Residential growth remains among the biggest news in Avon, as subdivisions fill up and new ones spring on line at a rapid pace.
Several extensive residential areas, including Stratford of Avon, Turner Trace, Hollowbrook, Parks of Prestwick and The Settlement/Centex Homes, dot the foundation of the Avon community, each encompassing its own unique persona.
From high-quality single and multi-family homes to lovely condominium and apartment complexes, Avon has it all.
Rolling hills make Avon particularly appealing to custom-built residences, attracting an array of people, from newscasters to professional football players to top executives, all interested in making these subdivisions their home base.
Builders and developers report a high concentration of sales managers, consultants, professors, entrepreneurs and software developers buying their lots. Most of the new residents are more sophisticated, move-up buyers looking for an ideal place to raise a family.
To keep this frantic growth on a smooth course, Avon incorporated as a town in the spring of 1996. This official move allowed the town to plan character instead of accepting shotgun growth. Experts say Avon is on the right path since it boasts that crucial mix of starter, middle-income and upper-end move-up opportunities in both the existing neighborhoods and new developments.
Furthermore, this incorporation protects the attractive country atmosphere from losing its balance with encroaching retail and industry projects. Thanks to Avon’s proximity to Indianapolis, architectural and engineering firms predict the majority of land in the township will be developed in the very near future.
