Home of the Week: Hopewell Cottage Plan by Stephen Alexander Homes

Hopewell Cottage Plan by Stephen Alexander Homes

Open floor plans are still all the rage, and these days most new homes have a layout where the kitchen and living areas open to each other. The Hopewell Cottage by Stephen Alexander Homes takes advantage of such a layout, which opens the home to so many entertaining and social possibilities for families and their guests.

Located at Fox Trail in Chesapeake, Virginia, this five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home has two levels, totaling 3,141 sq. ft. With an office, formal dining room and a bonus room upstairs, the home provides spaces when family members need time alone. A mudroom provides storage space on busy days for busy families. For multigenerational families, or simply to provide guest space, optional in-law suites provide additional sleeping area.

The home’s master suite is a spacious retreat where an en suite bath is luxurious and has everything necessary for a functional space: separate water closet, dual vanities, a shower and a bath for optimal choice in how to prep for a busy day. For optimal convenience, a second-level laundry room ensures this necessary task is easy to complete.

What’s It Like Living at Fox Trail?

Living at Fox Trail is a lot like living in a rural retreat, where neighbors wave as they pass each other, yet have large enough lots for privacy. The peace and quiet might make residents forget how close the community is to shopping, dining and entertainment, including outdoor entertainment. The Dismal Swamp Canal Trail is anything but dismal, with trails for biking, walking, cycling and even boating. Picnic areas and horse trails make it easy to experience nature up close.
