Parkwood Homes is building two main home series in Stapleton right now & they have homes available in each. This post will give you a quick overview of each series and then link to a recent blog post Parkwood did that outlines where they’re building now.
If you’re not familiar with Parkwood Homes they build timeless homes that will remind you of the character and charm of old homes on the East Coast. You can check out our Parkwood Pinterest board to get sense of their style.
In addition to their style they are also unique in that they are Stapleton’s only semi-custom builder. When you build with Parkwood you can meet with their home designer and customize the home to fit your needs, including moving walls and making changes to the floor plan. You can’t change the exteriors of the home but on the inside you really can make it your own, which is unique. With the other builders you can pick from their pre-determined options (for example…this room can be a study with french doors or a bedroom with a closet…you pick) but you can’t make many custom changes. To see some examples of Parkwood customizations check out two recent buyer experiences: Trent and Emily’s experience & Ramsey and Mikol’s experience.
Single Family Homes
Parkwood has two variations of single family homes that they build, the Lane Homes and the Shenandoah Collection. They are very similar, the main difference is the Lane collection has an alley loaded garage and the Shenandoah series has a front facing garage. Both have pros and cons, for example the front facing garage allows more usable backyard space, so it really just comes down to your personal preferences.
These homes typically have 2,300 – 3,000 sf above grade not including the optional finished basements. Most plans allow for additional square footage in the form of a third floor loft or a room over the garage. There is a wide range in pricing, with “all in” prices ranging from the $600k’s to the $1.2M range, depending on which plan you go with and the upgrades you select. The homes are typically on large lots (by Stapleton standards) which means sizes of 5,000 sf to 8,000 sf.
Want to check out their floor plans, renderings and specifications? Here you go:
Because Parkwood has so many plans and so many exterior elevations (meaning how the home looks from the exterior) I’d suggest meeting with them if any of these plans look good to you. There are a lot of options that aren’t shown on-line.
There are a few floor plans I want to draw your attention to.
First, the “Asheville” plan in the Shenandoah series has been their best seller for the past few years. It still has the timeless character of the other homes but it features a more open concept main level that many of today’s buyers really want.
Second, the “Hawthorne” plan is a relatively new plan starting in the $500k’s. This is a great option for buyers who love the Parkwood style but don’t have the budget to match the price tag that comes along with the larger floor plans.
Don’t forget to check out the link at the end of this post to see where Parkwood is building these homes now.
Parkwood also has a town home collection known as the Beacon Hill Collection that they’ve been building in Stapleton for the past few years. These homes are roughly in the 2,500 – 2,700 sf range, not including the optional finished basements. These plans are three stories and have 2 car garages, small yards, mostly open floor plans on the main level and some even have 3rd floor decks. One of their newest evolutions on these plans will be covered third story decks so keep an eye out for that soon.
There is one main floor master bedroom plan and a second one being added soon.
Like the pricing on the single family homes, the town home all in pricing is also a wide range. These town homes will typically end up at the $600k’s but they have homes closing in the high $500k’s to high $800k’s. There is a lot of variation in the pricing which is affected by the plan you choose and the upgrades and customizations you select throughout the process. Love this series but it doesn’t fit the budget? They’ll have a two story plan starting in the $400k’s coming soon.
So, if you like what you see in either collection above be sure to check out this recent blog post from Parkwood outlining what they have available right now in the Wicker Park and Beeler Park areas of Stapleton.
