Devonshire, Wexford, Offer Unique Home Office Solutions Amid Pandemic

September 2, 2020

With the advent of Covid-19, many people have rapidly seen their homes turn into their part or full-time offices and classrooms. For those discerning homebuyers already in the market to build or buy a new home, Essex Homes of WNY offers multiple home plans as part of its Hallmark, Premier and Patio Home series that showcase a diverse cross-section of floor plans offering both specialized home and office solutions.

“The coronavirus pandemic has certainly highlighted the need for more diversified workspaces for those working in a number of professional disciplines, however, Essex Homes has always focused on designing home plans flexible enough to meet the demands of those who require familial spaces mixed with dedicated rooms for privacy and business. Our Hallmark, Premier and Patio Home series, are all examples of floor plans designed with options suited to the needs and wants of today’s discerning homebuyer,” says Philip J. Nanula, president and CEO of Essex Homes of WNY.

The Wexford, the newest Essex home plan to be released within the firm’s Hallmark series, has atypical floor plan offering 2600 sq. ft. of living space, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a den with an approximate 10’ by 12’ footprint. According to Nanula, there are also multiple other home plans in this series offering sizable den or den/dining room “options,” including the Madison II, Reinhardt III with Country Kitchen, and the Richmond, to name just a few. Within the Premier series, prospective homebuyers can enjoy larger-sized dens together with bigger, more diversified spaces along with upscale home selections such as double French doors, crown molding and specialized shelving for added elegance and convenience. Home plans within this series include the popular Devonshire, offering over 3600 sq.ft. of luxury living space with a spacious den of approximately 9’ x 15,’ and a second-floor bonus room ideal for home schooling. Similar plans with den or den/dining combinations include the Easton, Ellington, or Weston, among others. Essex Homes also offers five patio home ranch plans, the Arbor, Berkley, Concorde, Danbury and Eastbrook, some of which offer sizable first floor den options, as well as optional second floors (except Berkley) that may include a spacious loft area with a convenient activity area to complement an additional bedroom and/or main bath.

“At Essex Homes, we take pride in providing more than one way for our clients to customize their new home while maximizing value. At this unique time in our lives, we want to highlight how an ‘Essex-built’ home is designed with flexible spaces that can be adapted to accommodate the need for both private office/work environments and home-schooling. Aside from the classic den that is a popular footprint in many of our home plans, several plans offer spacious second floor lofts that include both a computer “nook” and a sitting area which can function as a dual workspace for more than one person. In addition, many of our homes include or offer the ‘option’ to add a sunroom off the kitchen, a space that can accommodate either an office desk or other furniture suitable for maximizing work/study spaces for one or more persons.

”According to Nanula, one of the best ways to begin the process of visualizing these distinct spaces is by visiting one or more professionally-decorated and furnished Essex models which showcase diverse floor plans and upscale selections, demonstrating how different layouts, products, colors and textures all work together.

“As part of the homebuilding process, all Essex customers receive professional interior design services to assist them in the selection process, along with a Home Buyer’s Guide, professional mortgage assistance, a market analysis of their current home, a closing kit as part of our standard professional services, and the firm’s Triple 24 Warranty – one of the best in the business. Our goal is to provide specialized office spaces that work in tandem with the other floor plan options and amenities our customers want at an affordable price, without sacrificing quality,” says Nanula. 

Essex Homes has fully furnished and decorated models available for viewing at 9072 Bancroft Dr. (Clarence), 72 Tranquility Trail (Lancaster) and 52 Knoche Way (Orchard Park) which are open daily 1-5, closed Thursday and Friday.
