Mesquite’s vibrant new home market enlarging
Bloomfield Bringing 750 Homes to Ridge Ranch Master-Planned Community in Mesquite
Bloomfield Homes is enlarging its footprint in Mesquite’s vibrant new home market. On the heels of crafting hundreds of upscale homes in the city’s Hagan Hill community, the Southlake-based homebuilder is slated to construct another 750 single-family homes in the new Ridge Ranch master-planned development, according to the Dallas Business Journal.
"Their enormous success in Hagan Hill on Interstate 20 has demonstrated that executive-style homes can be built and sold in our community," Cliff Keheley, Mesquite City Manager, said in a statement. "This was realized by the fact that last year, the average value of a new home permitted in Mesquite rose by 30 percent to nearly $262,000 dollars."
Mesquite is undergoing its largest surge in new home construction since the 1980s, and based on housing stability and affordability, SmartAsset ranked the eastern Dallas County city the 2017 Healthiest Housing Market in Texas.
While Bloomfield just started its next phase of new homes in Hagan Hill, the builder projects debuting model homes to prospective Ridge Ranch buyers by early 2019.
Located at East Cartwright and Lawson Roads in the city’s southern sector, Ridge Ranch will contain a broad swath of neighborhoods nestled amid lush naturesque settings with mature trees, open space, parks, and six and eight-foot hiking and biking trails.
Comparable to Hagan Hill, one and two-story floor plans will run the gamut from 1,800 to 4,000 square feet. Prices are expected to range between $260,000 and $400,000, and larger lots can accommodate a backyard swimming pool and three-car garage.
Bloomfield Homesis known for its designs and high-end standard features, which include stone and brick elevations, rotunda entrances, and full sprinkler systems as well as energy efficiency and open living space with custom kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances.
The amenity area at Ridge Ranch will contain an adult pool, kiddie pool, splash pool, sunbathing lawn, fire pit, and playground.
Served by the Mesquite Independent School District, the new Don Achziger Elementary School and park are on-site at Ridge Ranch. John Horn High School adjoins the development, and James Terry Middle School is about a mile away.
Ridge Ranch is easily accessible to Interstate 20, Interstate 635, Highway 80, and the planned extension to the President George Bush Turnpike.
According to data from Residential Strategies, Bloomfield Homes is the fourth largest homebuilder in Dallas-Fort Worth.
