Meet Patti & George homeowners in Villas at Ashlake in Midlothian VA

There are a lot of reasons that people are coming to the Villas at Ashlake. For Patti and her husband, George , it was all about the floor plans! “Over the last two or three years, every time there was an article in the paper about a new active adult community, we explored it,” says Patti. “We really did our homework. We pored over floor plans from a number of developers. Then we heard about the Villas at Ashlake, and nothing we had seen could touch the Cornerstone floor plans. We thought, ‘Oh my gosh, this is what we’re looking for!’” They found the Ducal floor plan for their dream home.

Patti & George are like many couples who decide they’re ready to move to an active adult community, but can’t quite find something that fits their needs. They wanted a smaller home, but plenty of storage. They wanted a maintenance-free lifestyle, but a sense of community, too. They found all of that and more at the Villas at Ashlake!

“We had explored all of the possibilities in our area, but could not find one that satisfied all our needs and wants until we discovered the Cornerstone Homes communities,” Patti recalls. “The floorplans are just beautiful. And the community amenities are state of the art. My husband liked that all of the outside maintenance of the homes is included, not just landscaping. The deciding factor for George was the large garage. For me, it was the kitchen. The kitchens in the other homes just could not compare!”

Though Patti & George are young baby boomers, they knew a great opportunity when they saw it. “When a community like this is built, people our age start looking around,” notes Patti. “We had seen the clubhouse, pool, and amenities at the Villas at Magnolia Lakes and wanted something comparable. We knew this is what we wanted and where we wanted, and we didn’t want to miss the boat!” They were among the first to buy at Ashlake!

As for the process of building their home, “We’ve enjoyed building a home with Cornerstone from scratch. We liked having the option of building the second floor if we wanted to. We also liked that our home will be zero-entry, which the other builders could not promise. Everyone at Cornerstone has been extremely helpful, and we look forward to our move.”

The Villas at Ashlake will be comprised of 82 single-story, maintenance-free homes from the high $270’s. The boutique 55+ community will feature Cornerstone’s trademark resort-style amenities, including a clubhouse, fitness center, outdoor grill & bar, and walking trails, as well as community vegetable & flower gardens.

About mrwilliamsburg

I love Williamsburg !
Being “Mr. Williamsburg” and starting my web site in 2004 has been a great way for me to help people looking for homes for sale, communities and an “insider knowledge.” of the area.
Turned out I was onto something. Because I offer in-depth information and up-to-the-minute blogging, even international clients have found me. One couple, moving back to the States from France, told me that a post I wrote blog about grocery shopping in Williamsburg convinced them that Williamsburg was the place to be, and that I was the best source by far that they found on the web.
I’m happy to say that I hear similar comments from many of my clients looking for homes throughout Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.
I grew up in Virginia Beach, Va, After attending college, I worked at a number of positions including manager of a land development and construction company and business manager of a cut flower business that we grew in sales from $300,000 to $15 million (we were supplier to Whole Foods and one of the first cut flower suppliers to Costco).
In 2004, it seemed like a good time to simplify my life. I moved my family from Annapolis to Williamsburg. I went into real estate with Liz Moore and Associates, and was one of the initial agents when Liz opened her Williamsburg branch.
My sons Zach and Josh attend Lafayette High School and Hornsby Middle School and are crazy about sports and the outdoors.
I feel lucky to be living the dream, and saving two to four hours by not driving on the DC beltway every day. So, I can now spend my time with family while concentrating on learning — and sharing — information about living in Williamsburg.
In real estate, no two people or transactions are the same. Everything’s a challenge, and I’m rewarded every time in close a transaction and have the opportunity to see the smiles on clients’ faces.
