  • 6 Things to Consider When Selecting a Floor Plan in Fieldstone

Fieldstone is one of the premier developments for new homes in Chesapeake, VA, but your decision to move into the neighborhood is just the beginning. Picking a floor plan for your home in the Fieldstone neighborhood starts by addressing the following:

1. Current Needs

How large is your family? How often do you host guests? Does your family enjoy spending time hanging out on the porch or prefer soaking up sun in a private conservatory? Consider your family’s current needs when comparing floor plans, particularly any essential needs like accessibility for a loved one with mobility issues. If you have specific needs, be sure to talk to your custom home builder and see how they can accommodate an existing floorplan for your goals.

 

2. Future Plans

Most families buying new homes in the Fieldstone communities intend to stay for quite a few years. If you’re going to invest in a new home built to your specifications, it needs to have the features to support your future plans and goals as well. Whether that involves sending the kids off to college, bringing aging parents home for care, or starting a home based business, there’s a floor plan to match from our selection of unique designs.

 

3. Master Suite Placement

Since all of the floor plans we offer in the Fieldstone development feature either 4 or 5 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, placement of the master suite is one of the biggest differences between the layouts of the various designs. Ground floor suites allow you to age in place without worrying about the stairs in your home, while second story suites offer more privacy and isolation from noisy fun in the living room. All of our master suites include the same valuable features, such as spacious private bathrooms and multiple linen and walk-in closets, so you don’t have to compromise just to get the placement you prefer.

 

4. Optional Additions

Our Fieldstone floor plans balance the efficiency of building from a standardized blueprint with plenty of customization options. Add a covered patio or conservatory for more space to relax and enjoy the beauty of your landscaping, or consider an enlarged kitchen island to increase storage for those must-have appliances. Mix and match only the custom features you want to keep the final price of the home well under your budget.

 

5. Open Spaces

Some families love open floor plans where activities flow naturally between the kitchen, dining room, and living room thanks to a lack of interior walls. Others can’t stand the style and must have the division between rooms for comfortable living. We understand both points of view, which is why you can find both layouts among our floor plans. For example, the Landmark doesn’t just separate these rooms by walls, but also by open space so that watching movies in the family room won’t bother anyone relaxing in the breakfast bay. The Meridian II is a stylish ranch with just the opposite layout, combining the kitchen, great room, and dining room into one open space for easy entertaining.

 

6. Exterior Style

Finally, don’t discount the importance of loving the look of your home when you pull into the driveway after a long day out. Exterior style details like stone columns and stone fronts, metal seam roofs, and Frieze facelines on your garage may not matter quite as much as the layout or number of bedrooms, but it’s still an important consideration when designing your new home.
