West Des Moines, IA (September 3, 2014) – Hubbell Realty Company is bringing 52 single-family homes to the heart of West Des Moines with the development of a new residential community. Pemberley Hills is located south of Ashworth Road and west of 60th Street and will be the first residential community built entirely by Hubbell Homes. Development of the land, purchased from the Barnes family, will begin at the end of August. 
“We are very excited to get started on this unique project that offers new homes in a prime location of West Des Moines,” said Rachel Flint, Vice President of Hubbell Homes. “Pemberley Hills is centrally located and will provide homeowners convenience and comfort that is unmatched in the area.”
The Pemberley Hills name connects the Barnes family heritage with Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.” The West Des Moines property has been passed down through the Barnes family, whose ancestors settled in Iowa by way of Derbyshire, England. Pemberley, Mr. Darcy’s country estate in Austen’s novel, is located within Derbyshire County. A street in the community will also be named Florence after Florence Mildred Aldrich, daughter of the property’s original owner and great-grandmother of the Barnes family.
The first phase of the Pemberley Hills development will consist of 41 single-family homes, while phase two will consist of 11 single-family homes. The community will feature floor plans from past Hubbell Homes home show models, and homes will start in the $400,000s. Dan Rivenburgh and Eric Quiner of Iowa Realty will list homes in Pemberley Hills upon their completion.
