The Cove at Bennett’s Creek Square

Categories: New Homes Suffolk VA | Posted: August 24, 2016

The Cove at Bennett’s Creek Square is on FIRE! Napolitano Homes’ Grand Opening for the model was just 1 month ago in mid July, and there are already 15 new homes being built in the neighborhood for excited buyers ranging from first time homeowners to empty nesters looking to downsize with a first floor Master Suite. It’s easy to see why The Cove is such a hit: prices in the LOW $300s, a relaxed North Suffolk location that is also close to shopping and entertainment in Harbour View and has easy access to I-664 for travel throughout Hampton Roads, abundant amenities including multiple parks and walking paths, and most importantly, five incredible brand new homes designs that are unique to The Cove which feature flexible and modern floorplans that are perfect for today’s buyer.

The Byron and The Byron 2

The Byron is the most efficiently sized new home in The Cove, starting at 1,970 square feet. Still, not a single inch is wasted in this design and its open first floor concept gives the feeling of a much larger single family home. The Foyer, Dining, Family Room, and Kitchen blend together smoothy yet are defined by interesting ceiling architectural elements and an enormous island overlooking the Family Room.

The enormous Master Suite (which seems to take up at least half of the upstairs) and 2 secondary bedrooms are on the second floor. The Bryon 2 has the exact same first floor as its little sibling, with the exception of a larger front porch, and it adds a fourth bedroom to the second floor.

The Monterey

You will not find a more dramatic floorplan in the same price range as The Monterey. Spectacular soaring ceilings fly to the second level of the home, while tall windows in the Family Room allow abundant natural light to flow into the home. A huge kitchen with abundant cabinets and counter space overlooks the Family Room, and a private Study can also be converted into an optional first floor bedroom with full bath.

The second floor has the luxurious Master Suite, 2 secondary Bedrooms, a secondary bath, and the laundry room.

The Spinnaker

The Spinnaker is The Cove’s only Master Down option, thus it is a perfect selection for those looking for first floor living or separation between the Master Suite and secondary bedrooms. It is an open concept that has a Dining Room, Family Room, and Kitchen that flow together, and 2 story sloped ceilings that reach the second floor. This plan is all about flexibility, as the formal Dining Room can be optioned to a private first floor Study. Upstairs allows even more flex space, as the unfinished Storage room can be converted into an optional 4th Bedroom or open loft that overlooks the Family Room!

The Wilroy

Finally, The Wilroy is not only the beautifully furnished model at The Cove, but it also is the most the most spacious. Up to 2,654 square feet, it offers a Dining Room and Study (with option to enclose with French doors) and an enormous Family Room on the first floor. Picture entertaining dozens of friends and family members in the open Family Room and Kitchen and still having plenty of room to spare!

The second level has the Master Suite and 3 secondary bedrooms. Since we’re so keen on offering flex space in our floorplans, Bedroom 2 can also be an open loft that is perfect as a TV Room or Play Room.

Viridian Reserve at Hickory is SOLD OUT

Categories: Announcements, New Homes Chesapeake | Posted: June 22, 2016

It has been an amazing run in Viridian Reserve at Hickory, but we are now SOLD OUT! In just under a year and a half, Napolitano Homes went from opening the Riley as its decorated model to putting sold signs in its windows after selling every single other new homesite in the neighborhood. This community simply boomed from start to finish! We are so happy to have provided dream homes for everyone in this wonderful place in Hickory, Chesapeake.

Each new home we built here had amazing curb appeal that was made possible by the beautiful James Hardie siding on three different elevation choices: Traditional, Craftsman, and Transitional. Homeowners selected incredible color combinations, and customized their homes with unique stone accents, brick, board and batten, and more to create a very diverse neighborhood of stately yet “fun” homes. Here are a few of our favorite exterior images from Viridian Reserve:

Belmont1 Exterior1 Exterior2 Exterior1 exterior2 Exterior Front Exterior3 Exterior2

Well-designed exteriors make for a lovely neighborhood streetscape and and exciting first impressions, but it’s the inside’s layout and design that truly makes a house a home. We take special care to design floorplans with modern families in mind, and we introduced several new models to the neighborhood including the Capri and the Sorrento. New homeowners in Viridian Reserve at Hickory took our floorplans and made them their own by making some spectacular choices in flooring, cabinets, ceramics, two-side fireplaces, and more. Some of our favorite interiors include:

Even though Viridian Reserve at Hickory is now complete, Napolitano Homes continues its tradition of building fine new homes in Chesapeake with Hanbury Manor which is just around the corner in Great Bridge, and Western Branch Reserve on Bruce Road in north Chesapeake. We are also breaking ground for Fieldstone in Chesapeake this summer. We are adding 2 new floorplans to all 3 of these neighborhoods, one of which is a Master Down layout and the other has a FULL multigenerational suite option. We look forward to announcing these floorplans soon!

Linus Loves Quality Construction

Categories: Articles, New Homes Chesapeake, New Homes Suffolk VA, New Homes Virginia Beach | Posted: June 7, 2016

quality construction

Linus (our spokesdog) is a stickler for attention to detail, which is yet another reason he loves our new homes so much. Most know that Napolitano Homes is well known for its soaring elevations, rich architectural details, flowing and intuitive floorplans, and modern appointments and technology. But what about the less noticeable details, such as what’s hiding behind the walls, or quality control systems we have in place between breaking ground and a new home’s finishing touches? While these details in the building process are seldom seen, Linus knows that Napolitano Homes takes extraordinary care in these early stages. In doing so, we ensure that each home we build is not only visually pleasing in its final form, but also is structurally sound, long lasting, and a solid investment for you and your family.

Here are a few examples of what’s hidden behind the walls, as well as systems Napolitano Homes has in place that differentiates itself from other builders in the area:

Hurricane Straps

hurrican strapsLiving close to the water means an almost unlimited number of recreational and natural activities, but with these benefits of the coastal life comes the inherent risk of possible high winds from hurricanes, tropical storms, and nor’easters that make their way up the east coast. A home is only as strong as its weakest link, therefore our structural engineer-approved floorplans utilize several wind resistant methods of securing the home in place in the event one of these storms moves through the Hampton Roads area. First, the roof is anchored securely to the walls by installing hurricane clips at every rafter-to-wall connection. In addition to the roof, all connections between floors are secured to make one continuous load path. Finally, the first floor is secured to the foundation with hurricane straps. These straps are long plates that extend several feet up and below the foundation, as seen in the photo to the right.

stable wallsStructural Integrity

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, all Napolitano Homes floorplans are structural engineer certified. So not only do we take great care in designing floorplans that are modern, open, and beautiful, but we also ensure that each design is accompanied by structurally sound (and engineer approved) blueprints. In other words, we do NOT buy our floorplans out of a book and each home plan we offer has been heavily scrutinized by designers, builders, engineers, and more. As a result, our homes have many interesting features within their walls to allow for open spaces, soaring ceilings, and features that are so popular these days. One example is structurally engineered interior walls. With open and airy being the current trend, gone are the days of excessive columns and walls between rooms. Instead, we have reinforced beams and interior bracing on main walls that reduce sway and sheer in high winds.

Checks, Inspections, and more Checks

markupsWe have systems in place where each of our community builders inspect and re-inspect during the building process in order to make sure everything is built correctly. Markups, spray paint, and more are used to signal all of our trades that something needs to be addressed, well before any city inspector makes their way through to evaluate our homes. By staying ahead of the game and on top of the various trades, we ensure a solidly built home and a smooth transition between stages. Furthermore, we have several meetings with our new homeowners in order to keep them informed, including the Pre-Construction Meeting as well as the Framing Conference. We also have “Customer Wants to Know” forms that our buyers can fill out at any point of construction where their questions will be answered in a timely fashion. Good communication and thorough education makes for very happy buyers!

Pest Control

bora care2Unfortunately, Hampton Roads climate is perfectly suited for termites, which can wreak havoc on and severely weaken a home’s structure. Therefore, we take many steps to prevent such infestation in the homes we build. Rather than pumping hundreds of gallons of pesticides into the soil around the house, and poisoning the surrounding land and waterways due to runoff, we instead apply Bora-Care directly to the wood, concrete and foundation penetrations. Termites can’t consume the wood and they can’t tube over it. We also recommend that our homeowners enroll in a yearly termite prevention contract with a reputable pest control company, protecting their investment for years to come.

Innovative Standard Features

Napolitano Homes is leading the way in new homes building by being one of the first builders in the area to offer tankless water heaters as STANDARD in two of its communities: Viridian Reserve at Hickory and The Townes on the Square. Tankless, or “on demand,” water heaters save energy (and thus money) by eliminating the cost of keeping 40 to 50 gallons of water hot in a storage tank. These water heaters are just one of many features in our EnergySense Homes that are energy efficient and pocketbook friendly. For the technology fans out there, Napolitano Homes offers smart home capabilities as standard, where homeowners can control the HVAC, alarm, and more from the convenience of their smartphone screen.

New Home Buyer Seminar

Those who attend our New Home Buyer Seminars are some of the most educated home buyers in all of Suffolk, Chesapeake, and Virginia Beach. Held roughly once a month, Napolitano Homes invites all current buyers under contract to attend, along with anyone else who is interested in our buying, building, and warranty processes. John Napolitano, company vice president, hosts each hour long event, and he covers almost everything involved in purchasing a Napolitano Home including company history, contracts, pre construction meetings, framing conferences, final walkthroughs, closing, 12 week and 11 month reviews, the warranty program, and much more! It is a great forum for homeowners and prospects alike to get to know and ask questions of their builder.
