Essex Homes shows its ‘Weston’ model in the Northwoods community

Essex Homes will show its first model home built within the Northwoods community of Clarence at 5379 Briannas Nook.

Part of the builder’s “Premier Series” of homes, this classic version of its two-story “Weston” plan features 2,747 square feet with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and array of today’s popular upscale amenities.

Located off Marguerites Way just E. of Transit past the intersection of Roll and Shimerville Roads, Northwoods is one of Clarence’s newest single-family home developments.

The beauty of this new home on Briannas Nook is enhanced by its picturesque and private surroundings. The community is entered via a long winding road along a heavily treed, lush green landscape with nearby nature trails, public walking and bike paths.

“We chose to build in Northwoods due to growing demand for upscale homesites in neighborhoods with prime Clarence locations. The ‘Weston’ is one of our newest home plans and showcases a classic two-story design along with a range of amenities perfect for today’s growing families. It’s one of the reasons we chose this plan from our inventory of over 30 home designs. We wanted to offer something practical to meet the while adding to the existing sophistication and character of this growing community,” says, Robb Fitchlee, Regional Sales Manager with Essex Homes of WNY.

Visitors are greeted by a professionally landscaped setting and handsome exterior of decorative stone accents. Maintenance-free vinyl siding in soft gray tones is enhanced by black shutters and a welcoming covered front door entryway featuring Essex “signature” trim, decorative glass and sidelights.

A two-story foyer has 9’ ceilings creating an open, airy space. Preverco’s™ prefinished, natural ash hardwood flooring runs throughout most of the main floor including the foyer, hallway, dining room, sunroom, kitchen/dinette and butler’s pantry.

To the left of the foyer, an elegant formal dining room (or den) adorned with crown molding and chair rail leads into a sizable butler’s pantry accented by a ceramic tile backsplash.

Just beyond the pantry is a large professional kitchen featuring an island breakfast bar accentuated by granite countertops, 36” tall, white painted maple cabinets, dovetailed drawers with softouch guides and softclose doors, a ceramic tile backsplash, under-cabinet lighting and chic stainless-steel appliances.

A wood-capped half wall divides the kitchen from the sunroom, which features a cathedral ceiling, an Andersen Perma-Shield® sliding glass door and walls of windows that invite the natural light and provide panoramic views.

A cozy family room has a box ceiling enhanced by crown molding, accent lighting and a Heat n Glo® gas fireplace adorned with a ceramic tile hearth.

Additional features and amenities include a sizable mudroom with a built-in bench and coat rack complemented by an adjacent first-floor powder room conveniently located off the garage entry. A large daylight basement has 8’ ceilings.

A Craftsman-style staircase with richly stained handrails leads from the foyer to a spacious second floor overlook and four additional bedrooms. A luxurious master suite showcases a box ceiling with soft accent rope lighting and crown molding, his/her walk-in closets and an elegant, ceramic-tiled glamour bath featuring a cathedral ceiling, dual vanities with granite countertops, and elegant Kohler® accents. There is a large soaking tub complemented by a ceramic-tiled, glass-enclosed shower.
