“We wanted a big living area, space for my office, a minimum of three bedrooms and a big backyard,” Ken explained. “Castlerock had all of that and more.”
Ken and Tami also appreciated the fact that Castlerock offered them choices. “We could pick the options and upgrades the let us design the house to fit us perfectly,” Ken said. “For example, we selected wood laminate flooring that’s ideal for the kids and our new dog, and in the kitchen we upgraded to stainless steel appliances, sandstone wood cabinetry and granite countertops – something else that we really wanted.”
The couple also applauds the convenience of the kitchen’s location. “We can unload groceries directly from the garage into the kitchen,” Ken explained. “Plus our second refrigerator in the garage is just steps away when we need it.”
Ken and Tami have big plans for their huge backyard. “It’s so much bigger than anything else we saw on the market,” Ken said. “We are going to add a pool, firepit and patio area, and there will still be room for our daughter to play volleyball.”
“We searched long and hard for this house,” Ken added, “and it was well worth the effort. After seeing scores of short sales that needed a lot of extra work, Castlerock was a refreshing discovery.”
Castlerock is a limited edition of only 27 homes set amid rolling hills and natural rock outcroppings in an exceptionally desirable location. Two innovative two-story floor plans ranging from approximately 2,336 to 2,661 square feet are distinguished by expansive great rooms for family gatherings and fun-filled entertaining, gourmet island kitchens that make it easy to prepare everything from a snack to a feast, and lofty ceilings that enhance the feeling of spaciousness.
Castlerock’s expansive homesites, which average 14,000 square feet, allow plenty of room for fun-filled backyards like the one Ken and Tami envision. Pools, patios and play areas are all possibilities, along with vegetable and flower gardens, and even storing big-kids’ toys is no problem.
Castlerock’s flexible room options make the homes adaptable to a wide range of lifestyles. Residence 1 features the choice of a den that may also be selected as a formal dining room or an optional downstairs bedroom as well as the option of an upstairs loft. Residence 2, which includes a convenient downstairs bedroom that’s perfect for overnight guests, may be expanded with the addition of an optional upstairs bonus room.
Castlerock’s gourmet kitchens put style and convenience on every menu with white Thermofoil cabinets for abundant storage, ceramic-tile countertops that always sparkle and a full complement of Whirlpool® appliances, including a gas range with oven, microwave oven/vent hood combination and multi-cycle Energy Star® dishwasher.

The homes make a dramatic first impression with richly detailed Spanish or Cottage-style architecture, and the drama continues with designer-selected exterior colors that lend a custom-like appearance to the neighborhood. On select plans, inviting front porches set the scene for impromptu visits with neighbors. Sectional steel roll-up garage doors complement the architecture and provide convenience as well. Concrete tile roofs provide long-lasting protection from the elements as well as resistance to fire, and rain gutters prevent runoff into yards and planter areas. In addition, illuminated address numbers assist after-dark guests.
To accommodate today’s technology, the homes include structured wiring with RG6 and CAT5e cables to facilitate high-speed computer connections as well as cable TV and telephone.
