Mytrysak said that as a regional builder, Evergreene prides itself on attention to detail and flexibility in construction that many volume builders can't or won't provide.

"We're not here to fit you into our house, but to fit our house around you," she said.

Evergreene deals exclusively with W.C. Ralston Architects of Chantilly.

TOURING THE MODEL

Visitors are greeted by a brick stoop that is standard for the elevation used for the Lexington model. The front door has a formal look with sidelights and a transom that shower the foyer with natural light.

The model's handsome decor was designed by Interior Concepts Inc. of Annapolis, Md.

To the right is the formal dining room, with an upgraded trim package that includes crown molding, chair rail and shadow boxes. It is connected to the kitchen via a butler's pantry.

To the left of the foyer is a compact living room--a sitting area that would be a great space to curl up with a good book.

The entire main level has hardwood flooring and 9-foot ceilings. Standard features throughout include wide baseboard trim, four-panel doors, fireplace mantels with dentil molding and brushed nickel doorknobs and plumbing fixtures.

The foyer continues toward the main living area. It's an open floor plan with island kitchen, breakfast nook and family room.

The kitchen offers a handsome look of granite countertops, tall kitchen cabinets and stainless-steel appliances. The model's granite and cabinetry are upgrades from the standard.

The optional morning room bump-out is a nice addition to the area, and opens to the rear deck. Skipping the bump-out would mean direct access to an expanded deck from the breakfast area.

Another nice touch in the model is a mudroom from the garage that features Evergreene's award-winning cubby design--a place dedicated to stowage of the kids' coats and backpacks.

That arrangement also puts the laundry pair upstairs, where the dirty laundry is.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The master suite, with an elegant tray ceiling, adjoins a large walk-in closet and a luxury bathroom with dual vanity. The model sacrifices a tub for a larger tile shower and solid-surface vanity. Cultured marble is standard.

A clever look in the model's master bath is the tree wallpaper that mimics the stand of trees seen through the bathroom window.

Lee's Parke was approved for 2,250 single-family homes, plus 400,000 square feet of commercial space, by the Spotsylvania Board of Supervisors in 2002. The board stipulated that build-out not occur within 14 years in order to phase in the growth.

The county also received proffers from developer Fried Cos. of Springfield that included 2.3 miles of Spotsylvania Parkway between U.S. 1 and Leavells Road.

Fried vice president David Lesser said the developer still holds hundreds of lots in the 1,125-acre subdivision and, noting the economic downturn that stunted residential growth, now anticipates build-out in 2022, 20 years after approval.

The future commercial development is slated for the open space on the south side of Spotsylvania Parkway.
