Silverton is perhaps best known for modest, older homes on quaint, tree-lined streets. But one of our favorite sections of this suburb is settled in its southwest corner, where Plainfield turns into Woodford Road and the Benken Home and Garden Center has lived quietly for years. Here, the streets are lined with larger, older houses on gracious lots. Now, it’s possible to find some new construction, too, thanks to a brand new cul-de-sac on Hedge Avenue.
The site was a vacant piece of property that had been privately owned for years, says this home’s listing agent Michael Jordan. It has since been divided into seven home sites, all of which include a 15-year property tax abatement. So far, two lots are sold and a third is sale pending, which leaves this and three other lots remaining.
This particular four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home was built by Ashford Homes and features an attached two-car garage, wood floors, an open floor plan, and granite counters in the kitchen. All told, this home would be a fantastic way to have your cake and eat it, too—living in new construction in an established neighborhood without breaking the bank. Another major plus? We’re pretty sure you could walk to the soon-to-open HighGrain Brewing Company on the corner of Plainfield and Montgomery roads in about 10 minutes. Score another point for Silverton as it adds “walkable neighborhood” to its list of desirable traits.
