Rekindle the Romance: Fall in Love with a New Home

Remember when you first moved into your home? Everything seemed new and clean—fresh paint, shining floors, and sparkling windows. You hurried home every day just to revel in the joy of being there. Over the years though, that passion faded. The rooms, the color, the furnishings—they all became tired and mundane. Love is in the air in February, so why not rekindle the romance. Fall in love with a new home. Beacon Homes has some new construction homes that offer lasting relationship potential.

Edmond, OK, is the kind of city where you can find true love in a living situation. This Oklahoma City suburb was ranked #1 on the list of “10 Perfect Suburbs” in the entire country by CNBC and #36 on “Best Places to Live” in America by Money magazine. This vibrant city is also consistently rated one of the best places to live in Oklahoma.

What’s so appealing about Edmond? 

Edmond is just 14 miles from Oklahoma City, a metro that offers an outstanding array of things to do. But with 100,000 people living in Edmond, it’s also a city with a lot to offer on its own. You’ll never be bored with Edmond, as there’s great energy here. The residents have the best of urban activities easily within reach, but just as close is Arcadia Lake, a 1,820 manmade lake that gives you the fresh air experience.

Do you want world-class shopping or culinary choices that satisfy your appetite for different moods? You won’t need to stray from your home in Edmond.

The schools are top-notch, too. Santa Fe High School, Edmond North High School, and Memorial High School—all in Edmond—earned recognition as one of the 10 best in Oklahoma (according to U.S. News & World Report). CollegeSimply placed North High School, Deer Creek High School, Santa Fe High School, and Memorial High School as #2, #3, #4, and #7, respectively, on its own list of Oklahoma’s best high schools.

Forget what people tell you. You CAN have it all. You just have to go get it! Here are some homes that are ready and waiting to meet you in The Grove, one of our premiere Edmond communities of single-family homes.

“I need my space.”

18109 Autumn Grove offers you the comfort of 2,221 square feet with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and an open floor plan that’s finished with wood-look tile and a brick-surround fireplace. We’ve dressed up the kitchen with a custom tile backsplash that sports a herringbone pattern in a soft green that nicely complements the white cabinetry.

Beacon Homes designed this single-family home to create harmony in a busy household. We all need our privacy from time to time, right? The master suite features a huge closet to store a large wardrobe, and more. From the closet, step into the big laundry room and separate mud room (for a quick escape to the garage).

The Stamford floor plan respects your personal space. The two secondary bedrooms are linked with an awesome jack-and-jill bath, so each person feels like they have their own bathroom.

And while looks aren’t everything, there’s no denying that 18109 Autumn Grove is a real beauty, inside and out. At first sight, you’ll appreciate the unique lines and the welcoming approach of the front porch and entry.

“Let’s get cozy.”

Is your current living situation just feeling a bit cramped? Do you need more space? Well, maybe it’s not just the room around you, but the design. The Amelia floor plan at 18601 Melogold Drive uses 1,769 square feet of indoor living space so smartly that you’ll be living large. You can have all the features of a larger home—the island kitchen, family room with a fireplace, soaking tub and separate shower in the master bath, and storage.

We’ve proven that the layout of a home is more important than the measurement. With creativity and a strong understanding of home design, we’ve provided the perfect place for people who are looking to “right-size” their life. Choosing less footage doesn’t mean you should compromise.

You’ll also enjoy the pairing of smart space with a pleasing environment. The greenbelt areas in the front and back of this home enhance the freedom you’ll feel here.

“I need you to be flexible.”

For some people, a home must have versatility. An open floor plan definitely contributes to the ability to move things around and create your own environment, rather than have walls define them for you. 3400 NW 188th Street is all about this type of flexibility. The Fairfield Bonus floor plan presents 2,499 square feet. The eat-in kitchen opens to the living room. No matter where you are in the main living area, you get a view of the fireplace and the outdoor living area in the back.

The three bedrooms, including the master, are sized for comfort. Avoid the arguments about who gets which bedroom (not including the master, of course) because the secondary bedrooms have the same dimensions.

Beacon Homes added a flex room off the family room, complete with French doors. Use it as an office, study, playroom, hobby space, guest room, library, or media room. Choose how to use it your way.

For even more flexibility, this home includes a second-floor bonus room—a really large area (and half-bath) that will inspire more ways to experience this home.

“Let’s not over-complicate this.”

What type of home will complement your lifestyle? Are you at the point in your life when you are looking for the right one? You could be a first-time homebuyer moving up from a rental, having grown out of the limited space. You might be someone who is moving on from changes in your life, looking to simplify things. Lighten your load. Purge your excesses.

Take a look at the 1,661-square-foot Derby design at 2924 NW 185th Street. It’s on a corner lot, which gives you a nice location in the neighborhood to show off the stone and brick exterior. The Derby is a cozy, charming home with lots of extras.

Inside, explore the finery of the cabinetry and flooring, plus the carefully chosen color palette that fills the home with warmth. Look at the custom tile work on the kitchen backsplash and master bath. How about the built-in shelves in the master bedroom, and the attention paid to the choice of plumbing fixtures?

There’s a lot to love here!

Are you ready to spark up the excitement and energy in your life?
