Citirama 2014

Witherby Meadows

College Hill

The Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati, in partnership with the City of Cincinnati, is proud to present the 12th Citirama Sept. 13-21, 2014.

The location will be at Witherby Meadows in the historic College Hill neighborhood.

Witherby Meadows is located off of Connecticut Avenue, less than a mile from the College Hill Business District (at North Bend Road and Hamilton Avenue). The new urban community will consist of 24 single family homes on cul-de-sac streets.

Potterhill homes will once again participate in CitiRama, and we will build on lot 14.  The show home is available for pre-sale and is priced in the mid $200,000′s.

Best of all, the home will qualify for a 15 year property tax abatement and be LEED Certified.

Homebuyers who purchase show homes get all of the benefit of a professional interior designer to help design their very own home!

Features of the show home will include:

  • hardwood floors
  • granite countertops (or quartz countertops) and stainless steel appliances
  • stone fireplace
  • Odyssey Plus®: Premium Vinyl Siding
  • a full front porch

Potterhill Homes also includes many standard features such as:

  • 2 x 6 Advanced Framing wall construction for superior energy efficiency
  • Blown Cellulose Insulation
  • R-21 wall insulation value (compared to R-13 or R-15 of other builders)
  • A Home Energy Rating report for every home showing the overall energy savings
  • EnergyStar Certified homes that are on average 30- 50% more energy efficient than other new homes
  • 9′ first floor ceilings
  • 36″ kitchen cabinets (minimum)
  • Craftsman style architecture
  • High Efficiency Light Bulbs (where available by fixture)

10 Reasons to Build New vs Buy Old

Posted By on March 19, 2014

Ten Reasons

build new vs buy used

1. Get Exactly What You Want
When you build your own home, you’re tailoring the house to your life, rather than the other way around. You get to choose the finishes, location of bedrooms and baths to the number of closets. In the existing home market, you’re limited to what’s available – which, given today’s low inventories, might mean settling for a less than ideal layout.

2. Build Where You Want
Building your own home untethers you from established neighborhoods and cookie-cutter developments. Why limit yourself? Potterhill Homes can build on land you own, or in one of our many subdivisions.

3. No Need to Enter the Bidding Wars for Existing Houses
In some areas, the competition for existing homes is red hot and you may find yourself having to offer more money than you anticipated to even be considered by the seller.

4. New Homes are More Energy Efficient
Tighter building envelopes, better insulation, advanced framing techniques, and much more mean a new home has lower energy costs. You also have the opportunity to put in efficient appliances, and even alternative systems like geothermal heat pumps. Did you know Potterhill Homes has the guaranteed lowest energy bills around?

5. Nothing to Clean Up From the Previous Owners
Peeling paint, most, rust, mildew…do you really want a big cleaning project on your hands before you can even move in? Granted, these are issues that can be addressed in a contract, but with a new home you know that everything’s, well, new.

6. No Expensive Kitchen or Bath Remodels Necessary
Remodeling isn’t cheap. An existing home may seem like a bargain, but one you factor in the cost of opening up the kitchen or re-doing that dated bathroom…is it really worth it? With a new home, it’s right from the beginning.

7. Your House, Your Priorities
Want a large island in your kitchen? A sunroom? A three-car garage? Pick a design that boasts your favorite amenities now, instead of trying to fit them into an existing home later.

8. No Lead Paint or Asbestos
In fact, in a new home you can choose practially every material that’s used, from natural-fiber carpet to low-VOC paint.

9. Build for Cost Savings From the Beginning
Lower Energy bills: Potterhill Homes are built to keep energy costs down. In fact, the average new Potterhill Home will save the homeowner over $1,900 each year (= $158 per month!) on energy bills when compared to an existing home.

10. Have a Unique Style
Certain architectural styles might be uncommon in your area. Build New, and you can make your own unique vision a reality.

Our housing consultants are experts in helping homebuyers get exactly
what they want in their new home. Contact one of them today!

International Builders Show

Posted By on March 12, 2014


In February we were in Las Vegas at the International Builder Show! For the first time ever it was combined with the kitchen and bath show so it was an exciting week full of new building products and design ideas. We shared some of the latest and greatest trends in home building on our Facebook Page last week and here are the ones that received the most likes.


This kitchen has Formica countertops that look like carrera marble. 
On trend: grey cabinets.
Brings a whole new meaning to saving your pennies!
So… we bought not one, but two of these shower heads for our own houses. It has an aromatherapy cartridge insert that has vitamin C and comes in three scents: lemon, lavender or eucalyptus. The shower heads use less water and feel great. Visit their website and buy your own!  
 High end appliance manufacturer Viking is going back to the 1970′s! Bringing back both avocado and harvest gold appliances! Viking wall of ovens come in colors galore.
