Abney Glen, a new West Carmel neighborhood - wow what a deal! Abney Glen, located at 116th and Shelbourne, is west Carmel’s newest Drees Homes community. A quick search of Carmel $400k - $600k real estate will show you what an amazing little gem this neighborhood is. Consisting of only 40 home sites, Abney Glen offers homes from the $400’s to the $600’s and they are on great lots. What is currently out there in Carmel real estate is either an older home that has zero updates (oak cabinets, brass everything, dirty carpet, you know the drill) with a pretty good lot and nice established landscaping or a newer home with decent interior selections on the worst, smallest, power lined lot on the street. This is what has me so intrigued with this community – you are getting the best of both worlds. A brand new home with all the bells and whistles and you get to build it on a large lot with no rear neighbors and can comfortably be in the low $500’s. Not an easy combination to find in West Carmel homes for sale. Trust me, I have looked and looked until near exhaustion.
Don’t be fooled by the old Drees models and “old fashioned” stigma, they can build you a beautiful customized home with all the latest and greatest options (hand scraped wood floors, granite counters, gourmet kitchens, etc) and the floor plans are livable and make sense for today’s buyer. The best part is they beat the price of the competition in the area. For example, go across the street to Saddlebrook, a custom home neighborhood being built by Rex Brown. Abney Glen homes in Carmel are absolutely gorgeous the lots are so - so and the prices are $200,000 more.
