The sprawling south Huntsville development where hundreds of homes are planned outside the gates of Redstone Arsenal now has a new home builder, plans to include million-dollar homes and expanding commercial offerings.
In short, according to Hays Farm developer Jeff Enfinger, there is a lot going on these days on family-owned land being transformed into a gathering spot for the area.
The biggest update is Enfinger, who is developing the property along with Jim and John Hays, started a home-building company to finish out residential construction after Goodall Homes left the project as part of a downsizing in the Huntsville market. Hays Farm Homes – created strictly to build homes at the development, Enfinger said – will build 356 homes after Goodall build 74.
The Hays Farm Homes construction will be in parcels of land known as The Forest and The Fields. The Forge, the smallest of the three home parcels and the first site of home construction at the development where Goodall worked, has largely been completed.
The million-dollar homes – an upgrade from previous plans – will be part of The Forest, which is across Haysland Road from Grissom High School. The price range for homes in The Forest will be $700,000 to $1 million or more, Enfinger said. At The Fields, Enfinger said price ranges will be $450,000-650,000.
