Providence is located southeast of the intersection of Vaughn and Pike Roads, and I think 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 we had a recession and Providence construction came to a screeching halt.

Enter Stone Martin Builders 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.

To recap: new construction, large homes, low prices, new school system = get it while it’s hot.

Now Selling: Providence Neighborhood in Pike Road

What follows is a older post from 2009 – Nice if you want a history of Providence, but not relevant if you’re currently looking for a home.

Providence is for those who 1) want to build a new house,  2) want to live in Pike Road, AL, but  3) still want to live very close in to Montgomery in a planned development.

Horse farm it is not.

If you fit the bill, then take the (really) short drive to the intersection of Vaughn and Pike Roads.  You’re there. (Turn south onto Pike and it’s on your left).

I drove through today, and they’ve cut in the streets and sidewalks. There’s a pretty entrance and streetlights – I’m guessing this is Phase I.  The developers are selling lots that are either 60′ by 145′ (“The Traditions”) or 100′ by 200′ (“The Estates”).  Traditions homes have to be a minimum of 2,400 square feet and Estate homes a minimum of 2,800 square feet.

The website says you can bring your own builder, and that gives buyers some flexibility.

What will the homes look like?  Providence’s brochure says they’ll have “elements  of French Country and European architecture woven into modern home designs.”  Click here to see sample house plans on the Providence website.

Is your interest piqued?  Give us a call at the number at the top of the page or contact us through the Contacts tab and we’d be glad to  help you learn more about this new development.
