New Development: Ashbourne Meadows
In late 2019, the former Ashbourne Country Club, now “Ashbourne Meadows,” underwent a transfer of ownership from Matrix-Ashbourne Associates, L.P. to the new owner Liberty Commercial Development Corp, LTD with offices located at 1 South Main Street, The Wheelhouse Suite #5, Sellersville, PA 18960.
This Development with approximately 71.95 acres is underway with site work and related public improvements. The project still entails the construction of 90 Single Family Dwelling units, and 76 Carriage homes (166 total units); the dedication of 33.9 acres of open space to the Township, multiple bio-retention basins and other storm water features; a walking trail/path and a bus shelter. The initial part of this development will entail construction of Phases I, II and V with a total of 30 Single Family Homes and 38 Carriage Homes with ground breaking scheduled in the summer of 2021. Additional phases will follow contingent on sales.
This Development is a collaboration between the residents and the developer, resulting in specific requirements related to ensuring that it conforms to the surrounding neighborhoods as memorialized in various Stipulated Settlement Agreements. These range from the type of building materials to be utilized on the building facades, rear/front facing, buffering, lighting and landscaping, to mention but a few.
