Caring for loved ones, returning kids from college, and out-of-town guests. Homebuyers are increasingly wanting space to accommodate their friends and family in a semi-private, multi-generational space. It’s a topic that home builders are embracing, notes The Washington Post writer Michele Lerner. EYA, too, has heard from it’s homeowners and has developed “multi-generational suites” complete with living space, sleeping space, and “wet-bar” style spaces for simple beverage service.

Rethinking Outdoor Spaces at Grosvenor Heights

August 14, 2015 | by | 0 Comments

For many people, townhome living is a lock-and-go way of living with little home maintenance and even less yard maintenance. But that doesn’t mean that townhouse owners have to give up the outdoor space they love.

In fact, EYA’s Grosvenor Heights elevator townhomes are surrounded by lush green space preserves and old-growth trees. Atop the luxury home, owners will enjoy an expansive rooftop terrace unlike anything in the area. We’ve even introduced a variety of innovations designed to bring the indoors out:

  • Retractable awnings and retractable screens
  • Outdoor music and television
  • Outdoor cooking, refrigeration and dishwashers
  • Rooftop cameras and home automation to easily view activities from anywhere in the home

Every amenity you’d expect to find for an outdoor viewing party of the PGA Tour or evening cocktail hour is available on these oversized rooftop terraces.

Stop by our onsite sales center today and enjoy pre-construction pricing. Open daily 11 AM – 6 PM at Grosvenor Heights.

EYA Townhomes in Fairfax VA

What’s it really like living in an EYA home? Washington Post contributor Katharine Salant recently spent 2 days living in our Aster Model Home at Mosaic District in Fairfax, VA to get a taste.

Not too surprisingly, the loft and rooftop terrace were determined to be a huge bonus, as they are with many of our homeowners.  Salant also noted that “Nearly as compelling as the Aster itself is the urban lifestyle that is part of the Mosaic District package…” With a free Metro shuttle and dozens of new onsite retail shops and restaurants, Mosaic District has become Fairfax’s hottest new destination neighborhood. Read the full article.

Mosaic District is currently sold out, but Phase 2 townhomes are scheduled to open in September 2014. Sign up here to receive email updates and grand opening announcements.
