Empty-Nester New-construction Home

Empty-Nester New-construction Home


Recently designed by Elise McDonough of Interiors by Elise, this new construction model home was designed for a newly or nearly empty nester buyer. At 2528 square feet the floor plan is a single level home located near a large golf course community targeting a retirement demographic looking to down-size, but still requiring modern, high-end finishes.

I hope you enjoy it!
