Fox Valley Estates


Metal roofing, concrete porches, interior transom windows, pressure-balanced shower faucets, pocket dining room doors and 17 recessed lights are just some of the "design features" offered in the Magnolia model that Selfridge Builders has opened at Fox Valley Estates in the West Friendship area of Howard County.

The 4,000-square-foot traditional sells for $489,000 and the standard version of the Magnolia has a base price of $457,000.

An 8-foot-wide wraparound porch welcomes the buyer to the Magnolia. A 15-by-13-foot dining room and 13-by-13-foot parlor flank the two-story entry. The first-floor master suite has his-and-her walk-in closets, a 19-by-17-foot bedroom and a bath with dual vanities, brass plumbing fixtures, privacy toilet, whirlpool tub, separate shower with seat and cherry, pecan or white cabinets. A 17-by-13-foot loft is optional.

Completing the entry level are powder and utility rooms, a 21-by-19-foot gathering room, a 19-by-14-foot kitchen with cooking island and pantry, 13-by-10-foot breakfast area, 7-by-7-foot home station, a two-car garage and a rear porch.

A 14-by-7-foot computer room, a 13-by-13-foot bedroom with a private bath, a linen closet and two bedrooms which share a third full-bath occupy the second floor.

Gas heat and an unfinished basement are standard.

Starting at $326,000 for 2,700 square feet, the Hathaway is the smallest and least expensive home Selfridge is offering at Fox Valley.
