Carefree living the focus of innovative College Place community
Miles of walking paths. More than 23 acres of shared parks, ponds and riparian zones. Consistent architecture and tightly controlled home and yard plans. The Villages of Garrison Creek in College Place, Wash., is a neighborhood unlike any other in the Walla Walla Valley.
Under the leadership and vision of Prohaska Botimer Construction, the Villages has exploded into a fast-growing community with more than 200 homes. The 100-acre site, currently featuring residences from 1,100 to 4,500 square feet and prices from $150,000 to $550,000, is scheduled for completion in 2011.
The Villages experience has proven to be its most effective selling point. Most owners are drawn by the opportunity for a reduced-stress, less complicated living experience. With parks and yards maintained by the homeowners association, it’s a carefree environment that also helps protect and enhance home values.
A future phase will include carefully selected retailers that contribute to the pedestrian nature of the neighborhood and bring added value to homeowners – places like a grocery store, coffee shop and book store.
