Buying a new home is one of the most exciting times in your life. When the home you buy is a newly constructed home, you get the added bonus of being able to custom-tailor it to your lifestyle and taste. It’s a remarkable opportunity that every homebuyer dreams about.
Choosing a Home to Suit Your Lifestyle.
The first step is to find a floor plan that suits your day-to-day life. A good place to start is to ask yourself, “How do I live (or want to live) in a home?” Begin with where you spend, or plan to spend, most of your time. For many, this is the kitchen and family room. In addition to the daily need to prepare food, the kitchen is where much of our casual entertaining happens, especially if that space is open to an eating area like a breakfast nook, and the family room. Modern floor plans tend to emphasize these spaces, and they work well for much of our family life. But what about when there are children? Or the children you have turn into teenagers? Is there a space for them to hang out with friends, do homework, play board games or video games, without taking over your main living area? How about a place to which the adults in the household can retreat for fun and relaxation with their friends? Or perhaps a private work space, away from household activity? Is it possible to provide the space for these important activities?
Adding to Your New Home Without Breaking the Budget.
Extra rooms and additions can be expensive and may not be something you can afford on your present budget. Not to worry. Hickory Farms at Berkeley wants to help you add extra value to your new home, and we have a perfect solution: the basement. Now, we’re not talking about a place only suitable for storing your out-of-season gear and holiday decorations. We mean a clean, bright finished space that you can turn into a media room, a craft space, a party room, a “man cave,” a billiards room, a home office. We also offer a powder room or full bath option, adding even more extra value to your home! In addition to the standard poured concrete basements available on many of our home sites, we also offer walk-up (daylight) and walk-out basements in selected locations within the community. Our standard basements can, of course, be finished into extra value rooms, either now or later. But choosing a walk-up or walk-out location gives you even more options. With a daylight basement, windows are larger and stairs are provided to access the rear yard. Walk-out basements are even more versatile, with full-size windows and a sliding glass door at backyard grade level. All basement options are offered either unfinished or finished. There’s truly something for every budget. Contact one of our sales team at 732-915-4847 to learn more about the many extra value options available in a Hickory Farms at Berkeley home!
