There’s nothing like buying a newly-constructed home. You get to choose the lot and, if you get in early enough you may even have first dibs. Then, you’ll choose your options and watch as the home takes shape.
Moving in is a dream – no icky grease in the kitchen, no pet or kid odors, no dirty carpets – everything is brand new.
Right now, in Blaine, you can choose from among 70 lots at Weston Woods at Rice Creek, the new townhome development being built on the former 37-acre Katehaven Golf Course.
These will be considered luxury townhomes, with high-end features throughout. It’s the location, however, that will help these homes hold their value – they’re situated around a tributary of Rice Creek and three ponds.
Mark of Excellence Homes is the builder/developer and originally claimed the homes would be priced from $375,000 to $450,000. Of the two homes available so far, however, one is priced at more than $500,000.
Currently there is only one model to view and it’s open only on Sundays. The first phase includes lots 1 through 18 in block 1 (on the eastern edge of the development where most back to wetlands), and lots 1 through 26, block 2, where most homes face the ponds.
The children of Weston Woods at Rice Creek will attend schools administered by the Centennial School District.
