New Home Trends and Tips
Choosing the best new home means that you must consider a lot of factors. There are the details about the home (size, location, etc.) that are important, but finding a community with the lifestyle you want matters too. So is finding a home builder you can trust. That’s why we partner with award-winning builders in Virginia. One of those great builders is LifeStyle Home Builders!
Founded in 1990, LifeStyle has over 25 years of experience serving home buyers in the Richmond region. What sets LifeStyle Home Builders apart is that they tailor the home building experience so it’s all about you.
We caught up recently with Kevin McNulty, LifeStyle Home Builders’ President, to chat about trends he’s seeing and tips for new home buyers.

Kevin McNulty: LifeStyle works with our clients to personalize their home to their own tastes. We have a wide variety of floor plan sizes, layouts and styles to suit the tastes, needs and preferences of most any home buyer. Our clients have the opportunity to bring their design ideas to life when they work with our professional interior designer in our dedicated Design Studio space, prior to construction.

Kevin McNulty: Convenience areas and items such as mud rooms, drop zones, key drops, USB outlets. Also, we are building a lot of homes with a first-floor guest suite.
HHHunt Communities: Why do you choose to partner with HHHunt Communities?
Kevin McNulty: HHHunt is an extremely competent and professional developer. They do great community planning, and they build strong amenities for the homeowners. And while they execute the details very well, they also are good visionaries and they get the “big picture,” working consistently to build long-term partnerships through trust and relationships.
HHHunt Communities: You’re currently building homes in Holloway at Wyndham Forest and Westin Estates. What makes these communities special?
Kevin McNulty: Both are located in the popular West End of Henrico County, and feed one of the most popular area schools – Deep Run. Holloway is conveniently located just off of Nuckols Road and I-295. With a new club house coming soon, beautiful, well-constructed homes, and a variety of product styles, Holloway has something for every home buyer. Westin Estates is a quiet, secluded neighborhood, tucked away but still just a short drive from great shopping in and around Short Pump Town Center. With 1 acre lots, Westin Estates offers a truly unique setting and amazing streetscape.
HHHunt Communities: What advice do you have for individuals searching for a new home in the Richmond region?
Kevin McNulty: There are a lot of great local builders here in the Richmond region, and many communities with great locations, fantastic amenities, and a great quality of life. Do your homework, and then find a builder that you feel confident will take great care of you.
