April 15, 2021
Essex Homes of WNY is pleased to announce the grand opening of a new model home at 5368 Marguerites Way in the Northwoods community of Clarence. Located just east of Transit past the intersection of Roll and Shimerville Roads, Northwoods is one of Clarence’s premier communities. The new “Ellington” model is open for viewing every Saturday & Sunday from 1-5 p.m. or by appointment. The announcement was made by Philip J. Nanula, president & CEO of Essex Homes.
“Our new model home in Northwoods showcases a modernized version of our classic ‘Ellington,’ one of our more upscale home plan designs. At over 3,100 sf, this 4-bedroom, 2.5 bath, total ‘Kohler®’ home is the epitome of luxury, beginning with its grand foyer to its ‘spa-worthy’ glamour bath. It is a fine example of elegant craftsmanship combined with everyday functionality,” says Robert Bingel, Regional Sales Manager with Essex Homes.
Visitors will be greeted by a handsome exterior featuring simulated shake shingle siding and stone accents, a covered front porch with crown molding and Acadian-style columns, and an impressive transom window above the front door accented by Essex “signature” trim, decorative glass, and sidelights. Enter through a grand two-story foyer complemented by 9’ ceilings, hardwood floors throughout most of the first floor, and quartz countertops throughout. A private den accented by crown molding and chair rail features elegant 5’ double French doors, while a large formal dining room accented by crown molding, chair rail, and shadow boxes, offers added elegance. The large professional kitchen showcases an island workspace with breakfast bar overhang, staggered 36” tall Homecrest® kitchen cabinets with crown molding, under-cabinet lighting, wood dovetailed drawers with soft doors/drawers, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, and a spacious walk-in pantry to accommodate every culinary need. Just beyond the kitchen is an impressive family room featuring a cathedral ceiling, a spectacular “wall” of windows and a Heat & Glo® raised gas fireplace with “floating mantle” accentuated by crown molding, two wall sconces on either side, and a two-story stone surround. The charming sunroom with cathedral ceiling features transom windows to invite natural light along with a sliding glass door leading to a large concrete patio. First-floor highlights include a ceramic-tiled mudroom with built-in bench, cubbies, and a coat rack, as well as a convenient first-floor laundry and a half bath/powder room accented by an impressive floor-to-ceiling ceramic tile wall. A Lennox® high-efficiency humidifier, air conditioning and air cleaning system offers added comfort and convenience, while a four-camera Dahua® security system with DVR provides both safety and peace of mind.
A handsome craftsman-style oak staircase leads to the second floor, where a luxurious master suite featuring double-entry doors showcases a box ceiling with elegant crown molding that extends throughout the room’s entire perimeter. The master also features a sizable walk-in closet and a luxurious ceramic-tiled glamour bath with Kohler® accents featuring a sliding barn door, dual vanities with quartz countertops, a large soaking tub, a glass enclosed tile shower with bench, and an enclosed commode. Three, large secondary bedrooms on the second floor offer convenient access to the ceramic-tiled main bath with its stylish dual vanities.
“Northwoods is in high demand with our clients and is one of Clarence’s most popular communities. From its winding, tree-lined entryway to its picturesque surroundings and country atmosphere, this community offers something for everyone. The community’s proximity to nearby bike paths, nature trails and area parks, as well as nearby dining, entertainment, and retail outlets, make it a perfect combination of both privacy and convenience. In addition, customers looking to build now can save up to $12,000 in free custom options with our ‘Stack Up Your Savings’ promotion, which is a great way to maximize value in your new home,” says Bingel.
