Essex Homes of Western New York said Wednesday that its Villas at Essex Woods housing development in Amherst was approved for condo status by the state attorney general, clearing the way for sales of the first new units.
Located at 2350 Sweet Home Road, near North French Road, the project will feature 14 separate three- and four-unit villa buildings, with a total of 48 townhouses.
The villas include two open floor plans with two or three bedrooms, first-floor master suites, 2.5 bathrooms, lofts, rear patios, full basements and 2.5-car garages. One option offers 2,204 square feet, with two second-floor bedrooms, while the other is 2,124 square feet with one extra bedroom upstairs.
Essex broke ground for the two-phase development last winter, and construction is underway. Pricing ranges from $369,900 to $475,900.
“We chose to build in Amherst in response to growing demand for upscale homesites in neighborhoods with prime locations," said CEO Phil Nanula. "We’ve enjoyed great success with other major projects of similar scope and size and look forward to a similar result with this project.”
