Prescott, AZ Real Estate Community, Talking Rock, Unveils Models for Ranch Cottages and Ranch Homes

PRESCOTT, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 8, 2007 -- Talking Rock, a private, master planned community located just north of Prescott, Arizona, recently opened Prescott area custom homes and semi custom home models for its Ranch Cottages and Ranch Homes. The 3,400-acre luxury home community encompasses a casual western lifestyle and the amenities of an exclusive country club, while offering residents several housing options.

Models were just opened for the Ranch Homes, a semi-custom home option, built by Fisher Custom Homes. Ranch Homes feature ranch house architecture and offer indoor/outdoor living spaces with spacious decks and patios. Ideal for Prescott home buyers not interested in the time commitment of a custom home, Ranch Homes have all of the features and amenities of a custom home but are built in about half the time of a traditional custom home. Situated on tree- covered homesites just under one acre, Ranch Homes are available in four floor plans ranging from 2,400 to 2,800 square feet. Some homes have the option of a third car garage and/or guesthouse. Standard amenities include alder cabinets, granite countertops, wood-burning fireplaces, and Asko, Subzero, and Wolf appliances. Ranch Homes begin in the mid-$700s.

Also recently unveiled are the model homes for the second phase of Ranch Cottages -- detached, single-family homes surrounded by Talking Rock's private 18-hole golf course. Ideal for the homeowner seeking a carefree lifestyle, with gracious amenities, Ranch Cottages offer the convenience of a lock-and-leave lifestyle. Designed and developed by Geoffrey H. Edmunds, the Ranch Cottages offer unmatched style and grace while capturing the very best of casual western living. Ranch Cottages are available in five floor plans and range from 1,960 to 2,555 square feet, and certain floor plans offer the option of a third car garage or guest/bunkhouse. Standard amenities include ceramic tile flooring, Berber or plush carpeting, granite slab or ceramic tile countertops and Viking appliances. Ranch Cottages begin in the mid $500s.
