What is Arts and Crafts?

When you are out driving around looking for Roanoke new homes, you might be completely surprised by a totally different style of home. It’s not the typical Colonials you expect to see in neighborhoods like Hampshire, The Groves or Roselawn Homes at Stone Manor. The style is Arts & Crafts, also known as Craftsman. It originated in the late 1800’s to show that simplicity could be just as beautiful as ornate, and it is not limited to just architecture but also encompasses interior design. The style has evolved over the years in different regions of the country. Boone Homes has made a commitment to not only offer Arts & Crafts style on the exterior, but to carry the style throughout the home.

Autumn in the Star City

Autumn is a beautiful time in the Roanoke Valley. The Star City is surrounded by mountains that explode with vivid colors this time of year. A drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway in the fall can be breathtaking. Owners of many Roanoke new homes, especially those living in The Groves, a Boone Homes neighborhood located in Southwest County, don’t need to get in their vehicles to appreciate the beauty. Not only do many homes in The Groves back up to the Blue Ridge Parkway, but the neighborhood features walking trails overlooking the Parkway. Imagine taking a walk with your family on a crisp fall day and taking in the beauty that surrounds your new Boone home. To me that seems like a perfect relaxing weekend afternoon and you would not even have to leave your neighborhood.

Golfing Paradise within Your Reach!

What would it be like if one could spend the rest of life in a golfing paradise? You know, the kind of golfing paradise with a course within a leisurely drive of a golf cart? A kind of paradise that does not sacrifice luxury, accentuates lifestyle and provides one the freedom to golf without concern for their home. Play the front nine holes in the morning, drive your golf cart home for lunch, and then back to the club to make the turn. After the round is complete bring the buddies home for an impromptu grilling seminar by chef You. How about making the stakes higher and say that the golf course needs to have placed on the Golf Digest Best list? Higher yet? How about require the community be located within a stone’s throw of metropolitan convenience? Look no further, I’ve found your new paradise.

3 Showcase Homes: The Best Things Happen In Groups

WC-20-Bancroft-kitchen5-300x200.jpg (6)
Some of the best things in life happen in groups. Think about it. Three chocolate bars shared with another friend are better than trying to share two fun-size bars. I haven’t read the fine print, but there must be a no share policy written on the bag of each fun size candy bar, simple candy bar ethics. Another example, a gift certificate for a double-mini-cake-doughnut with pink frosting and white wedding bead sprinkles alongside a frappe places higher on the good gift list than just a coffee. Boone Homes has applied this very reasoning to building Richmond new homes. Why build one, when you can build three and make them really sweet. Let me explain.
