Hubbell Continues Work at Village on the Ridge at Echo Valley

WEST DES MOINES, IOWA (November 17, 2016) – Hubbell Realty Company and Hubbell Homes recently began work on a 34 villa home community in the growing city of Norwalk, named Village on the Ridge.

Norwalk, a growing community, continues to see strong growth and interest in both the single family market and apartment living options. Even among cities in Iowa, Norwalk stands out. In 2014, Movoto named Norwalk the No. 6 best place to live in Iowa and last year, Nerdwallet placed the city eighth in its list of best places in Iowa for young families.

The first neighborhood where homes are being constructed is at Village on the Ridge at Echo Valley. There are currently five villa homes under construction with more planned to begin early next year. There are 34 lots designated for villa-style homes set along the eighth hole of the award winning 27-hole golf course at Echo Valley.

The rolling hills of the course serve as a magnificent backdrop for the new neighborhood. The villas bring homes with 1,300 to 1,900 square feet and prices ranging from $315,000 to $450,000. Additionally, the villas have custom options available to home buyers looking to move into a new home. The lots were purchased from Echo Valley.

Joe Pietruszynski, vice president, land development for Hubbell said of the draw of living in villa-style homes, “Villas offer everything a typical single family home would have; everything from large bedrooms and spacious kitchens, with the added benefit of lawn care and snow removal.”

Once complete, Village on the Ridge is calculated to add $13 million in overall tax base to the Norwalk community.
