Marrano celebrates 60th anniversary

As part of a year-long celebration, the Marrano/Marc Equity Corporation begins 2016 with the grand opening one of its most popular ranch-style homes in Amherst this weekend.

Marrano has been building homes with innovative features for the residents of Western New York for 60 years. The builder will showcase its building/developing experience in the model home at 73 Boxelder Lane and home sites in the next phase in Evergreen Landing.

“To kick off our 60th Anniversary celebration, this home is being offered at a special price of $299,900,” said Dana Caito, new home construction professional for Marrano. “The model is available for immediate occupancy.”

This one-floor design presents an abundance of space, yet is easy to maintain, Caito continued. “The model is shown at 1,489 square feet of living space, but the plan can be built with numerous design changes which allows customers to build this home to meet their own size requirements — from 1,300 to more than 2,000 square feet.”

The home’s curb appeal includes a country cottage façade, full front porch and wooded lot. The sheltering front porch opens to a guest-greeting foyer that provides a clear view of the open design.

Hardwood flooring flows from the foyer into the country kitchen on the right. The U-shaped kitchen highlights granite countertops, maple cabinets with coordinating crown moulding and custom light fixtures.

The dinette is set in a window at the front of the home while a pass through opening looks into the great room at the other end of the kitchen.

The great room (main photo) — a combination of formal dining area and family room — gains vertical proportions with a tray ceiling.

An energy-efficient gas-burning fireplace, at the far end of the room, is flanked by Pella patio doors. They add natural light to the room and offer a view that overlooks mature trees at the rear yard.

The tour continues to the left of the great room with two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, the mudroom entrance from the garage and a laundry room. The owners’ suite includes a walk-in closet and a private bath.
Central air conditioning, eight-foot high basement walls and energy-efficient Pella windows are included among Marrano’s features.
The Evergreen Landing community is located off Tonawanda Creek Road a quarter mile east of Niagara Falls Boulevard. This family-oriented neighborhood is close to shopping, restaurants, everyday services and easy access off the Thruway.
Evergreen Landing will also be the site of Marrano’s 2016 home show. Many home sites in the community back up to woods for privacy or scenic pond views. Home prices range from $270,000 to more than $450,000.
The model at 73 Boxelder is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and a two-story model at 50 Boxelder is open from 1 to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, call Dana Caito at 808-8669.
