The Saratoga is one of the four floor plans in our Carriage Home Collection, offering the increasingly popular single-story living. It is a past winner in the Saratoga Showcase of Homes for Best Workmanship, Best Exterior Design, Best Landscaping, and Best Technology Awards. as well as runner-up in the Best Master Bath, Best Kitchen, and Best Interior Floor Plan Awards.
We chose the Saratoga plan for the Showcase because of its appeal to those looking to eliminate the need to climb stairs. It is grand living all on one level which makes it suitable, as well, for all stages of life. The 2,200 square foot home includes three bedrooms, a Study, and 2 full baths. Every bit of space is wisely used -- there's good traffic flow between rooms and we include built-in cabinetry in the mudroom and flanking the fireplace in the Great Room to help organize a busy lifestyle. Traditional elements blend seamlessly with innovative modern touches.
The Saratoga plan interior features soaring vaulted ceilings in the Breakfast Room, Great Room and Master Bedroom Suite and stately ten foot ceilings in all other rooms; gas or wood burning fireplaces; built-in cabinetry in the Great Room; a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, and wet bar; gleaming hardwood flooring in the family areas; a mudroom with built-in bench and cabinetry; and Malta Development’s unique Command Center which is located in a high-traffic area and can be used to organize your busy life.
Other features include a roomy L-shaped front porch; Premium “Charter Oak” vinyl siding with beautiful exterior stone accents for extra curb appeal; an insulated and sheet-rocked two-car garage with handy service door; a carefully graded and sodded lawn with an in-ground sprinkler system; and a landscaping package.
The Saratoga floor plan is customizable, and allows you to add an optional second floor loft, sunroom or patio, plus other design upgrades. Another option is the Exterior Maintenance Program which includes lawn mowing, landscape maintenance, Spring and Fall cleanup and snow removal -- a welcome extra that will leave plenty of time for you to enjoy your free time.
