March 11, 2021

If you want to be close to the action and amenities of the city but enjoy spacious lots, thoughtfully designed homes and an exclusive, private community, Norfolk Homes has just the place for you. Located three miles from downtown Ann Arbor is Cornwell Farms, with 27 estate-sized homesites situated in a charming, country setting. Fourteen homes have been sold with several homes reserved. Read on to see all the benefits of moving to this perfectly located community. 

Experiencing Ann Arbor

Consistently ranking near the top of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Places to Live, Ann Arbor has a little bit of everything—it combines the Midwestern college town charm with big city opportunities and entertainment to create the perfect place to live, work and play for residents of all ages. 

Outdoorsmen will enjoy hiking or biking their way through the beautifully-maintained parks and trail systems, while fishers and kayakers can spend time on the Huron River. Sports enthusiasts will love cheering on the University of Michigan Wolverines. Golfers, whether novice or experienced, can play their way through one of the highest concentrations of courses in the nation. Appreciate the arts and culture by visiting one of many first-rate museums, art galleries, or music venues—but be sure to mark your calendar for the unique events and festivals that Ann Arbor is home to every year. 

Boasting a lively economy fueled by the university, technology companies, health services and biotechnology industries, Ann Arbor has a below-average unemployment rate and a highly educated population. 

Beautiful and private community living   

Nestled in the rolling hills of Ann Arbor Township, Cornwell Farms features the sprawling homesites you’ve been dreaming of. Enjoy a quick commute to the city and its multitude of amenities while living in luxury alongside your friendly neighbors. Our regionally-specific home exteriors create charming curb appeal and upscale streetscapes in the Cornwell Farms Community.

Luxury floor plans and features  

The executive homes included in this community range in size from 2,500 square feet to over 4000 square feet. Choose from ranch, first floor master or two-story plans, all featuring a three-car garage. Each expertly designed floor plan was made to maximize functional living space within the home and create an ease of flow between areas.  

If you’re looking for a plan with plenty of space and customization options, The Richmond won’t disappoint. The first floor includes a large chef’s kitchen with a harvest room , as well as a formal dining room off the expansive family room. A private study near the front entrance can serve many purposes to enhance how you live in your home.  Upstairs you’ll find the owner’s suite with a massive walk-in closet and bathroom, three additional bedrooms and two more bathrooms. Optional add-ons vary from a second powder room downstairs to a bonus room upstairs.  

The Kent is the newest floor plan in the community, with an exceptional four-bedroom standard floor plan and options that really set the plan apart. Add-ons include an in-law suite on the first floor with its own washer and dryer, replacing the first-floor powder room with a full bathroom, giving each bedroom on the second floor its own private bathroom and an additional bonus room on the second floor. Without selecting the options, homeowners will still enjoy almost 4,000 square feet of living space with dual staircases, a formal dining room, study for working from home and a flex room that can be just about anything you need—home gym, playroom or even a second office. 

Other four-bedroom plans include The Canterbury with a first-floor master retreat, The Hampton and The Winchester. Select Norfolk’s finished basement option and add a second family room, additional bedroom and additional bath.  

Looking for the same level of luxury, but not needing four bedrooms? The Clare features three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms in a single story plan. Family and friends will love spending time on the covered porch located off the great room and adjacent to the spacious kitchen and attached dining room.
