More than $7 million of real estate has sold at Sterling at Silverleaf since it re-launched in the market last November and now construction is underway of two of its final four remaining villas in phase one.

Starting at $1.36 million, Sterling at Silverleaf is a collection of 16 villas designed by the world-renowned architect Bing Hu and developed by Sterling Collection Development Group.

Construction of the two new models will be completed in March and sell-out is expected by the end of the year. Sterling Collection Development Group is beginning the planning stages of phase two.

“We’re proud of the success we’ve experienced over the past several months and we’ve been able to position ourselves on the leading edge of luxury development as the market begins to recover,” said Nathan Day, president of Sterling Collection Development Group. “It was a big risk to launch a luxury residential community in an economy that indicated the timing wasn’t right. But, for us, we wanted to get ahead of the market and we knew our product was unlike anything in the area. We priced the community aggressively. Buyers took notice of our value-driven approach and our rapid sales success proves it was the right decision.”

Sterling at Silverleaf provides unmatched value for buyers looking to purchase within the prestigious Silverleaf community.
