Visitors will marvel at the gently rolling hills and graceful trees that give Willows Bend a special serenity.  You would never guess how close it is to everything...only 1/2 mile to I-275.  There are 94 custom estate homes and lifestyle homes sites.  It was developed by Hal Homes.  Amenities include a community pool and pool house, play area for children and tennis courts.

As I toured the homes, there were features that were new within the last several years.  First of all, outdoor living spaces continue to expand and give you fun ideas for family entertaining.  Along with that, the lower level play spaces provide unlimited fun, from elaborate wet bars to full movie theaters including the dereqour pool tables and pinball machines.The foyer from the garage has expanded to include storage for children's backpacks and coats.

Enjoy some of the pictures I took of features I particularly enjoyed. And, call the Cincinnati Team if you are interested in purchasing a Cincinnati Homearama 2012 Home or investigating the possibility of building with one of this year's builders.
