With access to housing a top priority for the Freeman community, the recently launched housing addition on Freeman’s west side is a welcomed addition. The 14-acre property features 18 generously-sized residential lots and now, its first completed home.
The home is, in fact, move-in ready and available for sale. “My wife & daughter have gotten into fixing up houses as well as building new homes,” notes Kelly Knodel, a local contractor who owns the home along with his wife Laura. “This particular home features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on the main floor, plus lots of options for two more bedrooms and a bath in the basement. It’s complete with flooring, lighting, paint, appliances and an oversized, triple garage.”
Located within city limits, residents of Westward View will have access to city services that include water, sewer, garbage collection and snow removal. Among the other advantages of living in Westward View is the direct access residents will have to nature. The property is edged by tranquil farm fields and provides never-ending views of stunning skyscapes throughout the day. The lot on which this particular home is built is over an acre in size. “It offers amazing options for a dream backyard,” adds Knodel.
Westward View is owned by the Freeman Community Development Corporation through a land purchase made possible by the Freeman Growth Foundation. The City of Freeman served as the developer of the property, investing nearly one million dollars in infrastructure for the street, cul de sac, curb and gutter, and installation of utility hook-ups. Proceeds from lot sales are to be split equally between the city and the development corporation. To date, one other lot in the development has been sold.
All three of Freeman’s realtors – Christa Helma, Glenn Roth and Amy Stahl – are handling Westward View sales. Their contact information, along with additional details – including lot measurements, covenants and pricing – can be found by following the QR code or visiting CityofFreeman.org/properties.
