Realtors, developers and builders cut the ribbon at a ceremony celebrating the new residential development called The Villas at Carrousel Lakes on Friday, November 4.

New Middletown is the home of this new residential area. 

The homes are 1-floor, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villas curated for those looking to downsize. Each of the 14 villas are freestanding, customizable and include exterior maintenance in the monthly Homeowners Association fee.

Each villa costs around $300,000, but prices may vary depending on customizations.

"If they want a basement we can add that on for them. If they want it finished tell us how you want it finished. If you would like a larger sunroom we want to make the villa the way you want it," Realtor Jenna Koontz said.

Koontz recommends buying now before interest rates and building material costs spike again. She said she's been working with this builder for over 5 years, and the cost of construction has gone up every year.

Tours of the model home are available upon request. Contact Koontz at 330-519-0999 or Realtor Rich Feezle at 330-853-3569.
