While some buyers of upscale homes are searching for a swath of land to call their own — a place where the nearest neighbor is acres away — others want the luxury of a sophisticated home with a convenient location.

At Tysons Chase at Suncrest, Marquis Custom Homes is building an enclave of 31 homes on easy-to-maintain homesites within minutes of the shops and restaurants and movie theaters of Tysons Corner and Old Town Vienna.

Commuters have easy access to Interstate 66, Virginia 123 and the Capital Beltway from this location.

The homes at Tysons Chase, base-priced from $1,249,900 to $1,549,000, include an extensive list of features and may be customized through architectural changes. Buyers can also choose to personalize their home with an elevator, a second master suite and changes to the included flooring, cabinetry and appliances.

The exterior of the homes at Tysons Chase include a brick front or 81/4-inch beaded Hardiplank siding, brick water tables on all four sides, a brick stoop, professional landscaping with sodded front and side yards and a finished three-car side-entry garage.

Inside, the homes have 9- and 10-foot ceilings, a two-story foyer, finished-in-place hardwood flooring on the main level, a masonry or direct-vent fireplace, crown and chair-rail moldings and wainscoting. Both the main and secondary staircases are oak.

The homes also include a security system, a laundry room with cabinets, a structured wiring package, designer lighting including recessed lighting and art niches.

The main level of each home includes both formal and informal powder rooms, and all the baths have ceramic tile flooring. The master bath features a tub, a separate glass-enclosed shower and a raised vanity with a granite top.

The kitchen in each home has upgraded stainless steel appliances, granite counters, a pantry with wood shelves and a butler’s pantry with granite counters.

The Benton model, priced from $1,549,000, has a graceful covered front porch with columns. The two-story foyer has decorative columns framing the entrance to the formal living room and an arched entrance into the two-story rotunda. An arched entrance also leads into the formal dining room, which has a wide bay window. The formal powder room is located off the rotunda.

A butler’s pantry links the dining room with the open center-island kitchen, which has a breakfast area and three sets of windows. Decorative columns define the hexagonal family room, which has walls of windows, a coffered ceiling and a fireplace. Just beyond the family room are a corner den with a bay window and a mudroom leading to the garage.

The master suite occupies about half of the upper level, with double doors leading off the rotunda into a large bedroom with a wide bay window. Adjacent to the bedroom is a private sitting room with multiple windows and a doorway into the dressing area, which has his-and-hers walk-in closets.

The master bath features columns and arched ceilings above a tub, two separates vanities and a large shower.

The second and third bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet, share a connecting bath with a double-sink vanity.

Buyers can opt to separate the vanities so that each bedroom has a private vanity. The fourth bedroom has a walk-in closet and a private full bath. This level also includes a laundry room.

Buyers can choose to finish the lower level with a fifth bedroom with an adjoining bath and a walk-in closet, a recreation room, a bar, a wine cellar, a media room and an exercise room.
