Sitterle Homes, the exclusive builder in Johnson Corporation’s Providence at Riverstone, has opened the Napoli II model with almost a dozen sales on the books. While the Luxury Garden Home Collection is designed for lock-and-leave Boomers with discerning tastes, almost half the buyers at Providence at Riverstone are young professionals.
Sitterle‘s Luxury Garden Home Collection starts at 1,900 square feet and tops out at about 2,700 square feet with prices starting in the $300,000s in Providence at Riverstone. Interior and exterior features mirror the homes some local buyers are moving away from; highly appointed and embellished single-family homes.
Great rooms have replaced the family room and some rooms like living rooms and formal dining are missing, but they are not missed in Sitterle’s garden homes. Storage, collection displays, art niches, and detailed molding are design signatures. Large lawns requiring hours of upkeep are replaced with garden size yards with zero upkeep and relaxing covered porches.
“The garden home concept is well established as being a low-maintenance lifestyle. To that we add luxury and meaningful living spaces,” said Steve Von Hofe Houston division president. “While empty nesters are naturally drawn to the collection Sitterle sees a variety of buyers in all of our markets. Three of the first homes sold in Houston were to single women.”
The Napoli II model in Providence at Riverstone has 2,694 square feet, three bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a two-car garage and a loggia, an outdoor vaulted living space enclosed on three sides. The model showcases a second floor multi-purpose loft room that is available in four of the 10 plans in the collection.
Sitterle Homes has a long history, 50 years, in building quality single-family, custom and garden homes in the San Antonio area. Frank Sitterle, Sr. started building single-family homes in 1964 and added garden homes in the 1970’s. In the 70s they were called patio homes and mostly attracted young, first-time buyers. A large patio home plan was around 1,600 square feet and interior features were standard fare.
According to Von Hofe, Sitterle Homes will open sales at Imperial Sugar Land by year’s end, and will announce several other communities this fall. Sitterle Homes is developing Roesner Woods in Katy, a unique enclave featuring 17 individually gated estate homes a few miles from the Club at Falcon Point.
