Cherry Hill

Hardwood forests are the centerpeice for one of Valparaiso’s newer subdivisions called Cherry Hill. Located off 250 West on the northeast side of Valparaiso, Cherry Hill offers over permit ready lots and several completed single family homes.  The neighborhood has a restored woodland area with a mature forest and pond, and a collection of more small ponds and trails on the west section of the 160 acres.  Upon completion of phases I and II, Cherry Hill will feature over 58 acres of parkland.  Good sized lots, rolling vistas, city water and sewer, and Valparaiso schools are a few of the many things attracting buyers to this new development. Lot owners can “bring your own builder”. Vaughn Staab, developer of Cherry Hill and owner of BlueStone Homes, cites the park-like setting, easy commute, and attractiveness of Valparaiso for relocation as some of the many reasons he created Cherry Hill. Cherry Hill is currently offering special rates for financing and low downpayments on lots and homes through DeMotte State Bank, one of the area’s most active local mortgage lending banks.
