CENTREVILLE, Md., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sky basements, multi-purpose areas above garages, are a popular option for new home buyers at Symphony Village, the active adult community in Centreville, according to Jeff Caruso, president of Caruso Homes, Croft, MD.

Available as an option with each of the nine Symphony Village model homes, the sky basement is accessed from a fixed walkup staircase in the garage. It is ideal for storing off season and occasional use items such as lawn furniture, luggage and sports equipment.

However, many residents have elected to have their sky basements insulated, painted, a separate HVAC system installed as well as finished with wood or tile flooring. "A finished sky basement is perfect for use as a hobby or craft room, exercise area, music or artist studio," Caruso said.  "Many residents are selecting a sky basement over a larger, traditional sub basement," he added.

Symphony Village offers active adults ages 55-plus the opportunity to enjoy a lifestyle unlike any other with the Symphony Club, a nearly 14,000-square-foot facility, taking center stage. The Symphony Club offers a large, well-equipped fitness center, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a billiards room, business center, card room, yoga studio, and an arts and crafts room. Also available are tennis courts, a community garden and walking trails.
