National Village is a community catering to all types of homebuyers, with Craftsman-style houses on wooded lots and 300 acres of open green space, a resort-style pool complex, tennis, nature trails, and fishing. It’s also right next to the Grand National Golf Course, which was voted the No. 1 public golf course in the U.S. in 2010.
The three–bedroom, two-bathroom homes have open floor plans and lots of natural light. But to give them unique charm, thoughtful details such as hardwood floors, screened-in porches, custom kitchen cabinets, and granite countertops were added. Homeowners can choose between gas and electric ranges, and between a side porch and a side-yard patio. Other features include 9-foot ceilings, double carports, and fully equipped kitchens with stainless appliances.
