AUBURN — The quiet and serenity of a countryside setting has been drawing homebuyers to West Acres at Ulleland. The close-in neighborhood of 20 estate-size homes is located in east Auburn and features acreage lots that range in size from 3.5 to 6 acres.

“When you’re out here, you get the feeling of being away from everything, out of the hustle of the city in a quiet wooded setting where you can enjoy your home, your family and your life, but still be close enough to all the services and everything you need,” says Josh Schneider with Schneider Family Homes, the builder behind the collection.

Schneider notes that a portion of each of the sites was left untouched, in its natural state. “We wanted to work with the beauty of the land. The result is a neighborhood that is authentic in look and feel,” says Schneider.

The homes range in size from 2,800 to 4,500 square feet and are available as rambler or two-story designs.

Wide-planked engineered hardwood flooring stretches throughout the main living areas, and quartz and granite grace the countertops.
