthiness was one of the key players in their decision process upon choosing a custom home builder. What comes to mind for you when you think about choosing a company to build your forever home? What standards of ethics are top of your list? Does price rank first in your mind, building practices, or maybe quality products?  Read below for Kara and Erik’s take on why they chose to work with Cedar Knoll Builders:

“Choosing someone to build your house is a big decision for some. For us there was no question about whom we would choose. The most important quality about a builder is trustworthiness, and when the leader of a company has your full trust, you know that those under him are worthy of respect. Knowing a company follows Christian standards and has the same beliefs as you do is something that is not commonly found and makes a world of difference. Being able to trust that those individuals who are helping you along every step of the building process are of utmost importance. Every person at Cedar Knoll has been incredibly kind and lived up to the great expectation of trust we began this process with. We were helped to stay within budget while being guided into creating our dream home! From the planning to the decorating details, Cedar Knoll has made our dreams of building a house become a reality!” – The Ward Family

“Simplify, simplify, simplify!”

Categories: Quick Delivery Homes | Posted: October 26, 2018

I believe Henry David Thoreau was onto something when he wrote the words “Simplify, simplify, simplify!” in Walden. Tucked away in his little cabin, in the woods of Walden Pond, Thoreau wrote the words “Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify, simplify! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb-nail.” Maybe Throeau knew even then, written over 150 years ago, that we would need to be reminded of these words, and almost daily! Our culture has evolved at such a high-speed pace, most days it’s enough of a task just to try and keep up! Are any of you readers like me? Do you long to get back to simpler times? To reorganize your life, your many belongings, the things that have just accumulated overtime? Thoreau moved to Walden Pond to learn how to live deliberately, to simplify his life. I love this idea! In what way can we learn to live deliberately? For some, this means moving closer to family and what’s important, downsizing their home and belongings, meeting new people and making new friends, and for others it remains just an idea, and that’s okay! Well if you’re looking to invest in your happiness by downsizing your living arrangements and meeting some new friends, then we encourage you to check out our new quick delivery home, the Magnolia Cottage at only 1,313 sq. ft. Designed for simpler living so you can get back the time to invest in the people and activities that bring you happiness. There are so many ways to learn how to live deliberately, it is an ongoing goal, and a worthy goal! Visit Honeycroft Village 55+ Active Adult Community today and see if the idea fits!

1723 Vineyards Opens New Tasting Room

Categories: Commercial Construction | Posted: August 24, 2018

Commercial BuildThis summer Cedar Knoll Builders was privileged to design and construct 1723 Vineyards and Tasting Room, now located and open for business in Landenberg, Pa.  See below for the full article on how owners, Ben & Sarah Cody successfully turned their dreams of connecting people with the products they love into a reality.

READ THE ARTICLE HERE:

Even before Ben and Sarah Cody began planting the first vines of what would eventually become the 11-acre 1723 Vineyards in 2015, the idea of opening a tasting room on the grounds of the historic McMaster Farm in Landenberg was already in their dream pipeline.

It merely had to wait its turn.

“We planted the grapes first because we’re very passionate about growing everything we sell,” Ben said from the winery’s new 600-square-foot tasting room, which had its official opening in early August. “For Sarah and me, it was important that every bottle we sell will allow us to show every customer exactly where that bottle of wine came from.”

The tasting room, Ben said, was part of a three-phase strategy.

“I feel like it’s like a football team – a third offense, a third defense, and a third special teams,” he said. “To be a really good football team, you have to excel at all three phases. In winery terms, it’s a third growing quality fruit, a third developing skills in winemaking, and a third opening up a comfortable tasting room.”

The room, which includes a tasting bar, tables and chairs, and French doors that open to stunning views of the vines, also offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy the winery’s star attractions – 1723 Vineyards Albarino, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin Reserve, Merlot, Muscat Ottonel, Petit Verdot, Reisling, Rose, Sauvignon Blanc and Vidal Blanc. Adjacent to the tasting room, a new 2,000-square-foot production room allows winemaker Gabriel Rubilar to develop wines on location, from grapes grown on the eight-acre McMaster Farm and the three-acre historic Ford Farm in nearby Kemblesville.

“There is a wine here for everybody,” Ben said.

The tasting room will also host a fall lineup that will include food trucks and local musicians; private events; happy hour Fridays; a harvest festival, scheduled for the first weekend in November; and an upcoming farm-to-table event, in partnership with their next-door neighbors, Katt and Mathy, known for their food truck, The Road Rancher.

The tasting room, designed and constructed by Cedar Knoll Builders, was created, in part, as a welcoming door for visitors to know more about the wine they are sampling and purchasing, Sarah said. “We wanted to give people a one-on-one experience, to be welcomed by someone who can speak with them about our wines, talk about the farm and the history of our property, and provide information about exactly where our wines are grown on our farm,” she said. “Our tasting room is also part of a connection with people, in order to know who they are and the names of their children, and to enhance that connection in a place that is warm, comfortable, and has great views.”

The 1723 Vineyards tasting room is open Fridays from 4 to 7 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. Visit www.1723vineyards.com. 1723 Vineyards is at 5 McMaster Blvd., Landenberg. Call 888-330-0526.
