Merry Christmas and happy holidays from the Parry Custom Homes! This time of year is so great to spend time with friends and family, and enjoy all of the joy that the holidays and New Year has to bring. However, it may not seem like the ideal time to buy or look for a new home. When searching for new homes in Pittsburgh, just as important as the home you select is the community in which it is housed.

Buying a new home is much more than just the home itself. The community in which you purchase your home needs to be equally as special and comfortable as the home you buy. Luckily, Parry Custom Homes not only builds the best of the best of Pittsburgh new homes, but we also build in the most sought after locations. One of the hottest communities in the Pittsburgh area right now, Mountain Ridge Estates!

Located within North Huntingdon Township in Westmoreland County, Mountain Ridge Estates is within the Norwin School District. Those of you with kids will be please to know that the Norwin School District is consistently high among the school rankings in Westmoreland County and across the state of Pittsburgh.

The name of this community plays a big part in the community itself! Sitting atop of the ridge of a mountain, you wont be able to get better views than at Mountain Ridge Estates.

Homes within this stunning community are situated within gorgeously wooded back yards and breathtaking views that you can enjoy each day. Can you imagine enjoying your coffee in the morning on your back porch while overlooking this picturesque scenery?

Mountain View Estates is one of  a kind in the fact it offers a community feel, within a wooden mountain atmosphere.

The location of this community is equally as amazing as the community itself. Imagine living in a community such as this yet still being within 15 miles from downtown Pittsburgh! Commuting to and from this community is easy as well, making your workday commute a breeze.

Another huge reason this community is so desirable? There isn’t a new home development located in North Huntingdon or Westmoreland County that is closer to Allegheny County and presents the ease of getting in and out of the city of Pittsburgh while still having the low Westmoreland County Taxes.

Mountain Ridge Estates is the ideal community for buyers who desire the privacy of a private lot, but want the amenities of a neighborhood.

Contact us anytime to learn about how you can make this amazing new home community your home that you can enjoy many holidays to come!
