KTGY-designed Noble’s Pond, Sydney Plan in Dover Wins 2017 Best of 55+ Housing Award
LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – International award-winning firm KTGY Architecture + Planning is pleased to announce that Noble’s Pond, Sydney Plan in Dover, Delaware, designed by KTGY, received a Silver Award in the category of Best 55+ Detached Home On The Boards at the 2017 Best of 55+ Housing Awards held at the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Orlando, Florida. The award, presented by NAHB’s 55+ Housing Industry Council, was announced at the event’s 25th Anniversary Awards ceremony held on January 10, 2017.
KTGY was hired to redesign Noble’s Pond existing floor plans and elevations to improve sales. The new plan is larger, although it still fits on the original lot size. The redesigned floor plan includes many features that cater to the 55+ home buyer. The living space is forward with a generous front porch standard, a large foyer space, a dedicated owner entry area with a drop zone situated in a concealed entry from the garage, and extra workshop/craft space in the garage, optioning as storage or as an extension to the master walk-in closet. The plan also features a spacious rear deck or an optional four-season room, a den or optional third bedroom for a home office, guests or grandkids. There is a convenient pass-thru from the master bath to the laundry and a stair for an optional attic, loft or basement. The new elevations utilize highly-pitched gable roofs, dormers, decorative porch posts, standing seam metal accents, brick, decorative shutters and trim/cornice details to enhance the homes’ curbside appeal.
Additionally, KTGY-designed Griffin Plaza in Simi Valley, California received the Gold Award for Best 55+ Independent Living Community On The Boards and a special Innovation Award.
