Van Metre Homes is building 41 single-family houses at Southampton Station in Springfield, a community of homes geared to move-up buyers near the Franconia-Springfield Parkway, Interstate 95 and the Springfield Metro station.

Each home in this Fairfax County community will be built on a homesite of 15,000 square feet and will feature six-inch beaded vinyl siding, a brick stoop, an exterior post lamp and a two-car garage. Brick fronts are optional.

Inside, all four models feature four bedrooms; 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 baths; 9-foot ceilings on the main level; hardwood flooring in the foyer and powder room; a gas fireplace; crown and chair-rail moldings; a ceiling medallion and chandelier in the dining room; 42-inch cabinets, Corian counters and upgraded appliances in the center-island kitchen; a master bath; rough-in plumbing for a lower-level bath; gas hot water; and dual-zone gas heat.

The homes range in size from 3,157 to 4,100 finished square feet, with base prices from $499,900 to $569,900.

The Fitzgerald model, with 3,329 square feet, is priced from $509,900. This home features an elegant foyer with decorative columns defining the living room and dining room on either side, a two-story family room, a center-island kitchen with a breakfast area and an adjacent laundry room, and a corner study. A sunroom can be placed off the kitchen or living room.

Upstairs, the master suite has a step-down sitting area, wood columns, a double walk-in closet, and a luxury bath with a corner soaking tub and separate shower. The second and third bedrooms share a hall bath or optional shared bath, while the fourth bedroom has a private bath.
