A Community in Bloom
The DeLuca Homes empire continues to grow with the unveiling of its newest community, Flowers Field
by Mindy Toran

This month, the curtain will be lifted on a new community of luxury townhomes in Yardley. Flowers Field, developed by DeLuca Homes, will welcome potential home buyers into its model home grand opening on Saturday, Nov. 21 with a catered wine and cheese party to show off its distinctive new properties.

Built in collaboration with architects from Norristown-based BartonPartners and designed by interior decorator Mycle Gorman of DesignWorks in Bristol, the homes offer a mix of historic, Old World charm with upscale, modern amenities and layouts. The community was designed to be reminiscent of Society Hill, and every home will have a distinctive, one-of-a-kind look and feel.

In addition, the community will have a unique streetscape, offering restaurants, boutiques and other establishments around the perimeter and within walking distance to enhance the environment and residents’ quality of life.

“Flowers Field, which is named after the family that once owned the land, will offer a truly unique, niche community,” says Kate DeLuca Benza, director of sales and marketing for DeLuca Homes. “The homes were designed to have a city feel, with garages in the back and elegant architectural style on each façade. The inside of the homes, which range in size from just under 3,000 square feet to more than 3,200 square feet, are incredibly spacious and built for entertaining, with open floor plans, luxury kitchens, high ceilings and modern amenities.” Pricing starts in the mid-$600,000s.

The community is located adjacent to Edgewood Village, near the intersection of Langhorne Yardley and Stony Hill Roads. The location is ideal for homeowners looking for easy access to major highways, pubic transportation, airports and cultural institutions.

“Centrally located in one of Bucks County’s most desirable areas, the community should appeal not just to locals that already love the area, but also to people from Central and North Jersey and New York, as well as people looking for a city-like experience within the suburbs,” says Benza. “We chose this location because so many people want to live in the Yardley, Newtown and Doylestown boroughs but, until now, were unable to get in because there was no availability and new product was pretty much nonexistent. While the homes were designed to appeal to people in all stages of life, Flowers Field is extremely attractive to those who may be looking for a lower maintenance lifestyle but still desire a beautifully designed, distinctive home where they can entertain and enjoy an active social life.

“Our goal was to design a community that maintained historical architecture and aesthetics, while offering a maintenance-free lifestyle,” says Benza. Each townhome is unique, with a variety of elevations and an endless palette of color and materials to choose from. Façade styles include Colonial, Craftsman, Federal, Queen Anne, Victorian, Gothic and more. Hardieplank siding is designed to emulate cedar siding, and detailed exterior millwork on the eaves and cornices make the homes look and feel like those in Newtown or Yardley borough. Five floor plans are available, each with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and a rear two-car garage, as well as a full basement.

“These are spacious homes with beautiful, open floor plans,” says Benza. “While it’s not an over-55 community, the low maintenance needed for the exterior of the grounds is appealing to people in that age group. Some models also offer first-floor owner’s suites and the option for an elevator in others. Upscale amenities include a signature kitchen in each home featuring granite countertops, hardwood floors and deluxe appliances. There are also plenty of opportunities for customization, including options such as a chef’s kitchen, wine cabinets or appliances built into the cabinetry.”

DeLuca Homes has a history of creating quality, innovative, distinctive homes and communities throughout southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The family owned and operated company is run by second-generation partners Vince and Joe DeLuca, who focus on building communities, not just buildings, and aim to create neighborhoods planned and designed to fit into their natural surroundings.

“We’ve put so much thought, consideration, time and love into this particular project, right in our own backyard where the company was born and raised,” says Benza. “We’re proud to deliver a community designed to meet the needs of homebuyers in and around this demographic area.”

“It’s great to see our signature community, Flowers Field, prepare to open our model home with such good buzz around it,” adds Joe DeLuca. “Like all of our neighborhoods, this community has been thoughtfully designed down to the last detail, and we are thrilled to now deliver the finished product to the public. Seeing the neighborhood take shape with the old Society Hill-type streetscape that we imagined for it is very exciting.”

Flowers Field aims to create a community that promotes Old City living by combining modern-day amenities with historic charm.

“The people we’re catering to want homes that offer upscale amenities without the upkeep that their current homes require,” says Benza. “They’re looking for a home that requires less maintenance on the outside and plenty of space inside to relax and entertain. They also want to take advantage of living in an upscale, metro area where they can pursue an active lifestyle and easily walk to a bakery, store or restaurant. Flowers Field offers an attractive option for community living with an exceptional quality of life.”

The Flowers Field model home will offer a sample of three of the floor plans available to potential homebuyers. The decorated model will feature the Primrose, with a second-floor master suite, finished basement with a wet bar, a stone fireplace, laundry cabinets and an option for a butler’s pantry and elevator. Undecorated models of the Aster and Camellia will also be available to walk through.

Flowers Field is located at the intersection of Langhorne Yardley and Stony Hill Roads in Yardley. DeLuca Homes will welcome prospective residents to a Model Grand Opening party on Saturday, November 21, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information or to RSVP, contact Joanne Marricone at 215-944-8468 or visit www.delucahomes.com.
