Neighborly Surprise in Lochshire: Growing Goodwill

April 13th, 2010 categories: Neighborhoods, Pike Road
IMG_0465 It's fun to write about little happenings like this- it's a real peek into the character of a neighborhood. Something you can't tell from the MLS. This Lochshire homeowner is just passing along a kindness, it appears. While jogging in Lochshire today, I passed by this display of young vegetable plants, set out by the curb in this Pike Road neighborhood.  I came back in my car and found another neighbor had discovered this surprise as well. If you want to know more about Lochshire in Pike Road, or any other the neighborhoods in East Montgomery, give us a call.  Let one of our  knowledgeable Realtors help you find just the right place to call home.

What does this mean?  I'm not making any predictions about the market, but I will say I haven't seen much new building going on in the past year. It's nice to see a little real estate action. Have you noticed new construction in your area of the River Region?  Comment below and let us know what's going on in your neighborhood. If you'd like to find a new construction home or any property in the Montgomery MLS, give us a call.  We'd love to help!

Neighborhood Spotlight: Lochshire in Pike Road, AL

January 6th, 2009 categories: Neighborhoods, Pike Road
Are you looking for a new construction home? Or a lot to build on?  In East Montgomery?  Maybe in Pike Road?   Maybe you'd like to try Pike Road, but don't want to live way out in the "country"?  If you want lots of options, try Lochshire - it is of ALL the above. Lochshire is located at the corner of Vaughn and Pike Roads, and has had a patchwork of Montgomery and Pike Road addresses.  When originally built, owners could choose to be in Pike Road, City of Montgomery, or Montgomery County.  More and more of these homes are being annexed into Pike Road, however, probably because of the push to create a Pike Road school system.  For the latest update on Lochshire zoning, contact the Town of Pike Road town hall. Lochshire is not completely built out, but is an established neighborhood.  My curb estimate puts the homes at over 2,000 sq ft. (some a good bit more than that).  There are no amenities - pool, playground, etc. - but the common areas are nicely landscaped and well maintained.  There are lots for sale in the back of the neighborhood, and many of these lots back up to a wetlands area that is owned by the neighborhood.  A few spec homes remain on the market, along with the regular home for sale, so there is a lot to choose from. Lochshire, like many homes in Pike Road, is 5 minutes from I-85, so access to anywhere in Montgomery is easy.  It's a couple of minutes from Chantilly Parkway, and a short drive down Vaughn Road to anything in East Montgomery. Here are some pics I took today of homes and lots for sale in Lochshire.  If you're interested, or just want to know more about this area, contact us at the number at the top of the page.
