Ryan Homes in Brookside (Warrenton, VA) is Bringing Back the Rambler

Northern Virginia is all about the two story colonial.  Bedrooms upstairs.  Main level with formal living and dining, kitchen and family room.  One level living in a single family home built post 2000, that IS NOT in an active adult community, is a rarity.

After hearing about Ryan's new construction in Warrenton's community of Brookside, I had to take a peek at their rambler for myself.  Of course, the on-site sales staff prefers to not call it by the style, but its floor plan name---The Brentwood.  

The minute I stepped into the Brentwood, Ryan's new construction rambler style home in Brookside, I was in love.  One of the first things I noticed about the Brentwood was the tall ceilings and arched doorways.  So differnt that what we are used to seeing in Northern Virginia.  

As the model is laid out is exactly the way I'd want it.  Instead of having three bedrooms on the main level, it's got two.  The Master Suite and a second bedroom.  The third bedroom can be switched out for a study, as it is in the model. However, if you add on the optional sunroom, you may not need the study. 


The heart of the home is the great room.  This is the family room that is open to the kitchen and dining area.  This home is all about the way most folks actually live in a home.  Of course, if you prefer having a formal dining room, that third bedroom's other option, instead of being a study, is turning it into a formal dining room.

Details are where the Brentwood wins you over.  Those arched doorways and soaring ceilings.  The second bedroom's cathedral ceiling makes an ordinary room amazing.  The light pouring in above the kitchen cabinetry along the very high vaulted wall, is another touch that is simply perfection.

There are options for a basement and even a finished room on the second level with a bathroom.  You can really do the Brentwood up and still enjoy all that main level living space.



If you've been looking for a rambler in Bristow and Gainesville, or just want something with main level bedroom that isn't in an active adult community, you should call me and I'll take you through the Brentwood at Brookside.  Brookside, while it has a Warrenton address, is not far from Gainesville or Bristow in terms of distance and the community itself offers pools, playgrounds, fishing ponds and even lake access.  

Allow me to show you the only new construction home I know of that offers rambler style.

Hello Chris Ann, what a great description of the Ryland's Brentwood model(the rambler). I feel like I've just previewed the home in person.

Hi Chris Ann, now that I would buy in a heartbeat! Here on Long Island we call them Ranch homes which are one-level living space. Most have basements. That builder is smart to build homes that are rare for your area. I am sure they sell super fast.

We looked forever for a one level home, alas, our search eventually became "master on the main" because of the dearth of one level living outside of a 55+ community.  Ryan has hit a home run with this model, I'm sure!

Jackie:  I bet we see more and more main level masters as time marches on.

Michelle:  It's stunning, isn't it?

Susan:  It's such a nice style home.  And you could really make it much larger with the addtional room upstairs and the basement.

Ryan has 3 developments currently being built in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. I know they offer this model I haven't seen too many of these being built. Overall the Colonial is still a hot seller. Their developments are doing well in our area.
