5 Reasons a Neo-Traditional Home is Right for You


Neo-traditional design like that of the models from Dan Ryan Builders at Brunswick Crossing has become a growing modern trend in new construction. As its name suggests, neo-traditional design incorporates popular traditional methods of home design with elements of modern new construction practices and materials.

With traditional decorative styles that utilize modern building materials like vinyl and mock-brick, neo-traditional homes truly feature the best of both worlds. This mixture of new age and old school is just one of the many reasons a neo-traditional design is the right choice for your next home. Here are five more great reasons:

1. Various Options

When it comes to Brunswick Crossing homes that are built with a neo-traditional design, homeowners have several options to choose from. Between The Jefferson II, Monroe II, Wesley II, and Clemson II, Dan Ryan Builders offers four elegant and stunning neo-traditional models within the Brunswick Crossing community.

All of these options include at least three bedrooms, two baths, and at least 2,100 square feet but also have different features and customizable options that make them unique. Regardless of which neo-traditional design that you choose, they’re all just steps away from Brunswick Crossing’s trails, shopping, and community center.

2. Functional Features

All of the neo-traditional homes at Brunswick Crossing have functional features that make them more livable and comfortable. Open-concept first floors and spacious foyers in these modern -- yet traditional -- models give families plenty of room to grow. The owner’s suite in these neo-traditional models includes owner’s bathrooms and walk-in closets for your everyday convenience and privacy.

For those who like to work in the yard or take to the trails and athletic fields at Brunswick Crossing, Dan Ryan Builders’ Wesley II model features a mudroom where you can keep muddy shoes or other outdoor recreation items.

3. Customization

The neo-traditional design models at Brunswick Crossing have customizable options that help homeowners truly find the perfect fit. If there’s a particular feature you’re looking for in your new construction home, there’s a good chance you can find it or have it added to one of these neo-traditional design models.

For instance, The Jefferson II model has deluxe bath choices in the owner’s suite and a front porch option, among other exciting exterior finishes. These neo-traditional design homes also have an optional fourth bedroom and two-car garage in their floor plans.

4. First-Floor Living

One of the best parts about the neo-traditional homes at Brunswick Crossing is that they allow their residents to age-in-place. Aging-in-place consideration is a modern trend in home buying because homeowners want to be able to conduct all of their basic living on the first floor of their home if need be. This is particularly important to older generations.

With a first-floor owner’s suites in certain Brunswick Crossing neo-traditional models, you achieve this type of first-floor living and save the upstairs bedrooms for guests.

5. Community

When you choose to live in a neo-traditional design style home at Brunswick Crossing, you get more than just a showstopping place to live, you also get a community of neighbors and amazing amenities.

"You just [drive] down the street, and people just wave. I like that. No one is afraid to say hi to you,” Brunswick Crossing resident Karen Joy said. Our residents truly appreciate the community lifestyle at Brunswick Crossing and make it an excellent place to live.

It doesn’t matter which neo-traditional home you choose to live in; they’re all just steps away from the many amenities at Brunswick Crossing like trails and walkways, athletic fields, dog parks, playgrounds, community pool, and more.
