WOODBRIDGE, Va., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- With a giant red ribbon wrapped around their front door, a basket overflowing with congratulatory goodies, and a "Welcome Home" sign adorned on their front porch, the first residents of Hope Hill Crossing -- the Karras family -- pulled into their new driveway and were welcomed home, for the very first time, by Stanley Martin staff.

"We had been waiting for Hope Hill to open since we saw the ground breaking last year," said the homeowners who, prior to buying at Hope Hill Crossing, lived just around the corner from the community.  The Karras family, like many families in the surrounding area watched the land development with anticipation and waited eagerly for the community to finally open for sale.  Their wait was over and their dream home was just as they had hoped.  

After an emotional ribbon cutting ceremony, the Karras' posed for a few snapshots in front of their new home, Stanley Martin's Sycamore model, built just like one of the four fully decorated sales models on site at Hope Hill Crossing.  When interviewed by Stanley Martin staff, Mr. Karras indicated that they chose The Sycamore due to its size (3216-5807 sq.ft.), as it best fit their lifestyle, and concluded that, "it's just a great house."  Mr. Karras complimented Stanley Martin Homes and expressed that the entire home buying process had just been "awesome" for him and his family.

And many more homeowners will soon follow in the Karras family footsteps, as sales at Hope Hill Crossing have been booming since its grand opening.  Slated as a community of 311 single family homes, Hope Hill Crossing offers homebuyers twelve different house types from which to choose, with a vast selection of interior and exterior options to customize their homes as they see fit.  Additionally, with over 45% of the land dedicated to community spaces and parkland, Hope Hill Crossing residents will enjoy community amenities not easily found in the DC Metro Area -- a network of walking, hiking, and biking trails, tot lot, athletic courts, and an observation deck overlooking the community's wetland area.

Stanley Martin's Director of Marketing, Fiona Hughes, accurately summed up the emotion of the day in stating, "Hope Hill Crossing is a special community for Stanley Martin Homes -- one of the largest we have built in recent history -- and we're so very proud of the end result.  Therefore, we wanted to recognize our first homeowners in this special way.  We know that when it comes to buying a home, buyers have choices, and we're so very honored and pleased that the Karras family chose to partner with us."
