NORTH STAFFORD, Va., Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Embrey Mill, an 831-acre master-planned community in North Stafford, Virginia, will open the doors of Embrey House, its highly anticipated community hub, on February 7th. In addition to an immersive information center, Embrey House will provide an on-site retail element most communities lack, including a full-service cafe and a planned concierge program.
An exclusive partnership with local favorite Before 'n' After Cafe provides an easy dining option on-site, as well as call-ahead service for quick pick-up by busy commuters. The Before 'n' After Cafe menu expands upon the offerings of its sister location in Stafford, boasts an outdoor summer kitchen and patio, and offers poolside food service, distinguishing it far beyond anything else nearby. Winter hours will be 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. M – F, with expanded hours on weekends and during the summer (exact schedule TBD).
Alongside these services, Embrey House will be the main source of information about the community and its homes, offering experiential technology and trained staff to help prospective buyers learn about Embrey Mill. The all-encompassing amenity complex also features a fitness center overlooking an Olympic beach entry swimming pool and adjoining children's pool. Kids have plenty of play options like a junior-sized basketball hoop, four square and hopscotch, as well as two experiential play installations.
The strong stone facade of Embrey House draws inspiration from the region's role in national history. Its design references the nearby Towson House, an historic home adjacent to the quarries that supplied the sandstone used to build the U.S. Capitol. The Towson House was later owned by the Embrey family.
After listening to the market, Embrey Mill plans to integrate on-site lifestyle services that maximize residents' time at home, including a concierge program. "Our consumer research revealed the huge time challenges people living and working on the I-95 corridor face," said Tracy Graves, Vice President of Operations for Embrey Mill. "We have envisioned and are finalizing plans for a unique concierge service for our residents and will have more information to share as our community continues to grow."
Embrey Mill is owned in a joint venture between NORTH AMERICA SEKISUI HOUSE, LLC (NASH), the US business unit and full subsidiary of SEKISUI HOUSE, LTD., Japan's largest homebuilder and leading diversified developer, and AMERICAN NEWLAND COMMUNITIES, LLC, whose development business, Newland Communities, is the master developer of the community. It is one of more than 30 assets the NASH-Newland partnership manages together in 11 states across the US.
