Home Feature: The Clipper Model Living Room ImageThoughtful Floor Plan

We designed the Clipper home to support your lifestyle and maximize space. Every element of the floor plan was designed for efficiency and comfort, from the convenient mudroom to the open living area and storage options. The mudroom keeps coats, shoes, and laundry out of sight with an entry closet, bench, and laundry station. As you step into the home, the floor plan expands into an open concept main living area with a gourmet kitchen that flows into a dining room, living room, and patio. The living area receives plenty of natural light with designated zones for meals, enjoying a glass of wine, or relaxing with a movie.

The main bathroom is located conveniently just off the family room and bedrooms are secluded on the opposite end of the house. This maintains the quiet and private atmosphere you want from your bedrooms, even with kids or guests watching television in the family room.

Indoor/Outdoor Living

The Clipper home was designed to seamlessly incorporate indoor/outdoor living. With large windows in virtually every room that let in plenty of natural light and three porches, you won't feel disconnected from nature. The smaller front porch off the master bedroom offers a private outdoor retreat while the large rear porch off the kitchen and dining room is ideal for entertaining guests, celebrating with family, and relaxing outdoors. With the optional porch screen, you can even enjoy your porch without mosquitoes, bees, and flies crashing the party.

Home Feature: The Clipper Model Master Bedroom ImageSpacious Master Suite

Our Clipper model boasts a spacious master suite you're bound to fall in love with. The master bedroom leads to the master bath with an optional double bowl vanity and a large, well-lit walk-in shower. From the bathroom, step into your large walk-in closet with shelving for easy organization.

The jewel of the master suite is the private access to your own spacious porch. While guests and others in your household have access to the main porch from the living area, you can enjoy private access to the outdoors from your master bedroom. This cozy patio offers the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee, relax with a good book, or take in some fresh air in the evening.

Upscale Features and Upgrades

Every element of the Clipper home model is designed to make life as easy and comfortable as possible. Throughout the home, you can choose from quality flooring choices like carpet, tile, or hardwood. In the mudroom, choose between a built-in bench or lockers with optional cabinets for convenient storage. The family room features an optional central fireplace to keep you warm and toasty on cool winter nights complete with optional built-ins or a wine bar that complement the adjacent gourmet kitchen. If you plan to spend a lot of time on your porch, consider upgrading with a porch screen, a great solution for enjoying the outdoors free from the insects and elements.

Home Feature: The Clipper Model Kitchen ImageThe kitchen is the heart of every home and it shows in the Clipper home. Our custom designed kitchen features a large central island with a sink and bar. Entertain guests while you cook or enjoy the beautiful views while washing up after dinner. The Clipper kitchen also includes plenty of upscale standard features like granite countertops, high-quality solid wood cabinets, and a full suite of GE stainless steel appliances.

This commitment to quality materials and workmanship extends to the exterior of your new home. Like other home models in Mainstay at Yorktown, the Clipper features beautiful Coastal Craftsman style architecture designed by an award-winning local architect. Fiber cement siding by James Hardie offers superior longevity and peace of mind with a 30-year warranty.

At 4th Generation Home Builders, we designed the Clipper model with you in mind. Every element of the model, from the carefully designed floor plan to the quality of the products we use, were chosen to reflect our core values of integrity, quality, and honesty. The Clipper can be easily adapted to fit almost any lifestyle, whether you're just getting started on life's journey or you're ready to settle down into a low-maintenance and comfortable home.
