The two-level Marymount is entered from the one-car garage or the front porch, at opposite ends of the space containing the open-plan kitchen, dining area and great room. The second floor has the owner’s bedroom suite and two additional bedrooms.
Entry to the Brandeis is also from the unit’s one-car garage or the porch. Stairs lead from the first floor past the second to the residence on the third and fourth floors. The open-plan kitchen, dining area and great room are on the third floor; the owner’s suite and two more bedrooms are on the fourth.
Both floor plans have large windows and nine-foot ceilings that add to the feeling of spaciousness on the open-concept main level, which provides ample and flexible space for work, school or entertainment. The Brandeis model, for example, has 1,300 square feet on the main level — with a great room that’s about 21 by 23 feet; a kitchen about 15 by 16 feet; and a dining area about 12 by 16 feet.
“Natural light is a key component of our designs, promoting bright and airy environments that are welcoming and comfortable,” said Mary Batkin, vice president of sales for K. Hovnanian’s Mid-Atlantic division.
“Oversized kitchen islands encourage at-home meal preparation for family dinners,” Batkin said. “Generous owner’s suites and modern luxury baths provide a place of respite after a busy, stressful day. These areas of the home matter more today than in times past, and our goal is to meet the demands of the ever-changing marketplace.”
