Black Rocks Village in Fremont stands out for rural location and affordability


The eat-in kitchen is equally attractive and functional. A beautiful bay window provides a sunny spot for a table and chairs. The maple hardwood cabinets, in a soft fawn tone, feature an impressive mix of solid and glass doors to create visual texture while also providing great storage and display options. And, the breakfast bar works well for casual meals or entertaining.

With new construction come new appliances. These lovely new homes feature a self-cleaning gas range, dishwasher and built-in microwave. For the cook, there is plenty of workspace, but it has been designed so there are no wasted steps. Soft recessed lighting above the cabinets adds to the efficiency and beauty of the kitchen.

The model home features an outstanding master bedroom suite with sliding glass doors that open out to the private deck. It would be wonderful to step outside on a spring morning and enjoy a cup of coffee. Carpeted for comfort, the large bedroom has double closets and a charming en-suite bathroom with a maple hardwood vanity, walk-in shower, and linen closet.

There is a nice second bedroom with a large closet. This would work well as a guest room or could be used as a home office. There is also another full bath with a one-piece fiberglass tub, hardwood vanity, and built-in linen storage.

The efficient floor plan also includes a laundry closet thoughtfully located near the bedrooms and there is an additional linen closet in the hallway. A direct entry from the garage is convenient for bringing in groceries or dry cleaning.

While the one-floor living space is ample, the builder offers a terrific lower level finished family room option. In the model home the family room adds great relaxation or entertainment space. With plenty of room for a large screen television and bar area, it could be the ultimate room for watching sporting events or it could just as easily become a home theater. With a direct walkout to the backyard in most units, windows and access to storage, the lower level is a very flexible space.
