The Copperas Cove Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday for Heartwood Park, Cove’s newest housing development.
Heartwood Park was opened by builder D.R. Horton and is on Courtney Lane between S.C. Lee Junior High School and Williams/Ledger Elementary School. It will offer more than 100 homes “with room to grow,” said sales consultant Amber Houmes.
“We offer single-floor plans, two-story homes, added features and have people on-site seven days a week to show model homes,” said Houmes. “We also offer quick move-in, which is within six months and is how long it takes to build the homes.”
All homes built in Heartwood Park will go through the Home Energy Rate System Test to ensure energy efficiency.
It has easy access to Fort Hood via State Highway 9, Houmes added.
Base model homes range from floor plans of 1,364 square feet to about 3,500 and will cost between $125,000 to $220,000 without added features.
The addition of the new homes is a very good indicator of the growth of Copperas Cove, said Councilwoman Marty Smith, Place 4.
“This is the second time D.R. Horton has built here in Cove. They built some down in House Creek Manor, and they put them up really quick” Smith said. “More rooftops means more people, which means more businesses will want to come here.”
