Many people are interested in purchasing a newly built home, but also don’t want to leave the safety of their own residence to walk through a variety of models. Therefore, the perfect way to take a “live tour” is by visiting the Builders Showcase Virtual Tour of Homes.
Take a tour of new construction homes for sale by viewing videos, 3 D Tours, looking at floor plans and photos, and then making an appointment to speak to the builder. This way, you can minimize the risk of getting COVID-19 by not interacting with too many people.
However, if you’re searching for new construction homes for sale that offer energy-efficient, comfortable, and convenient floor plans, look no further! The Freedom III model home, built by Cobblestone Builders, is the only one you need to see. Get ready to fall in love.
The Freedom III is a three-bedroom, two-bath ranch with a split floorplan. This 1,751 square foot home is available for sale at $449,800. The price includes the driveway, sidewalk, landscaping, front patio, and an appliance allowance of $2,000. A dishwasher and microwave are already installed, so you just need to choose a refrigerator and your stove. Best of all, this model is also available for immediate occupancy. You and your family can move in before the holidays!
The Brand New Freedom III’s Exterior
As you scan the exterior of this exceptional ranch style home, you’ll also notice the touches of Craftsman architecture. There are corbels at the roofline peaks, impressive stonework on the double columns, and mullions on all the windows. These architectural additions can also be described as Arts & Crafts, Shaker, and Mission style.
Approaching the entrance, you’re welcomed by a lovely front porch. It’s the perfect size for a couple to relax on comfy chairs, have a glass of wine, and enjoy the cool evening breeze. You’ll also see the beautiful leaded glass window in the dark wood front door. Before you even enter the house, you’ll quickly realize that the hunt for new construction homes for sale is over!
The latest in energy-efficient products will be found throughout the Freedom III, as in all other Cobblestone homes. Using high-quality, energy-saving products, from the foundation to the roof, guarantees lower utility costs. Even better, the Freedom III is certified Energy Efficient by a Focus on Energy (FoE) consultant. This process ensures the home is rated on a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) scale and built to a higher standard of energy efficiency.
The New Model Home, Freedom III‘s Interior
As you step through the front door, your eye is drawn to the expanse of windows and sliding doors across the back of the house overlooking the yard. Then, you’ll look up to see the tray ceiling in the front room, highlighting the gracious, yet comfortable, living area. This open floor plan pulls you in and the ceiling height makes the area feel expansive.
Walking past the living room toward the kitchen, you’ll notice a unique three-sided stone fireplace to your right, offering a glow and warmth to the entire space. A large eating area is steps away from the kitchen to the left, which also hosts a sizeable island with quartz countertops. The front of the island matches the stone around the fireplace and the chairs surrounding the island are perfect for eating quick breakfasts and after-school snacks.
The ample number of Shaker-style kitchen cabinets breaks away from the “all-white trend” to offer a rich, sable-colored finish. However, because of the many windows and natural light filling the open floor plan, it never feels dark.
There are wood floors throughout the great room and ceramic tile in the bathrooms and laundry room. Wall to wall carpeting covers the floors in all three bedrooms for warm toes on cold winter mornings.
Tour the Freedom III Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Although Cobblestone Builders offers a variety of outstanding new construction homes for sale, this three-bedroom, two-bath, split ranch is ideal for growing families as well as for couples looking to downsize. At just 1,751 square feet, the comfortable size makes it easy to maintain. Yet, the floor plan is generous enough for entertaining family and friends and for giving everyone who resides here some personal space.
Two nicely sized bedrooms and a full bath are located to the far right of the entrance. This area offers lots of privacy as well as flexibility. You can use both rooms as your children’s bedrooms, or as an office, a guest bedroom, den, or craft room. The choice is yours!
All of the bedrooms have windows on two walls for cross ventilation and plenty of sunlight.
To the left of the front entrance is the sizeable master bedroom suite. However, first – just past the stairs to the lower level – are a convenient laundry room with lots of storage and a nook with a built-in desk. This office space is ideal for paying bills, writing letters, and working on your laptop. It also keeps your private paperwork away from nosy neighbors!
Walking into the master suite, you’ll enjoy enough space for a king-size bed. There are also two generous sized closets, one for each of you. The luxurious master bath hosts a vanity with two sinks and a substantially sized shower with a level access floor. You’ll never again have to worry about tripping over the lip of the shower as you walk into it.
The two-car garage is large enough for your vehicles, plus your snowblower, lawnmower, and other gardening essentials. And with a nod to the future, Cobblestone Builders has added a charger for electric cars. How many new construction homes for sale offer that?
The garage entrance into the house brings you through the laundry room and a just few feet from the kitchen to easily drop off your bags of groceries.
For those not familiar with Craftsman architecture, this style of home was a revolution in American design. These homes were built all over the US in the early 1900s until the 1930s. However, almost 100 years later, the style has suddenly become popular again. People began to restore older models and contractors are building new, more modern replicas.
The roots of American Craftsman architecture was based on a revolt against the devaluation of workers and the dignity of human labor during the time of the Industrial Revolution. So, homes were designed and built by hand – showcasing the high-quality handiwork of the craftsmen who created them.
Craftsman style homes always use natural materials, such as stone, wood, etc., and have a great aesthetic without needing the decorative excesses of Victorian homes which came before. A Craftsman-style home is warm, welcoming, and peaceful, and uses soft muted colors with a relaxed, comfortable style of décor.
The Look of a Craftsman Home
You can usually identify a Craftsman-style house the minute you drive up to it. The most common characteristics include:
- Deep, overhanging roof eaves
- Exposed rafter tails (or corbels), seen under the eaves
- A covered front porch
- Partially glass-paned doors, typically the upper third
- Tapered columns that support the roof and are sturdier at the bottom (many times surrounded with stone) and smaller at the top.
- Single dormers, centered and very large, often with multiple windows
- Multi-pane windows, cased in wide trim and mullions on the glass
- Muted, earth tone colors tending toward grey, brown, tan, and green
How to Locate the Freedom III
Just thirty minutes north of Milwaukee, the Freedom III will offer its occupants the convenience, without the chaos, of the big city. Live in a quiet, peaceful community and still be close enough to Milwaukee to easily drive to work or enjoy going to the zoo, a baseball game, or the ballet.
If you’re traveling from the greater Milwaukee area, head out of town by taking Hwy 41/45 North to Hwy 45 North.
Exit on Hwy 60, and then head east. In just ½ mile, you’ll turn south (right) onto Glen Brook Drive. Continue south for ¾ of a mile until you see the entrance to Cobblestone Meadows. It will be on your left.
The Cobblestone Meadows Subdivision
Right in the heart of Washington County, there is a brand new subdivision developed by Cobblestone Builders. It’s called Cobblestone Meadows. This community offers a variety of home and lot packages throughout the 22-site development. You don’t want to miss this amazing opportunity!
Cobblestone Meadows is all-inclusive, unlike most builder subdivisions. That means Cobblestone Builders gladly welcomes any home builder of your choosing. But you need to act fast – because there are only 18 lots left out of the original 22 parcels. Each lot is sized between 1/3 and 1/2 acres. The rolling grounds allow basement walk-out exposure for at least eight lots. The entire subdivision is surrounded by large trees, too. All lots include municipal sewer and water and are priced from $92,500 – $104,500.
More about the Village of Jackson, WI
Located in southeastern Wisconsin, the village of Jackson offers families all of the conveniences of big-city living with a small-town feel. Nestled between Milwaukee and West Bend, it’s the ideal place to live and work. Because of its proximity to the intersection of US Hwy 45 and State Hwy 60, it only takes 30 to 40 minutes to get to Milwaukee. Perfect for those who work downtown.
With a population of just over 7,100, this quaint area exudes community pride and family values. But that’s not all – the entirety of Washington County provides an abundance of family-friendly attractions. You and your whole family can enjoy everything from spacious parks and world-class golf courses to award-winning restaurants and great shopping.
Named after President Andrew Jackson, the village of Jackson was incorporated in 1912. Prior to that, the village was known as Riceville. It was one of three unincorporated settlements that now make up the Towns of Polk and Jackson.
Franz Reis, a German immigrant, acquired the 400-acre hamlet in 1872. It eventually became the site for a train depot, linking the railroad between Milwaukee and Fond du Lac. This train depot led to the development of Jackson and brought in more residents and businesses.
By 1920, the population grew to 230 people and Jackson had two creameries, a dance hall, a hotel, a doctor, and a cheese factory. Unfortunately, the village reported little growth over the next 50 years and continued to be a sleepy dot on the map of Wisconsin.
However, in 1970, two new subdivisions were built to keep up with the expansion of businesses nearby. Construction continued at a steady pace until the completion of Highway 45 in the 1990s created a housing boom. This highway now allowed for a faster and more convenient means to travel into Milwaukee and other areas. Now, one of the fastest-growing areas in Washington County remains the Village of Jackson.
Cobblestone Builders chose to develop the Cobblestone Meadows subdivision in Jackson because they want to encourage additional growth there. They envision a bustling, thriving community that still retains its roots of home and family.
