Westfield Indiana is a great place to build a custom home.

Why You Should Consider Building A Custom Home in Westfield

By | Custom Homes | No Comments

Westfield, Indiana is one of the best places to build a custom home right now because of the booming community development. Building your custom home in Westfield gives you access to incredible sports events, some of the best dining in the area, and a growing community that is focused on making life better and more fun.

Grand Park

If you or your family is into sports at all, then Grand Park and Westfield are your match made in heaven. Grand Park is a 400 acre sports complex located in the heart of Westfield. You’ll find 26 baseball and softball diamonds; 31 multipurpose soccer, football, rugby, field hockey, and lacrosse fields; and two indoor facilities that allow sports enthusiasts to enjoy playing even when the Indiana winter hits. Not only can you play sports until your heart’s content, but there are plenty of green spaces to enjoy and more than 10 miles of walking/biking trails to explore.

Monon Trail

Speaking of walking/biking trails, another huge reason to consider Westfield for your custom home is the Monon Trail. This trail runs all the way from Westfield down to Indianapolis. While you may not ever explore that far south, you could easily hop on the Monon Trail for a quick morning run or a bike ride with your family. Enjoying nature from the trail is easy and you’ll be connected to nearby communities like Carmel and Broad Ripple.

Restaurant Row

If you start exploring Westfield or talking to the locals, you just might discover Restaurant Row. Located just south of downtown, Park Street is home to a sushi house, pasta destination, and farm-to-table restaurant. But don’t worry, if those aren’t enough restaurants for you, Westfield is also home to some delicious BBQ joints, burger havens, wineries, breweries, and even a bakery featuring a deli.

Nature Center

Does your family love getting out and exploring nature? Then Cool Creek Park is the perfect weekend family outing. Here, you’ll discover activities for every season of the year. Use the park’s shelters for a family picnic, play a game of HORSE on the basketball court, ditch the busyness of everyday life and explore the peace of the woods and wildlife on the four mile trail, or take a guided trail ride on a horse. Plus, in the summertime, you can enjoy an entire concert series.

Does Westfield sound like a great place for you and your family to build a custom home? The custom home builders at Hamilton Homes would love to hear about your ideas and how we can turn your custom home dreams into reality. Contact us to get started.
