This will be the second home the Berkowitzes have purchased from Toll Brothers, and in addition to family, brand loyalty and public transportation, they were drawn to Ashburn.
“Lots of convenient access to shopping and dining,” Lori said. “Lower cost of living than places closer to D.C., close proximity to countryside wineries for weekend getaways and many walking trails. Essentially, many possibilities at our fingertips.”
Toll Brothers is offering a wide variety of floor plans and options at Metro Walk, beginning with four main categories of housing: 80 Lofts and 102 Flats (for a total of 182 condo units) and 122 Towns and 17 Brownstones (for 139 townhouses).
Lofts are “two-over-two” townhouse-style condos, with a stacked-pair of two-story units in each building. The units run from 1,525 to 2,456 square feet, and they come with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, including a powder room. There is also a one-car garage. Prices start at $541,995.
“Low-maintenance Lofts make life easy for busy professionals or young families,” said Whitney Gore, marketing manager at Toll Brothers. “They can get a new-construction home under $600,000.”
“Buyers are loving the urban feeling of a single-floor condo concept, it provides ample natural light on all four sides of the home,” Gore said.
Towns are four-level townhouses, ranging from 2,533 to 3,189 square feet, with three to five bedrooms and three or four bathrooms, including a powder room. They come with a two-car garage and a rooftop terrace on the loft level. Prices start at $760,995.
Gore said the units appeal to professional couples and young families. “Many move up from a condo or older townhome and want a fee-simple [full ownership] townhome versus a condominium,” she said. “The rooftop terrace and loft are a big hit for the community. They provide private indoor-outdoor luxury-living space.”
Brownstones are larger four-level townhouses, with 3,298 to 3,477 square feet, three or four bedrooms, and three or four bathrooms, including a powder room. They, too, come with a private rooftop terrace on the loft level and a two-car garage. A private elevator is an option. Prices start at $929,995.
“Many of the people who purchase . . . the Brownstones are professional couples and the newly retired who want to have a lower-maintenance lifestyle,” Gore said. “And the Brownstones offer a usable backyard space.”
“The moment Metro Walk was available, my husband and I ran to give them a deposit,” Lori said. “We did not look back. At the time of signing our contract, our lot literally was a pile of dirt. Not once, did we ever question the end result. Not one time.”
