Buyers searching for a new home in a community with a rural ambience may want to visit Red Cedar West, a development of 38 single-family homes near Leesburg in Loudoun County.

Zoned as a hamlet, Red Cedar West will have guaranteed open space and spacious homesites that range from 1 acre to a 10-acre conservancy lot for one home.

The Gulick Group, builder of Red Cedar West, is recognized for distinctive designs that emphasize open spaces and natural light, along with attention to detail and craftsmanship. At Red Cedar West, four models are available, base-priced from $839,900 to $969,900, with 3,438 to 4,854 finished square feet.

Standard features at Red Cedar West include an all-brick exterior with Hardiplank siding used when necessary on some elevations, plus a brick stoop and brick steps. Each home will have a two-car garage, with a three-car side-entry garage available on some homesites.

Inside, the homes will have 9-foot or higher ceilings on the two lower levels, with 8-foot or higher ceilings on the upper level.

Hardwood flooring will be placed in the foyer, library, living room, dining room, kitchen, morning room and mudroom, with glazed tile flooring in all baths.

The homes will have oak stairs, crown moldings and a remote-controlled gas fireplace in the family room with a custom-designed wood mantel and a ceramic-tile or slate surround and hearth.

The kitchen will include 42-inch wood cabinets, a choice of granite or Corian counters and upgraded appliances. Each master bath will include a tub, Corian counters and a separate glass-enclosed shower.

The Winthrop Manor model, with 4,854 square feet, is base-priced from $969,900. This home features a front porch leading to a double front door, which opens onto a grand two-story foyer with a curving staircase winding around a two-story rotunda.

Straight back is a two-story octagonal family room with decorative columns, a fireplace and dramatic walls of windows. Decorative columns frame the entrances to the living room and dining room on either side of the foyer.

Other main-level rooms include a corner library with optional French doors and a transom.

On the opposite side of the family room are the open morning room and center-island kitchen, plus a butler’s pantry and rear staircases to the upper and lower levels.

Between the kitchen and the three-car garage are a laundry room; a walk-in pantry; and a mudroom with a bench, a closet and a walk-in closet. The laundry room also has an exterior door leading to the back yard.

Buyers can add a wraparound deck, a sunroom, a second powder room and a first-floor guest suite with a full bath to the main level.

Upstairs, double doors lead off the gallery overlooking the foyer and family room into the grand master suite. The master suite has a sitting room with decorative columns, a coffered ceiling and two walls of windows in the bedroom, plus two walk-in closets and a dressing area near the master bath.

The second bedroom has a linen closet, a walk-in closet and a private full bath. The third and fourth bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet, share a connecting bath with a double-sink vanity.

Buyers can choose to add a fifth bedroom with walk-in closet and private full bath by converting the family room to a one-level space.

The lower level can be finished with a bedroom, an exercise room, a media room, a recreation room, a game room, a wet bar, a wine cooler and a full bath.
