Loving the Single (Story) Life

Single-story living is where it's at.

Your home is on one level, your owners' retreat is a silent oasis without the overhead pitter patter of little feet and there's no carrying laundry up and down the stairs. Still, there's an idea that single-story homes are basic and boring. Not true. Woodridge Forest builders are masters at crafting single-story floor plans that are anything but boring. Add some options and upgrades to customize your home and before you know it, you'll be loving the single-story life.

Single-story designs offer a lot of flexibility. For example, many of Gehan Homes and Saratoga Homes floor plans offer spacious rooms as well as the option of turning a bedroom into a study. Bedrooms can become playrooms where the kids can play while parents work or prepare dinner in the spacious kitchen.

Concerns about safety are another good reason to purchase a single-story home. You won't have to worry about children falling down the stairs. If you have elderly parents living with you, they won't have to traverse the stairs to get to their room. In fact, this quick move-in home by Saratoga Homes at 25226 Pastoral Trail has a mother-in-law suite. In fact, all of Saratoga's single-story homes offer optional extra rooms so no matter what size your household is, the builder can easily configure it to fit.

Beautiful outdoor living spaces have become very important. Most homes offer a covered patio but adding an extended outdoor living space to your single-story home opens up a world of possibilities. This Gehan Homes' move-in ready design at 22456 Brass Bell Drive demonstrates how you can increase your entertainment space just by extending the patio.

Of course, there are many, many other ways to customize your single-story plan. You can change up the bathroom or the kitchen, add hardwood floors or exchange box windows for bay windows.

Another advantage of a single-story home in Woodridge Forest is how accessible it is to our exciting amenities and gorgeous natural surroundings. Visit or model homes, in person or virtually, then speak with a builder representative to see how you can customize your favorite floor plan today.
