New Homes Begin In Hampton Creek

Thursday, July 17, 2014

RiverBirch Homes and Waters-Holland Builders, two award-winning home builders in Tennessee, have recently purchased the remaining residential lots in Hampton Creek from the previous owner, Hampton Creek Investments. The builders are looking to complete the community with beautiful, high-quality homes, while remaining sensitive to a wide array of budgets, said officials. In keeping with the initial design of the community, several product types will be available.  Therefore, new homes will range from the mid $200s to $800s.  

Hampton Creek residents will have access to tennis courts, a junior Olympic-sized swimming pool, 18-hole golf course and restaurant in their backyards. In addition to resort-style amenities, Hampton Creek offers homebuyers a gated, family-oriented neighborhood in the heart of Ooltewah. 

Located 25 minutes from downtown Chattanooga and 20 minutes from Cleveland, Ooltewah is experiencing both residential and commercial real estate growth. Interest in Ooltewah has recently been attributed to the influx of new jobs offered by Volkswagen and Amazon, but local residents have since enjoyed the area’s family-friendliness, proximity to Chickamauga Lake, low property taxes and solid public schools. The brand-new $21 million Ooltewah Elementary, which will begin its second school year in a few weeks, is located two miles from Hampton Creek.

“We just want to build and sell quality homes for families of all sizes," explained Reggie Garner, founder of RiverBirch Homes. “We feel like Hampton Creek is an exceptional choice for homebuyers seeking resort-style amenities within a family-friendly community like Ooltewah.”    

Both Waters-Holland Builders and RiverBirch Homes have several custom pre-sells ranging from $500,000 to $600,000 already in the works with plans to begin speculative homes within the next few weeks. For those that are interested, contact Becky Cope English, broker/realtor with Re/Max Renaissance Realtors. Ms. English has specialized in new home sales since 2001 and represents both builders in Hampton Creek.

Don't Clog Up The Last Remaining Semi-Unobstructed Route Into Town From North Of The River

The proposal to turn Hixson Pike in Riverview into a more pedestrian friendly street is more than absurd.   Let's be honest. This is the last semi-unobstructed route into town from north of the river, due to I-27 construction and the bike lane/parking lot that is North Market Street.  So, now the businesses in Riverview would like parking on this main artery? ...

Roy Exum: New Orleans Slaps History

It was balmy and relatively quiet on Sunday afternoon in New Orleans.

Shortly after 1 a.m. yesterday morning, a number of large trucks rumbled past ... (click for more)
