Bridgewater’s Warson luxury Villa home at The Villas at Crimson Oaks was awarded 2016 Display Home of the Year by the Home Builders Association of St. Louis and Eastern Missouri at the Home Builders SMAC Awards held at Greenbriar Country Club on April 26, 2017. We are honored to receive this recognition.
Fourteen years ago, native St. Louisan and experienced homebuilder, Tim Miller, saw a need for a niche home market—homebuyers who wanted the privacy and spaciousness of a home without the time consuming restraints of exterior maintenance—lawncare, watering, snow removal, etc. Founding Bridgewater Communities, he designed three elegant Villa floor plans and has made it his purpose to build a quality luxury Villa home offering The Villa Lifestyle to his homebuyers! The properties Tim chooses are beautiful, in convenient locations and offer surroundings and amenities for opportunities to enjoy the Villa lifestyle.
A luxury Villa by Bridgewater offers distinct differences—differences you will notice the moment you walk in the door. Attention has purposely been paid to the width of doorways and hallways—allowing for more mobility, more room to live. Handles on doorways are lever handles for ease in opening and closing. Open concept designs offer wide open spaces and large windows for light, bright and airy interiors.
Homebuyers comment on the details of a Bridgewater Villa! Higher ceilings demand larger base and case moldings—and the use of taller doors and windows. But it doesn’t stop there. Notice the elegant foyer ceiling with ultra deep crown and a wood ceiling (right). Custom wood cased windows add to the elegant detailing.
Options in lighting are constantly assessed to provide homebuyers state of the art and cost efficient options, while keeping aesthetics in mind. New LED lighting (under cabinet lighting lower left) achieves a stunning look for a fraction of the cost of operating traditional incandescent lighting and provides effective lighting for the tasks at hand. Bridgewater includes a sampling of lighting options within their displays so homebuyers can see firsthand what the lighting would look like in their own home. All of this effort aligns with one of Tim’s goals:
Much time is given to sourcing new products and offerings in order that a Bridgewater Villa may be distinctive—a one-of-a-kind home. Rarely does Bridgewater build the same home twice. While offering three floorplans and expanded versions of two, each Villa is unique—due to another Bridgewater difference—we say “Yes!,” to changes! Our experienced Villa Experts work with each homebuyer to ensure that personal taste and lifestyle needs are incorporated during the building process. Since each Villa is unique, time is spent upfront, planning and choosing the floorplan and finishes that tailor your Villa to your particular needs. Before construction commences, a pre-construction meeting is held to confirm all aspects of the build.
Sometimes, a homebuyer may need a home in a hurry or may not want to go thru the entire construction process. Bridgewater offers Jump Start Villa homes in each community—under construction or move-in ready. Dependent on the construction stage, one may be able to make modifications or finish changes.
To make choosing finishes convenient, Bridgewater has created a new and expanded Color Room within their Sales Centers (right). We know your time is valuable and running from showroom to showroom is tiring. To make the selection process simpler we’ve brought the showrooms to you and have assembled beautiful samplings of cabinetry, flooring, hardware and much more! These spaces are bright, comfortable and organized with great materials, making choosing finishes easier and more convenient.
Adding a finished lower level to your Bridgewater Villa (main floor living space varies from 1600-1960 square feet dependent upon floorplan) increases living space by 850+ square feet. Included, is a large great room (see the light-filled great room from this winning display below right), another bedroom with a large walk-in closet, a linen closet and another full bath—all perfect for accommodating guests in elegant surroundings and offering privacy for everyone. The entry stairway to the lower level is wider for ease of use and the bottom steps finished in hardwood, flare to offer a stunning entrance to this retreat for you and your guests!
While exterior specifications of Bridgewater Villa communities are determined at community development, homebuyers still have elevation and architectural detail options when building. Our standard brick and stone front elevations combine with low maintenance exterior materials offering an elegant, upscale look. The beautiful European elevations of The Villas at Crimson Oaks (below left) fit seamlessly with the quiet, pastoral scenery of this unique community.
Since Bridgewater’s first community at Lindbergh Place in Creve Coeur, we now offer many additional communities of free standing and attached luxury Villa homes in Wentzville (The Villas at Renaissance Crossing just opened), Lake Saint Louis (The Villas at Prospect Village) and two upcoming communities in Washington—The Villas at Weber Farms and The Villas at Franklin County Country Club . Our aim is not to be the biggest builder but the best builder! For those seeking an elegant, low maintenance luxury Villa home, where quality and detail in construction and the building process are apparent, we hope you will take a look at Bridgewater. Bridgewater would love to build the next place you call home! B
Classic. Elegant. Bridgewater.
