John Laing Homes is building 55 neotraditional-style single-family homes at Rose Hill in Rockville, where the residents will find an old-fashioned ambience behind the wrought-iron and stone entrance gate. Just a short walk away is the Rockville Metro station, and residents can also enjoy nearby country clubs and the Rockville Civic Center Park.

Each home in this Montgomery County community features an oversized brick foundation, a brick stoop and walkway, a six-panel front door, a coach lamp, professional landscaping and a two-car garage. Brick or stone-and-stucco facades are optional.

All four models feature four bedrooms; 3 1/2 baths; 10-foot ceilings on the main level; 9-foot ceilings on the second level; crown, chair rail and shadow box moldings; atrium doors to the yard; gas fireplaces and recessed lighting in the family room; a gourmet kitchen with Corian counter tops, built-in desks and computer cubbies and a butler's pantry; a luxury master bath with a soaking tub and separate shower; and gas heat and hot water.

The homes range in size from 2,950 to 3,575 finished square feet, with base prices from $469,990 to $499,990.

The William Morris model, with 3,575 square feet, is priced from $499,990. This home features a grand entrance foyer leading to a circular staircase open to the level above, transom windows, a living room and dining room, a library with double doors, a center-island kitchen with an adjacent breakfast room and a family room or "grand room," and a detached rear garage.

Upstairs, each bedroom has a walk-in closet and a private or connecting bath. The master suite includes an expansive sitting room and a double walk-in closet.

Options available include decks, bay win-dows, skylights, two- or three-sided fire-places, wet bars and other upgrades.
