New Construction Homes for Sale by Size

The need for more (or less) space is one of the top reasons people start looking for a new home. Many of these homebuyers need more bedrooms or bathrooms to accommodate a growing family. According to the U.S. Census data for single family homes built in 2021:

  • Approximately 45% of newly built homes had 4 bedrooms or more
  • Only 9.59% had two bedrooms or less
  • 99% had three or more bathrooms
  • 78% had one and a half bathrooms or less
  • The median size of new construction homes was 2,273 square feet

The Internet has made it easy to shop for a home in the DFW area from anywhere, but there are a lot of options out there: community, builder, design, lot size, lot location, and more. Fortunately, Pecan Square’s website allows online home shoppers to limit their options by filtering results by the number of bathrooms, bedrooms, square footage, garage spaces, stories, lot size, and price.

If you have a certain location in mind, or must consider commute distances, location may be an important criteria in your home purchase decision. If you can work from anywhere, you probably have more flexibility on your home’s location. When you can be flexible with your home’s location, you are likely to find more new construction homes that fit into your budget.

Pecan Square, located in Northlake, TX, which is around 30 minutes from downtown Fort Worth and 20 minutes from Denton, is an ideal community for folks who can work from anywhere. In fact, one of our most unique and popular amenities is our co-working space, which offers residents cozy nooks, internet access, private spaces, meeting rooms, a self-service convenience station, storage lockers, a copy room and more.

2 Bedroom Homes for Sale

Pecan Square’s Homefinder tool makes it easy to see which builders, features and styles are within your budget. If you’re browsing for two-bedroom homes for sale, you’ll find what you’re looking for at Pecan Square. Our community offers single-story, two-bedroom homes with two bathrooms, a two-car garage, and just over 1,500 square feet of living space.

Most of these homes feature the popular, open floor plan layout with the kitchen and family room open to each other.  Many of these smaller, bungalow style houses offer a bonus room for a home office, study or play area.  Like most at Pecan Square, our two-bedroom homes offer several exterior configurations.  Buyers can choose one of three designs that feature varying roof construction, front porch styles, and window placements along with different exterior materials such as stone, brick, or siding. While mixing siding materials is a popular exterior design trend, vinyl is considered to be one of the most affordable siding options available today.

3 Bedroom Homes for Sale

A majority of the new home designs available at Pecan Square feature 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms or more. Many of these new homes are constructed with brick, stone, stucco, siding, or a combination of these materials. Mixed materials are a popular home design trend and give a new home personality and character. Many homebuilders offer floor plans that can be further customized with add-on elements. Interior design selections often include fireplaces, freestanding bathtubs, standalone showers, and more.

4 Bedroom Homes for Sale

If you can consider one of the community’s larger homes, those with 4 bedrooms or more, you will have more options when it comes to home designs. Many of Pecan Square’s 4 bedroom homes have designs that echo the popular brick craftsman, modern farmhouse and colonial home styles. Most of their floor plans have two stories, with bedrooms or a game room/playroom on the second floor.

Most of the 4-bedroom and 5-bedroom homes at Pecan Square have brick exteriors, many with the added detail of stone accents. Architectural details such as arches, columns, wraparound front porches, and dormer windows create curb appeal. Many of these homes feature hip-style roofs which deliver additional benefits including vaulted ceilings, wind and water resistance.

New Single-Story Homes

Some buyers, particularly those with young children or mobility limitations, prefer single-story homes for their convenient access to all rooms without going up or down stairs.  One-story homes have other benefits as well. From doing laundry or to cleaning gutters to installing Christmas lights, single-story homes are easier to clean and maintain.

In addition to their convenience, homeowners like their modern layout: many single-story home designs include open floor plans. At Pecan Square, one-story homes start at under 400K.

Open Floor Plan Homes for Sale

Open concept living is still a preference for many homebuyers. Open floor plans were first featured in new construction homes in the 1970’s. This trend has become more popular thanks to HGTV shows that feature homeowners and home flippers tearing down walls to create an open concept living space on the first floor.  This design can be difficult to find in older, existing homes which typically have separate rooms for specific functions.

Of the 40,848 homes reported as sold in Fort Worth from 2020 – 2022 by Redfin, 4,245 of these homes included the keyword “open floor” and 7,722 included the keyword “open concept” in the listing description. Most real estate agents highlight open living concepts or open floor plans as a selling feature and this layout continues to be desired by many homeowners.

At Pecan Square, many of our new construction homes have floor plans that feature a living room, dining room and kitchen that flow together. Buying a home designed from the ground up with an open floor plan encourages conversation, makes for easy entertaining, and brings the family together.
