Randy Terry and his brothers have begun to market a vision for a housing development located at Millikin and Princeton-Glendale roads in Liberty Township. According to Cincinnati.com, the group plans to name the new community Carriage Hill.
Here is a portion of an article written by Cincinnati.com reporter Sheila McLaughlin:
It’s a concept Liberty Township officials say they’ve never seen before in this growing Butler County community.
“It’s a neighborhood unlike anything we have in Greater Cincinnati,” said Caroline McKinney, township economic-development director. “It’s a gorgeous piece of property. They want to keep their homes there, so it is of great interest to them that it is developed correctly. They are not just handing it over for somebody to come in and see how many homes they can stick in this acreage.”
The plan is to build 450 custom and semi-custom single-family homes and 250 maintenance-free patio homes and villas in four distinct neighborhoods with an eye on preserving the woods, ponds, creeks and other natural elements of the land.
Price tags range from $300,000 to $900,000, with the first phase of construction beginning on 17 lots off Millikin Road in the former Winding Creek subdivision, which the Terrys purchased after it failed.
Paths for walking and cycling will run through the development and connect to Liberty Township’s network of hiking and biking trails. A dog park, children’s campground, and pocket parks are among the plans. Eighty acres will be open space.
The centerpiece of the community is a restored 1882 carriage house that was moved from Port Union Road in 2000. The 5,000-square-foot structure with 17,000 cobblestones as its floor was used as a barley storage barn for the Windisch-Mulhauser Brewing Company in Cincinnati during the city’s beer brewing heyday.
