Aberdeen is a one-of-kind neighborhood, a “new kind of community” as its tagline states. The neighborhood is developed around a wellness lifestyle, a connection to nature, landscape and amenities that help you engage with your neighbors.
This caught the eye of Old Town Design Group, one of six custom home builders that participated in the 2021 Home-A-Rama hosted by the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis. Old Town Design was looking to expand beyond its Hamilton County home base, and the Center Grove area seemed like the perfect fit with the opportunity to build in Aberdeen, developed by Mike Duke. The neighborhood is located at 5028 Abbeygate Blvd., Bargersville.
“Old Town, our tagline is ‘We value relationships with our partners, collaborators, and the community and endeavor to pursue community-focused development projects that enrich the lives and well-being of our neighbors, so we always try to find communities that are one of a kind and offer homeowners a new type of living,” said Bailey Nance, Old Town marketing and communications manager.
Old Town was started by Justin Moffett and Jeff Langston in 2009. In the midst of an economic recession, they grew the business from a custom home business to a diverse real estate company which does land development, construction and real estate investment.
“One of the best things about Old Town as a builder is we do everything in-house from architecture to sales and marketing,” Nance said. “Everything is in-house, so it does streamline the process.”
Old Town has completed two homes in the Aberdeen neighborhood and, with lots still available, is ready for more.
“I think people are excited to have a new builder there because we do offer a different type of home,” Nance said. “We really focus on the sight lines in a house, the openness of a plan. Even if you have a traditional dining room, we still try to locate how to get the best views from every room, we try to make it feel as homey as possible.”
Old Town’s current 5,079 square-foot, two-story model home in Aberdeen features four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms with a full basement.
“In our new model home we’re trying to feature the interaction between indoor and outdoor space. People want to live a full life indoors and on their outdoor patio, putting a lot more thought into their landscapes than just a fireplace or TV.”
The home is available to tour by appointment. Learn more about Old Town at oldtowndesigngroup.com or Aberdeen at aberdeenliving.com.
