New Colony Village

New Homes

September 14, 1997

A 52-acre gated community in Elkridge with a day-care center, general store, tot lots, swimming pool and a clubhouse with fitness center, locker rooms, party and meeting rooms and kitchen.

Homes at New Colony Village, however, are moderately priced, with beginning prices ranging from $109,990 to $130,990.

Developers Wayne Newsome and Mark Levy kept their homes affordable by getting Schult Homes to build HUD-code single-family manufactured houses on lots that buyers lease for 50 years instead of buying.

Lease fees, which range from $395 to $495 per month, include road maintenance, upkeep of common areas, snow removal, lawn mowing, edging and fertilizing and the use of all facilities.

Gas heat, cooking and hot water are standard. Foundations, basements and garages are built on site by Village Builders.

For $109,990, the Araby is a one-level cottage with 1,009 square feet of finished space plus a one-car garage, small front porch and an unfinished basement.

Occupying the right side of the Araby is a 13-by-19-foot living/dining room and a 14-by-10-foot U-shaped kitchen.

At the back of the left side, the master suite has an 11-by-12-foot bedroom with cathedral ceiling, dressing area with his and her closets, a vanity and entry to the full bath, which also can be reached via the hallway. There is a 10-by-10-foot second bedroom, coat closet, laundry area and exit to the garage.

Models are open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Take Interstate 95 south to Route 175 east, to Route 1 north to a left on Port Capital Drive to the models on the left.
