Town­home com­mu­nity breaks ground in Cov­ing­ton

The Covington News - - LOCAL - JACKIE GUTKNECHT jgutknecht@cov­news.com

Dirt is mov­ing on a 55-unit town­home com­mu­nity in New­ton County as a lo­cal de­vel­oper no­ticed a gap in the af­ford­able home mar­ket lo­cally.

Lo­cal De­vel­oper Kippy Clarke is lead­ing the charge on the town­home com­mu­nity named Town­home Es­tates, on South Dear­ing Street, in Cov­ing­ton.

Clarke said it is good tim­ing for this pro­ject be­cause the lo­cal econ­omy is mov­ing for­ward and the short sup­ply of housing in the area.

Clarke has part­nered with Tonya Bullard, owner of Pin­na­cle Real­tors, to be the real es­tate agent of choice on this pro­ject. Tonya can be reached for floor plans, pre-qual­i­fy­ing, price and mort­gage in­for­ma­tion at bullardtonya@ya­hoo.com or www. pin­na­cle­re­al­torsga.com.

Town­home Es­tate town­homes will in­clude brick and stone ac­cents, spa­cious rooms, 3 beds/3.5 baths, sep­a­rate din­ing rooms, gran­ite coun­ter­tops, hard­wood floors, stain­less steel appliances and more.

Bullard said the town­homes are each ap­prox­i­mately 1,700-square-feet and prices start at $164,900. The builder will pay all clos­ing costs with the pre­ferred lender.

Also in­cluded in the com­mu­nity will be golf cart paths, walk­ing trails, pav­il­ion and play area.

Clarke has also bro­ken ground across the street from the town­home site on a 55-an­dolder adult com­mu­nity, which will in­clude 75 se­nior cot­tages.

Clarke said these types of homes are good for the com­mu­nity as the town grows.

“We need to have more home choices to fit all of our life­styles,” he said.
