Home Features That Will Grow With YOU!

You never know what life will throw at you. At Cornerstone Homes we believe that your home should accommodate your future needs as well as making sure life today is the best it can be. That is why all our homes are built with “Timely and Lasting Features,” also known as Universal Design Features.   Our variety of universal design elements provide safety, comfort, and convenience, all while contributing to your home’s contemporary appeal. Unlike older homes, Cornerstone homes are friendly and convenient for everyone — from grandchildren to grandparents.

Read below about our Bedford floorplan which you can build in our Church Square community, and come out to see for yourself some of these features that will make life more comfortable for you. These features are why most of our homeowners love their new homes. And just in case one of those unexpected surprises happen, you’ll be ready to keep on keeping on!   

Here are some of these features of this wonderful home:

Single-Level Living: With all of your daily needs located on one floor, accessibility, heating and cooling, and transitioning to outdoor areas has never been smoother. Higher ceilings and open floor plans make for easier living, and of course, no more running up and down stairs!

Natural and Supplemental Lighting: Large, open windows and optimal lighting ensure that your home is always well-lit, day or night. Forget about fumbling through the dark — we’ll light the way!  

Zero Threshold Owner’s Entry: If you’ve ever tripped while entering or leaving your home - with an arm full of groceries or rushing out to an appointment, fear no more. This error-free entryway guarantees that you get into your home as easily and safely as possible, every single time. 

Electrical Socket Night Lights: Located in both the kitchen and in your owner’s bath, these lights provide prime nighttime visibility. When you need to get up at dark hours of the night, you can get around without a hitch.

Wide Design: Gone are the days of feeling stifled or stuck. In a Cornerstone home, you’ll enjoy wide, accessible hallways, doorways, and living spaces, so getting in and out is always a breeze. Bonus: Wide design makes moving easy! Your king size bed frame or large antique dresser will fit through doors and hallways without a problem.

Visible Flooring Transitions: Let’s face it, flooring should never be an obstruction. We offer a variety of designer non-slip flooring transition strips that provide danger-free accessibility from room to room.


Lever-Style Door Handles: When your hands are tired or sore, the last thing you want to do is grip a doorknob. In a Cornerstone home, you’ll enjoy lever-style door handles in stylish brushed nickel finish for the easiest entry ever.

Structural Support for Grab Bars: We all need a little support from time to time, especially in the slippery shower! Rest assured that your bathroom is a safe space with structural support for grab bars on the walls. Let us give you a hand!


Comfortable Height: Taller bath countertops prevent you from having to hunch over as you’re washing up. Similarly, taller toilet seats make sitting and standing so much easier and reduce strain on your back and knees.

As the only exclusive builder of active adult communities in the Greater Virginia area and we spend more time and resources implementing ways to make sure 55+ homeowners live happier, healthier, and more engaged lives. That’s why you can rest assured that our homes make living better today and in the future. Leave your worries at the door; your Cornerstone home will be ready for your lifestyle from the very start! Watch our Tuesday @ Two video to learn more about why Church Square is a great choice for you to begin living your best life!
