Parks, tennis courts and the Glenmont Metro Station are within blocks of the new community of 44 luxury houses under construction by the Porten Cos. at Manor Spring in Silver Spring.

Sited on cul-de-sacs and surrounded by trees, these homes feature classic exterior architecture.

Each home in this Montgomery County community will include 6-inch beaded vinyl siding, professional landscaping and a two-car garage. Brick fronts are optional.

Inside, each of the four models includes four or five bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, 9-foot ceilings on the main level, hardwood flooring in the foyer and powder room, a remote-controlled gas fireplace with a slate hearth and surround, a luxurious master bath with a soaking tub and separate shower, 4-by-4-inch ceramic-tile flooring and tub and shower surrounds, multimedia wiring, a center-island kitchen and gas heat and hot water with two-zone heating and air conditioning.

The houses range in size from 1,787 to 3,320 finished square feet, with base prices from $336,400 to $398,400.

The Cambridge II model, with 2,770 finished square feet, is priced from $382,400. This home features a two-story foyer with a study on one side with optional French doors, a formal living room, a formal dining room and a center-island kitchen with a breakfast area adjacent to a large step-down family room. A mudroom links the garage and kitchen. Upstairs, the 29-foot-deep master suite features dual walk-in closets, a separate sitting room and a luxurious bath that includes a separate shower and a soaking tub with windows above.

Three additional bedrooms share a hall bath, or a third bath could be added to the second bedroom. A laundry room is located off the upstairs hall.

Options include sun rooms, finished lower levels, coffered or tray ceilings, bay windows and additional baths.
