Estates at Harrison Crossing Come to Life
The signs and streets have been in place for years, but this spring The Estates at Harrison Crossing sprang to life. New homes are quickly transforming the Peterman Road neighborhood. As you enter the neighborhood, the street winds into the tree lined community. Center Grove resident, and market manager for Drees Homes, Jane Folds, says “It’s exciting to be part of a new upscale community in the northern part of the Center Grove area.”
Drees Homes, an 85-year-old family-owned homebuilder that has been building in Indianapolis since 2001, started building homes in The Estates at Harrison Crossing this year. Most of the homes are tucked away from Peterman. Many offer residents a wooded area along the back of their yard where deer frequently step out to see what is going on.
While much of Center Grove’s new development is in the southern part of the township, The Estates at Harrison Crossing provides an opportunity to live in a neighborhood that is closer to Indianapolis. One area resident commented, “You can actually get to downtown Indy without having to hit all the stoplights on 135.” The neighborhood is within walking distance of Sugar Grove Elementary School. Kids will attend Sugar Grove Elementary, Center Grove Middle School North, and Center Grove High School.
When you tour the model, or one of three move-in ready homes, the natural light that fills every room will impress you. Drees’ experience with building homes shows itself in the distinctive designs outside and inside the homes. Choose from 14 floor plans, each with multiple elevations. The homes offer “Low E” windows and energy-efficient heating and cooling can save you up to 40 percent compared to your current home.
Prices start at $320,000 and top out in the mid-$400,000’s. Options include three or four bedroom ranch homes and two-story homes with up to six bedrooms. Kristie Webber of Drees says their designs “include more integrated living spaces, rooms that flow together, outdoor living areas, spa like master baths with walk-in showers and gourmet kitchens.” Interior plans offer flex space, and even an optional full bath in a fifth bedroom. Exterior finish options include, brick, stone and Hardie-Plank, for low maintenance, real wood look. The many choices at the design center allow you to customize the exterior of your new home.
“The total experience, making it easy, from choosing a floor plan to customizing your home, is something that I am committed to and Drees makes possible,” says Folds. After receiving the architect’s plans for your home, it is off to the state of the art Drees Homes Design Center. Two design consultants are available to help you find the finishes you desire such as granite, quartz, hardwoods, and all the customizations that will make the home truly yours. In addition, you will be able to see vignettes of kitchens, baths, and other rooms to help you tailor the home to fit your lifestyle.
Choosing a homebuilder can be a difficult decision. Drees’ reputation will instill confidence. 98 percent of their customers would recommend them to a friend. They are also the only area builder to receive the homebuilding industry’s “Triple Crown” – National Builder of the Year, National Housing Quality Award, and America’s Best Builder. This year, the most trusted builders in the nation list included Drees Homes.
If you are looking for a new home in Center Grove, you will want to visit The Estates at Harrison Crossing. With its variety of homes, customization possibilities, and great location, it is worth a drive to see the possibilities. One of those possibilities includes having a home built on your own land. Drees offers “Design Gallery Homes by Drees” which allow you to build a Drees home most anywhere, your own property out away from everything, or in another neighborhood.
