Ryan Homes is building approximately 400 single-family homes at Arora Hills, a planned community in Clarksburg, where residents can enjoy 374 acres of preserved open space with streams, parks and nature trails. Plans call for two swimming pools and playing fields.

Each home in this Montgomery County community will include a brick foundation, stoop and stairs, beaded vinyl siding, architectural shingles, professional landscaping and a detached two-car garage. Brick fronts and porches are optional.

Inside, all three models feature four bedrooms; 2 baths; 9-foot ceilings on the first and second levels; hardwood or ceramic-tile flooring in the foyer; crown and chair-rail moldings; a gas fireplace with a marble surround; 42-inch cabinets in the center-island kitchen; ceramic tile flooring in all baths; a master bath with a tub and separate shower; a high-tech wiring package; and gas heat.

The homes have approximately 2,100 to 2,800 finished square feet, with base prices from $409,990 to $449,990.

The Michener model, with 2,500 square feet, is priced from $434,900. This home features a two-story foyer flanked by the living room and dining room, each of which has decorative columns. A butler’s pantry and pantry form the entrance to the center-island kitchen, which opens onto a separate breakfast room. At the rear of the home are a powder room, laundry room and covered rear porch with a wall of windows. Nearby is the family room, which opens onto the hall and the breakfast room.

Upstairs, the master suite has two walk-in closets and a bath with a large tub, a separate shower and a double-sink vanity. Three more bedrooms and another full bath complete this level.

Options include finished lower levels, a morning room, a guest suite over the garage, bay windows, upgraded flooring, interior columns, granite or Corian counters, and tray and cathedral ceilings.
