The Crest of Alexandria is a community that’s been anxiously awaited by many.
I drive by on my way to the office every day and while it took some time to get the actual building going they are off and running now. The community is located off Telegraph Road just a few minutes from Hilltop Village Center – home to the sought after Wegmans.
The Crest of Alexandria is being constructed on a portion of land that at one point was owned by Hilltop Golf. The Active Adult Community will be home to single family homes, townhomes with elevators, and condos. Once complete it will feature a clubhouse, outdoor kitchen, and yoga area. The clubhouse will be designed to offer social and wellness activities. There will be a fire pit, gardens, Koi pond, and walking trails. The Crest of Alexandria has been thoughtfully designed to encompass nature and serenity while still being minutes to daily conveniences.
We stopped by to check out the townhomes with elevators being constructed by Craftmark Homes. Lori Windsor the sales manager and I worked together in the past and it was great to catch up with her and get the grand tour. We were wowed to say the least – the attention to detail in the floorplan to cater to the 55+ client is impressive. Craftmark really thought out their product and it’s simply beautiful but, also quite functional.
On the ground level you’ll find a 2 car garage, mud room, workshop/flex room, powder room, and spacious rec room. You can take the stairs or the elevator to get to the second floor – your choice! It offers a kitchen fit for any entertainers dream, absolutely gorgeous, cabinet space galore, gas cooktop, Quartz countertops, and GE Stainless Steel appliances. The center island is perfect for gatherings and has room for everyone to sit and watch the chef prepare the meal. No being stuck in the kitchen and missing out on the fun here. The dining room is over 17’ x 12’ and we immediately pictured kids and grandkids gathering around for a family meal. Have a lot of friends you’d want to have over? Plenty of room for everyone to enjoy each other’s company. We can’t forget the family room with a gas fireplace on the 2nd level either, coming in at 22’ x over 13’ it’s the perfect place to relax and unwind or watch your favorite sporting event. Want to enjoy the outdoors? Just step out onto your covered terrace and enjoy the fresh air.
The 3rd floor really impressed with its design as well – again take the stairs or the elevator to get there, your choice!
The master suite is exceptional. It’s very apparent by its size and setup a lot of thought was put into it, including the walk-in closet that has space to accommodate even the biggest shopping fan. There are two additional bedrooms upstairs, the model is staged having one as an office but, both have ample space for queen size beds if you wanted to have two guestrooms. Having the laundry upstairs will be very convenient as well.
Our office is right up the street in Hilltop Village Center and we’ve been watching the neighborhood since they broke ground, it’s really starting to come to life.
