HAMLET HOMES OPENS NEW KENMURE PLACE COMMUNITY IN MILLCREEK, FOUR HOMES SOLD IN FIRST THREE WEEKS
First phase consists of six, two-unit twin homes as part of a 20-lot subdivision MILLCREEK, UT (March 11, 2013) – Reflecting the Salt Lake market’s strong demand for new homes, Hamlet Homes’ newest community, Kenmure Place in Millcreek, has sold four of the subdivision’s 20 homes since opening the community’s model home, February 16. Located at 4460 Gordon Lane (400 East), Kenmure Place is nestled in an attractive, wooded area of Millcreek just off 4500 South. The first phase includes 12 homes with 5,000 square-foot lots starting at $241,900. A second phase with eight homes will begin in summer 2013. “Since 1994, Hamlet Homes has been a leading developer of residential and commercial communities along the Wasatch Front,” said Michael Brodsky, founder, owner and chairman of Hamlet Homes. “The housing collapse of 2008 prompted Hamlet to step back until there was a break in the housing market. Our new Millcreek community represents the company’s resurgence into the Salt Lake home-building market and the beginning of a new chapter in the company’s nearly 20-year history of ‘Great Homes. Great People. Great Experience.’” The twin homes at Kenmure Place are similar to single family homes but with a shared wall. The attractive, 2,350 sf Kenna floor plan offers a three bed, two-and-a-half bath, two-car garage and full walk-out basement. Master bedrooms feature two walk-in closets and a tray ceiling. There are also options for homebuyers to finish the lower level with either a family room with full bath or a fourth bedroom with full bath. There will not be a Homeowners Association or HOA fees in buying a home at Kenmure Place. Homes in the new community are constructed using stucco and LP Smart Side engineered wood products making them virtually maintenance-free. Kitchens feature granite counter-tops and Whirlpool appliances. They will feature many energy efficiencies including Low-E windows, energy efficient furnaces, high-efficiency air conditioners and Energy Star appliances. Each Kenmure Place home includes a front and side yard, and five-foot lawns in the backyard that are surrounded by natural landscaping and screened for privacy by the densely wooded, park-like lots. The centrally located community offers easy access to TRAX and the I-15 freeway, as well as to many employment and shopping centers in the surrounding area.

The Naming of Kenmure Place Hamlet Homes has a tradition of naming its communities after Scottish people and places. In keeping with that tradition, research was conducted on The Gordon Clan of Scotland. The Gordon Clan lived a mile south of the village of New Galloway in a place called Kenmure Castle. William Gordon of Kenmure was made famous by a poem written by Sir Walter Scott, known as The Ballad of Young Lochinvar. Hamlet Homes selected Kenmure Place in naming its latest community and Lochinvar Court for a new street in Phase II.
