Southern Land Company, LLC, master developer of Black Creek Mountain, announced the ground breaking of The Ridges, the newest enclave in Black Creek Mountain.
The Ridges will feature 95 new homesites at the foot of Aetna Mountain. Southern Land Company is developing approximately 18 acres of the 62 total acres. Staying true to Southern Land’s philosophy to create communities that complement the natural landscape, The Ridges will be comprised of approximately 70% natural green space.
“The design of The Ridges focuses on the natural elements of the land and will complement the overall Black Creek Community. We are excited to announce the land development is underway and homesites are scheduled to be delivered in stages starting in the third and fourth quarters of this year,” said Tim Downey, CEO Southern Land Company.
The selection of single family homes will be both alley and front entry garage homes with timeless architecture. Furthermore, they will range from 1,500 square feet to 3,000 square feet and start in the low $200’s to the upper $300’s. All homes will have amazing views of Raccoon, Aetna and Lookout Mountains and will be surrounded by beautiful wooded landscaping. The announcement of the builders and floor plans will be coming soon.
Southern Land Company has contracted a local developer, Stein Construction Company, for the land development. Doug Stein, the president and fourth-generation owner of Stein Construction, has personally been involved in Black Creek Mountain since the beginning. “We have started building the infrastructure and construction is moving along well. I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with Southern Land and Tim Downey again, and pleased to see Black Creek continuing its growth. The Ridges will be a great new addition to the Black Creek community,” said Mr. Stein.
