Crestmont Heritage, a residential home builder in Reading, has completed the first of a new 10-unit residential housing project in the 300 block of Crestmont Street in Reading’s Millmont/18th Ward neighborhood.
“Our goal is to provide environmentally friendly, affordable housing at a time when mortgage rates are low and moderately priced homes are in short supply,” said Matt Breyer, founder of Crestmont Heritage, in a news release.
The first two townhouses are available immediately and are designed to provide reasonably priced new-construction housing to Berks County residents and support the growth and diversity of the neighborhood.
Each 1,100-square-foot unit is offered at $150,000 and has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, first- floor laundry, a full basement for storage or future additional living space, and off-street parking.
The project supports the environment by using modern modular components where applicable, reducing waste and increasing efficiency, while reducing construction traffic.
“Many people incorrectly assume that modular housing is not of high quality,” said Jeffrey Hogue, a Weichert Homes Realtor in Reading who is representing Crestmont Heritage for the sale of the townhome units.
“The walls and other components are built off site and indoors, away from the weather,” he said. “This allows for more quality control and a superior product.”
Crestmont Heritage is a sister company of Breyer Construction and Landscape, a residential remodeling company in Reading.
