Winchester Homes is building 773 town homes and single-family homes at Poplar Run in Silver Spring on the site of the old Indian Spring Country Club.

The 308-acre community has 50 percent open green space with more than 70 acres dedicated to the expansion of the Northwest Branch Stream Valley Park. The community has three swimming pools, a clubhouse and miles of walking trails that link to regional trails. Shops and restaurants are nearby, along with the Glenmont Metro station.

Each town home in this Montgomery County community will include a brick front and stoop and a two-car garage.

Inside, both models have three finished levels with three bedrooms and 2½ baths, hardwood flooring in the foyer, 9-foot ceilings on the main level, vaulted ceilings on the second level, crown and chair-rail molding, a gas fireplace, 42-inch maple cabinets in the center-island kitchen, ceramic tile flooring in the baths, a programmable thermostat, and gas water heater.

The homes have approximately 2,000 to 2,300 finished square feet, with base prices from $363,900 to $401,900. Homeowner association fees have yet to be established.

The Granville model, with 2,300 square feet, is priced from $401,900. This end-unit home has steps to the main-level entry foyer, which leads into the open living and dining room. The living room has windows on two sides, a powder room and a double-door closet. At the back of this level are the family room, center-island kitchen and breakfast area.

Upstairs, the master suite has a walk-in closet and a private bath with a double-sink vanity and a shower. Two more bedrooms, a second full bath and a laundry room complete this level.

The lower level has a finished recreation room. Options include tray ceilings, a luxury master bath and a full bath on the lower level.
