Featured Townhomes Floor Plan: The Aspen
The versatility of the Aspen floor plan is discussed.
In Monclova Township, on a quiet cul-de-sac called Lakeside Drive, there is a new building of 8 two-story townhouses called Lakeside Townhomes.  In it, there are three different floor plans, each with a private entrance, a private garage, bonus area downstairs, and an airy great room upstairs that sports a terrific view of the 3‑acre lake.

Each unit has a terrific view of the lake from the great room.

The Aspen Floor Plan. In this article, we feature the 1,474 square‑foot Aspen floor plan, which represents four of the eight units in the building.  The Aspen plan, like the slightly larger Aspen II, includes two upstairs bedrooms and a two-car garage.

Aspen 2 Bedroom

In standard trim, the price of an Aspen unit is $126,900.  Of the four Aspens in the building, two are built to the point of primed drywall and uncovered floors, ready for your choices of standard or upgrade paint, floor coverings, appliances, countertops, cabinets, faucets and more.  The Aspen can be finished to your taste, including your decision of whether to build out the Bonus Room and the Bonus bathroom.  It’s a versatile plan:  there is even flexibility to build it as a large one bedroom model by combining the area of the two bedrooms into a master suite.  For those who want a fully completed townhome for immediate occupancy, the other two Aspens are ready to go, one with the optional finished Bonus Room and bath, the other with the Bonus area unfinished.  In case you missed it, The Toledo Blade’s Featured Home article on November 19 covered the model home at Lakeside Townhomes, which is an Aspen floor plan.  Copies of the feature are available in our sales model.

Kitchen

Two of the building's Aspens are in move-in condition.  We chose ebony-colored beech cabinets with light granite in one, and birch cabinets with brown granite in the other.

What is a “Bonus Room,” Anyway? The bonus area is set of rooms on the first floor behind the garage that can be built out to suit the customer’s need, such as an extra bedroom or a family room.  In standard condition, this area consists of cement floors and walls defined by bare studs with a bit of rough drywall, plumbing and electric, and not much more.  Think of it as a “first floor basement” and you have the idea.  For an additional $8,800, these rooms can be finished with carpet and tile, bathroom and lighting fixtures.  The upgraded area includes the Bonus Room with two adjoining walk-ins and a full bath.

Townhomes Location. The Lakeside Townhomes are located on Lakeside Drive, which runs south from Monclova Road at a point 1.5 miles west of St. Luke’s Hospital.  From I-475/US-23, exit at US-24 (exit 4), turn east toward Maumee, take a left on Monclova Road at the light, then left on Lakeside Drive.  For more information about the Townhomes or to make an appointment for a showing, you can click the “Contact Us” button on the www.mccarthybuilder.com website or call us at (419) 376-0106.
