Elmwood Farm offers estate-style luxury

April 14, 2007|By HARRY NOGLE

The prestigious community of Elmwood Farm is the first Ryan Classics community to be created in Washington County, bringing a whole new level of elegance and luxury to the Williamsport area.

"This is a community for people who appreciate personal growth," said Sales and Marketing Representative Denice Putt. Elmwood Farm is "an upscale community at affordable prices," she said.

Elmwood Farm, a picturesque planned community featuring an abundance of open space and walking trails, offers magnificent estate homes set on lush 1/2-acre home sites. These homes feature extensive landscaping upgrades and distinctively multi-tone brick fronts.

"This is a community that gives the homeowner value before they move in to the home," Putt said. "This is spacious living, with backyards that are large and allow for family activities."


Elmwood Farm offers easy access to Interstates 81 and 70, plus U.S. 11. The Valley Mall, Prime Outlets and The Centre at Hagerstown provide shopping opportunities. The Arts and Entertainment district of downtown Hagerstown is fewer than 10 miles to the north.

College level educational opportunities are available in the Hagerstown area. The Hagerstown Community College and the University Systems of Maryland are located in Hagerstown.

Homeowners will find plenty of opportunities for recreation, with the Potomac River and Antietam Creek nearby, and the Whitetail Ski Resort and Appalachian Trail within sight. The Antietam Battlefield and C & O Canal are just two of the many historical sites located in Washington County.

Elmwood Farm offers a choice of nine Classics models with from 3,000 to 7,000 square feet of living space. Features include lustrous hardwood floors in the foyer and powder room and a cozy fireplace. The spacious kitchens include many of today's most sought-after features. Other custom features, such as bay windows, porches, home wiring and flooring options, allow home buyers to create their true dream home at Elmwood Farm.
