If ever a home welcomed you with open arms, it’s the Sienna. The efficient, open floor plan on the main level is designed with busy families in mind. The foyer leads to a generously sized great room. The foyer is flanked by a staircase with extra storage space underneath, a convenient powder room, and a mud room, which can also be accessed from the garage. The family room offers an optional fireplace and enough space to accommodate the family, plus guests. The dining area and kitchen flow right from the family room. A walk-in pantry and ample cabinetry are just some of the kitchen’s highlights. Add an optional kitchen island for extra counter space. Upstairs three oversized bedrooms and two bathrooms are a standout. The owner’s suite boasts a walk-in closet, plus its own bathroom. A laundry room is hidden away on the second floor for added convenience.

Upstairs, the Robert Frost offers plenty of options to fit your lifestyle. Choose a three bedroom plan with an enormous Owner’s Suite offering an optional tray ceiling, huge walk-in closet, and a variety of optional baths featuring a soaking tub, corner tub, separate shower – the choice is yours. Or opt for a four bedroom plan – you’ll still have plenty of storage space and a dramatic owner’s suite. Either way you’ll want to add the optional bonus room, located off the main hall or with its own private entrance, depending on which garage you’ve selected.
In many areas, the Robert Frost is available with a finished lower level that can include a home office and basement bath. All exteriors are available with a selection of brick and siding neo-traditional or cottage style elevations, many with optional covered entryways and porches.

imageThe York County Planning Commission considered this application at its September 14 meeting and conducted a public hearing at which the applicant’s representative and one citizen spoke. The citizen, an adjacent property owner who lives in York Terrace, expressed concerns about the possibility that larger homes will result in more school children and increased traffic in York Terrace. She also expressed concerns about the project in general, including traffic, drainage, and the potential impacts of the project on property values in her neighborhood.

imageThe developer’s representative  stated that in the current market, single family detached homes in the targeted price range must have at least 1,800 square feet of floor area in order to be marketable but that the proposed increase in home sizes reduces the builder’s flexibility to locate building sites, including driveways, on the lots without having to relocate already-installed water and/or sewer laterals so as to avoid the driveways. The applicant had originally requested that the minimum building separation be reduced from twenty feet (20’) to fifteen feet (15’); however, he has since determined that the lot sizes and widths are sufficient to accommodate the proposed homes with no change to the minimum building separation and has withdrawn that component of the request

imageThe current developer, American Eastern, purchased the property in 2009- 2010 and renamed the project Sunset Meadows. A final Development Plan for the project was approved by the County on September 30, 2010, and site development is underway.

The developer, who hopes to sell the lots to a nationally known homebuilder, ( Ryan Homes )   has decided to abandon the original concept of modular homes in favor of conventional site-built construction; however, the previously approved dimensional and floor area requirements will not accommodate the prospective builder’s house designs, which are larger than the modular homes that the original developer planned to build. Consequently, the developer is requesting the changes to the conditions of approval

FlorenceAdjacent homes in York Terrace have an average lot size of 0.28 acre (11,990 square feet), an average floor area of 1,060 square feet, and an average assessed value of $138,510

The County administrator’s recommendation to the Board is to  approve the following changes to the original conditions of approval:

• Increase the maximum allowable living space floor area in Sunset Meadows to 1,800 square feet for all 22 dwelling units,
• Increase the maximum ratio of living space floor area to lot area from 0.16 to 0.39,
• Reduce the minimum setback from common areas from thirty feet (30’) to twenty feet (20’),
• Reduce the minimum setback for corner lots from thirty feet (30’) to twenty feet (20’), • Reduce the minimum setback for Lots 1 and 19 from thirty feet (30’) to twenty feet (20’),
