Perhaps I wasn’t paying to much attention but the are essentially all the same floor plan. Our house is 3000 sq ft and have the same number of rooms, even a formal dining room. Not sure why it’s so hard to get a little more creative with floor plans. With some innovation perhaps people would be willing to buy these. At upwards of 500/sq ft I can’t see these selling well at all

These floor plans are well selected which have been tested by the market. It is just too costly to test the market with new floor plans.

The floor plan in and of itself is a great floor plan. I have pretty much the same floor plan. The problem is the value. At some point larger rooms become wasted space. Our great room is pretty large and already feels like wasted space, same thing in our master bedroom (and bath and closet). Our secondary bedrooms are just the right size, any bigger and they would start venturing into wasted space land.

kB already has a quality perception. And trying to get $500/sq ft. As the quote goes, “good luck” (in Albanian accent)

Looks like it. They’ll probably charge you $3-5k to upgrade to slim units that can fit in the sideyard.

Too costly to make it a 3-car garage? At this price point, how are these homes only 2-car garage homes?

was there today.  terrible exteriors.   truly uninspired floorplans.   felt like a 2200 sq ft condo, but stretched out to 4000 sq ft.   provides no more usability (4 bed, tiny loft, one big room downstairs) than a condo.  TINY backyards. 

i don't see who is going to buy these.

So would you say Varenna and Padova are better priced for what they offer?
