The Top StyleCraft Community Amenities to Enjoy this Spring

March 25, 2022

There’s something special about spring. In our communities, the grass gets greener, the flowers start to bloom, and winter coats get packed away until next year. After a long cold winter full of too-short days, spring is when many of us finally poke our heads out the front door, after nearly hibernating through the winter.

With spring in the air, you’re probably experiencing that familiar itch to get out of the house and spend more time outside. For StyleCraft homeowners, it’s the perfect opportunity to fully embrace all that our community amenities have to offer. And if you’re in the market for a new home, consider what neighborhood perks and amenities come along with it. In StyleCraft communities, welcoming spring with open arms is easy, and just steps from your front door.

GATHER AT COMMUNITY CLUBHOUSES

Our floor plans are spacious, but sometimes a gathering is just a bit larger than you want to host in your home. Enter: the community clubhouse. These common spaces are strategically located in our communities so that they’re easily accessed by homeowners. The features of the community clubhouses vary a bit from one community to the next, but you’ll often find indoor lounge areas, kitchens, patios, and in some cases fitness centers. In most of our communities, you can rent the clubhouse for birthday parties, neighborhood gatherings, and holiday parties. In fact, community clubhouses make spending time with family, friends, and neighbors-turned-friends, downright convenient – you don’t even have to clean your house first!

If a community clubhouse has major appeal, consider Mosaic at West Creek, The Overlook at Hancock Village, Kennington, Greenwich Walk Villas, and Villas at Iron Mill.

FEED A CROWD IN OUTDOOR KITCHENS

If you’re hosting book club at the community club house or are getting to know your neighbors, at some point, stomachs start to growl. No need to relocate back to your home to use your personal kitchen when you can throw dinner on the grill right from the community club house. The outdoor kitchen makes entertaining more enjoyable because you don’t have to hit pause on socializing while you prepare a delicious meal.

TAKE A STROLL ON WALKING TRAILS

If you’re ready to dust off your sneakers now that spring is in the air, the walking trails at our communities provide the perfect opportunity to stretch your legs and get your steps in. Walking trails can be found in Gateway, Expressions, and Freestyle communities because we know that walking is one of the most beneficial amenities we can provide. At Greenwich Walk Villas and Mosaic at West Creek, homeowners can spend spring enjoying the miles of scenic, tree-lined trails. This makes starting a consistent walking routine with a neighbor or your dog a breeze to stick to! Alternatively, at The Overlook at Hancock Village, you can stroll with a purpose, because walking trails take you to nearby shopping and dining conveniences at the Hancock Village Shopping Center.

Ready to up your daily step count without leaving your neighborhood? You’ll find this amenity at Greenwich Walk Villas, The Overlook at Hancock Village, Villas at Iron Mill, and Mosaic at West Creek.

COMMUTE-FREE DOG PARKS

If you haven’t been taking your four-legged friend on as many walks as they deserve, a dog park can be a welcome way for them to burn off excess energy and play with other dogs in the neighborhood. Public dog parks are scattered throughout Richmond, but if you don’t live near one, you might not make it there as often as you’d like. Dog lovers can rejoice because we’ve built a dog park right into our Mosaic at West Creek community! Space is limited at Mosaic at West Creek, so if a built-in dog park is a priority for you and your pup, get in touch with us today.

RELAX IN OUTDOOR LOUNGE AREAS

Sure, you could curl up on the couch indoors and relax but kicking up your feet outdoors takes recharging to the next level. In nearly every StyleCraft community, we create outdoor lounge areas for our homeowners to enjoy and when the spring temperatures roll in, these outdoor spaces are a hot commodity. Some communities feature petite gathering spots tucked into the community’s park, others boast large hardscaped patios complete with a firepit, and others keep it simple with open-air pavilions and comfortable seating. Whatever format it takes, these outdoor lounge areas allow StyleCraft homeowners to take in the views, enjoy good company, and Live Up outdoors this spring.

Outdoor lounge areas can be found in a variety of our communities, including Saunders Station Townes, Mosaic at West Creek, Villas at Iron Mill, Greenwich Walk Villas, and The Overlook at Hancock Village.

RECLAIM YOUR WEEKENDS WITH INCLUDED LAWN CARE

For all the beauty that comes along with spring temperatures, for most homeowners there’s also a never-ending to-do list necessary to maintain their yard. At many of our StyleCraft communities, you can enjoy all the benefits of spring in Richmond without any of the time-consuming yard work that’s required to make your lawn look nice. That’s right. Mowing, hedge-trimming, flower pruning… we take care of all of it for communities that include lawn care. This perk is included in all our Freestyle communities and in select Gateway communities including The Village at Millers Lane, The Overlook at Hancock Village, and The Outpost at Brewers Row.

The amenities we build into StyleCraft communities encourage homeowners to Live Up year-round. When you visit one of our Model Homes, our New Home Sales Consultants will give you a peek into each community’s amenities so that you can picture yourself Living Up and enjoying season after season in your new home.
