Why Build a New Custom Home in Delaware County, Ohio?
If you’re considering building a new custom home in the Central Ohio area, there are quite a few reasons to make Delaware County your choice of where to build. Narrowing the list down to only 5 specific reasons is a difficult task, but we’re up to the challenge for this post.
And let us know your thoughts in the comments as well.
Reason 1: Small Town Charm with Big City Access
Delaware County is just north of the busy hustle and bustle of the big city of Columbus. Comprised of smaller, popular cities and villages like Lewis Center, Powell, Westerville, Galena, Sunbury and the City of Delaware, Delaware County serves as a family-friendly community offering a multitude of attractions, restaurants and land in which to spend your time. However, need to get somewhere in the city? You’re still just minutes away from all Columbus, OH has to offer – aside from most of the traffic. Double-BONUS!
Reason 2: Larger Lot Sizes and Land
We hear from residents and homeowners all the time in and around Columbus complaining about small lot sizes and lack of land upon which to build. Venture just a few minutes north to some of the more rural areas of Delaware County and many more land options become available. While Delaware County is still home to its fair share of subdivisions and small lot sizes, there are plenty of larger lot options available as well. So, if you’re in the market to build a home on a 1/2-acre lot, or even a 15-acre lot, Delaware County may be the perfect place for you! Stonecliff Homes, one of Delaware County’s premier custom home builders, prides itself on building your Dream Home on your very own lot, while giving you exactly what you want along with exceptional service and quality.
Additionally, Stonecliff Homes has been selected as one of the chosen builders in the upcoming Evans Farm community in Lewis Center’s Orange Township and Berlin Township. Learn more about the opportunity to build in Evans Farm here…
Reason 3: Great Schools
In today’s culture, simply living in a good school district is just about as important as the house in which you’ll be living. Many homeowners are willing to forego some of the key home features they wanted in a house in order to live in a better school district boundary. However, by building your new custom home in Delaware County, you can have it all! Delaware County is home to some of the top-rated schools in Central Ohio and all of the state. Olentangy’s three High Schools are all rated in the top 10 High Schools in all of Ohio! And Big Walnut, Westerville Central, and Delaware City Schools all are highly-attractive options as well. Just imagine getting your brand new custom home built exactly as you want on the land you want, but also having the opportunity to send your kids to one of the top schools in the area! (Don’t have kids in school? Living in a top school district is still an important consideration because homes in better school districts sell faster and for more money, and they also attract more buyers if that time ever does come in which you want to consider selling).
Of note, Olentangy will actually be building a 4th High School in the near future, and it’s sure to be a highly-rated school as well.
Reason 4: Attractions in Delaware County
Not even taking into account the three reasons above, the attractions Delaware County offers is enough to make you jump at the opportunity to build your new custom home in Delaware County. Delaware County is well-known for being home to the nation’s top-rated zoo, The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, but Delaware County is also home to Zoombezi Bay, Olentangy Indian Caverns, Magic Mountain Fun Center, Sky Zone, Perkins Observatory, and Stratford Ecological Center. And that doesn’t even take into account the phenomenal shopping opportunities listed as Reason 5…
Reason 5: Shopping for EVERYONE
Okay, so if you still need one more reason to build a home in Delaware County after those four reasons listed above, how about this… Delaware County is home to some of the best shopping in Central Ohio including Polaris Fashion Place, the new Tanger Outlets in Sunbury, Costco, and Cabela’s as well as many smaller shopping spots like those you’d find in downtown Powell’s street market.
