Providence

History of Providence

Providence is a new construction neighborhood in Pike Road that's zoned for the new Pike Road school system. It's located southeast of the intersection of Vaughn and Pike Roads.  At this intersection, turn south on Pike Road and Providence is the first neighborhood on your left. Construction of this neighborhood originally began around 2007 or so.  The homes and lots were pricey, and the architectural style was going to be "French Country and European" according to the original developer's sales material.  Then came the recession in 2008 and Providence construction came to a screeching halt. Enter Stone Martin Builders  sometime around 2011, and the neighborhood is back on track, but with a new vision, significantly reduced prices, and more limited choices in architectural styles and floor plans. According to a January 11, 2012 article in the Montgomery Advertiser's East Montgomery newspaper, there are "at least 104 lots" now available in Providence, and the builders have several floor plans you can choose from.  These are big homes:  designs range from around 2,000 square feet to 4,300 square feet, with prices from the $219's - $300's. Stone Martin has bought other partially built Pike Road developments and is quickly building them out;  Bon Terre and Gray Ridge, also neighborhoods on Pike Road in close proximity to Providence, are quickly filling up with new homes, too. Why the push to be in Pike Road?   #1, in my opinion these homes are being built at significantly lower prices than anywhere else in town. Look at the square footage and prices above and do the math.   #2 The Pike Road school system. This past October, Town of Pike Road residents voted to raise property taxes in order to support a brand new Pike Road public school system, separate from the Montgomery Public School System.  The new k-12 school is expected to open the first phase of its K-8 facility in 2015All residents of Pike Road will be zoned for this new school.
