One-acre wooded homesites will be the backdrop for the luxurious homes being built by NVHomes at the Estates at Windsor Park in Lorton, south of Fairfax Station.

Secluded woods surround the community, which is convenient to Virginia Route 123, the Fairfax County Parkway and Interstate 95.

Only 23 homes will be built in this community, each with a base price ranging from the low $900,000s to about $1,100,000. The exterior of each home will feature a brick front, a brick stoop and a two-car side-entry garage.

Inside, the homes include a sunlight-filled two-story foyer with hardwood flooring; hardwood flooring in the powder room, kitchen and breakfast area; recessed lighting, fluted interior columns; and elegant three-piece crown moldings in the formal areas and the upper hall.

The main level of each home has an oak staircase with a “bullnose” first step, French doors leading into a study and a gas fireplace with a marble hearth and surround and a painted Colonial-style mantel.

Nine-foot ceilings grace both the main and second levels. Each kitchen includes 42-inch maple cabinets, a center work island, granite counters and upgraded appliances. All baths feature ceramic-tile floors and tub and shower surrounds, and the master bath includes a soaking tub and separate shower.

The largest model, the Monticello, features a dramatic, open two-story space throughout the center of the home.

The foyer features a split staircase leading to an upper-level gallery, which has a tray ceiling. Fluted columns frame a step-down into the central hall, where additional fluted columns define the opening to the soaring family room.

The family room includes a two-story coffered ceiling, a gas fireplace against one wall and a wall of windows across the back of the house. A second staircase links the family room to the upper level.

At the front of the home, a step-down leads from the foyer into the formal living room on one side, while another step-down leads into the formal dining room on the other side. A butler’s pantry links the dining room with the open kitchen and breakfast area, which includes a walk-in pantry, a built-in hutch and angled walls of windows around the breakfast area.

Adjacent to the kitchen are a mudroom with a seat and closet and a laundry room.

In the opposite corner of the home are a powder room and the private study.

This level can be modified and expanded with a two-story sunroom accessible from the living room and study, a conservatory with windows on three sides, a full bath, a morning room with a cathedral ceiling and an expanded garage.

The upper level features a master suite with double doors leading into a sitting room, a columned entrance into the bedroom, and tray ceilings above the bedroom and bath. The retreat includes a walk-in closet with shelves and a second double-size walk-in closet, along with a shower with a seat, a corner tub and two separate vanities.

Each of three additional bedrooms features a walk-in closet and a private full bath. Buyers interested in having extra bedrooms upstairs can convert the master sitting room to a bedroom or add another bedroom with the two-story sunroom addition.

The lower-level floor plan can be designed to please the buyer. A sample lower-level floor plan includes a recreation room, home office, media room, storage rooms and a second recreation room with a full size wet bar.
