October Update for Parc Foret at Montreux

As any Reno Nevada resident will tell you, fall is a beautiful time of year in the Montreux Community. The crisp air and quaking aspens serve as a reminder to get out on the golf course or enjoy one of many local trails before winter truly sets in.

As the trees along the walking path begin to change color and lose their leaves, we invite you to stop by the Welcome Center and hear about the many great things going on at Parc Foret real estate development.

Parc Foret Construction at Montreux

We continue to see plenty of interest and tours of the models are taking place regularly. Construction is moving along on a number of home sites. Additionally, preliminary grading, excavation and retaining wall construction is underway for lots in our second release of Parc Foret.

The buyers of these homes will benefit from a shortened construction period, alternatively they could be used for spec homes since the market continues to gain steam, and we’ve seen demand for completed Parc Foret homes.

The second Parc Foret release will also include modified versions of our floor plans to include a finished walkout basement on our sloped lots, which adds significant square footage while keeping with the great open floor plans of the everyday living being on the main level.

First Homeowners at Parc Foret

We are also pleased to announce that our first few new homeowners will be moving in this fall.

It has been a wonderful experience working with all our buyers thus far, so look forward to seeing some friendly new faces in the Montreux community.

Please remember, the model homes are there for you to tour. Contact your luxury Reno homes team today.

Parc Foret Enclave of Montreux

The first release of nine homes is now available for sale in the new Parc Foret enclave of Montreux.

After years of planning and approvals with this Montreux neighborhood, construction activity is well underway. We have Six homes under construction and seven more that have broken ground.

Parc Foret Models

Three of the Six homes under construction are our three model homes which are close to completion. We plan on opening these models up, very soon—hopefully, at the end of April. If you would like to be notified when the models open, please contact me today by filling out this form.

These models will be fully designed and furnished to help current residents and prospects picture the wonderful living that Parc Foret has to offer.

Montreux Construction Progress

When you drive down to Bordeaux and Pomerol Drives to see the progress of the three model homes you will notice just how much construction activity there is in Montreux!

One of the purposes of the model home complex is in providing an extra tool for current residents to showcase Montreux to their friends, family and potential neighbors. We are designing the models with three unique interior design styles while keeping with the European Alpine exterior.

By so doing, it will help prospects see that they can create their perfect personalized residence in a beautifully planned community. Our goal all along is to create a true semi-custom home buying experience to compliment the wonderful Montreux lifestyle. We are pleased to say that Parc Foret has accomplished this goal.
