Preakness Homes has opened a second section at Oakdale in Perry Hall, where the company is building 30 single-family homes with gas cooking, heat and hot water.
The homes in the Baltimore County community are being built under the BGE EnergyWi$e program, which seeks to lower energy costs by using high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment as well as better insulation and windows.
The St. Michaels, a 2,000-square-foot Colonial with a base price of $194,990, is the model at Oakdale.
A two-story foyer, guest closet, 13-by-10-foot living room, 13-by-10-foot dining room, 16-by-13-foot family room, 20-by-12-foot country kitchen with pantry and work island, and powder and laundry rooms occupy the first floor.
On the second floor, the master suite has a full bath with double vanities, walk-in closet and 18-by-14-foot bedroom. There are three additional bedrooms, a full hall bath and a linen closet.
The home also has a double garage and an unfinished basement.
The smallest and least expensive home Preakness builds at Oakdale is the Nanticoke, a split-level that starts at $169,990 for 1,550 square feet.
On the entry level there is a foyer, coat closet, 9-by-14-foot living room, 14-by-9-foot dining room and 14-by-10-foot kitchen with pantry.
Upstairs is the owner's quarters with a 16-by-13-foot bedroom, walk-in closet and full bath. Two other bedrooms, a linen closet and a full hall bath complete the sleeping level. A laundry room is in the unfinished basement.
The model is open from noon to 6 p.m. weekdays and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Take Interstate 695 to Belair Road north, go right on Joppa Road, right on King George Court and follow signs to model on the right.
