As a long time real estate broker, I make a real effort to stay in tune with population demographics, residential housing activity and commercial real estate activity. And since I live and work in Collegeville, I’m especially interested in real estate activity in the Perkiomen Valley, Spring-Ford and Phoenixville areas.
In that spirit, I recently paid a visit to White Springs at Providence, a Toll Brothers Builders development located off Arcola Rd in Upper Providence Township. The community consists of what most anyone would say are luxurious carriage homes with on- site recreational amenities such as a clubhouse with fitness center, tennis court, bocce court, swimming pool, horseshoe pit, pavilion, walking trails, and meticulously maintained grounds. Low maintenance and high elegance living, to be sure.
Construction began in 2012 and buyers flocked to the community right away. A number of homes have been built, sold and are occupied, with more homes under construction at this writing and some building lots still available for purchase. The White Springs at Providence community actually straddles Arcola Rd. The south side, called The Regency Collection, consists of over 160 homes in an age 55 plus community. The north side, called The Manors Collection, offers 126 homes to any qualified buyer – no age restrictions. It’s important to note that ALL White Springs at Providence homeowners are members of the homeowners association and enjoy the same benefits and amenities accordingly.
Toll Brothers offers five models to choose from at White Springs – all are two story carriage style townhomes with 3 or 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 2 car garages. Living space ranges from The Vanleer at 2278 sq ft to The Henderson at 2316 sq ft to The Hengrave at 2451 sq ft to The Brandeis at 2565 sq ft to the very spacious Delancy at 2621 sq ft. There are various options and upgrades available such as an expanded great room, greenhouse with sliding patio door, decks, fireplaces – the list goes on and on. And of course, prices vary accordingly.
Remember, too, that construction started in 2012 with the first homes sold by Toll Brothers in early 2013. Some homes have already been put on the market by the original purchasers and resold. Other previously sold homes are on the market at this writing. That said, if you don’t require “new construction”, you may be able to purchase a White Springs At Providence resale home and avoid the Toll Brothers sales process altogether.
Either way – new construction purchase or resale purchase – White Springs At Providence offers finely built homes with a variety of housing options. And located in a desirable area of Montgomery County – just rural enough to enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer yet close to Rt 422, Rt 29, King of Prussia, Valley Forge and the shops and eateries of Collegeville, Phoenixville and Limerick. Is it time for you to take a look at White Springs of Providence?
