Parkwood Homes is close to selling out Beeler Park (see available lots here) – so if you are hoping for a beautiful, character filled, semi-custom, single-family home in Stapleton’s newest neighborhood – act fast! This post will give you a quick overview of each Parkwood series and information on what’s still available today.
First up – let me address the most common question we get – what will the total cost be for my new Parkwood? We love creating pricing workups and scenarios for home buyers! Let me know, and I can customize a home based on your preferences. With many experiences at the design center and helping clients through the Parkwood building process (as well as building my own) – I would be happy to use our library of data to help you budget for your new home!
Single Family Homes
As you may know, Parkwood has two variations of single family homes, the Lane homes and the Shenandoah collection. The floorplans are very similar – the main difference is that the Lane homes have alley load garages and the Shenandoah series has front facing garages. You can see examples of the Lane collection on Boston Street in Wicker Park – and I think you’ll love the curb appeal. Lane homes are interesting because they usually face one-way streets or grassy parkways – but the front facing garages of the Shenandoah collection usually allow for larger and more usable backyard space, so it often comes down to your personal preferences.
These Parkwoods are some of Stapleton’s largest homes, with 2,300 – 3,000 sf above grade not including the optional finished basements. Most plans allow for additional square footage on the second floor to create a 4th bedroom/bath and many also allow for a large third floor loft that’s perfect for a bedroom suite, craft area or amazing playroom! You even have the opportunity to customize your floorplan with a home designer (which can include moving walls/adding windows/pocket doors/etc.) or opt for custom built-ins and woodwork.
Since Parkwood is semi-custom, the “all in” prices vary greatly – from the low $700k’s to the $1.2M range. A question we often hear – is it possible to stay under $750,000 and still have an awesome home? Absolutely! Parkwood’s standards start at a very high finish level, so upgrades are often less costly than with other builders. One of the best parts of these Beeler Park homes – the large lots! Parkwood only has a handful of lots left (see attached map) with lot premiums ranging from $30,000-$71,000. For the Lane homes – there is only one lot left – and it’s a corner! This lot will be the beautiful Cape May plan – and with those decks facing West – I think it’s a fantastic choice!

Lane Homes (only one “spec” home left!)
Shenandoah Collection (several prime lots still available!)
Because Parkwood has so many plans and so many exterior elevations (meaning how the home looks from the exterior) I’d suggest meeting with them if any of these plans look good to you. There are a lot of options that aren’t shown on-line.
There are a couple floor plans I want to draw your attention to:
First, the “Asheville” plan in the Shenandoah series has been their best seller for the past few years. It still has the timeless character of the other homes but it features a more open concept main level that many of today’s buyers really want.
Second, the “Madison” plan has an open floor plan similar to the Asheville, but starts at a base price about $50,000 less. This is a great option for buyers who love the Asheville style but don’t have the budget to match the price tag that comes along with the larger floor plan.
Parkwood’s Beacon Hill Collection still has significant availability in Beeler Park – with beautiful 2-3 story townhomes ranging from 1,900 – 2,700 sf range (not including the optional finished basements). You’ll find 3-5 bedrooms, 2 car garages, smaller yards, mostly open floor plans on the main level and many homes have opportunities for 2nd or 3rd floor decks! One of my favorite (and currently available) plans is the Brookline – which features a huge covered 3rd floor deck. The one that’s available happens to face West!
Like the pricing on the single-family homes, the townhome “all in” pricing can be a wide range. These townhomes will typically end up in the mid $600k’s but they have homes closing in the high $500k’s to high $800k’s. Again, you have lots of options and structural changes you can make – so the price can vary – but if you are looking for the most square footage for the dollar – these may be perfect for you!
