A new housing development in southwest Morehead is expected to bring 48 living units to the area by the end of 2018.
Steve Williams, with Southfork General Management, LLC, is bringing houses, duplexes, and townhouses to Lockegee Estates, located behind Save-A-Lot off KY 519.
“I recognized there was a need for quality housing in Morehead,” Williams said. “With that, we wanted to make sure we developed quality housing with multiple different choices for residents that is affordable on nearly any budget.”
Williams, who will renting the residences, said the homes will come in three phases divided into 16 units each. Phase 1 will be complete in early August, with Phase 2 ending Spring 2018, and Phase 3 in Fall 2018.
Options include one-bedroom efficiency homes, two-bedroom homes, single-story two-bedroom duplexes, and two story two-bedroom townhouses.
“We are developing special units that are perfect for someone who prefers to live alone, or even a couple that is wanting to share a room,”
“We also raised the property two feet above the FEMA’s flood requirements,” Williams said. “That area was raised prior to us raising it even further and it never flooded before. I have no worries about that moving forward.”
Parking for the homes will be in front of the residences.
“We wanted to develop property that people would know is structurally sound, in town, yet affordable. That’s what we’ve done,” Williams said. “There are limited spaces and inquiries are already coming in.”
Williams added he plans to develop 100 to 150 more housing units in Rowan County over the next two years.
