This week the Eagle Spirit cottage at National Village won Professional Builder Magazine's gold award for "Best Single-Family Product – 2,000 sq/ft or Below". Other awards presented included "Best Multi-Family Home", "Best One-of-a-Kind Custom Home", and "Best New Community".
Below is the write up by Professional Builder Magazine on the Eagle Spirit cottage. Congratulations to the team on this well-deserved award!
Situated on the outskirts of Auburn, Ala., near the Grand National Golf Course National Village offers 11 plans across three neighborhoods surrounded by 300 acres of open green space, a pool complex, trails, the golf course, and Saugahatchee Lake for boating and fishing.
The Eagle Spirit model is one of three plans offered in the Eagle Bend community. Starting at $234,900, the single-story plan features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an open floor plan offering an abundance of daylight and indoor-outdoor connection. Front and side porches and side-yard patios offer outdoor living opportunities, while 9-foot ceilings make the home live larger than its size. The interior plan includes features like a drop zone for keys, mail, and other items as the owners walk into the home and spacious pantry to maximize storage.
"This is a builder's model that is part of a community that is full of southern charm and tradition," said judge Donald Evans. "This home is contextual, fitting in tho the fabric of the neighborhood. The home exudes well-designed details both inside and out, creating a successful living environment. It lives very large for its conservative size."
