The rendering shown for the Claremont model is incorrect: the garage is shown adjacent to the bedroom wing where it should be at the opposite side of the house adjacent to the Living Room.  This error was common for awhile--though typically in newspaper ads, not the brochure--particularly for communities in other states, like Northview Estates and Northampton Estates in Maryland and Arbor Meadows and Ivy Meadows in New Jersey.  (A better quality--and correctly depicted--rendering and floor plan for the Claremont model can be viewed at the Ivy Meadows community page, where this model is known as House A.)
