Monte Hewett Homes Homeowner Likes Convenience, Craftsmanship of West Village

Atlanta new home builder, Monte Hewett Homes, welcomes first homeowners to West Village.

[USPRwire, Tue May 29 2007] Keith Dixon and his family of four chose a Monte Hewett Homes single-family home in Smyrna’s West Village because, once they saw the quality and convenience, they didn’t want to live anywhere else.

“We had [another builder’s] home in Vinings,” said Dixon. “But once we saw the level of building quality and the features in Monte Hewett’s West Village homes, we found it difficult to live in our other home.”

In addition to the homes’ quality, Dixon and his family were drawn to West Village by the convenient location near I-285 and Atlanta Road and the traditional neighborhood development (TND) concept. Like most TND communities, West Village is a walking neighborhood with retail and restaurants integrated in the community plan.

“The presence of on-site retail and the live-work-play scenario is beneficial, especially for our children,” said Dixon. “We chose West Village because of the location and what the whole lifestyle brings, as well as the quality of Monte Hewett’s home building.”

And when his sister saw his new home her reaction, based on her long-term experience as a real estate professional in Great Britain, convinced him to also purchase a West Village townhome by Monte Hewett Homes as an investment. Her reaction confirmed Dixon’s opinion that the West Village concept will be popular and will result in quick growth.

Monte Hewett Homes’ single-family homes in West Village are priced from the $600,000s. Tucked neatly behind the restaurant and retail neighborhood center, they allow privacy alongside the convenience of a live-shop-play environment. Monte Hewett showcases the three-bedroom Howell home in a decorated model, which is open daily. Among its features are brushed granite countertops and a unique wood-topped island in a chef-friendly kitchen. The family room and spacious owner’s suite both include Monte Hewett Homes’ signature elaborate built-in shelving. The living extends outdoors to a porch overlooking a private courtyard.

Monte Hewett’s West Village townhomes, priced from the $400,000s, are surprisingly spacious. The model Piedmont home features a media room with wet bar, exposed brick walls in the foyer and an alley-entry garage in its three levels. The kitchen and adjoining family room flow into each other, and a nearby formal dining room gives plenty of space for entertaining – much more space than is usually found in a townhome. As in the single-family model, the Piedmont’s kitchen updates the look of granite with a brushed finish.

As with all homes built by Monte Hewett, those in West Village meet or exceed the high standards of EarthCraft construction, so they are more efficient and comfortable, saving home owners 30 to 45 percent on their energy bills. The environmentally friendly construction is a real bonus to the Dixon family.

“I’m most appreciative of the energy savings,” said Mr. Dixon. “With the design of the windows, there is no draft at all.”

Monte Hewett is building single-family and townhomes in West Village with 10-foot ceilings and hardwood floors on the main levels and two-piece crown molding throughout the primary living areas. Special touches in all homes include granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, coffered ceiling in the living room, and built-in shelving flanking the family room fireplace. Front porches and alley-entry garages create hometown ambience.

To reach the restaurants and retail of West Village, residents can stroll down brick paver sidewalks into a “downtown village.” When recreation or friends call, neighbors can enjoy the community pool, spacious clubhouse or relax at a restaurant in the Village. Because lawn maintenance is included with the homeowner association fees, neighbors have plenty of time to unwind and enjoy the surroundings.

West Village’s retail component will include restaurants, quaint boutiques, a coffee bar and larger shops to attract community residents and visitors alike. The community’s residential components will include the 115 townhomes and 70 single-family homes by Monte Hewett Homes as well as apartments and condos. In all, the community will boast some 1,100 residential and retail units.
