Some Groundbreaking PR: Breaking Ground at Deerfield Ridge in South Fayette

 

SOUTH FAYETTE TOWNSHIP, Pa., August, 2013 /PRNewswire — Paragon Homes Inc., one of Pittsburgh’s own elite-custom home builders, held a ground breaking for their new model home, a 2833 square foot home (plus a Finished Walk-Out Basement!) set on a charming cul-de-sac road just down Old Oakdale Road from the South Fayette School District campus.  Deerfield Ridge features just 23 lots for new custom homes on a single cul-da-sac with a view like no other Road in the South Hills.  The prices are starting in the low $400’s to the $900’s plus and already include many features in their starting prices that you would have to pay extra for elsewhere.

The model home has been designed to appeal to the needs of today’s home buyers with features like the spacious kitchen and great room with plenty of space for friends and family to gather, a three car garage, large back yard, 2nd floor laundry as well as a study/flex room on the main level. The model is expected to be listed for sale at $499,900.  It’s a very traditional home for Pittsburgh with a Paragon Homes touch. You will notice the difference at the front door whether you walk in during or after construction.  When you can see behind the walls, you will notice the old world craftsmanship that is still present in Paragon’s new homes.  From solid framing that puts a premium on standing the test of time to insulation and other energy efficient features that exceed ENERGYSTAR requirements, you can tell a Paragon custom home is different.

If you liked the homes Paragon has built in Nevillewood, Peters and Upper St Clair you will like what they are bringing to Deerfield Ridge. It’s been a long time since Paragon has had a community to build homes in South Fayette.  Bill Fink, Paragon’s founder is thrilled to be back in South Fayette.  “Since the original phases of Hickory Heights almost 20 years ago we have built on several scattered lots for clients, but we have not had access to a community of lots to offer to our clients.  I’m thrilled to have lots in Deerfield where custom builders can offer clients new homes with big back yards and a three minute drive to one of Pittsburgh’s best school districts.”

Being a custom builder, Paragon Homes can offer clients a home that is designed around what they want.  “Clients can bring their ideas, we can modify a floor plan for them or help them design something completely unique.  If you want a simple plan with no wasted spaces and 4 car garage, no problem.  If you want a plan with four formal rooms, a wine cellar and a library, no problem.

Paragon Homes has been building truly custom homes for over 25 years.  They are a small builder and can simply spend more time with their clients than other builders can.  By keeping the number of homes they build a year low, they can offer a small boutique feel with more customer service and attention to your home than other builders.  You can regularly find the officers of the company in jeans out checking on each home.

All Paragon Homes carry a 10 year structural warranty and a 1 year fit and finish, but what sets them apart is their attitude towards service.  Some builders have a that’s not covered attitude towards warranty where Paragon regularly goes above and beyond their warranty obligations to take care of the clients needs.

New Year, New Home

New Year, New Home

It’s 2013, and there’s no time like a  new year for a fresh start.

 

A new year is a great time to look for a new home. Paragon custom home builders offers many options for families seeking new affordable and comfortable, yet upscale, homes.

 

Whether it is casual elegance, traditional architecture, or a modern, understated vibe, Paragon Homes has the custom home options for you – no matter what style you’re looking for!
We’re in some great areas, too. Pittsburgh is one of the most thriving, up-and-coming, and economically stable cities today, and Paragon Homes has some amazing new home communities in and around the Greater Pittsburgh area. We also build beautiful, quality houses on individually-owned sites.

 

If you are just starting to look at properties, or own a lot already, we can help you. We invite you to meet with us to discuss your community requirements, offer design assistance if needed, and more.

 

No matter your budget, style, or personal tastes, we have an option for you.

 

There’s the lovely Fairacres community in Upper St. Clair, the luxe homesites at Walkers Ridge next door to Nevillewood in Collier Township, and Deerfield Ridge in the much-sought-after area of South Fayette Township.

 

If you’d rather be closer to Wexford or Cranberry, we invite you to check out Venango Trails, and if you prefer the luxury and tradition of the Sewickley area, one of the fabulous off site lots nearby may be more your style.

 

If you work or play near the hustle-and-bustle of Robinson Township and North Fayette, we have many options for you: there are fabulous wooded 2 acre lots for single-family homes in Paragon Place and level lots perfect for a walk out life style in Chartiers Landing, both of Robinson Township.

 

There are so many more Paragon communities and home sites in and around Pittsburgh, too!

The Benefits Of Buying a New Custom-Built Home

Why should you consider buying a new home over an already lived-in house?

There are many benefits. With Paragon Homes, custom builders, you can design your dream home, the way you want it! You can choose based on your personal tastes and preferences, so that it will all be your own style. From hardware, to flooring, countertops, cabinets, and more, it will definitely reflect YOU.

In addition to decorative touches, you can choose the kind of floor plan that will suit you and your family. Moving into a pre-existing home means that you are stuck with whatever floor plan and layout is already in place – unless you want to invest time and money into doing home renovations, some of which can become major undertakings.

New homes – especially those built by Paragon – are more energy-efficient than older homes, so you’ll be saving on energy costs, up to 40% or more depending on the homes you are comparing. This can be especially important as we approach another Pittsburgh winter.

Appliances and air conditioning, heat, and windows will not need replaced as soon when buying brand-new. New houses have better indoor air quality, lower maintenance, and advanced designs. They also often feature the latest technology and the utmost in safety.

A brand-new house also means that your home will be under warranty, and will be fresh, clean, and all yours! You’ll have that new-home feel for much longer, and it will all reflect your dreams and your choices. The comfort, quality, and style will be a collaborative effort between you and Paragon – you won’t be living in someone ELSE’S dream home.

So why not create your dream luxury home today? Call Paragon Homes at 412-787-8807, or visit us online at http://www.visitparagonhomes.com

Invest in the Luxury of a Custom-Built Pittsburgh Area Home

Luxury.

By definition, luxury is

  1. Something inessential but conducive to pleasure and comfort, 
  2. Something expensive or hard to obtain, or 
  3. Sumptuous living or surroundings.

But luxury is more than that. It doesn’t have to be expensive or hard to obtain. It’s more than a dollar sign or a price tag – luxury is about living your best life, living your dream, being comfortable and content, and doing it YOUR way.

You can achieve all of this with Paragon Homes! We offer customizable choices – so whether your taste is high-end or a little more subdued, we have the home, and the options, for you.

Is your idea of “luxury” a walk-in closet? A granite countertop? A lush garden? Modern light fixtures? A winding staircase, a steam bath, or a bay window? Is your concept of luxury 1,500 square feet, or 8,000 square feet? Is it traditional and classic, chic and modern, or nostalgic and homey with a touch of whimsy? Whatever it is, luxury is what you want it to be. What makes you feel your best?

Comfort is luxury. Being true to yourself and your vision is luxury. Defining your own personal tastes in a cooperative fashion that allows you to be yourself and have the home of your dreams – now THAT is luxury….and that is something that Paragon is prepared to offer you.

Why choose Paragon Homes? It’s simple. Paragon gives you choices. We have a reputation to uphold and are proud of that fact. As Pittsburgh’s premier custom home builders, we can promise you that you’ll be getting unparalleled levels of craftsmanship, quality materials, great customer service, and outstanding attention to detail.
