Marrano grand opens the Patios at Windstone community

For homebuyers in search of premiere patio home living accompanied by the benefits of condominium convenience, look no further than Marrano’s new Patios at Windstone community. Nestled along the Onondaga Escarpment, just minutes from the Village of Williamsville, sits Windstone — a charming community featuring 42 patio home sites, only 30 of which remain for purchase after pre-sales.

“As the local pioneer of the patio home concept, I’m thrilled to announce the grand opening of our Windstone community,” said Jim Marrano, executive vice president of operations, Marrano Homes. “We’ve dedicated significant time, resources and heart to make Windstone a place that people want to call home. We are excited by the demand that we’ve seen so far. When buyers have as much passion for our communities as we do, well, that’s about all you can ask for.”

Windstone offers free-standing patio homes with a homeowner’s association to manage all exterior maintenance. In addition, Marrano provides condominium status that entitles Windstone homeowners to significant tax savings. These amenities attract a variety of buyers who all share a common interest for home ownership without the burden of exterior maintenance.

Marrano’s Patios at Windstone community offers a selection of deep home sites, similar to cul-de-sac lots. Typical designs feature a spacious living and dining room combination, two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Owners can even personalize their patio home, working directly with knowledgeable professionals through Marrano’s design center. “Wine cellars, theatre rooms, an arts and crafts room — you name it — we’ll make it happen,” added Marrano.

Windstone’s model home, a 2,071-square foot ranch located at 260 Northill Drive, is open for viewing. Professionally decorated, from the artist’s easel in the sunroom to the flower arrangement on the dining room table, the home features a mid-century, modern chic décor. Coined by Marrano’s interior designers, “It’s where mid-century artiste meets
a modern artist’s gallery.”
