HOMEARAMA® 2022 Kickoff for ChimneyRidge in Loveland

The site for HOMEARAMA® 2022 is in Loveland near the Little Miami River and bike trail.
  • Who: Real estate agents, homebuilders, and HBA members
  • What: Informational networking event with coffee and baked goods served
  • When: Tuesday, March 16, 9-11 a.m..
  • Where: The Landing Event Center, 119 Karl Brown Way, Loveland

ChimneyRidge development in Loveland will be the site of next year’s HOMEARAMA® and this week kicks off the build up to the completion of some of the finest custom homes in Cincinnati. Always a well-attended and popular event drawing thousands of locals every year, HOMEARAMA® displays top-notch craftsmanship and the most innovative approaches to home design and home building in the country.

Included among the top homebuilders in Greater Cincinnati who have committed to build homes is Sibcy Cline’s builder partner, WP Land Company. 2022 will be WP Land Company’s second time to participate in the event. In 2019 they were part of the Kensington development of Mason.

“When ChimneyRidge was selected as the community for 2022, we were excited to jump in as we felt the location was a home run,” said Tim Mahoney II of WP Land Company and Executive Sales Vice President with Sibcy Cline.

“Today’s buyers are always looking for opportunities to be close to amenities, but still crave a sense of privacy and space to retreat to,” Tim said. “Marrying those two can be challenging, which is what makes ChimneyRidge such a unique opportunity.”

Right next to Downtown Loveland sits Nisbet Park, a popular gathering place for visitors and residents while dining, shopping, and enjoying the river and bike path that run through downtown.

Due to the popularity and desirability of the Loveland area and low housing inventory in the market as a whole, Tim knows that new construction is a welcome option for many future homebuyers. “There are also six additional lots in the community we’d be happy to secure for interested buyers, so we’re really looking at 15 opportunities for a custom home by WP Land Company in the ChimneyRidge community,” he said.

Tim’s not alone in his belief that the ChimneyRidge development is an attractive site for homes. Sibcy Cline REALTOR® Andrea Lucke DeStefano agrees. Andrea, who is the listing agent for lot #11, the site for a custom-built home by Robert Lucke Homes, Inc, listed off the many features of the development that buyers want, like the charming gas street lights, a small community with only 30 home sites, and wooded/private lots. “It feels like you’re in the country, but so close to everything,” she said.

Downtown Loveland is a short commute to Cincinnati by bike, bus, or car.

ChimneyRidge sits high on 26 wooded acres off of Butterworth Road, less than one mile from the Downtown Loveland and the Little Miami bike trail. It also offers easy access to I-275. Homeowners who build with HOMEARAMA® builders for the 2022 event at ChimneyRidge save thousands on expensive upgrades for homes outfitted with the newest innovations in custom homebuilding.

Cincinnati Citirama 2019 is September 7–15, 2019 at Springrose Meadows in Springdale

 

Springrose CitiramaSpringrose Meadows is the site of the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati’s Citirama 2019. The home show is scheduled from September 7–15, 2019. This subdivision is located near Kemper Road and Rose Lane in Springdale.

The home show is featuring five new homes with varying architecture priced from $300,000. There will also be a “demonstration” home where visitors can learn about new construction materials and products.

Springrose Meadows has availability for 50 single-family homes. All homes are eligible for a tax abatement: Per HBA: “Instead of paying standard property taxes on your structure you will just pay a yearly fixed assessment of $4,950 per year, and will not be effective until 2021. Homeowners are still required to pay the typical property tax on the value of their lot. The abatement will begin once the homeowner completes and submits the appropriate application with the City of Springdale tax department. The abatement is automatic and granted upon application. Homeowners will benefit by having their property taxes fixed on their home structure for 15 years, even when their structure appreciates in value the tax on the structure will not change. After 15 years the bond assessment will end and homeowners will begin paying standard real estate taxes on both the lot and the home. Springrose Meadows will also have a Homeowners Association (HOA) with a yearly fee of $300. The HOA is responsible for all the Springrose common areas.”

All homes in the Woodlawn Meadows, will be part of a “Special Assessment District.”  This district will have a 15-year tax abatement on all improvements.  The “Special Assessment” is estimated to be 50% of the regular taxes on a $200,000 improvement (per home).  Payments will be due after the bonds are placed (Sold).  This is only an estimate and is subject to change or evaluation. Find out how you can take advantage of this great way to buy a new home by contacting one of this year’s CiTiRAMA® builders  at http://www.cincybuilders.com/citiramareg.html.  The program is available on all 43 lots in the community.

Tickets for the home show will be $12.00 Advance tickets will be available from Krogers for $10 or online with the Home Builders Association.

Home Show Hours:
Monday – Thursday: 4pm–9pm
Friday–Sunday: 12pm–9pm

Hampstead Park in Mariemont Celebrates with a Topping-Out Ceremony

Hampstead Park, a new condominium development in Mariemont (Cincinnati, Ohio), celebrated the completion of the building’s framing with a “topping out” ceremony. This Scandanavian tradition dates back to 700AD when a fir tree was placed on top of a completed framing to bless the building and give thanks for nature’s materials. The ceremony was held on May 29, 2018 and included words of appreciation shared with all tradesmen involved with the project.

Hampstead Park rendering
The new Hampstead Park building is taking shape now that framing has been completed. The luxury condominiums will offer two- and three-bedroom plans as well as a study. Residences will have two assigned parking spaces and a storage locker in the garage. An elevator will service all three levels. The main-floor lobby will have a living area with fireplace that extends into a covered front porch.

The English-cottage inspired facade of the building will fit in well with nearby Mariemont homes. In the final phase of construction, half of the 18 condominiums have already been pre-sold. Patti Sibcy and Elaine Greiwe of Sibcy Cline Kenwood are selling the condominiums.

Hampstead Park is located one block from the village square. Residents will easily be able to walk and enjoy dining, shopping, ice cream at Graeter’s or a movie at the Mariemont Theatre.

This is the fifth Mariemont condominium development for Greiwe Development, North American Properties and Sibcy Cline Realtors. Other projects include: Jordan Park, Emery Park, Nolen Park and Livingood Park. (2770 Observatory is another lifestyle condominium building located in Hyde Park.)

Prospective home buyers can visit the nearby Livingood Park residences by appointment to appreciate the craftsmanship and value that Hampstead Park will bring.
