Only two single level attached homes remain available + learning about the shared wall

In looking at the phase 9 plat, we realized that there are only two single-level attached homes remaining in all of Movado: Two  Winslow-attached models. These two homes are move-in ready and sparkle, not only with the spirit of the season, but also because of the typical Blackrock Homes quality with bright vaulted ceilings and generous brilliant white Quartz countertops. 
In the past four years that I have had the pleasure of showing these attached layouts by Blackrock Homes here in Movado, our tours have expanded from those seeking mostly active adult/senior living options to now include young professionals and nearly everyone in between. The price range and Low Maintenance Living aspects certainly contributing to their initial appeal.

While the interior finishes alone are evidence of quality construction, in nearly every conversation, “How often will I hear my neighbor?” or a similar question comes up. To that extent, the design team at Blackrock bolstered the materials of the shared wall system even further. But first, some quick context.

In many markets, and in our local MLS, these single level attached homes are categorized as “townhomes,” with the most defining aspect being that you own the land the improvements are built on, unlike Condos where you do not own the land. These two single level attached Winslow models are side by side on Matisse Street but connect to opposite attached homes already sold.

Regardless, the double wall system has several sheets of drywall, R-15 insulation, 2 x 4 construction lumber, and a one-inch air gap separating the two walls. In essence, it’s two fire-rated wall systems. The total width is over 11 inches thick.  These structures are built on concrete slab foundations, with the wall systems extending from the concrete to the highest peak at the roof. Please see the illustration below:



The primary improvement from our earlier attached homes is there are now a total of six 5/8” sheetrock layers instead of four.

Attached home living isn’t for everyone, but it can be the right choice if you’re looking for a more affordable home. All attached homes have partially covered back patios and private backyards. Fencing and landscaping is included in the home price, and  lawncare is provided through HOA.

These two Winslow models are currently priced at $398,900. Here are the details on these special homes:

Winslow Single-Level Attached at 4529 E. Matisse St., lot 17/block 13 (photo similar), 3 bed, 2 bath, 2-car, 1,346 s.f., $398,900
Winslow Single-Level Attached at 4521 E. Matisse St., lot 18/block 13 (photo similar), 3 bed, 2 bath, 2-car, 1,346 s.f., $398,900
