Several residences have recently been completed at the Lehigh Valley neighborhood, filling its streetscapes with distinctive estate-style homes on well-manicured and landscaped lots, according to developer Sterling Properties. As the community transitions into an established neighborhood, buyers have taken notice. Purchasers in contract at Sterling Estates are anxious to join the transformation, resulting is several homes closed in the past few weeks alone.
“Activity builds excitement and interest and that’s exactly what’s happening at Sterling Estates,” says Nick Hollenbeck, Director of Sales and Marketing for Sterling Properties. “Our buyers are watching the community take shape and are eager to close on their home and move in as soon as possible. Our interested prospects are equally as motivated and expressing strong interest in purchasing at Sterling Estates.”

Some of the most popular floorplans are available with accelerated move-in dates, including an Ashton and Hanover design.
