Village townhomes almost complete

November 26th, 2008 · 11 Comments

Its not easy selling real estate these days but the two Windermere agents repesenting the new Carleton Park townhomes in The Village say they are confident they will find the right buyers for the homes that start at $1.2 million.

The homes are nearing completion and they expect to have an open house on January 15th. That’s also when they will begin full scale marketing efforts.  Magnolia Voice got a first look inside.

So far only one townhome is spoken for, by the man who sold the former parking lot to the developer, Magnolia resident Tim McHugh. While the agents, Dave Medina and Gregory Walker, admit that the economic uncertainty makes this a challenging time to sell these townhomes, they believe that the right buyers will fall in love with the location and amenities. They hope to sell one townhome each month starting in January.

Each home has a two car garage, an elevator that serves the three story home, an entry level home office space, a central vacuam system and a security system. The finishes in the townhomes are luxurious with two fireplaces, travertine flooring, Brazilian hardwood and top of the line kitchen appliances including custom cabinetry. There are two decks and the homes range in size from 2,500 to 3,000 square feet.

The agents say that landscaping will begin soon and the appearance of the townhomes will be softened by the trees and bushes going into the site.

    They’re still fugly. I hope those trees grow as tall as the townhouses and enough are planted to completely block the site of them.

    I certainly agree about the fugly part.To me, it doesn’t look like they left enough planting areas around them to have ANY trees.

  • Not cranky

    Me three, on the fugly. And the beautiful view of Bartells. Good luck getting 1.2 mil. (and up!)

  • Really?

    Fugly…really…I think it’s a huge improvement over the old rvs, junky cars, pond, gravel pit, dumpsters, bags of garbage, and litter that were there before.
    I’m guessing you’re the same people that complained about the area before the improvements. Stop complaining and see the silver lining people!

    Before you could only see the parking lot (which I didn’t think was particularly ugly anyhow) if you were next to it. Now you can see the fugly townhouses from quite a distance.
    And being ugly as a parking lot doesn’t excuse replacing it with really big ugly townhouses. Some developers manage to make attractive ones, especially if they want to sell them at absurd asking prices.

  • Really?

    Spilt milk people…spilt milk.

  • Really Really?

    Are you REALLY using the word really in the way it is used on SNL weekend update? That is REALLY lame! Almost as lame as those sickening townhouses you love so much! Good luck selling them……

  • Developers R Greedy+Stupid!

    Those townhomes are so out of scale with the
    village that they stand out like an ugly sore thumb. They look like a public housing project

  • Really?
