Windsong’s Somerset Sees Solid Summer Sales

Active Adult Builder continues to sell homes despite slow economy

Windsong Properties, Atlanta’s premier active adult courtyard home builder, is thriving despite a down economy. Between June 17 and July 17, the successful builder signed five contracts in its Somerset community located in Woodstock. Somerset features 59 detached ranch courtyard homes priced from $278,000.

“We offer active adults the freedom to choose the features they need in a home and we provide them with the amenities they want in a community,” said Steve Romeyn, managing partner of Windsong Communities. “For many of our residents, these options make purchasing a home worthwhile despite the economy.”

Somerset offers five ranch-style floorplans: the Hamilton, the Lexington, the Hampton, the Worthington and the Drayton. The Hamilton floorplan features three bedrooms and two and one half baths, while the Lexington is slightly larger with three bedrooms and three baths.

Additionally, this floor plan features a casita, pleasant and private accommodations for guests. The Hampton offers 3 bedrooms and two and one half baths with a study, while the newest floorplan, the Worthington includes three bedrooms, two baths and a study. The Drayton floorplan has three bedrooms, two and one half bathrooms and the option of adding a sun room or upstairs bonus room. All floorplans are expertly designed to suit the specific needs of active adults.

Windsong distinguishes themselves from other active adult builders by offering buyers the opportunity to personalize their home plans. All of the homes at Somerset offer elegant details, such as private courtyards with garden retreats; rocking chair front porches; ten foot ceilings with crown molding; and large master suites with baths that have separate vanities, garden tubs, tile showers with seats and ceramic tile floors.

Every home that Windsong Properties builds meets EasyLiving Homes© standards – no-step access, wide doorways, lever handles, and other amenities that facilitate changing life situations. All of the homes at Somerset are qualified by Southface as EarthCraft Home© and Energy Star certified. This assures that the homes have a lower cost to operate, are healthier and more comfortable and reduce the impact on the environment.

Somerset is located just two and a half miles west of I-575. Take I-75 North to I-575 North to Exit 8. Travel west on Towne Lake Parkway, staying straight on Eagle Drive. Turn left off Eagle Drive onto Putnam Ford Road. Somerset is half a mile on the left.

Locally owned, Windsong Properties was founded by Mark Carruth and Managing Partner, Steve Romeyn. The two bring more than 50 years of local building experience to Windsong Properties, “Where Life’s a Breeze.” As empty nesters themselves, Mark and Steve have first hand knowledge of the desires of active adults and are passionate about creating communities and homes for empty nesters. Every decision made at Windsong Properties, from the design of the community and its amenities to the award winning floor plans and the unique customer service approach, is targeted to the 50-plus, empty nester group.

Windsong Properties earned the highest honor from the Certified Professional Home Builders association in 2007 and 2008 when it was awarded the Customer Satisfaction Award. They were also recipients of four gold OBIE awards in 2008. The OBIE Awards are presented by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association’s Sales and Marketing Council to honor excellence in building in Greater Atlanta. It is the highest honor given in the Atlanta housing industry.
