Two other nice-sized secondary bedrooms share a bathroom. The third secondary bedroom is set up as an office with a daybed. With its own full bathroom, it could also make the perfect guest room.

Mytrysak notes that Evergreene offers any combination of second-story flooring, from full hardwood to wall-to-wall carpet.

The finished basement includes a large recreation room with space for a pool table and a home theater area. There's also a full bathroom and a room that could be used for exercise or hobbies.

Downstairs is also home to the highly efficient climate control system. By participating in the Home Energy Rating System program, or HERS, Evergreene is able to verify the energy-efficiency of its homes for its buyers. The rating is determined by an independent third party.

HERS sets a rating of 100 for the typical standard new home. A rating of 85 achieves an Energy Star Home qualification. Evergreene homes have achieved a 70.6 rating, meaning that an owner would spend less than 71 cents for heating and cooling that would cost the standard new home owner $1.

Outside, the Evergreene model features custom designed stone walks, both back and front. Out front, an exterior lamp is standard.

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.
