CINCINNATI — A Blue Ash developer is planning a 31-home subdivision on the site of a former golf course in Delhi Township.
Robert C. Rhein Interests Inc. paid $1.2 million for the 15-acre Delhi Hills Par 3 Golf Course. The sale closed March 3, according to Hamilton County property records.
Rhein Interests is partnering with Drees Homes to build out the $20 million subdivision over the next two years, said Steven Bosse, a Rhein Interests vice president.
“It’s a great piece of ground,” Bosse said. “It lays itself out very nicely for a subdivision.”
A site plan filed with the Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission shows 31 single-family homes will be installed at Greenside Estates. Lots will range in size from 0.32 to 0.55 acres.
Bosse expects Drees to have a model home available by fall Home prices start at $450,000. The neighborhood will feature a landscaped entrance off Ebenezer Road near Cleves Warsaw Pike and a U-shaped street called Birdie Court. That new street will connect to Hickorytree Court in an adjoining subdivision east of Greenside Estates, Bosse said.
Realtor Kurt Lamping said there is demand on Cincinnati’s West Side for new homes priced between $400,000 and $700,000.
“Higher end homes are selling,” said Lamping, a senior sales vice president for Star One Realtors. “It’s going to be a very good addition to the west side of town once it’s completed.”
This is the latest in a string of local golf courses to be targeted by developers for new housing or commercial projects.
The 101-acre Hillview Golf Course is now filling up as a Green Township subdivision with more than 200 new homes.
The 135-acre Hidden Creek golf course at GE Park in Springdale is in the process of a $43 million conversion into an industrial park.
The 168-acre Crooked Tree Golf Course in Mason gave way to Crooked Tree Preserve, an upscale housing development with home prices starting at $550,000.
