It has taken a year to come to fruition, but Olde Towne subdivision has broken ground on the first home.
Southern Real Estate and Maxwell Construction Company paired together to develop this subdivision, which they are calling upscale and unique.
According to Davis, Olde Towne is the first new home development in Atmore in more than 25 years.
The subdivision, which is located off of McRae Street, offers 50 home sites with tree-lined streets, sidewalks and decorative street lighting.
Richard Maxwell, president of Maxwell Construction Company, added that these amenities are what make Olde Towne unique.
It is also the first subdivision ever to have a homeowner’s association and offers restrictive covenants along with city water and sewer services, something Davis said has garnered much positive attention from the community.
Maxwell said the need for this type of development has made itself apparent in recent years.
Another draw for buyers is the ability to “go green” with their building.
Spec houses will begin construction soon and will be ready in the next few months.
Interested buyers can choose from pre-drawn home designs or bring their own to be reviewed. Prices for the homes start in the $160,000 range.
