The planned community of Columbia, Md., is home to about 100,000 residents. The 14,000-acre development, begun in 1967, is located midway between Baltimore and Washington and features a mix of housing styles, recreational amenities, retail and commercial development and schools, according to Columbia’s official Web site (www.columbia-md.com).

Patriot Homes Inc., part of the Lennar Family of Builders, is building homes at an active adult community in Columbia known as Snowden Overlook.

Snowden Overlook offers resort-style amenities and low-maintenance housing and will include a community gatehouse with a guard and an 11,000-square-foot clubhouse, now under construction. The clubhouse will contain an exercise room, a sauna, a media room and meeting rooms, and a swimming pool with a children’s pool for visiting grandchildren.

Snowden Overlook residents will also have access to shopping, dining and entertainment in the Columbia area.

Patriot Homes is offering three styles of attached villa homes, each with a first-floor master suite, three additional bedrooms and 21/2 baths. The homes have a mix of vinyl, stone and brick facades, a two-car garage, and up to three finished levels with two-story foyers with hardwood flooring and walk-in closets.

Standard features include 6-inch beaded vinyl siding, a partial stone front, and sodded front and rear yards. Inside, the homes have 9-foot ceilings on the first floor, high-tech wiring, a lower-level plumbing rough-in, two-zone heating and air conditioning, gas heat and gas hot water, 42-inch oak cabinets in the kitchen, and ceramic-tile flooring and a heat lamp in the master bath.

Options include a finished lower level with a recreation room and den, sunrooms, rear room extensions, additional bedrooms, and additional baths. Prices start in the $400,000s.

The Hancock model, with 2,532 finished square feet, is priced from $453,900. This home has a front study off the foyer, which has a knee wall with a decorative column, a closet and a nearby powder room. In the center of the home are an open living and dining room with an optional fireplace and optional sunroom. Next to the living and dining area, a knee wall defines the open kitchen and breakfast area. A pantry and a laundry room are located off the garage. The main-level master suite has a walk-in closet, a linen closet and a private full bath with a large shower.

Two alternate second levels are available, including one with an open den and a computer area overlooking the living room and breakfast area, two bedrooms, a full bath, and storage and attic areas. The other upper-level plan replaces the attic and storage spaces with a fourth bedroom with a walk-in closet and a connecting full bath to the second bedroom and adds a private full bath to the third bedroom.

The Livingston model, with 2,676 finished square feet, is priced from $457,900.

The Jeremy Belknap model, with 2,811 finished square feet, is priced from $466,900.

These two models offer similar floor plans to the Hancock model, adding additional space to the living and dining areas on the main level. Each also offers the two alternate upper-level floor plans and the possibility of a finished lower level.
