Maxwell plan by Rocklyn Homes

Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Rocklyn Homes for winning a Gold OBIE in the Best Building Design – Attached Model $199,000 and under category for The Maxwell floor plan, available at Belmont Hills in Lithonia. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

When is a two-story townhome more than a two-story townhome? When it’s the Maxwell by Rocklyn Homes! This value-packed model is bigger, bolder and more beautiful than its competitors. Starting at $167,400, it’s a top performer at Belmont Hills in Lithonia.

The Maxwell’s thoughtful design and lifestyle-rich layout resonate with first-time homeowners, young professionals and single parents ready to transition from renter to buyer. With an open floor plan and upmarket features, this 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home is quick to impress. Step inside the 8-foot glass front door and enter an oversized foyer. The relaxed first-floor living space, rich with 3-inch hardwood flooring, opens up as you move down the hallway.

To your left is the handsome galley-style kitchen. The upgraded stone and glass backsplash creates a magical sparkle that is mimicked in the black quartz countertops. The on-trend look plays out with complementary gray cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. The pantry? Huge!

The kitchen overlooks the dining/living room with fireplace. A standard 3-foot bump-out adds about 72 square feet to the 1,467 square-foot footprint. At first glance you may not see the gently arched staircase toward the back of the living room. But once you do, you can’t help but look again.

Climb up and check out the second floor with laundry closet, large guest bath and two secondary bedrooms, both roomy and window-bright. At the rear of the home resides the deluxe master suite, accessed by sophisticated French doors. The master bath beckons with double vanities, separate tub and extra-large seated shower. Note the ceramic tile and expansive window over the garden tub.

“Visitors always comment on the size of the home—it’s much bigger than they expected—and the workmanship, especially compared to other communities in the area,” says Community Sales Manager CJ Hawkins. “They also love the windows and the fully fenced back yard.” Another big plus is the Maxwell’s flexible design. Care to remove the tub in the master bath and create a mega-closet? You bet we can!

Spacious, surprising, and oh what value! Rocklyn Homes’ Maxwell is an owner favorite that’s way ahead of the competition.
