Blue Heron Meadow
New construction selling steadily at G½ and 26 Roads
It can be difficult to find a brand new home right now, especially if a homeowner wants to live in certain parts of town. In the north area, there aren’t a lot of active developments, which is why Ross Hennerman is happy to be closing on his new home in Blue Heron Meadow, off G 1/2 and 26 Road.
“I like the north area and I really liked the neighborhood,” Hennerman said. The lots are large at Blue Heron Meadow and the semi-custom and custom homes don’t feel crammed into the development.
Ebe Eslami with Dinosaur Enterprise, Inc. purchased the property in July 2003 and began selling lots a few years later, after his plan received approval from the city. He sold a few lots to individual homeowners who brought their own builders and also built one house before the economic slowdown hit in 2008.
By 2011, Eslami decided to build a home in the development to see if there was a market for new homes priced in the 300s. When that house sold, he started another one. He’s now on the fifth home in the development in the last year and a half.
“Every home has to fit the lot,” Eslami said. Although he has four basic plans, buyers are welcome to make changes and customization. Eslami will also change layouts and elevations so homes in the development don’t look identical.
Common features of all the homes in the development are three-car garages, ground-floor patios or upper story balconies, solid granite counters, lots of tile flooring and ceramic tile roofs. The master suites don’t just have a large bathroom and a walk-in closet, they usually have two walk-in closets for greater storage and help preserve marital harmony. All the homes are bright and airy.
“People like the open floor plan,” Eslami said. People also like the transom windows he often places above the already large windows to let even more light into the home. The 10-foot ceilings add to the spaciousness of the homes, which usually range from 2,700 square feet to 3,000 square feet or more.
Eslami newest available home at Blue Heron is currently in the framing stages. It will be a two-story home, with a family room and two bedrooms and a bath upstairs and two more bedrooms, as well as a great room, kitchen and formal dining room downstairs. The asking price for the 2,850-square foot home is $385,000. The home should be finished in time for the prospective buyers to celebrate Thanksgiving in their new home.
There is pressured irrigation water available to all the lots, and back yard fencing and front yard landscaping with underground sprinklers are all included. Although it can take as little as four and a half months to build a new home in the subdivision, delays from suppliers and other unforeseen hold-ups have caused most homes to be finished in five to six months.
There are 17 additional lots in the development and Eslami is not selling lots separately. He plans to be the exclusive builder in the subdivision.
