Smith Village Will Offer 67 New Detached and Attached Homes

SANTA ROSA, Calif. – December 14, 2016 – Lafferty Communities and Presidio Residential Capital recently broke ground on Smith Village, a 67-unit community on 8.97 acres at Sebastopol Road and Justin Drive in southwest Santa Rosa. The retail value of this project will exceed $33 million.

Smith Village will offer 51 detached homes on lots averaging 4,500 square feet and 16 attached single-family homes on lots averaging 2,236 square feet. The community, which is expected to be open for sale in the spring of 2017, is being built on vacant land.

The project site is in an urbanized area on parcels previously developed with most major infrastructure complete. It is about an hour north of San Francisco and close to several parks and recreational facilities with easy access to Scenic Highway 12. The neighborhood will be served by the Santa Rosa City and Wright School districts.

In keeping with Santa Rosa’s long-standing commitment to water conservation, Smith Village will feature ultra-low flush toilets, low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators, as well as water efficient landscapes.

Lafferty and Presidio have partnered to build two other communities: Brioso, an 18-unit community on 7.19 acres in Napa, Calif., and Amber Field, an environmentally friendly 36-unit community located on 9.84 acres in Brentwood, Calif.

According to the National Association of Home Builders’ formula to determine the local impact of single-family housing in typical metro areas, adding 67 single-family homes will generate $19.2 million in local income, $2.4 million in taxes and other revenue for local governments and 264 local jobs.
