  1. Have You Seen Venango Trails?

    It is easy to see why Venango Trails is popular this fall — the community has so much to offer. Here are the three things that we love most about it.


    It Feels Far from the City

    Venango Trails has tree-lined streets and sidewalks that meander through the community, providing plenty of space for family walks or bike rides. There are even, as the name implies, some wonderful trails for jogging in the cool mornings and evenings — as soon as those arrive!

    We certainly can’t forget Venango Lake, which can be seen in the video. For those of us who chased tadpoles as children, it is a wonderful opportunity to be able to provide the same thing for our kids.


    While Being Easily Accessible

    For how far Venango Trails feels from the busy city, the community is incredibly accessible. It is located next to Cranberry Township near the intersection of  I-79 and I-79. Getting there and away is wonderfully simple, especially if your morning commute takes you toward the city. It is only a quick 20 minutes!

    We also have to mention the schools. Venango Trails has access to North Allegheny School District, a top district in the state of Pennsylvania!


    And It Includes A Lot of Luxury

    All that Venango Trails has to offer comes with the standard luxuries of a Heartland home. We are talking about gourmet kitchens, granite bathrooms, beautiful floors and spacious ceilings. Learn more about all of the luxury included in each home.

  3. Two Model Grand Openings in Marshall Township

    Looking for a small town lifestyle with an uptown twist? A robust community full of luxurious upgrades with the tranquility and privacy of living in the suburbs without sacrificing the amenities of the city? Look no further.

    The relative hustle and bustle of Marshall Township fades away as you pull into Venango Trails. Far enough away for peace, quite, and plenty of green spaces, yet only a couple of minutes drive from the Cranberry Commons shopping center, Venango Trails is truly a chameleon community. The exceptional Venango Trails is built around what is already present. And what is already beautiful. Tranquil lakes and ponds. Acres of woodlands. And a historic Native American Indian trail. What was once a golf course has been transformed into a neighborhood with a rhythm all its own. With cozy front porches. Tree-lined sidewalks. Parks made for playing. Clusters of traditional homes. And a bustling village at the center of it all. Other new homes in the area can’t offer this combination of convenience, beauty and exclusivity.

    Featuring a new luxury townhome and single-family home designs. Its accessibility isn’t just limited to a floor plan, however, since its location means it has everything a prospective homeowner wants within reach. Located just a stone’s throw from I-79, homeowners can expect a pleasant commute north to Cranberry for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Businesspeople will be even more pleased with the commute into Pittsburgh, just a quick drive down the highway, and with the shortest commute on tap in the area to boot.

    The decorated Abingshire model and the decorated John Jacob Astor model at Venango Trails are hosting their Grand Openings on Sunday, June 1st from noon until 4pm!
