Looking For New Construction In Chittenden County? Here Are Some of Our Favorite Projects:

We've supplied previous blogs that focus on new construction in the area, and specifically, what you should look for and expect when taking on a new construction home. Today, we'll focus on some of the more popular projects in the area. Each of these range in price, location, and amenities. We'll do our best to provide a synopsis of each, but feel free to give Brad a call or email him for information on each. We're always happy to help. South Burlington: Dorset Links. This is probably the newest neighborhood in South Burlington, and the homes are in the 2000+ Sqaure Foot range, and are priced in the low to mid $400's. Things we like are the good sized lots (.3 acres or so) and the fantastic location off Dorset St. As mentioned, this is a new project, so we are very curious to see how the lots are laid out, and the quality provided in the homes. Cider Mill. The Cider Mill in South Burlington has been a project that has been in construction for a few years now, and is making nice progress, even with the downturn in the economy back in 2008-2009. There are smaller footprint "carriage" style homes, and larger 3000 SF single family homes that offer larger lots. You can build either home now and in the future, and the project has many more lots available to build moving forward. You can build a 2700 SF home for roughly $480k, and there are some "resale" units (homes that were built for a previous original owner that are now on the market) that start in the low $400's. We like the great location off Dorset St, and the street layouts providing for a safe environment for the kids to play, or for a quiet walk with your family. South Village. South Village is a ambitious project on the line between South Burlington and Shelburne, located off Spear St in South Burlington. By "ambitious" we mean-- large, and forward thinking. Some unique characteristics of South Village are the HSA garden provided on site, the planned soccer fields, preserved land, walking trails, etc. The home will eventually consist of 200+ residences- an ambitious number for our "neck of the woods." South Village has been actively (and successfully) been marketing some beautiful homesites that abut the preserved land priced in the mid $400's. Homes are sized in the 2500 SF range. We really like the location, and amenities provided. It looks like they are providing green certified construction, which is a benefit as well. Essex Village Haven. This is a Dousevicz Real Estate project, so of course we love it! Village Haven will consist of 24 homes, 12 of which are constructed and occupied at this point. Square Footages range from just 850 feet with our "Champlain Cottage" and go to the low 2000 SF mark with our Arlington and Stratford models. Prices range from $250k, to the low $300's for our larger 3 BR home with additional space above the garage for a 4th BR, or storage space. If your looking for a single family home priced in $300k and below range- this is a great option. Conveniently located in the heart of Essex Junction within walking distance to schools and amenities. Dunbar/ Laurel Drive. If you're looking for an attached condo/ duplex style unit in the 2500+ SF and priced in the low to mid $300's- you've got a great option located at Dunbar and Laurel Drive. The duplexes on Dunbar are located in Essex Jct, while the Laurel Drive duplexes are located in the Essex Town area. Both have great open floor plans, and a good amount of Square Footage. Nature's Way. Nature's Way is the Pinewood's neighborhood latest addition. For some back ground, Pinewood is located in Essex Town, and was originally developed in the 70's, with more homes added throughout recent years. Consisting of roughly 39 homes priced in the mid $400's, you are sure to find a floor plan that works for you and your family. We love the location and eventual street layout and design of the neighborhood. High View Drive. The homes at High View Drive will offer larger lots than they "typical" new construction opportunity that range from 3-6 acres! Nice. You can build a 2500 SF home for the mid- $400's at this location in Essex. Williston Overlake View. There are a few lots to build on this neighborhood conveniently located in Williston. Priced in the mid $500's, for a 2800 Square foot home, Overlake is a great location for the discriminating buyer! We really like the location in Williston, and lot sizes.
