You can almost smell the snow today! I find it hard to believe that Christmas is over and within a couple of days we will be rolling into the new year of 2012, mentally I am trying to prepare my brain for the change. Every January it takes me at least a week to remember to date everything with the appropriate year! Nonetheless, I hope you all had a fantastic Holiday spent with family and friends this past week. Before we bring out those bran new calendars though, I would like to announce the December Home of the Month! This month our pick is the Wisteria Twin Cottage available at Honeycroft Village a 55+ Active Adult Community. Beautiful, nostalgic, and charming are three words that best describe the simple elegance of The Wisteria. One foot in the door you receive a sense of comfort found in this unassuming, imperfect style country cottage. Embodying a simple elegance while combining the old/new decorating style this new home is absolutely stunning in all of its simple beauty. Featuring a two bedroom, two bath, two-story living floor plan with optional finished basement this cottage is everything a cozy home should be. The Wisteria is located in the Octorara Area School District and home to beautiful, historic Chester County Pennsylvania. Situated just outside of Lancaster County, views from the Wisteria include picturesque country farmlands and rolling hills, Amish life and culture, and home of the arts and renowned artist, Andrew Wyeth. Honeycroft Village amenities include, walking trails, on-site Community Club House complete with a state of the art fitness center, indoor pool and spa, outdoor patio, conference rooms, and gathering room. During this Holiday Season, I thought it only appropriate to select a home that embodies community and The Wisteria is everything community. At Honeycroft Village, you’ll receive not just a house, but a home and lovely community filled with true heart and soul.

Ahh the joy of custom home building! This season we were given the joy of building a beautiful custom home located in the Coatesville District Area. This beautiful two-story home was a work of art from the beginning. From the customer’s initial design to final completion this home was pieced together like a magnificent 3-D puzzle. Allowing the home to personify those deeming it their new home, the final product was a beautiful home embodying grandeur, elegance, and comfort. Words to capture this one-of-a-kind home seem inadequate, but as I sit here at my keyboard, I know that I have to try. Apart from the overall design and layout of this home, the beauty to be recognized is found in the smaller details, because it is in these details that a house becomes a home. What you’ll find is a beautiful stone inlay kitchen island with beautiful hand-selected granite countertops, and stainless steel cook-top stove and double wall oven. Their great room displays a beautiful, tall stone fireplace with matching wall sconce lights to give a warm aurora. Sparkling chandeliers, three-piece crown moulding, hardwood flooring, and wainscoting leave you feeling a little more elegant and refined, I know I walked a little taller when I was given the final tour! The master bedroom suite is something to be admired as well, for it features an octagon tray ceiling, sitting room area, his and her granite counter sinks, walk-in tile shower and flooring, additional laundry compartment, and a beautiful garden tub. This home was such a joy and we are so thankful for the opportunity. We look forward to hearing how our happy customers spent their first Christmas in their new home. For more custom photos on this new home, be sure to check out our Custom Homes Gallery page over the course of the next week.

Every Christmas my sister and I turn into the biggest suckers for all of those semi-cheesy, heart-warming Christmas Hallmark movies. We’ve sort of developed a tradition of watching all of our favorites each Christmas accompanied with a warm bag of popcorn and giant Mainecoon cat Leo to warm our sides. If I were to choose my favorite Hallmark movie, hands down it would be “The Christmas Cottage.” The movie follows the early life of painter, Thomas Kinkade in his hometown of Placerville, California. Between the streetlights, carolers, Christmas pageants, and family dinners this movie leaves you feeling all geared up for the Christmas season and all the love that comes with it. This Christmas, in our own small town of Cochranville, Pennsylvania, Honeycroft Village will embody a little Christmas spirit and love as well. December 20th from 7-9 pm the 5th grade class from Assumption Blessed Virgin Mary School in West Grove will be caroling through the community. So leave those light posts on if you would like to hear beautiful little voices carol a little Christmas cheer!
