Emerald Park, 44 Single Family Homes, Farmington Hills, MI
This 20 acre site is located on an infill parcel in the heart of one of the most attractive residential communities in Southeast, MI.

With one of the few new home communities available in Farmington Hills, Emerald Park is certain to experience strong demand from interested home buyers in this area.
Newport Estates, 187 Lot Single Family Community, Newport, MI
This 187 lot community, which was constructed in three phases, is now sold out. The homes at Newport range in size from 1,500 sf to 2,100 sf and range in price from the mid-$100s to the low $200s. Designed to provide attractive new homes at affordable prices, Newport appealed well to both first-time home buyers and move-up home buyers.
The site plan at Newport consists of 65 ft. lots with a centralized area for mail boxes and a play park. By clustering mail boxes in one area and creating a common park amenity, we have eliminated the street clutter from a multitude of mailbox styles and colors and tried to minimize the need for each homeowner to invest in backyard swing sets and play structures.
Newport Estates is the most successful residential development in Monroe County. With a tax millage rate that is one of the lowest in southeast Michigan, and a location that benefits from being in the attractive Airport School District, the community continues to appeal to homebuyers seeking quality and affordability in their home buying decision.

Knowland Estates, Canton, MI
Great schools and a great location made Knowland Estates a very desirable single family community. The site consists of 75 homes on 70 ft. lots. The site was developed in a single phase with all homes sold within two years after opening the model sales office. A second phase with 14 homes was added at a later date with the purchase of a small parcel immediately adjacent to the site. This second phase, Knowland on the Court, was very successful with significant economies of scale from its proximity to Knowland Estates.
California Housing Activity
Sherr Development has developed residential land and constructed over one thousand homes in southern California. Working with a local builder, SDC was able to identify attractive residential sites outside of LA County and build multiple residential communities. The development activity in California spanned an approximate ten year period from 1998 to 2008. Each site consisted of 50 to 300 homes with prices and floorplans targeted toward first-time homebuyers. All land development activity has now been completed and all homes on developed lots have been constructed and sold. As SDC continues to hold several parcels of undeveloped land in southern California, development and construction activity may begin again as market conditions permit.
