Three New Home Designs Bring Easy Living Innovations to Snowden Bridge

The New Look of Great Value

We’re excited to bring you the best value and the most desired options to Snowden Bridge with the reveal of three all-new home designs. These stylish homes feature three to four bedrooms and spacious, open floorplans. Choose the plan that fits your family’s style, from main-level living to traditional three-level options.

The Riverton

This innovative ranch-style home was designed with today’s homebuyer in mind and provides easy access to all your most important spaces. The open-concept design means the kitchen flows through to an ample family room. And though the impressively spacious owner’s suite is just across the room, its en-suite owner’s bathroom and walk-in closet make it the perfect secluded escape when you need it most.

We’re currently wrapping up construction on our new Riverton model at Snowden Bridge. You’ll be able to step inside and experience easy living for yourself later this summer.

The Pendleton

This new single-family home design combines the ranch-style layout and open floorplan of the Riverton model and takes it to the next level.

A spacious kitchen and great room flow together seamlessly to create the ultimate entertainment space. The owner’s suite offers plenty of privacy and you can add more living space by finishing the lower level with a recreation, den and full bathroom.

The Sheridan

Along with offering the most space of the new home styles at Snowden Bridge, the Sheridan sets itself apart with a traditional three-level floorplan and optional front porch. In fact, this design offers the best opportunities to enjoy outside living with an optional sunroom and walk-out basement.

The floorplan embraces a flowing, open layout to create comfortable, casual spaces while a more formal living/dining room offers a touch of elegance.

We’re excited to unveil our new home designs and can’t wait for you to find the one that fits your life. Built for easy living, they’ll give you more time to make the most of the exceptional Snowden Bridge lifestyle.

Hundreds of interested home shoppers formed a line outside the restaurant hoping to have the first pick of available homesites. Current Del Ray residents and those from across the D.C. metro area had all come to Junction Bakery & Bistro for Del Ray Place’s Grand Opening event this past March to learn about this rare opportunity for new construction in the heart of Alexandria’s beloved neighborhood.

It was a large crowd and the sense of excitement around the room filled the air. Yet, even then, we weren’t considering what would happen next.

Within just days of the Grand Opening, we reached a mark we had not anticipated. As of now, Del Ray Place is over 50% sold out.

Thank you for all who attended. We’re truly honored by the incredible response we received to these new, innovative condominiums. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to reserve your residence, we would love to help you find your way home to Del Ray Place, too.

But you’ll need to act fast. We’re still several months away from completing construction, but you can’t wait that long to ensure your place. Home shoppers acted quickly to claim select 2-bedroom and 1-bedroom residences. A good selection of modern 1-bedroom residences remains, perfect for first-time buyers and empty-nesters.

So head to the Del Ray Place website to schedule a private appointment today. There you’ll find all the details about floor plans and amenities and learn more about the neighborhood. But most importantly of all, you’ll get the chance to reserve your residence so you can share in this exceptional lifestyle.

Thinking About Buying Your First Home? Read This First.


If you’re like many people in the U.S., you’ve wrestled with the idea of purchasing a new home at some point or another. But if you’re still not sure if it’s the right move for you, you’re not alone, either.

Below are five of the most frequently asked questions we get from potential first-time homebuyers — you may even have had some of them, too. We’ve got answers. Take a look.

Why is Homeownership so Important?

Buying your first home is a major milestone. It’s one of the best decisions you can make for your future. It’s not just a place to call your own, but a time-honored step in securing financial stability and accumulating wealth.

The benefits are immediately clear when you can start building equity instead of throwing your hard-earned money away for rent each month. In fact, according to the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances in 2016, a typical homeowner’s net worth was $231,400, while that of renter’s was only $5,200.

While homeownership is the path to build equity and secure your financial stability, it’s also likely the biggest financial decision you’ve ever considered, so it’s important to be informed and know your budget before you jump into anything.

How Do I Know What I Can Afford?

First and foremost, it’s essential to determine the state of your finances and whether you can afford this big next step.

Once you’ve made a budget, set aside funds for a down payment and received pre-approval for a mortgage, then you should begin thinking about the lifestyle you want to lead and exploring communities and homebuilders that have piqued your interest

Fortunately for you, we can help make this first step smooth and simple by financing through our handpicked group of preferred lenders. As members of major regional and national financing networks, they can help you secure the most competitive rates available. And they can help you pre-qualify for financing before you even begin your new home search.

Where Should I Start Looking?

Next, it’s time to start dialing in on the home of your dreams. You might have a strong idea about where you want to live but it’s always a good idea to look across the region and compare different areas for price, cost-of-living and lifestyle considerations.

Shop around — Brookfield Residential offers a extensive range of communities and home styles in Maryland and Northern Virginia.

During this search is where you’ll need to define what factors and features are most important to you. Is a specific location most important? Or do you prioritize community amenities and a strong built-in social network? Is there a feature that you absolutely have to have?

You might just find the perfect community is out there for you. A place that checks all the boxes and falls in the budget. If you’ve taken the time to explore our wide selection of Brookfield Residential communities, you’ve likely already found it.

How Do I Choose the Right Homebuilder?

Now that you’ve picked your ideal location, it’s essential that you verify the credibility of your homebuilder. In much of the Mid-Atlantic region, local, regional and national homebuilders are all in competition, but that doesn’t mean they share the same set of standards, ethics or priorities.

By researching and reviewing homebuilder testimonials from those who have recently purchased at your community of interest, you’ll gain insight into what you can expect once you sign that dotted line.

Once you’ve narrowed the field to a select few, there’s another key factor to consider. How will your homebuilder keep you informed and involved throughout the construction process?

At Brookfield Residential, we pioneered the first-of-its-kind My Brookfield Home App.

Now available in the App Store and from Google Play, this continually updated app empowers you to stay connected, from the day you sign your contract to closing day and beyond.

Are There Ways to Speed up the Process?

Don’t forget to consider Move-In-Now Homes during your search. These homes drastically expedite the process of owning a new home because they’re already built, already upgraded and all ready for you today.

Let’s Get Started

If you have any questions or could use guidance on starting your search, don’t hesitate to reach out. Contact a Brookfield Residential Sales Manager today. We’re here to help. Best of luck and happy house hunting!
