The annexed acreage will add about 1,400 homes to its master-planned community, as well as new amenities. Sales are expected to start in the fall of 2022, according to Jerry Ulke, Harvest Green’s general manager.
“Our farm-themed community has resonated with buyers looking for a more sustainable lifestyle,” Ulke said. “The past two years, Harvest Green has ranked among the nation’s 50 top-selling master-planned communities, and last year we sold nearly 500 new homes. Because of last year’s robust sales, builders had fewer than 100 homesites for all of 2021. This additional land will meet that obvious demand.”
The new section will offer many home styles and designs for homesites ranging from 40 to 70 square feet.
Although builders and pricing for the new section are yet to be determined, current Harvest Green builders include Coventry Homes, David Weekley Homes and Perry Homes, and homes are priced from the $300,000s.
The new amenities for the additional acres will include parks, trails, green space and a pool. Residents in the new section will still have access to existing Harvest Green amenities like the 12-acre Village Farm, which includes pens for goats and chickens, fields of produce, an orchard and a vineyard. Residents can join the Farm Club, where they have the opportunity to grow their own produce on a plot of the farm with the guidance of professional farmers. There’s also a farmer’s market on the third Saturday of every month. Additionally, Oyster Creek runs through the new section for about 1.7 miles.
