The resortlike golf-course community of Lansdowne in Leesburg features the Potomac Club, which has indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, teen and children's centers, a ballroom, and a state-of-the-art business and conference center. Van Metre Homes is building about 300 traditional single-family homes here on quarter-acre lots.

Each home in this Loudoun County community will include James Hardie siding, a post lamp, a two-car or three-car garage and fiber-optic wiring. Brick and stone fronts are optional.

Inside, all five models feature four or five bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, 9-foot or 10-foot ceilings on the first floor, crown and chair-rail moldings, hardwood flooring in the foyer and powder room, a remote-controlled gas fireplace with a marble surround, French doors with transom windows for the library, 42-inch cabinets and Corian counters in the kitchen, a master bath with a soaking tub and separate shower, dual-zone gas heat, and gas hot water.

The homes range in size from 3,523 to 4,253 finished square feet, with base prices from $479,900 to $562,400.
