Making progress!

Each day, the view down Rose Wilder Lane gets a little better as all 5 homes are roaring along! Siding has been going up on several of the homes, and though it all looks uniform now, the street will soon be an array of beautiful colors.

DESIGN SPOTLIGHT: Interior Features

Interior Finishes for Earl's CourtWe have been working with our design team and project architect to begin outlining some of the high-end features that will make each of the Earl’s Court homes so special.  Features such as open floor plans, thoughtfully designed storage, natural light and creative architectural details are just some of the interior details that will make these Old Village homes stand out.  Visit our project website to see pictures illustrating these finishes!

DESIGN SPOTLIGHT: Pocket Neighborhoods

Sample Cottage for Earl's Court, Mount PleasantWe wanted to share with our readers a story that AARP recently wrote a on a new real estate development trend called pocket neighborhoods.  These neighborhoods are popping up all over the country and are usually defined as neighborhoods made up of smaller, cottage style homes on small, well-designed lots.  The neighborhoods are located close to urban centers (within walking distance of shops and restaurants) and emphasize community involvement by encouraging residents to get to know one anther.  We couldn’t love this idea more–and it is loosely the model that we’re basing Earl’s Court off of!  With its location in the heart of the Old Village, the homes are Earl’s Court will be located near parks, gathering spaces, shops and churches.  Stroll to nearby Shem Creek for lunch on the water, go for an evening jog on the Pitt Street Bridge or visit the weekly Farmers Market to pick up local fruits and vegetables for dinner.  It’s all within reach from Earl’s Court!  To read more on the concept of pocket neighborhoods as written by AARP, visit their website or for more information on Earl’s Court visit The Cassina Group.
