    Hi, what are the price ranges on these different styles of houses being built in Emerald Ridge Estates? Also what are the average lot sizes. Are there HOA dues? Do these houses have crawl spaces or basements of any kind? How soon can we walk through a finished model(s). Thanks, Mrs. Sherri R. Laird

    1. Lot sizes average 0.33-0.37 for most of the lots in Filing One. Each home is at least semi-custom to fully custom, which will directly affect the price of each home. Homes are required to be at least 1800 square feet with a 3 car garage, and we estimate that home prices will begin in the mid- to upper-$500,000’s.

      Some of the homes are on slabs, some have crawlspaces, and basements are certainly an option. Our designer is currently working on a floorplan with a basement.

      We hope to have our first model completed in mid-January, with the next few homes completing roughly once per month.

      You can contact Janet Elliott (250-0765) or Jennifer Andrews (985-9432) with New Horizons Development, Inc. to schedule a time to view any of the properties at Emerald Ridge and to discuss building a custom home.
