This Monday, just in time for Christmas, Megill Homes broke ground on a brand new project coming to the West Chester Area. Black Bell Farm features 14 single family homes in the award winning West Chester School District.
Black Bell Farm is situated on a private cul-de-sac street with public water, sewer, and natural gas. Designed with land conservation in mind – all lots back to protected open space. 13 acres were also deeded to Thornbury Township in order to expand the adjacent Thornbury Park. The new owners at Black Bell Farm will have easy access to that recreation while enjoying the protected beautiful vistas.
“The interest generated by Black Bell Farm since our sign went up has been tremendous”, according to Sales Agent Alma Severoni of Keller Williams Brandywine Valley.
Unique projects like Black Bell Farm are what Megill Homes prides itself on in their 45 plus years of local area homebuilding. “Today’s homebuyers are sophisticated” stated Scott Megill one of the company’s owners. “They understand the value of intelligent land planning, coupled with homes that are well designed, and appointed and then built by quality local craftsmen – not publicly traded conglomerates.”
Financed locally by DNB Bank in West Chester, site work is underway with decorated models expected to be available by late spring, and delivery of the first sales by Spring of 2018
The homes at Black Bell Farm range in square feet from 2,876 to just over 3,900, and all of the homes include standard features like enlarged two-car garages, 9-foot ceilings on the 1st and 2nd floors, gourmet granite kitchens with Energy-Star appliances, sodded front and side yard, brick paver driveways, first or second floor master bedroom suites, and attractive stone and vinyl exteriors. “We are excited about these new home plans” says Scott Megill, “they really capture the latest trends in design and create an amazing template for us to take and customize the home to meet our client’s needs. Standards surpassing what the big builders offer combined with personalized attention, and the ability to customize for every buyer has been and will continue to be our mission. We are excited to start meeting with Buyers over the next few weeks.”
Wayne C. Megill, Jr., the other owner of the company, commented that “the old real estate adage of location, location, location should make Black Bell Farm a fast selling community for us and a really safe bet for the buyers concerned about resale value down the road. Homes that feed into Rustin High School was a big factor in our preliminary market research, and I don’t expect that trend to change any time soon,” he continued.
The location is prime, with extremely convenient nearby shopping, as well as easy access to all regional commuter routes to Chester and Delaware County employment hubs, Center City, and the airport.
