Does anyone have any experience or opinions about Potter Hill Homes? We're looking at the development in Lebanon. I think they look great but do not know anyone who has bought and built with them. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Sorry.. don't know anything about Potter Hill Homes... We just moved to Lebanon (just outside the city) from Michigan, and I can say that Lebanon itself is a very nice area so far..

Where's the development at? South, North? Just curious.. if I hear anything about it (from neighbors or whomever) I'll come back to post..

Apparently, no one has heard anything about Potter Hill since I've gotten no replies!!

The development we're looking at is called Walnut Hills and it's right in Lebanon. Off of Monroe Rd, I can't remember which side streets you take to get back there, but you have to wind through an older subdivision and it's tucked in the back where you'd never know it was there. There are maybe 8-10 homes already built and they're opening another phase soon.

We've been in Lebanon for a few weeks now, and really like it. We're renting for 6-9 months to take our time and learn the area before we buy a new home! Let me know if you hear anything. I appreciate you're help.

Well at least I feel better now for not knowing anything!! LOL!! We were looking at homes last summer, and I thought I'd looked into most of the local and even national (with local representation) builders very thoroughly -- but I hadn't heard of Potter Hill. Either they were new to the market, above my price range (very possible!), or were in other areas of Cinci, but not yet in Butler/Warren counties where we were looking.

I've heard good things about the Walnut Hills development however - even if I haven't heard of the builder. I wonder - did they start the development, or did they go in there after another builder pulled out? Ryland, Ryan, Beazer (and others!) have pulled out of some developments in the area, so its possible that Walnut Hills was originally supposed to be someone else's baby...

Glad to know there's more "new blood" coming to the Lebanon area. Eventually perhaps we'll get enough newbies that we'll get some more restaurant choices!! Not that Docs and the Tin Duck are bad (we like them both), but options would be appreciated! Have you tried Whit's custard yet? A little pricey, but very tasty! And - the only thing open downtown (besides Docs) until 9pm!!! Streetlife!!

Again, if I hear anything specific - I'll try to repost. Until then good luck with the home buying, having just made that commitment this Spring, I know how hectic building can be!

The Walnut Hills development is definitely all Potter Hill homes. They are very distinct in design, so you know they aren't from a different builder. I don't know when they started building there.

More choices in restaurants would be nice, we feel the same way. We have tried Whit's and thinks it's very tasty! Have you tried Seeger's yet? We went once and I wasn't too impressed but am hoping it was just my choice of sandwich and maybe other items are better.

Thanks for the input!

I have not heard of the PH Homes development in Lebanon, but I have heard of these builders from Passport to New Homes on tv. I believe their specialty is designing homes that fit in with the original architecture of the surrounding area, such as the Mills of Carthage development( not sure of name there), where they designed smaller bungalow-style homes than were more in tune with the existing neighborhood. I also believe they are somewhat known for their energy-efficient homes, such as using enerygy-star appliances and receiving different "good" energy ratings as far as insulation, etc. That's about all I can remember, but I remember thinking that finally here was a builder offering homes that weren't so cookie-cutter.
