The Fields at Indian Creek – Tour Virtually or By Appointment

Categories: Active Adult, Indian Creek | Posted: January 28, 2021

If you’re over the age of 55 and looking for a new home in the Lehigh Valley area, we have just the place for you. The Fields at Indian Creek, a Kay Builders community designed specifically for active adults, has homes starting in the upper $200s. We’re currently offering tours of the functional floor plans and unique amenities virtually or in person. Check out some of the details below to see what this community is all about.  

Central, convenient location   

The Fields at Indian Creek was built close—but not too close—to multiple major roads, including I78 and the Pennsylvania turnpike. This central location makes all of the nearest attractions only a short drive away, including upscale shopping malls, retail centers, movie theaters and restaurants of all cuisines and styles. It is also 2 miles from the largest Hospital in the area. Residents have also come to appreciate the quaint town of Emmaus, with its farmer’s market and historic town square. 

Amazing amenities   

Featuring a lush landscape filled with mature trees, 39 acres of open space, paved trails for walking and biking and part of Leibert Creek, The Fields at Indian Creek is perfect for people wanting to be surrounded by nature. The two-story, state-of-the-art clubhouse is a thoughtfully designed space which aims to keep residents healthy, relaxed and give them the opportunity to socialize with friends and neighbors. Play a few matches of pickle ball or bocce ball, find peace at the yoga studio, focus on fitness in the gym and go for a swim in the resort-style pool. You can also bring your furry friend to the on-site pet park for playtime with others. 

Fantastic floor plans   

Expertly designed for active adult homeowners, the 18 CUSTOM-i-ZABLE floor plans in The Fields at Indian Creek all feature a first-floor master bedroom. We have gone above and beyond the market by including other thoughtful components to make living in our homes stress-free for those 55 and older. Any floorplan can be changed to meet your individual needs. Easily accessible and climate-controlled crawl spaces under your home make for a warmer living space above, are easier on feet and back than homes built on slab, and free up living space because mechanical systems are installed there. Wider hallways and doors, minimal and rampable steps from exteriors, two-car garages, lever-style door handles, comfort height vanities and so much more will help you live comfortably and safely in the space. For further accessibility features, some plans include raised washers and dryers and wide, seated showers. 

Kay Builders also prioritizes energy efficiency in all of our communities. We know this will not only make homes more comfortable and save our homeowners money in the long run, but it also helps us (and our buyers) feel better about the homes we build and how they’ll impact the Lehigh Valley area for years to come.

Looking for a first-floor master bedroom? Look no further

Categories: Active Adult, Indian Creek | Posted: October 21, 2020

Kay Builders has been constructing high-quality, in-demand homes in Lehigh Valley for six decades. We know, more than any other builder in the area, what customers are looking for when they buy a home. And right now, there’s a boom in demand for first-floor master bedrooms. Other builders haven’t seemed to catch on to this trend yet. In fact, we estimate that 80 percent of our competitors don’t offer ranch plans—but we’re way ahead of it. Learn how a master on the main initiative changed the way we select floor plans. 

Where to find them 

Designed by professional architects with expertise in building first-floor masters, Kay Builders offers more than 25 different plans with this desirable luxury. Every single community we build features multiple plans with a master on the main, and The Fields at Indian Creek, our active-adult community in Emmaus for those 55 and over, doesn’t include any homes without a first-floor master. 

Why you’ll want one 

We’ve identified the importance of including these plans in our repertoire, and we’ve taken even further steps in ensuring that they help improve the lives of our homeowners. First, we always include a crawl space in our homes with first-floor masters. When built upon a crawl space, homes and their flooring have a bit of a “bounce”, which while just as sturdy and stable as a house built on slab, is much easier on joints. Second, we take the rest of the home’s layout into consideration when including a master on the main. Even if you want your bedroom on the main floor, you still want a sense of separation from your living, dining and working spaces. That’s why we include strategic hallways and foyers in our designs, to offer additional separation while still being functional and not interrupting the flow of your floor plan. 

Where they came from 

Ranch-style homes were popularized in the 20th century, and were dominating the home-building industry by the 1950s in certain parts of the United States. We’re not sure why the demand didn’t quite resonate with the Lehigh Valley area, but we’re happy to be building them now. 

How to buy one now 

If you’re looking for a master on the main in the Lehigh Valley area, Kay Builders has got you covered. You can even filter our floor plans by master bedroom location to help find the perfect home for you in one of our family-friendly communities.
