Warmington Breaks Ground on Legacy Collection Models

If you have driven up Sky Ranch in the last week, you have seen signs of construction activity on Stockmen Road.  Construction has indeed begun on the two model homes that Warmington Homes is building for its Legacy Collection tract in Covenant Hills.  Warmington has already moved into the Sales Center on Bell Pasture and is pre-selling its Phase One release.  We correctly surmised the location of the models and first phase in this post.  We now have confirmation on the locations and plans of the models and Phase One homes, and we’ve updated our map below (for reference, Covenant Hills Drive runs along the top of the map, just above the model homes).

Locations and Plans for the Legacy Collection Model and Phase One Homes

As we mentioned before, it appears that Warmington is building on its most valuable lots first — Vaquero sits just below Catalina Vista, arguable the most premium street in Covenant Hills.  If you are interested in the Legacy Collection homes, it would behoove you to think seriously about a Phase One reservation as these are likely going to be the best offerings in the project.  Links to renderings and floor plans are available from this post.  We’re told that base prices will begin in the low $1 millions, and that Phase One homes will likely range between $1,000,000 and $1,250,000, depending on the plan, elevation and lot premium.  Upgrades and landscaping would be additional, so buyers are probably looking at close to $1.5M for one of these homes.  Will they sell at that price point?  We shall see.
