6 Model Home Features We Love at Teravista


Teravista’s final phase offers a wide variety of new homes, with plans that are perfect for those just starting out, those with growing families, and those wanting to scale down and simplify.One thing all of our leading homebuilders have in common is great design, and there’s no better place to see their creativity than in our fully furnished model homes. Here are 6 of our favorite design features.

Grand entrance. Amazing entries are a hallmark of Westin Homes, and the breathtaking foyer of their Preston III model home in Teravista does not disappoint. This foyer has a soaring rotunda ceiling, but the main attraction is the spiral staircase, which makes a perfect 360-degree circle. The grand scale of this foyer sets the stage for the dramatic two-story ceiling in the family room. Upstairs, the open landing area offers wonderful interior views.

Everyday entry. Today’s homebuyers use the garage entry much more frequently than the front door, so homebuilders like Perry have added increased function and style to these “everyday entries.” Perry’s Design 2420S model home in Teravista has a spacious mudroom off of the three-car garage. With its built-in storage spaces, this mudroom offers a convenient place for family members to stash and grab their backpacks, sports gear and other essentials as they come and go. This mudroom is combined with the laundry room, making it easy to toss muddy shoes and other items in the washer.

One-story or two? Both one- and two-story plans have their advantages. Many people prefer a one-story design to keep everyone in the family on the same level. A two-story home can offer extra square footage and a more defined separation of space. For many homebuyers, a one-and-a-half-story plan offers the best of both worlds. Chesmar’s Gibson model home in Teravista is a perfect example of a 1.5-story home. Most of the living space and bedrooms are on the ground level. Upstairs, it has a fourth bedroom, gameroom and full bathroom. With its grand foyer, the Gibson also offers all the style and drama of a two-story home.

Outdoor living it up. The covered patio in Westin’s Preston III model home is as spacious as any inside living area, providing plenty of space to arrange outdoor furniture for seating and dining groupings. With its cathedral ceiling and tapered Craftsman columns, this covered patio provides this home with backyard style to go along with its front curb appeal.

Work from home. Austin is one of America’s top cities for professionals to work from home, and builders like Perry are filling the need for productive home office space, with features like the spacious library in its Design 2420S model home. The French doors make it easy to open and close off the space as needed, while maintaining views. Other plans offer pocket offices in the kitchen area – ideal for homework and planning.

Treasure islands. In today’s new homes, the kitchen island has evolved far beyond the basic rectangle. The piano-shaped island in Chesmar’s Gibson model home offers a great example of how today’s islands combine abundant seating, serving and storage space. It provides a beautiful and practical focal point for the open family/kitchen/dining area.
