Residential Development

Community of Craftsman Bungalows is Planned

A development of 36 craftsman bungalow style homes designed to appeal to young adults and empty nesters has received preliminary approval from Washington Township Trustees.

The 15.3-acre plat on West Social Row Road will offer patio homes with brick and stone architectural features such as porches and chimneys, recessed garages, dormers, low-pitched gable roofs with wide overhangs, and large prairie-style windows, according to the concept plans approved for Peebles Development.  


Prominent porches, sidewalks, and reduced setbacks will encourage residents to interact and promote a sense of community, Lee said. Located across from Watch Hill Lane, the development will connect on its south side to a five-acre park. A mixed-use development is located to the west.

The slab homes with optional lofts range from 1,120 to 1,600 square feet and are priced at $275,000 and up. An HOA will maintain common areas and at least part of individual lots. The original farm house on the property will be renovated to reflect the aesthetics of the craftsman bungalow style.

Single-Family Developments Flourish

Residential development in the southern part of Washington Township includes new single-family projects, plus existing developments where building continues to take place:

Washington Glen

The township's largest new residential project is Washington Glen, an 84-acre, single-family development on the west side of Yankee Street, south of Social Row Road and across from Waterbury Woods Drive. The plan approved in 2015 includes 261 single-family homes with two distinct neighborhoods and housing styles – one for empty nesters and the other a House photomore traditional neighborhood layout for families, with pockets of recreational space.

The plan includes a landscaped boulevard and entrance at Yankee Street with a traffic signal, a decorative water feature to the north, and multi-use trails that provide access from Yankee to Springboro. Washington Glen extends southwest from the Yankee Street entrance and provides connectivity to Yankee Terrace and Settler's Walk.


Construction is underway at Wynstone, a 96-home development located on 63 acres off Clyo Road, near Rooks Road and southeast of the Trails of Saddlecreek subdivision.

Prices start at $237,000.

The apartments are the second component of a 64-acre mixed use development, following Goddard School.

Oberer Companies - Trustees have approved a conceptual plan for a residential multi-family development at the southeast corner of Sheehan and Social Row roads within the Washington Trace Development. The complex proposes "big house" style arthitecture that resembles large, single-family homes.
