Celebrate the New Year in Your New Miller & Smith Home

Posted on December 6, 2022 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

The new year is almost upon us.

It’s a time for new beginnings—for finding new patterns and new places.

And there is no better place to start a new year than in a new Miller & Smith home.

Each expertly built new home throughout Virginia and Maryland is further proof why Miller & Smith has been the DC area’s premier builder since 1964.

Our homes combine our decades of award-winning experience, our unique approach to excellence, and our dedication to delivering our homebuyers the most innovative and imaginative homes in first-rate communities.

But what are some of these innovative features and spaces—and ideal locations—that make our homes so desirable, especially for those seeking a new start in the new year?

Let’s explore some of the aspects of our Quick Delivery Homes to find out!

Your kitchen is the heart of your new home. It fills your spaces with delicious aromas, provides nourishment for your family and guests, and creates a reason for all your loved ones to come together. Our chef-inspired kitchens are a signature part of what makes Miller & Smith homes special.

From a 7-layer dip to a 3-course meal, oversized islands, granite or quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances give you all the surfaces and power needed to prep and prepare your delicacies. And details like 42” maple cabinets and walk-in pantries ensure you have lots of space to keep your plates, utensils, and ingredients safe and organized.

Breakfast nooks are also a feature of some of our Quick Delivery Homes—that extra dining space that’s more relaxed than your formal dining room. A place to have a cup of coffee and a donut in the morning or a glass of wine and a plate of delicate macarons to end the day right.

Entertaining Spaces
Part of the joy of owning a new home is showing it off and sharing its wonder with friends and family. So, to be fully happy, you need plenty of room to entertain. Every Miller & Smith new home is built with entertaining in mind, with spaces specially created to share.

And we maximize the enjoyment of every room to give each homeowner the desire to delight. Many feature 9’ ceilings, creating instantly airy party spaces with more room to dance and decorate. Some even have optional coffered ceilings for more overhead personality.

If you look at our floorplans (like this one for The Clarion, one of our Quick Delivery Homes at Retreat at Westfields), you’ll see where homes by other builders offer a “living room,” our new homes have “great rooms.” Great is not only based on the spacious size of the rooms, but also how you’ll feel entertaining in them. Some even feature optional gas fireplaces, to make your great room feel even fancier and festive!

Bedrooms & Baths
To make any home feel just right, you need to have the proper balance of bedrooms and bathrooms. That is, you need enough for your family and guests to all have their own private space.

Miller & Smith homes have all bedrooms you want and the bathrooms you need. We make sure your bedrooms are enough for your family and space for guests to stay over with just the right amount of included and additional optional bedrooms. And you’re sure to have all the bathrooms you need for everyone in your home to feel comfortable.

But we also pay special attention to building you the perfect primary suite—your own private sanctuary. You can expect such features and options as tray ceilings and light-loving windows for extra opulence. And for the spa-inspired primary bathrooms, enjoy decadently decorative tile, comfort-height dual vanities, and huge showers with seats or zero-entry showers with easy-to-clean frameless doors.

Bonus Spaces
Miller & Smith gives you more spaces to enjoy inside and out. Areas that enhance the livability of your new home, assuring you that you made the right decision for the new year.

Private outdoor space is always valued, and that’s why many of our homes come with optional decks, screened porches, or both. Each creates a special way to extend your home into nature and let you more fully enjoy life in your home.

And speaking of added enjoyment, we pride ourselves in building extra spaces like large, lower-level recreation rooms and upper-level lofts in our various home models which provide even more places to have fun in. Movie nights in the rec room or sleepovers in the loft are just a few of the in-home events you can look forward to in your new Miller & Smith home.

But sometimes home needs space that works for you and for you to work in. Family foyers (sometimes called mudrooms) are available in many of our designs to keep the outside from being tracked all over your home’s inside! And studies give you a dedicated, separate, and quiet place for working, learning, or gaming (let’s be honest) from home in peace.

What’s in your home is important, but where you home is located is equally essential to your overall happiness. So, for the new year, pick a spot for your new home that has everything you want right where you want it.

Miller & Smith selects only the best communities to build in. We look for communities that provide even more value to our homebuyers, and communities that will make them feel even more at home.

We built in Tapestry in Clarksburg, MD that’s close to the great outdoors at Black Hill Regional Park and Little Seneca Lake, and minutes away from Clarksburg Premium Outlets and Black Rock Center for the Arts. We create in Patapsco Crossing in Ellicott City, MD, near to Historic Ellicott City while being surrounded by beautiful trees.

Our townhomes are wrapped in green space at The Retreat at Westfields in Chantilly, VA, near Route 50 and everything in Northern Virginia. And for those 55 and better, our villas in Cascades at Embrey Mill in Stafford, VA provide multiple clubhouses, pools, a bistro & café, parks, and hiking trails right inside the community.
