September 27, 2019

The quality lifestyle you’ve been waiting for is waiting for you. Come and explore the urban experience of Blue Heron Pond Townhomes in Ann Arbor. Live in a Norfolk Homes brand new construction townhome, with upscale comforts, and the city’s best diversions just steps away.

Check out some of the places that are within easy walking distance of Blue Heron Pond Townhomes.

Here’s what’s brewing

Are craft beers your thing? We’ve got three breweries nearby for an Uber-free indulgence.

Townies Brewery—What’s not to like at a place that has beers named Heffalumps & Woozles, Snow White’s Addiction, and Romp in the Hayloft? And it’s less than a block from Blue Heron Pond.

HOMES Brewery—Named for the Great Lakes (Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior), this popular pub pours superb beers—like King Cold Brew with Kenyan coffee. Get it on tap and growlers to go, along with Asian-influenced food. And feel free to bring your dog to the beer garden.

Wolverine State Brewing Co.—Lager lovers love Wolverine, Michigan’s only all-lager microbrewery. Treat yourself to an ever-changing menu (like Shiny New Toy, Snakes on a Shamrock, and Drag Me to Helles), along with flagship favorite brown, amber, light, and India Pale lagers.

Local foodie favorites

What are you in the mood for? Luckily, you don’t have to go far to satisfy your appetite.

Chela’s Restaurant & Taqueria—Just cross the street from Blue Heron Pond and settle in for some of Ann Arbor’s most authentic Mexican food. 

Zingerman’s Roadhouse—In Ann Arbor, it’s legendary, going far beyond the claim of “really good american food” on the restaurant’s sign. With produce from local farms, fresh fish, the best baked goods around, and so much more, wouldn’t it be great to be so close to Zingerman’s?

Bell’s Diner—Feel like some really good kimchi? Maybe a Reuben or even a great, big breakfast? Imagine you can get deli, Korean, burgers, and a full breakfast menu all in one place. Bell’s Diner is a local gem with free local delivery to Blue Heron Pond Townhomes.

Seva Restaurant—For 46 years, this restaurant has been catering to vegetarians with an outstanding menu that also includes gluten-free selections. Weekly specials, to-die-for desserts, and a creative array of lunch and dinner specialties make it worth the walk (but feel free to drive). 

Barry’s Bagels—Fresh baked up the road on Jackson Avenue! Slather your favorite flavor with cream cheese, pile on the lox, or choose a stacked sandwich. Either way, we agree with Barry that “everything is better on a bagel.”

Star’s Cafe—For something a little different, how about Middle Eastern fare? Dine in or have it delivered to your townhome.

Nearby necessities

What else do you need to feel right at home? How about a few of these shops near your Blue Heron Pond home?

Plum Market—Organic, locally grown produce—including some hard-to-find varieties—free-range poultry, non-GMO meats, artisanal cheeses, in-store bakery, and restaurant-caliber cuisine to go are all just steps away.  

Nicola’s Books—Bibliophiles unite at this independent bookstore. Local authors and book signings are a regular feature. The events calendar presents unique opportunities for kids and adults to feed their natural curiosities.

When you want to spruce our your townhome, HomeGoods and Kirkland’s are wonderfully close to our community.

And don’t forget that the bus stops here, taking you around the city.

Low interest rates

With the current low interest rates, right now is a great time to buy a new home. Stop paying rent! Don’t wait to get started on your future. Contact us at Norfolk Homes to see the last phase in our beautiful, low-maintenance townhomes for sale in Ann Arbor.

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