Village Crest, an active-adult community being built by Pulte Homes, offers recreational amenities to its residents and something more: a convenient location close to historic Ellicott City.

Quaint shops and tempting restaurants are available in Ellicott City, along with business and medical centers. For buyers who enjoy golf, nearby courses include Waverly Woods Golf Course, the Timbers of Troy Golf Course and the Turf Valley Country Club.

Each household at Village Crest must include at least one member 55 or older. Some 171 villa-style homes are planned, each with a first-floor master suite. Amenities planned for the community include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, a fitness center and a community clubhouse.

Two floor plans will be offered at Village Crest, each including a concrete driveway and front walk, a two-car garage, a six-panel entry door, a shrub package and a sodded yard.

Inside, the homes feature hardwood flooring in the foyer and powder room; 9-foot ceilings on the first floor; gas heat; central air conditioning; two multimedia outlets; one Category Five outlet; two-panel interior doors; oak stair railings; and crown, chair-rail and shadow-box moldings in the foyer, dining room and library.

The homes have three bedrooms and 21/2 baths with 6-by-6-inch ceramic-tile flooring in the full baths. The kitchen includes 42-inch oak cabinets and a self-cleaning gas range.

The Morgan model, with 2,357 finished square feet, is base-priced at $442,990. This home has a foyer with a vaulted ceiling, a formal dining room, a kitchen and breakfast area, a powder room, and a great room with an optional fireplace.

A sunroom can be added off the great room. This level also has a master suite with an optional boxed ceiling; a walk-in closet; and a bath with a tub, separate shower and double-sink vanity. A utility and laundry room is adjacent to the garage entrance to the home.

Upstairs, a home office is open to a hobby room, which overlooks the foyer. Two additional bedrooms, each with a sloping ceiling, and a full bath complete this level.

The lower level can be finished with a recreation room, study and bath in addition to the storage space.

The Milton model, with 2,249 finished square feet, is base-priced at $464,990. This home has a side-entry garage, with a foyer entrance into an open floor plan with knee walls and decorative columns to define the dining room and adjacent great room. The great room has an optional vaulted ceiling and can be expanded with a sunroom addition.

On the opposite side of the foyer are the kitchen and breakfast area. The main level also has a master suite with an optional boxed ceiling; a walk-in closet; and a bath with a tub, separate shower and a double-sink vanity. A library and a powder room are nearby, along with a laundry room.

Upstairs, the Milton includes a home office and two more bedrooms connected by a full bath. The third bedroom features a deep dormer sitting area.

The lower level can be finished with a recreation room, a study, a bath and a game room, in addition to the storage space.
