In 2022 It's Time for Timely and Lasting Features

At Cornerstone Homes, we believe that life is full of wonderful surprises, and this is your time to enjoy them, without your home holding you back. As you venture into the next exciting phase of life, and think about what you need in the new year and beyond, enjoy peace of mind knowing that our homes are thoughtfully designed to work for you today, tomorrow, and into the future.

It’s about time for you to enjoy a home that simplifies everyday living, accommodates life changes, and allows you to spend more time doing what you love. That’s why we build our Cornerstone homes with timely and lasting features that allow you to grow in your home and enjoy a world of possibilities without any barriers.  What are timely and lasting features?  Features such as no steps, no thresholds, wide doorways and hallways, comfort height countertops, lever door handles…. And more!  

In 2022, gift yourself the safety, comfort, and convenience, and built-in-friendships of a new Cornerstone home. Our variety of universal design elements, guarantee that your new home is comfortable for everyone – from grandchildren to grandparents. Let’s talk about some of our included timely and lasting features:

Single-Level Living: It’s about time to move more freely. 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 stairs in your way!

Living room.

Natural and Supplemental Lighting: It’s about time to see everything you need, clear as day. 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: It’s about time to walk more confidently.  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: It’s about time for reliable lighting. Located in both the kitchen and in your primary bath, these subtle lights provide prime nighttime visibility without ever burning out. When you need to get up at dark hours of the night, you can get around without a hitch.

Entry way.

Wide Design: It’s about time to dance when no one is looking. Gone are the days of feeling stifled or stuck. In a Cornerstone home, you’ll enjoy extra wide, accessible hallways, doorways, and living spaces, so getting in and out is always a breeze - and so is impromptu dancing with a loved one. 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: It’s about time that things just make sense. 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: It’s about time that even the little things are easier. 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: It’s about time for the support you need. 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: It’s about time for a home that accommodates you. 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. 

This is your time, and 2022 is your year - to live closer to who and what is most important, and to do what you love. That’s why no other builder in Greater Virginia spends more time and resources implementing ways to help 55+ homeowners live happier, healthier, and more engaged lives. Our homes make living better today and in the future. Leave your worries at the door and enjoy peace of mind. Your Cornerstone home is ready for your lifestyle!
