May 7, 2021
Essex Homes of WNY is pleased to announce the grand opening of a new model home at 5 Northfield Lane in Lancaster’s Cross Creek Estates. Located off Pavement Road between Peppermint Road and Middlebury Lane, the new “Wexford” model is open for viewing Saturdays through Wednesdays (closed Thursdays & Fridays) from 1-5 p.m. or by appointment. The announcement was made by Philip J. Nanula, president & CEO of Essex Homes.
“The ‘Wexford’ is the most recent design to be added to Essex Homes’ inventory of over 30 buildable home plans. At over 2800 sq.ft., this 4-bedroom, 2.5 bath model offers an impressively open concept layout, along with an array of upscale amenities and fine craftsmanship. We are excited to open this new model in Cross Creek Estates which offers a family-friendly environment in one of North Lancaster’s most popular communities. Cross Creek’s many desirable lots and its picturesque, natural surroundings are ideal for those seeking a more private neighborhood setting without sacrificing location, says Robert Bingel, Regional Sales Manager with Essex Homes.
Visitors to 5 Northfield Lane will be greeted by a handsome exterior featuring white, maintenance-free vinyl siding with black windows; charcoal stone accents; a covered front porch; and a stylish front door accented by Essex “signature” trim, decorative glass, and sidelights. A welcoming, open foyer is complemented by 9’ first floor ceilings, luxury vinyl plank flooring on the entire first floor, and quartz countertops throughout. Just off the foyer is a private den (or dining room) with elegant, double French doors accentuated by fine crown molding and chair rail. Beyond the foyer is a large professional kitchen featuring an incredible 12’ island with seating on either side, ample storage, a functional open bookshelf end cabinet, durable quartz countertops, and a stunning marble mosaic backsplash. Highlights include staggered, 36” Homecrest® painted maple cabinets with crown molding; under-cabinet lighting; wood dovetailed drawers with soft-close doors/drawers; top-of-the-line, black stainless-steel appliances; and a spacious walk-in pantry for every culinary need. A modern message center with quartz countertop and built-in wine rack is located adjacent to the kitchen, providing a functional space for everyday tasks. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious family room featuring crown molding and a sleek Heat Glo® gas fireplace with ceramic fiber stones and tile surround. A bright sunroom with cathedral ceiling offers an abundance of natural light via its large transom windows and sliding glass door which opens to a large concrete patio.
First-floor highlights of this newly built “Wexford” include a must have mudroom with built-in bench, cubbies, and coat rack; a convenient first-floor laundry; and a half bath/powder room with Kohler® accents. A Lennox® high-efficiency heating and air conditioning system offers added comfort and convenience, while a four-camera Dahua® security system with DVR provides both safety and peace of mind. Ceiling speakers with volume control are also installed in the den, sunroom, family room and master bedroom for added enjoyment. One distinctive feature of the Wexford is its U-shaped, Craftsman-style oak staircase that is conveniently situated next to the family room and leads to a fully carpeted second floor and an inviting loft offering ample activity space. Just off the hallway, a luxurious master suite showcases a box ceiling with crown molding, two walk-in closets, and a stylish master bathroom. The bathroom features dual vanities with quartz countertops, a “spa-worthy” 7’ x 4’ tile shower with floor-to-ceiling mosaic accents and 18” tile bench seat, as well as an enclosed commode. Three, large secondary bedrooms offer convenient access to a sizable, tiled main bathroom with an oversized vanity and linen closet.
