More homes being built in Parks of Aledo
The Parks of Aledo broke ground in October and 20 houses have been sold since February, said Justin Welborn, a partner in Harris Partners and managing partner of the development. The houses sold ranged from $290,000 to $525,000.
Parks of Aledo will eventually have 296 homes on 100 acres. The homebuilders include Village Homes, Bannister Custom Homes, Brass Key Custom Builders, Leatherwood Construction, Clarity Homes, and HD Homes.
Homes in the second phase are on larger lots and offer more amenities and scenic view of a creek and park areas. The developer said it added a 1.1-acre park surrounded by homesites.
Amenities will include two entryways featuring extensive landscaping, irrigated lawns, crushed limestone walking trails, and natural play structures. Curbside amenities will include parkways lined with shade trees, concrete sidewalks, antique street lights, mail boxes, and street signs.
Two, 15,000-pound limestone boulders from a quarry in Leuder will be placed near the Parks of Aledo entry monument. One boulder is 9-feet by 9-feet and the second, 7-feet by 9-feet.
