The Independence neighborhood is being developed by Scott Felder Homes, which recently bought the property from Newmark Homes. Development, which began in 2007, will continue till the remaining 110 homes (of 233 total through mid-August 2009) have been built and sold.
Homes in Independence are built with a "throwback" or classic style. Instead of wooden siding exteriors, however, these homes are built with long-lasting Hardiplank-type concrete board. The homes are painted in a various pastel colors. Inside, these 1- and 2-story homes are thoroughly modern with granite counters, lots of energy efficiency features and much, much more. The six models of homes available (each with elevation variations) range in size from 1,260-2,245 sq. ft. Base prices, which include the multiple standard features, range from $227k to $254k.
The Independence community is set in a wooded area. The many trees, distinctive home styles and water fountain at the entrance add to its visual appeal. The neighborhood has a long walking/running trail and wide streets.
