September Move-In Home Available in the Legacy Collection

4 Gaucho Road, one of Warmington’s Legacy Collection homes in Covenant Hills, has been listed on the local MLS.  With the Legacy Collection selling swiftly and the recently announced purchase by Warmington of twenty additional lots, it is unclear why one of these homes would be listed like this.  Typically, builders will refrain from listing their homes on the MLS because it is unnecessary during a seller’s market and doing so exposes the builder to realtor commissions.  In this case, perhaps the home fell out of contract or is just proving a difficult location to sell.  Whatever the reason, this home offers a buyer who has been perhaps frustrated in previous attempts to purchase one the opportunity to move-in in September.  The home is listed as 4 bedroom, 4.25 bath at 4116 square feet on a more than quarter acre lot.  From the elevation, the home appears to be Residence One.  From the MLS listing:

The Legacy Collection at Covenant Hills! Beautiful new home, under construction, featuring open, spacious rooms, indoor-outdoor living with large side courtyard, huge bonus room upstairs, master bedroom downstairs with large walk-in closet. Many upgrades are included: stainless steel Thermador appliance package (including 60″ refrigerator!); stainless steel “Farmer’s” sink; large kitchen island with butcher block; walk-in pantry; cabinet upgrades; speaker systems & security systems installed; paneled “pocket” door in living room. Buyers may still select flooring. Earliest move-in available at the desirable Legacy Collection neighborhood by Warmington Residential. Completion will be in September!
