Epcon Adding Attached Homes to 3 Columbus Communities

Ohio-based developer expands maintenance-free living choices.

Thirty years ago, Ed Bacome and Phil Fankhauser launched Epcon Communities, with the goal of providing high-quality, maintenance-free living. The attached concept was successful. In 2008, they moved to building communities of single-family detached homes. Now, the company has returned to its roots, as they prepare to break ground on sections for attached homes in three Columbus area Epcon communities.

The Courtyards on Hoover in Grove City and The Courtyards at Hidden Ravines in Lewis Center will soon feature areas with attached homes, in addition to the detached homes that have already been built in these two Epcon neighborhoods. A third community, The Courtyards at Jerome Village, is in the planning stages for Dublin, and will also include attached homes.

“We wanted to offer our customers a greater variety of home plans from which to choose. Our new home plans create home styles that are fresh and new,” says Phil Fankhauser, who co-founded Epcon Communities with Ed Bacome in 1986. “The new, attached designs are as handsome on the outside as they are on the inside.”

The new selection of attached homes will feature the same amenities as other Epcon homes—single-story living with abundant space, island kitchen, private courtyard, oversized two-car garage, and access to all of the community’s amenities, including a spacious clubhouse.

A total of 20, duplex-style homes are planned for The Courtyards on Hoover. Epcon offers the choice of two homes, the Alston and the Berton, with 1,470 and 1,635 square feet, respectively. The Courtyards at Hidden Ravines is adding 26 attached homes, with the choice of the Cala (1,546 square feet), Ellsworth (1,723), and Haven (1,917). New homebuyers will have the ability to add a second-floor bonus suite to any of these plans, providing almost 500 square feet of extra living space.

Fankhauser says the choice of the attached homes gives homebuyers the quality of the Epcon experience at a price that is more affordable.

“Due to the economies of scale in building attached homes, we are able to offer exciting new designs at a somewhat lower price point, which enables us to serve more customers,” Fankhauser explains.

Since their beginning three decades ago, Epcon has built more than 28,000 homes in over 28 states, with 25 communities in Ohio alone. For more information about the expanding neighborhoods with attached home offerings, call (614) 761-1010 or visit http://www.epconcommunities.com.
