By 2020, five builders will be offering more than 30 floorplans for families to consider. As construction continues, keep track of all of the new homes available in Mueller.
One builder who has already begun construction is David Weekley Homes. In order to offer the most options to new homeowners, the company will be offering both single detached yard homes and attached row homes. Consider the Rainier, a yard home design with a modest backyard space. This four bedroom, three bathroom home is perfect for families looking for a home to grow into while still feeling cozy. The Kal, a row house design, is ideal for homeowners who love to entertain guests: the owner’s suite is isolated upstairs with the two additional bedrooms on the first floor to give both guests and homeowners privacy. David Weekley Homes in the Mueller community start in the mid $400’s.
Another builder to keep your eye out for is CalAtlantic, which is currently offering 11 total plans across three different categories: Mueller House, 45s Yardhouse, and 37s Yardhouse. Prices begin the upper $400’s. Take a look at the spacious Neward, a yard house design, with an isolated downstairs master suite and a covered patio that opens into both the garage and the dining room; this easy to navigate layout is great for homeowners who love hosting holiday celebrations with family and friends.
