Gray Ridge in Pike Road – New Construction Homes for Sale Now

January 27th, 2012 categories: Neighborhoods, Pike Road, Uncategorized
Gray Ridge is a Pike Road neighborhood that currently has homes and lots for sale, and Gray Ridge is zoned for the upcoming Pike Road School system. Gray Ridge is small - there's one main street that runs through the development - so there's no thru traffic, and it's very convenient to I-85.  Some parts of Pike Road are very rural, but Gray Ridge has a suburban feel. It backs up to the established neighborhood of Lochshire, and is also close to Bridle Brook and Woodland Creek.

You're close to Vaughn  Road, Chantilly Parkway (Wal Mart, Home Depot), and The Shoppes at EastChase.  For a Pike Road location, it's very close to East Montgomery, and since you can hop on I-85 quickly at either the Mitylene or Waugfh exits via Highway 80, drive time into the city is pretty quick. Gray Ridge is another neighborhood that was originally begun before the recession of 2008.  One or maybe two homes were built, and then it sat silent for a few years.  It's been in the hands of a couple of developers along the way, but Gray Ridge is now being built out by Stone Martin Builders. Similar to Bon Terre and Providence (both neighborhoods also on Pike Road), there are lots for sale and floor plans to choose from.  According to the ad in Montgomery Advertiser East Montgomery December 28, 2012 paper,  homes in Gray Ridge have 2,000 - 4,300 SF of living space and are priced from the $170's to the $210's. I'll let you do the math.

We Chose Breckenridge in Montgomery, AL – Here’s Why

Breckenridge (located on Ray Thorington Road, right past Deer Creek) looks pretty, but what's it really like to live there?  We wanted the scoop on this newer neighborhood in east Montgomery, AL, so we asked a homeowner.  Check out what Marla had to say below. Question:  Why did you choose Breckenridge when you were looking to buy a home? Answer:    We chose Breckenridge because we wanted to be a little further out of the city but still have all the city perks (ex., water, garbage, fire department,).  We also liked the feel about Breckenridge!  We thought it would be nice to be a part of a newly developed neighborhood. Question:  What perks have you found living in this neighborhood (that you may not have considered when you bought)? Answer:  The clubhouse is wonderful!  The weight room is extremely nice, the kids (and I) LOVE the swimming pool, the tennis court is great as well.  An added bonus is the 2 ponds that are just a short walking distance from our house.  Our new puppy will LOVE them!  The middle school that is almost directly behind my house is a huge added bonus that we did not know would be ready when we moved here.  Also, the location is EXTREMELY convenient to so many things!  Most things that I need are only 8 to 9 minutes from my driveway. Question:  What's one piece of advice you'd give someone relocating to Montgomery Answer:  Convenience!  With everyone's busy lifestyle no one wants to be in the car any longer than they have to.  Look at what is available close to you.  Also, look at a neighborhood at different times of the day.  Are families outside playing, walking the dog? Thanks so much for your help, Marla!  Not only are you a most fabulous pre-school teacher, you are also a huge help to families looking for homes in the River Region.
