Darling Homes Touts Luxury Patio Homes in Riverstone

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - June 25, 2008) - Darling Homes' new patio designs in Riverstone demonstrate that downsizing buyers do not have to sacrifice luxury, as the homes boast a wealth of upscale amenities.

The Houston luxury home builder has opened a model patio home in Riverstone's Meridian Park, a new neighborhood near the 110-acre Lake Riverstone. The Tuscan-themed patio designs range from 2,500 to 4,000 square feet with base pricing from the $440,000s to $590,000s. Buyers can select from seven one-story and three two-story designs.

Darling offers its Brilliance Collection of standard features for the upscale patio homes, including tile roofs, full gutters, double crown moldings, wrought-iron stair balusters, eight-foot solid-core doors on the first level, granite countertops in kitchens and master baths, ball-and-claw custom cabinets with granite countertops in powder baths, built-in refrigerator cabinets, Thermador appliance packages and more.

Buyers also can customize the plans, many of which include multiple outdoor living areas, with such structural options as a game room, media room, three-car garage, walk-up attic storage and even a guest casita opening to an outdoor courtyard.

Darling Homes buyers can further perfect their homes by working with an interior design professional at the Darling Homes Design Center. Each buyer receives six hours of individual consultation to select from an array of design options.

Meridian Park is just one of Riverstone's best Sugar Land neighborhoods. Construction also has started in Crescent View Estates and Hartford Landing, two enclaves featuring Sugar Land custom homes on Lake Riverstone.

Builders for the two sections include Peterson Homebuilders and Christopher Sims Custom Homes, new to Riverstone. Custom craftsman Westport, Sterling Classic and Bayou Bend Homes will continue their building programs within Riverstone. Sugar Land luxury homes in Crescent View Estates are priced up to $3 million or more and homes in Hartford Landing are priced up to $2 million.

Abundant dining and shopping choices are just minutes away, including First Colony's booming Town Center.
