Essex Homes ‘Madison II’ combines elegance with function

Essex Homes of WNY will open its new “Madison II” at 47 Knoche Way this weekend, Oct. 14-15, from 1 to 5 p.m. The home is located in the Knoche Farm Estates, a growing, single-family home community located off of Milestrip Road near Southwestern Boulevard in Orchard Park.

“Our recent expansion of Knoche Farm Estates has continued to enhance what has become an increasingly successful community development in the Southtowns,” says Greg Nanula, Regional Sales Manager with Essex Homes.

“The Madison II is one of our most popular home plan designs. This particular plan is a favorite with clients because it is economical, yet offers a layout designed to maximize every inch within the home. It’s for those seeking lots of active space without sacrificing the elegance of more formal spaces found in a traditional home,” he said.

The four-bedroom, 2.5 bath home at 47 Knoche Way has 2,834 square feet of living space.

Nine foot ceilings on the first floor create an open, airy atmosphere. Flooring includes richly-colored, birch hardwood floor on this level. The light-filled foyer/hallway opens to a private den with an elegant French door to the left. To the right is a formal dining room.

From there it continues through to the main first floor living area. The design takes advantage of space. The kitchen, great room and sunroom arrangement incorporates an open living plan that is enhanced by lots of light from Andersen windows that extend across the entire back of the home.

A contemporary kitchen features 36” white painted maple cabinets, large-cove crown molding, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and an island with seating.

A ceramic tile backsplash, wood dovetailed drawers with soft-touch guides and an under mount sink with Kohler accents add style, while a large pantry adds lots of storage.

The sunroom extends from the kitchen with a cathedral ceiling and has panoramic views.

Also open to the kitchen is the great room with gas fireplace with a ceramic tile hearth.

The area on the first floor is perfect for everyday living, but when needed, functions beautifully for entertaining family and friends.

Also located on the first floor is a ceramic-tiled mudroom with a large bench and first-floor laundry, both off the kitchen (with access to the garage). There’s also a half bath on the first floor.

Craftsman-style oak railing leads to a spacious second-floor loft that provides an intimate gathering space for the family.

A luxurious master bedroom suite has a box ceiling with crown molding. A huge walk-in closet provides plenty of storage.

The gorgeous en suite master bath has dual vanities, granite countertops, ceramic tile flooring, a private commode and a glass-enclosed, ceramic-tiled shower with seat.

There are three, generously-sized secondary bedrooms with ample walk-in closets. All bedrooms access another full bath with granite countertops and a ceramic-tiled tub/shower combination.

“Knoche Farms provides for lots of variation in lot size and allows homebuyers a selection of ranch, first-floor master and two-story floor plans like the Madison II. Many of the homes nestled amidst the tree-lined streets will offer walkout basements and also provide scenic views of the picturesque pond,” says Nanula.

While it has a country-like setting, Knoche Farms is close to downtown Buffalo, nearby shopping, dining and retail, and New Era Field. For a limited time, prospective buyers can customize a new home with up to $17,000 in free custom options and bonuses as part of Essex Homes’ latest promotion.

Pricing in Knoche Farms begins in the mid-$300s. In addition to weekly open houses, private tours of 47 Knoche Way may be arranged by contacting
Greg Nanula, Regional Sales Manager at 667-7533. Visit to learn more about all Essex Homes homes and communities.
