Courtyard Series homes with an outdoor living space are being offered for the first time in our area, and you’ll want to be among the first to tour this unique design.  At Schell Brothers, we just completed our first Courtyard Series model at The Villages at Herring Creek and we’ll be launching the full series in the next few weeks.  People love this series because it’s based on extensive research about what Boomers are looking for in a home.  The courtyard area provides a usable, private, and comfortable outdoor living space – accessible to the main living area and master bedroom suite – that “lives” like another room of the house.  For example, the Mulberry at The Villages at Herring Creek has three “outdoor rooms”:  a dining area, a sunbathing/lounge area, and an outdoor living area that includes sofas and chairs with a fireplace.  Come on out to The Villages at Herring Creek and tour this unique Courtyard design for yourself.
