Ten years. Thirteen builders. 900 lots sold. 1,700 acres. 2,800 home sites. When you’re building a community the size of a small city, the numbers are bound to be impressive.
These are the statistics for Jerome Village, the master-planned development of Nationwide Realty Investors that currently offers 14 neighborhoods in Jerome Township, at the northern edge of the Dublin City School District. Seven of those 14 neighborhoods are already sold through, with four more neighborhoods on the way. And two of those premier neighborhoods have hosted the BIA Parade of Homes: the Cranberry neighborhood in 2013, and Eversole Run in 2018.
Top Columbus home builders currently building at Jerome Village include:
· 3 Pillar Homes
· Arthur Rutenberg Homes
· Bob Webb Homes
· Compass Homes
· Epcon Communities
· Fischer Homes
· Manor Homes
· Memmer Homes
· Pulte Homes
· Rockford Homes
· Romanelli & Hughes
· Schottenstein Homes
Varied Living Options
As you can see from the list of builders alone, Jerome Village offers an abundance of home buying options for consumers – a unique feature that most other central Ohio residential developments lack.
Master developer Nationwide Realty Investors has made a concerted effort to ensure a high architectural standard and a range of color palettes are offered at Jerome Village. The result: a variety of home styles and pricing that attracts today’s buyers and allows for healthy competition among builders and neighborhoods.
3 Pillar Homes is currently building in the Arrowwood, Eversole Run and Eversole Woods neighborhoods.
“Wherever you fall into the market share, there is a place for you at Jerome Village,” says Zenios Michael Zenios, president and CEO of 3 Pillar.
Pricing begins around $350,000 in the Willowbrush neighborhood and extends to more than $1.5 million-plus in the private gated Plum Ridge Place neighborhood. Homes in Plum Ridge can be purchased directly through the developer by any affluent buyer or custom homebuilder with innovative development opportunities – for example, a 14,000-square-foot custom home situated on two lots.
With the majority of demand throughout central Ohio focusing on single-family homes, it’s been a welcomed addition to see a variety of low-maintenance patio home types rise in popularity over the last few years. Epcon Communities’ second phase is under way in Jerome Village, while custom home builders Bob Webb Homes and Romanelli & Hughes both have simplified living options available in the Eversole Run and Eversole Woods neighborhoods.
Epcon’s prospective homeowners are most attracted to the quality of life at Jerome Village.
“The intergenerational mix, the community center, the pool, the bike paths, the restaurant – there is so much here for buyers when they choose Jerome Village,” says Nanette Overly, vice president of sales and marketing for Epcon.
This range of diversity, coupled with the pace of sales, is something that Jerome Village prides itself on. It’s no wonder, with 13 builders and 12 active model homes, that Realtors and prospective buyers continue to show up week after week, with an average of 10-15 building permit applications applied for monthly. Also noteworthy: The development continues to see families who bought their first home within Jerome Village nearly a decade ago move on to larger homes within the project.
Bob Webb has model homes in Eversole Run and is actively developing in Jerome Village’s Arrowwood, Eversole Run and Plum Ridge Place neighborhoods.
“The concept of having a planned community that focuses on the community itself – the paths, the walking areas, and the fact that it was located in Dublin City Schools – was like a home run for us,” says Scott Shively, chief operating officer for Bob Webb.
Community-wide amenities are already in place, including the Jerome Village Community Center. The members-only center is home to a fitness center, a pool and The Jerome Village Bar & Grille – open to the general public.
Amenities, including the extensive bike trail system, will continue to expand as the development grows. The developer also anticipates future retail, including a potential grocery component.
Another highlight for Jerome Village residents: Dublin schools located within the development. Yes, that’s schools – plural. There are 43 acres reserved for an elementary school and a middle school. Abraham Depp Elementary School is under construction and is set to open its doors at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year.
And the public amenities don’t end there. Jerome Village is dedicating $5.5 million to fund the development and equipment of the Jerome Township Division of Fire and Union County Sheriff’s Office.
“The quality of life at Jerome Village is something that ranks pretty high,” says Zenios. “Jerome Village has a lot of things to offer.”
