• Features: While the days of speculative building are mostly over because of new, tighter lending standards and reduced demand, homes in Downing Green have a few features and options in common. Most offer real hardwood floors and custom tiled showers, and granite in bathrooms, according to Mitch Holland of Waters-Holland Builders. Most homes feature built-in irrigation systems and seeded or sodded lawns, he said. Holland installs dramatic coffered ceilings in the kitchen and master bedroom, and custom cabinetry made from real wood, rather than particleboard.

• Amenities: The neighborhood has a large green space in the middle of the development and offers a pool and clubhouse for homeowners’ use. Homeowners who don’t want to mow their lawn can opt in to a neighborhood program that includes lawn maintenance.
