Home of the Week: Rochester Plan by M/I Homes

Home of the Week: Rochester Plan by M/I Homes

Picture it: on a cool, breezy afternoon, you are sitting on your front porch with a cup of coffee. Taking it all in. Not having to work on the house because it’s brand new and everything you’ve ever wanted in a home.

That’s what immediately comes to mind when you see the front porch of the Rochester plan by M/I Homes in at Weldon in Blacklick, Ohio. It’s a cozy home that truly makes you feel at home. With spaces that are ideal for busy families – like a planning center and a mudroom entrance – you’ll be much more organized and less stressed if you own this home.

A two-story foyer is a wonderful welcome to guests and residents, alike. Adjacent to the foyer are a formal dining room and a den that acts as a flex space that can easily be a study or extra bedroom. An open kitchen has lots of cabinets and a pantry for storage, as well as a center island for ample work space. A breakfast area provides a space for quick meals on busy mornings. The great room in this model has exposed wood beams for visual interest and to make an already spacious room feel even bigger.

The stars of this model home are the workhorses: a laundry room that’s nicer than most bedrooms, a planning center than keeps families organized and a mudroom that stores boots, shoes, coats and bags. And, the home’s front porch and outdoor living areas are places to truly get a taste of nature without having to leave the house.

What’s It Like Living at Weldon?

The Weldon community is surrounded by green space and a nature reserve space, which means you’ll feel like you’re far from Columbus. But the community is also close to Columbus and its attractions, as well as close to parks, downtown Gahanna and the Easton Town Center. You’ll find a small piece of paradise that’s close to shopping, dining and entertainment.
