Just a few miles south of Eau Claire in the rolling landscape of the aptly named town of Pleasant Valley, you’ll find Winterhaven – a peaceful, wooded neighborhood offering privacy and serenity. Winterhaven features 67 lots ranging from one to four acres, providing plenty of room for your dream home, says Cody Filipczak, co-owner of Eau Claire’s C&M Home Builders. Lots in this desirable neighborhood range in price from $40,000 to $70,000, with home costs starting at about $300,000.
Winterhaven will appeal to families looking for plenty of space or empty nesters who desire top-of-the-line homes that are secluded yet close to the city, Filipczak said. Shopping and dining options are just three miles down Highway 93 on Eau Claire’s south side, and Winterhaven is located just a few swings of the club away from Hickory Hills Golf Course.
If you want a sneak peak at what Winterhaven will look like in the future, visit the nearby Trillium neighborhood, also developed by C&M. While the last lot was recently sold in Trillium, the neighborhood has the look and feel of what Winterhaven will eventually embody.
Because of its rolling topography, Winterhaven promises to be a scenic neighborhood with plenty of building options, including walkout lots.
While C&M is selling the lots at Winterhaven, it isn’t the development’s exclusive builder, meaning future homeowners can work with any builder they wish. However, choosing C&M can add efficiencies to a project, Filipczak noted. The C&M website offers a wide menu of floor plans to choose from, but if you have other ideas the company’s in-house drafting and design team will help you customize to your heart’s content. As one of the biggest and busiest home builders in the Chippewa Valley, C&M has the experience to create the home you want. C&M-built homes are energy efficient, and the builder specializes in custom cabinets, hardwood and tile floors, stamped and colored concrete, and an array of customizable selections and finishes.
Filipczak said his family-run firm prides itself on attentive service, and both customers and other businesses have noticed. C&M’s recent accolades include being named Small Business of the Year for 2017 by the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce and placing No. 1 in the Best Home Construction category of Volume One’s 2018 Best of the Chippewa Valley Reader Poll.
For Filipczak, however, the biggest reward of building homes is “moving people into a new home and seeing the finished product – how good they look in the end.”
