Construction crews have recently started work on the future site of the Foxfield Meadows development. Bill Darden of Hearndon Construction said about 128 homes are planned, with a few more at the back of the neighboring Westhaven Lakes neighborhood.
Earth has been moved for a new housing development off Pitchkettle Road.
Construction equipment is on the site of the future Foxfield Meadows development, between the Westhaven Lakes community and the Route 58 bypass. It’s ultimately planned to include 128 homes as well as an additional 35 added onto the back of Westhaven Lakes.
“We just started work, so we’ve got a ways to go,” said Bill Darden, executive vice president of Hearndon Construction.
Darden said the company hopes to start building a model home in late summer or early fall and open sales in the first part of 2016. Homes would sell between $260,000 and $325,000, Darden anticipates. They start at 2,000 square feet and go to a little more than 3,000.
The first phase of building includes 78 home sites, with 50 coming later. Darden said he’s not sure of the timing for the 35 homes at the back of Westhaven Lakes.
“Those probably would be bigger and more expensive than the initial phases,” he said.
