Blackburn Heights

New homes in Blackburn Heights to include many popular features

We all have an idea of our perfect dream home. For some of us, a cozy bungalow in a tightly-knit neighborhood is the epitome of the American dream. For others, a remote location with acres of land with no one in site is ideal. For many, the answer is balance. Not too close to town, not too far away from it. Not too much land, but not too little.

For those individuals, our upcoming Blackburn Heights community will provide plenty of options. The neighborhood is uniquely situated in two distinct areas, Ohio Township and Franklin Park. Each offers its own school district, Avonworth and North Allegheny School Districts, respectively. Read More→

Peachmont Farms

Residents of Peachmont Farms will have dozens of customizing amenities to choose from.

Low and behold, only one week remains until the anticipated grand opening of our new Peachmont Farms community! The event will be held on Saturday, August 29 at our Kingsridge model home located at 102 Olivia Avenue in Mars, PA.  Peachmont Farms will offer Butler County’s most affordable custom homes in a tranquil, country-like setting. Despite its peaceful backdrop, this new community is located just 15 minutes from Cranberry Township’s best shopping like Cranberry Commons and is just a stone’s throw from Routes 8 and 228.

What makes this neighborhood so different from the rest is that it combines the best of both Allegheny and Butler Counties. Because it is mere minutes from Mars, PA and Route 228, those living in Peachmont Farms will have the same convenience and accessibility to the area’s largest employers and most traveled roadways like I-79 and I-76, just like their Allegheny County counterparts. However, the affordability offered in Butler County, combined with low county taxes, offers a much more attainable price point than nearby Wexford and Pine-Richland communities. The lower taxes and lower prices afford anyone considering building a custom home substantially more bang for their buck without sacrificing.  In fact, custom homes start from the low $300,000s, and house hunters are able to choose from one and two-story homes.

Waverly Manor

Site Plan for Waverly Manor

Thanks to everyone who participated in the grand opening of our newest community, Waverly Manor! Located in Robinson Township, minutes from I-79, and easily accessible from I-376 for those commuting to downtown Pittsburgh or to many of Pittsburgh’s large corporations that are situated close by, the opening was a huge success.

The estate community features a private enclave of spacious home sites ranging in size from a half-acre to four acres. The most striking aspect about this community is the unique nature of the neighborhood layout itself. The private enclave features wooded home sites and sweeping views. What’s more, it offers an incredible location that is in the heart of Robinson Township and just around the corner from the area’s most popular dining and shopping destinations, including the Robinson Town Center which is just two miles away and only five minutes by car.

Foxmoor Family RoomA growing trend among home buyers these days is the need for a first floor owner’s suite. What used to be a 55-plus community feature is now trickling down to all segments of the market, whether it be suitable for a first time buyer, single professional or even families who prefer to have a friendly spot for guests and grandparents.

This Saturday and Sunday, June 20 and June 21, anyone thinking of purchasing a luxurious home with a first floor master won’t want to miss the grand Foxmoor Kitchenopening of this popular floor plan.
