Highland brings the media room downstairs for more family togetherness
In most new homes today, the media room is upstairs, away from the main living areas.
For its two new model homes in Hollyhock, Highland Homes is turning this formula upside down, locating the media room downstairs, near the kitchen and family room.
“In every model we’ve built with the downstairs media room, home buyers have loved it,” said Gonzalo Romero, vice president of architecture for Highland Homes. “This layout really encourages family togetherness for movie nights and game day. Even at breakfast, it’s great to watch the morning news in surround sound.”
When they make their debut at this fall’s grand opening, Highland’s two fully furnished model homes in Hollyhock will both feature downstairs media rooms, along with many other design innovations.
The largest model, Plan 296, will display an optional media room at the back of the home, right off of the open family room and kitchen area. The covered outdoor living area adds another gathering space in the home’s main hub.
Designed for 74-foot-wide homesites in Hollyhock, Plan 296 will also display the second master bedroom option, which transforms the downstairs guest bedroom into a spacious suite with additional square footage. The main master suite is also downstairs.
In the dining room, the butler’s pantry will offer plenty of wine storage space. Upstairs, there will be three more bedrooms and a gameroom.
The media room is located right in the middle of the main floor in Plan 248, which will be Highland’s model home for 65-foot-wide homesites in Hollyhock.
Another innovation is placing the study at the back of the homesite, instead of its traditional location next to the front door.
“Moving the study to the rear of the home provides a more quiet place to work, where you can enjoy a relaxing view of the backyard, and keep an eye on the kids while they play,” said Romero.
Upstairs, Plan 248 will display an optional fifth bedroom with a full bath, and the gameroom will have a computer area with a built-in desk.
While Highland’s two Hollyhock model homes will showcase many innovations, the employee-owned company prides itself on offering classic and timeless designs.
“Our home plans are filled with volume and open sight lines, but we don’t try to be trendy,” Romero said. “We want our homes to provide buyers with ageless design for many years to come.”
Pricing for Highland’s design collections for 65- and 74-foot homesites in Hollyhock will be released in an upcoming preview event.
