Cornwell Farms: Country living so close to Downtown Ann Arbor

February 10, 2020

Just outside the city limit of Ann Arbor, the scenery switches from an elegantly urban landscape to something more pastoral. Here, Norfolk Homes has begun a community of estate homes on rolling hills. Cornwell Farms presents you with the charm of country living, yet so close to Downtown Ann Arbor.

Picture your new home with all the exquisite details and appointments that reflect Norfolk Homes’ standard. Imagine a spacious lot that affords scenic views. And then envision a neighborhood with just 27 homes, an intimate community where you know your neighbors but maintain the privacy you want.

That’s Cornwell Farms.

Just across the border into Ann Arbor Township, Norfolk Homes is developing a picturesque community. Cornwell Farms features spacious and unique homesites. As you wind through the neighborhood, you’ll see the rolling hills and large yards with scenic views of the natural landscapes. Norfolk Homes has assembled a portfolio of 1- and 2-story floor plans that span almost 2,500 to nearly 3,700 square feet of artfully appointed space. Beginning with the exceptional curb appeal of the exteriors, there are so many ways to personalize the details, like combination of siding materials and colors that define your exterior. 

The floor plans are designed to maximize the flow and use of space. An open concept in the main living area is a must. The kitchen is always designed to accommodate the critical aspects for this space—storage, workspace, and beauty. Then, we created an owner’s suite that pampers, providing the oasis you deserve. And the secondary bedrooms are anything but “secondary” in planning. Placement and size are important for every bedroom, from the master to a guest room.

A home in the country

Ann Arbor is a beautiful college town with so much to offer and consistently ranked among the best cities to live in America! This city provides a balanced mix of urban amenities and natural parks, maintaining a dynamic, small-town feel fit for all lifestyles. So easy to get around, the heart of the Ann Arbor provides an abundance of shopping, first-rate museums, galleries, theaters, and music venues. Food-lovers will enjoy fantastic dining experiences, and recreationalists can partake in all kinds of outdoor activities in Ann Arbor's many parks, abundant lakes, and the Huron River. Golf is one of the area's most popular recreational activities, with one of the highest concentrations of golf courses in the nation. Of course, the University of Michigan expands all of these opportunities for enjoyment, including the Big  House where the Division I Wolverines draw massive crowds to their football games. 

Just over the border in Ann Arbor Township, Cornwell Farms is an ideal community for professionals to live and work. The prime location allows residents to enjoy lower property  taxes and scenic country living while being just a few minutes away from the city. At Norfolk Homes, we have 13 homesites available, including a move-in ready home for sale at 1006 Cornwell Drive.

I would definitely buy another property from this group! Wonderful design and superb construction! Hope they build in Northeast Ann Arbor (again)!
