ELLICOTTVILLE, N.Y. – Hillview Mews has launched Phase One of Glen Burn Trail, Ellicottville’s first residential townhome community that combines quality workmanship and thoughtful family-friendly designs with a variety of floor plans and finishing options … and with the added convenience of being only a five-minute walk to the village with its unique shops, restaurants and vibrant night life.

“Hillview Mews has chosen to work with companies with established track records, solid reputations and quality of design and construction have been of utmost importance,” says Cathy Pritchard spokesperson for Team Pritchard, the realtors representing Glen Burn Trail. “In addition, this project has had a strong regional focus including using a local team of engineers, designers, contractors and tradespeople, as well as materials and supplies from this area when possible. For example, Mike Halloran is one of Ellicottville’s most respected builders and the construction team is all from this area. Site design is by CRC Engineering of Ellicottville and both the landscaping company, Custom Turf, and the kitchen and bathroom supplier, Cabinet World, are from Olean.”

The very first home to sell at Glen Burn was purchased by a family that started skiing in Ellicottville four years ago, and decided in their fifth year to buy.

“We looked at a lot of properties and what won us over was the combination of great location and value. In terms of what you get per square foot of living space, in our opinion nothing else in the area comes close to the quality of finishing and detail that Glen Burn Trail offers,” observes Lori Stewart.

Glen Burn Trail consists of 38 two-story townhomes, some of which have views of the ski slopes. There will be 16 buildings in total – 10 duplexes and six triplexes. Garages will be available for all owners of duplexes and owners of the end units in the triplexes. Middle units in the triplexes will have an outdoor storage area. These three- and four-bedroom homes range in size from 1,600–2,080 square feet with construction pricing starting at $250,000.

The interior of these homes include many amenities including open floor plans, high ceilings, oversized windows, elegant kitchens and bathrooms, and master suites, as well as lighted sidewalks and access to the future Ellicottville-Great Valley Trail, a multi-use recreational trail that will connect schools, businesses and merchants throughout the area and will provide a safe, traffic-free way to walk, run, bike or snowshoe. A monthly HOA fee will cover the maintenance of commonly held property.
