The Heights of Weatherford

Categories: Neighborhood News | Posted: May 10, 2017

In honor of our first model in Weatherford officially opening, we decided to chat with our sales consultant about her experience so far working in the area! Brandy is new to the #AntaresFamily, but has fit in since day one. She genuinely loves her community and the city of Weatherford! We wanted to share her thoughts from the recent interview about The Heights of Weatherford Estates.

Q | What is the best part about working in Weatherford?

A: As soon as I hit that Parker county line I feel like life slows down and everything seems less rushed and hurried.  The small town charm and vibe won me over out in Weatherford and I feel like I am already becoming part of the community fabric.  I recognize folks and everyone waves.  Weatherford feels wholesome and safe and the people are so friendly and welcoming.  I love the older buildings and the adorable antique and gift shops.

Q | What makes the Heights of Weatherford Estates unique?

A: The bucolic setting and countryside.  I have never seen a community that is so beautiful with fantastic countryside views.  You feel like you are at the tip of the hill country when you look out towards the south western horizon.  It’s the epitome of what Texas is all about.  Natural beauty and a country setting.

Q | What’s your favorite memory from your temporary sales office?

A: Bonding with my builders in a confined space.  It really allowed the builders and I to all form a close relationship.  In a trailer, there is no such thing as privacy…  You can hear every conversation whether you want to or not.  So, I feel this helped both of the Jasons and I bond quickly and led the path to great communication.  We (spend) more time with one another than we do our own spouses.  So having that open communication and being able to share the triumphs, frustrations, and interactions throughout the day has made us become more of a family that has each other’s backs.  I think the trailer solidified our work relationships.  We are all passionate about being the best team we can be and being successful in Weatherford.

Q | What do you most look forward to about working from your new model home?

A: Being able to actually demonstrate the endless features and quality amenities built in each Antares Home!   Before I was selling the features without being able to demonstrate them.  NOW, I can demonstrate the features and that makes such a difference!

Q | What is your favorite feature in your new model home?

A : It’s hard to choose just one.  I think the things that you usually only find in custom homes such as the window seat in the dining nook and the master bedroom, the built in shelves in the kitchen island for recipe books, and the art niches make the home feel like a custom home!

Q |  Why is the model home’s floorplan perfect for prospective homeowners looking in your community?

A: We hit the target demographic perfectly with this plan.  Buyers these days are savvy.  They don’t want a 3,000 (sq ft) home to maintain with wasted space/sq footage.  My homebuyers are looking for smart and functional use of space.  They want a home design that fits the way their family lives everyday.  They want lots of island space and cabinets in the kitchen knowing that is where everyone gravitates to.  They want flexible space that they can use as they see fit such as the front dining room  Most use that as a study or a second living room instead of a formal dining room.  People love that the master bedroom is separated from the secondary bedrooms to give everyone privacy.  The master bathroom feels like a spa retreat and the closet space throughout the entire plan insures that there is plenty of storage!

The Plan That Stole Our Hearts

Categories: Featured, Master Builder Musings, Uncategorized | Posted: October 5, 2016

We love all of our floorplans.  When they’re still under design, we post them on a white board for all employees to comment on.  Our company employs former chefs and interior designers amongst those with other specialties.  We squeeze every possible cool feature into the allotted space in every floorplan together.  Each plan is a work of the heart that involves every employee’s feedback.

As a parent, you try not to pick favorites, but we all know you do.  Home builders can have the same sort of struggle. Especially marketers who get to work with the plans a lot after they’re finished and then spend hours editing and posing pictures. We definitely have a favorite.  Don’t tell the other plans.  We cannot get enough of our 2092 layout!


Kitchen Nook with Chandelier & 3-Sided Fireplace

The entertaining space is an ideal balance with a large open area and a closed-off formal dining.  As a native Texan, I love having people over to watch some football, but not everyone likes to actually watch the game.  These people (bless their hearts) can go into the formal dining and play games. The 3-sided fireplace is dramatic and elegant while providing separation for a third group to eat in the kitchen without interrupting the super serious football game!


From the Nook to the Family Room

The really amazing thing is that the open-concept entertaining space only makes up half of the plan!  This host-friendly house becomes a warm home when you move into the private rooms.  The master suite is gorgeous and features a spacious master bathroom.  The walk-in closet could really be a whole room on its own.  The two other bedrooms are well-sized and share an ample bathroom.

You can see why we have a special place in our hearts for the 2092, but at the end of the day we love all our floorplans.  Antares Homes builds other plans that are also gorgeous, and they all have their own special features.  We’d love to know what plans you love and why, so leave us a comment!

Until Next Time,
