A new development is starting in the Sedgefield area, where $500,000-and-up houses are replacing modest, one-story duplexes.

David Weekley Homes paid about $2.3 million for much of the land on Belton Street, just east of South Boulevard, property records show. The company is building a new development there through its Central Living division, which focuses on high-density, for-sale housing.

A model home is under construction. The development will include 41 houses: Five single-family and 36 “paired villas,” or upscale duplexes. The paired villas will range in size from 2,500 to 3,100 square feet.

The model home should be open in late January, featuring a covered porch, as well as an “owner’s retreat” with private balcony and a standalone tub.

David Weekley is promoting the area’s walkability and proximity to grocery stores, restaurants and other entertainment options to promote the development.
