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.
