Maronda Homes "Creekwood"

The "Creekwood" floor plan for Maronda Homes had a start price of $89,400 in 1987 and was raised to $91,400 in 1989 depending on the upgrades. The Creekwood has two different floor plans.  One for a 3 bedroom and another for a 4 bedroom.  There are a few modifications to this plan throughout the community.  On some homes the front windows wrap at an angle towards the front door with the door being set back a few feet.  Other homes the windows are straight.  This home has a galley kitchen and a terrific 14x29 screened back porch.  It also has an indoor laundry room which was popular in the late 80's.  Check out the Standard Features on the bottom picture.
