• Status: Of 84 total lots, 14 townhomes have been built and four are under construction. Builders are preparing to begin work on two more, and 11 homes are occupied.

Optional judge's panels, Cheyenne doors and upgraded fixtures give homeowners even more flexibility.

• Amenities: The townhomes are wired for security with optional surround sound and a choice of paint. Custom wood cabinets come with a lifetime warranty, and homeowners have access to a pool with restrooms. Low-emission windows and spray foam insulation keep HVAC costs down.
