At Bridgewater Communities, we love finding new products, creating new features and offering just the right ones to meet the needs of our villa owners. These new items are usually developed by researching the market to find products that we think our villa owners will like in their new villa. Other times, the new ideas are a direct response to one of our villa purchasers’ question or request.
At the Villas at Renaissance Crossing, our new display includes 5 new products and features that are either brand new to us or are a request from a purchaser that we liked so much we’ve added them to our offering.
1. Low-gloss satin black railings from RDI Railing are included with all decks and covered porches. Aesthetically “cleaner”, this new railing and spindle system allows for a more unobstructed view from inside the house: look through the railing rather than at the railing. Each component of the RDI railing system is fully welded before immersion in a zinc phosphate bath. They are then galvanized prior to an electrostatically applied powder coat finish which is baked for maximum durability. The low-gloss satin black finish helps hide marring, fingerprints, and dirt.
2. Per customer request, we’ve added optional VELUX® Sun Tunnel™ Skylights. This is a great way to add natural sunlight to areas like a bathroom, laundry room, or closet where you may not want a window. You may choose to add the solar night light option. The night light charges all day and provides a diffused, low-level LED light when there is no sunlight.
3. Villa owners are looking for an easy, no-stress life. This includes seeking a low-maintenance, wear resistant, hard surface flooring. Casabella® Acrylx™ Solid Surface Wide-Plank flooring gives the look and feel of a wood floor while being waterproof and more resistant to impact than wood or any other vinyl floors. They are also guaranteed against chipping or cracking. We’ve added a full range of tough and beautiful flooring alternatives to relieve the worry of scratched or damaged floors.
4. We’ve added more functional wall space with a Dining Area Sideboard Window. As our plans have evolved to create more open, inviting, and functional spaces, areas to accommodate larger wall furniture pieces have become fewer. Most villa owners don’t want to eliminate windows to allow for furniture placement. At five feet wide and three and a half feet tall, our dining area sideboard window is positioned 4 feet above the floor. This placement easily allows for a sideboard or buffet to be placed below the window while maintaining a light and airy dining space. Let us help you personalize your wall space to accommodate your furniture.
5. Many Bridgewater villa owners have right-sized from a larger home, but still want to live in comfortable and gracious spaces. This includes the need for a generously sized main floor secondary bedroom, study, or “flex” room. We’ve expanded the 2nd bedroom or study by more than 53 square feet. At 13’5” x 16’ the second bedroom/study is nearing the size of a master bedroom.
We may revisit these and other features for a more in-depth look in future posts. Until then, we hope you will stop by to see these features and tour our new display at The Villas at Renaissance Crossing in Wentzville. To visit take I-70 to north on Wentzville Parkway to west on West Pearce Blvd to the community entrance at Giotto Court. The display is located at 110 Cabot Court.
