Marrano grand opens a modern Craftsman model in new Lockport Community

Heather Woods, Marrano’s new community in Lockport, is what a neighborhood should be.

Quality homes, friendly living and convenience make this community a special place to call home. In additions, a blend of exclusive Marrano designs, including two-story plans, ranch options, and designs with first-floor master suites, make Heather Woods a great choice for any stage of life or lifestyle.

“Families are drawn to Heather Woods because of its location and charm,” said John Manns, executive vice president of sales and marketing, Marrano Homes. “Not only are you close to local shopping, dining and entertainment, but you’re just minutes from highway access to Downtown Buffalo. On top of that, this special neighborhood is quiet, safe and beautifully established, making it easy to picture as home.”

Located at 6344 Rebecca Road in the reputable Starpoint School District, ranked number one in Niagara County, Marrano’s Heather Woods model home features a popular classic Craftsman design with 2,135 square-feet of living space. Boasting a side entrance garage, gables, board and batten siding, a full front porch with tapered columns and a professionally landscaped front lawn, this home’s curb appeal is nothing short of spectacular. Add on decorative wide trim and headers, along with a front entrance that has double sidelights with a privacy rain glass, and it’s essentially unforgettable.

When visitors enter the model home, they’ll walk through a stunning two-story foyer, illuminated by an expansive clerestory window that allows plenty of natural light to flood inside. A modern, open floor plan features the lastest in trending features and a design that rivals any home on HGTV. With four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, it’s perfect for any size family.

The heart of the home is a large two-toned country kitchen that opens into a sun room with its shiplap feature wall.

The heart of the home is a large two-toned country kitchen, easily considered “fully loaded” with a huge center blue island, illuminated overhead by stylish pendant lights. Exquisite natural granite countertops, ceramic tile backsplash and natural hardwood floors give this home a classic and clean look, while an adjacent brightly lit sunroom will entice guests to curl up with a cup of coffee and stay awhile. In addition to the cheerful light brightening the room, guests will fall in love with the sun room’s unique shiplap feature wall.

The great room is also open to the kitchen and looks out over the big back yard. The gas fireplace features an Arabesque tile face.

A popular great room is centered around a unique gas fireplace with Arabesque tile surround, making it a perfect place for family to gather. Homeowners will truly feel home when they walk into the stunning master suite. Relax in the spacious layout, explore the room-sized closet and unwind in the deluxe ceramic spa bath to know what luxury living really feels like.

With everything home buyers care about – a modern, open layout, comfortable master suite and central kitchen – Marrano has not forgotten the extra touches that make a home perfect for busy lifestyles. Featuring a convenient, second-story laundry room with built-in cabinetry for storage, residents won’t understand how they lasted so long with a washer and dryer in the basement. In addition, keeping the open concept organized is simplified by a mudroom off the garage with a perfect landing zone to hide clutter.

A large master bedroom also has a big walk-in closet and ensuite master bath.
The Master bath features a unique tile pattern in the walk-in shower and dual sink vanity.
Beauty and convenience are built into this Marrano home. A handy second floor laundry saves time for a busy family.
