Wexford, Pennsylvania Named A “Perfect Suburb” By CNBC

 

Wexford

Wexford, PA has been named one of CNBC’s most “perfect” suburbs in the nation.

According to a recent article from CNBC, Wexford is one of 10 perfect suburbs in the United States, for reasons such as a 7.0% metro unemployment rate, a median house value of $345,578, and a higher safety rating in the top 35% of all U.S. communities, not to mention a high value on education, and access to great schools.

CNBC states, “Wexford is a mostly white-collar small city with lots of new housing and urban sophisticates (educated, wealthy, avid readers, well-traveled, supporters of the arts). It has better public schools than 96% of all U.S. communities, and its public schools are better than 99% of schools in the rest of the state. The majority of Wexford’s populace holds a four-year degree (58.3%), and a majority are homeowners (82.6%). Further analysis of the suburb is found on its Neighborhood Scout profile.”

Paragon Homes offers housing in the Wexford area. One of our new home communities, Venango Trails, is a great place to live, if you are looking to move to Wexford. Paragon believes that, for someplace to feel like home it first has to look like home. At Venango Trails, the homes are both artistic and historic, without sacrificing modern conveniences. For example, eery home is high-performance, completely wired, and eco-and-earth-friendly with energy-saving materials and technologies to complement the land around which it has been built. In fact, Venango Trails is conserving ponds, green space, and acres of forest with historic Native American Indian trails. So, now you can commune with nature while always being just a short commute from Wexford and Cranberry Township!

Perfect homes in a perfect suburb: sounds good to us!

Fast-selling Walker’s Ridge community site of the best new homes in Collier

One of the finest custom home builders in Pittsburgh, Paragon Homes, has done it again.  The beautiful Walker’s Ridge community in Collier Township is half sold out after only being paved late last year. After the extraordinary response to initial community, Walker’s Ridge II was developed which features just 9 new cul-de-sac lots with large back yards in an unbeatable location minutes to I-79, Washington Pike and the Mall at Robinson.

Why is this cul-de-sac so popular? You just have not been able to find lots like this from custom builders in Collier, Robinson or South Fayette for several years says Steve Fink of Paragon. A short little cul-de-sac where people can build something unique has really been in demand for this price range.

The homes themselves in the Walker’s Ridge community are not your typical development where every home looks identical to the next, the cul-de-sac features unique brick homes that are each built the to the unique specifications of their new owners both outside and in.

Building a luxury home with Paragon Homes is designed to be an easy and enjoyable experience.  They put a lot of thought into creating a client friendly building process that provides a true custom home building experience while still being uncomplicated and cost effective.

Situated in over 25 acres of scenic property in Collier Township the Walker’s Ridge community is also in the perfect location.  Located next to Nevillewood, you are only a short drive from Pittsburgh via I-79 and the Parkway just minutes away. Having a new home in Collier gives you the best of both worlds – privacy at your home and the ability to be downtown in “The Most Livable City” in just 15 minutes.

If you are interested in learning more we invite you to contact Paragon Homes, the premiere builder of new home communities in Pittsburgh. The sky is truly the limit when it comes to what they can do with homes, so get in touch to find out how quickly you can start on the home of your dreams. Visit the Walker’s Ridge community website, everyone at Paragon looks forward to speaking with you soon!

Paragon Homes has been building new homes in the Pittsburgh area for over 25 years. In that time they have come to be recognized as one of the premier custom home builders in Western Pa. In fact they have been honored to receive over 25 Housing Excellence Awards from the Builders and Realtors Associations of Metropolitan Pittsburgh and the Washington County Builders Association including several for New Custom Home of the Year designations.

Picky Pittsburgh Home Buyers LOVE Paragon Homes

No matter the budget – whether it be $300,000 or $2,000,000 – people are very specific about how they want their new home to look and feel. Paragon’s philosophy is quite simple: build the home of customer’s dreams so that they can walk away happy, regardless of how much they are spending. Homes are built to the unique tastes of each individual customer.

Details such as counter space, storage space, building materials and finishes (such as faucets) can be all be customized based on the customer’s requests. Most importantly, the quality of the materials used will be extremely high and incomparable what the competition has to offer. Our motto is “custom homes of unparalleled excellence” after all!

A great place to build a new custom home is in the Walker’s Ridge new home community.  We have only 9 cul-de-sac lots left. Situated on over 25 acres adjacent to Nevillewood in Collier Township, Walker’s Ridge offers scenic views, large wooded backyards and private home sites. Located in Chartiers Valley School District and minutes from I-79 this community is convenient to Downtown Pittsburgh, restaurants and shopping.
