Graduation isn’t just for students; it can be a lifestyle milestone for homebuyers too. At West Point Gardens, renters can purchase their first homes for surprisingly affordable prices and buyers who want to move up to a larger, more luxurious home can be a new home graduate too.
Award-winning West Point Gardens has become popular for its Traditional Neighborhood Design that provides an inviting atmosphere like that of the small towns of yesteryear. The master-planned community boasts winding streets, small parks and greenways, large front porches and wide sidewalks for strolling. Most of the homes have garages in the rear.
“Because of the large number of home designs and prices we offer at West Point Gardens, the community has been very popular with everyone from first-time buyers to those who purchase our largest, most deluxe homes,” said Pat Curran, president of West Point Builders and developer of West Point Gardens. “With four series of homes, homebuyers can graduate to the home design and price that most ideally suits their needs. They can even move within the community if their housing needs change over the years. This is a great place to put down roots.”
