The Cincinnati Business Courier reports that Drees Homes is developing its first exclusive agriculturally based community--sort of. While the development will feature community gardens, it will lack a working farm.
Elliott Farm, a 100-acre community in Deerfield Township, will be a 200-home neighborhood with community gardens as a central amenity. It also will feature walking trails, a pool, parks, a fishing lake and additional amenities for residents.
Ray Neverovich, president of Drees Homes’ Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky division, said work has already started on a model home at Elliott Farm. Seven of the homesites have been sold and three more sites are on hold.
“Our pre-sales are doing fantastic,” Neverovich told me. “This is a Drees flagship community.”
Drees purchased more than 41 acres from the Elliott family this summer for $2.5 million.
