Blackburn Woods offers wooded lots within the city of Athens, providing home owners with city services and easy access to downtown and Ohio University. Blackburn Woods provides a rich variety of sites, ranging from spectacular hilltop views to quiet wooded hideaways. We believe homes should be designed to suit their occupant’s lifestyle and personal needs. We build homes that use materials and resources wisely, minimizing costs for the homeowner and treading lightly on the earth. Efficient use of space and energy and achieving low operating costs is a top priority in constructing our homes. Our site development maintains as much vegetation as possible, creating a natural buffer between residences. We work closely with architects to integrate design elements into homes, allowing for great flexibility in sizes and style while maintaining a unified look to the neighborhood. Elements such as roof pitch, useable front porches, siding and trim details, garage location, and window type are all important factors we review with the home owners. Detached garages, photovoltaic panels, super insulation, and geothermal heating systems are among our offerings.
