The Westfield City Council heard a presentation from Drees Homes Division President Randy McNutt regarding the new Belle Crest Planned Unit Development, a 20-acre active adult community northwest of Shady Nook Road and 186th Street.
McNutt said there’s not much for the active adult buyer to the east of U.S. 31.
“There’s a segment of the population doesn’t want to be a part of a large, master-planned community,” McNutt said. “A segment of the population wants something a little smaller, a little more quaint, a little quieter. They also don’t need and want to pay for a million-dollar clubhouse, pools and a lot of the amenities that drive up the HOA fees. It’s just not something they value and need. This buyer isn’t even here half the year and maybe has a second home somewhere else. East of 31, other than Lindley Run, there’s not anything for this buyer.”
The development would include 42 structures consisting of two paired ranch homes each. The homes have the capacity to be a story-and-a-half and include a bonus room or another bedroom upstairs.
The price point for the proposed homes is $275,000 to $350,000. The homes would be ideal for empty nesters.
Since the proposal was introduced to the council, no vote was taken. For more, visit westfield.in.gov.
