OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, Oct. 11, 1-3 p.m.

The house at 18230 Brighton Grn. still has that new-house smell, built in 2012 by David Weekley. It’s located near Frankford and Hillcrest in the gated Windsor Crest neighborhood, and has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a half bath, and 2,733 square feet on two stories. There’s virtually no yard to care for (and maintenance is included in the HOA fees), so this is a low-work property—but nice views of the wooded creek in backyard.

The first-floor floorplan is open, with the kitchen near the entrance with white cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. The ceilings are tall and there are hardwood floors on the first floor. The master is downstairs, and two bedrooms and a gameroom upstairs, as well as lots of storage and closets.
