South River Colony
"If you can dream it, we can build it," said Rachele Dannenberg, sales manager at South River Colony in Edgewater where Regency Homes has opened a model of the Augusta, one of five houses named after famous golf courses in Georgia.
The Doral, Muirfield, Oakmont and Riviera are the other homes offered in the Anne Arundel County community that includes South River Golf Links, an 18-hole public golf course.
All Regency homes at South River Colony will include full unfinished basement, insulated front door with brass kick plate, hardwood floor in foyer, six-panel Colonial doors, 9-foot ceilings on the first floor and two-zone gas heat.
While the Augusta starts at $438,990 for a 4,200-square-foot home, the model has enough extras to send the price up to $750,000. These include a $20,000 sun room with its own zoned heating and air conditioning, a morning room off the kitchen, a 4-foot family room extension, cherry kitchen cabinets and handmade library paneling and shelving.
The first floor of the Augusta features a two-story foyer flanked by a 15-by-14-foot living room and a 17-by-13-foot dining room. Across the rear are a 16-by-12-foot library, 22-by-16-foot family room, 15-by-9-foot breakfast area and 17-by-11-foot kitchen.
Upstairs, the master suite has a 20-by-19-foot bedroom, room-size walk-in closet, 15-by-11-foot sitting room and bath with a linen closet, separate shower, his-and-her vanities, soaking tub and privacy toilet.
Buyers seeking one-level living may be drawn to the Oakmont, a 3,600-square-foot, two-story home with a first-floor master suite and a starting price of $396,900.
Housed in the right wing of the house, the master suite has a 27-by-17-foot bedroom with sitting area, his-and-her walk-in closets and a bath.
A 16-by-13-foot living room, 16-by-13-foot dining room, 11-by-10-foot library, kitchen with pantry, breakfast area, powder and laundry rooms, two coat closets and a two-car garage with a large storage area complete the first floor.
Two of the upstairs bedrooms share a full bath. The third bedroom is across from the hall bath.
