Ultimately the floor plan of the model at Ashbury Woods sold us. It was so well-done; we walked in and said “this is exactly what we want”.

We have lived in Woodglen for three years and we love it. The main living area is spacious, and when you add the finished walk-out basement, we have plenty of room when the family comes over. There is even enough room for our grandkids to run around and play.

Don and Scott Stevens from Donven Homes were very pleasant to work with. They were very responsive to all of my concerns and put me at ease throughout the buying process.

It was the overall value. The quality, the construction, the community and overall aesthetics. The seclusion of the property, being away from road noise was important for us. The location is really perfect for us. It was the overall setting of the community. The property has beautiful, mature trees and the ambiance was attractive. We were looking for a ranch home and this fit our needs. The overall layout of the property versus other properties we looked at; there was no comparison.
