- The Washington Times - Wednesday, November 8, 2006

In the 1960s, when developers first began to design planned communities in the Washington region, part of the concept was to include a wide range of home styles and prices.

While some of the newer developments include affordable homes as well as more expensive properties, not all do. At the Broadlands community in Ashburn, Bozzuto Homes is adding to the supply of affordable homes by converting apartments to condominiums in four-story natural stone buildings surrounded by trees.

With space for singles, couples and even families, these condominiums, which have from one to three bedrooms and one or two baths, are base-priced from $262,400 to $392,400.

Broadlands Village Condominiums residents will enjoy access to a private clubhouse for community events and private parties, a swimming pool, a fitness studio with a connected children’s playroom and a limited number of detached garages.

A shopping center with a grocery store, restaurants, bank, coffee shop and other services is within walking distance of the complex.

Residents can also enjoy membership in the Broadlands Association, which includes such amenities as 150 acres of woodlands and wetlands, the Broadlands nature center and community center, lighted tennis courts, swimming pools and an outdoor amphitheater. Monthly condominium fees range from $191.50 to $281 per month.

The homes have open floor plans with a French door to a patio or balcony, gas cooking, gas heat and gas hot water and a full-size washer and dryer. Some of the homes include a gas fireplace and/or a loft.

The homes all have 9-foot ceilings, ceramic tile flooring in the foyer, 6-foot-tall windows, crown moldings, walk-in closets and ceramic tile flooring and tub and shower surrounds in all the baths.

Each kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, 42-inch maple cabinets, granite counters and ceramic tile floors.

This home, priced from $262,400, features a laundry and storage room off the foyer, a separate living room with a glass door to the patio or deck, a separate dining room, a kitchen, a full bath and a bedroom with two standard closets.

The Persimmon model, with 1,047 square feet, is base-priced from $309,400. This home has columns flanking the foyer entrance, a separate dining room and a living room with a glass door to the patio.
