Meritage's Glacier nears closeout

Meritage Homes' Glacier, an all single-story neighborhood in the builder's Yellowstone community at Mountain's Edge, a southwestern master-planned community, is nearing closeout, with only five homes remaining, according to sales agent Jeannette Franklin.

Floor plans feature split three-car garages, front courtyard entries and up to five bedrooms. Ranging from 2,360 to 2,736 square feet, the homes are priced from the $400,000s.

"These homes are one-of-a-kind. A one-story floor plan of this size, placed on pool-sized lots within a community with the views and amenities of Yellowstone is hard to find," Franklin said.

"With our current incentives, these five remaining homes will not last."

The 2,462-square-foot Silver Rim Plan Two is a five-bedroom, three-bath design with a great-room layout, dining room, split three-car garage, circular-tiled entry and island kitchen with bar counter seating. One of these homes remains.

Glacier's Golden Trail is a four-bedroom, 31/2-bath design of 2,602 square feet.

The home includes an expanded great-room layout with the option of a wet bar and miniature refrigerator.

The kitchen includes a food-preparation island with double sink and dishwasher. Counter space can be extended into the dining room area. Structural options include a casita with bath at the one-car garage.

Glacier's largest floor plan, the Diamond Peak Plan Four, is a four-bedroom 31/2-bath design of 2,736 square feet.

The front courtyard leads to a covered porch into a tiled entry. Pony walls overlook the separate living and dining room areas.

The family room is adjacent to an island kitchen with tech center, dining nook and pantry.

Options include a den with bath at a secondary bedroom, an extended covered patio and guest suite with parlor and bath.

Choices in exterior elevations are Tuscan, Southern Italian and Spanish Colonial architecture with stone, shutter or quoin accents.

All homes include fully landscaped front yards with automatic sprinkler system, concrete block walls enclosing the rear yard, three-car split garages with paint-finished interior and entry courtyard area.

Interiors are highlighted by 10-foot high ceilings, custom architecturally-rounded corners, Moen plumbing fixtures throughout and plush flooring.

All homes are Energy Star and ComfortWise-rated with low-emittance, dual pane windows, fully insulated, exposed exterior walls and ceilings, programmable thermostat and manifold water system.

"With as much as $120,000 passed on to our buyers for closing costs, to buy down interest or reduce pricing, our last five homes at Glacier are the deals of the century," Franklin said.

Yellowstone at Mountain's Edge is a collection of five planned neighborhoods surrounded by mountain views, pedestrian walkways, bicycle paths, green belts and neighborhood parks.

Ranging from single-story to two-story home designs, the neighborhoods are centered about the builder's fully-staffed residents' clubhouse.

The multimillion dollar facility offers three pools with spa, fitness center, barbecue area, party room, basketball court and children's play area.
