RESTON, Va., Sept. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The opportunity to buy a newly constructed, single family home in Fairfax County is rare.  Homebuyers interested in purchasing new construction are generally forced to extend their search far west or south, as price points get prohibitively high, especially at closer in locations.  However, Stanley Martin recently opened its Summit Oaks community in southern Fairfax County and its big square footage and competitive price point are giving move-up buyers in Alexandria, Kingstowne, and Lorton a compelling alternative to resale.

With 30 total homesites, offering two of their most popular floorplans, and base pricing in the low $700s, it's no wonder that Stanley Martin sold three homes at Summit Oaks within the first 30 days of opening.  What is even more impressive is the fact that all three were sold from an off-site sales office, as the model home was not even complete.  Now that the community has "Grand Opened" from its on-site sales model, two more sales quickly followed, with total prices ranging from mid $700s – low $800s.

The Carey has a base square footage of 3,300 with four bedrooms, two and a half baths and a kitchen that makes it one of Stanley Martin's most sought-after plans.  The Carey can extend to over 6,000 square feet and offers a loft that provides an ideal space for a playroom, home office, or guest suite.  The Davidson also offers four bedrooms with two and a half baths with its standard 3,500 square foot plan and can expand close to 5,000 square feet with flexible space options such as recreation rooms, dens, and full baths in the expansive finished basement.  All homes include brick fronts with a two-car garage.

This community of homes is being added to an already existing Summit Oaks neighborhood, tucked away just off Route 1, between Old Colchester Road and Gunston Plaza.  Residents may easily take advantage of the everyday conveniences, shops, and eateries located at nearby Lorton Station and Kingstowne Center.  Additionally, the construction of Wegmans and the redevelopment of Springfield Town Center are sure to make this location even more desirable in the very near future, making now the ideal time to buy.
