A new housing subdivision, called Millwood Landing, is coming soon to the Minden area. The project was developed by Micah Hanson, senior vice president of b1Bank, and Chad Still, owner of TImberland Services LLC.
“Chad Still and I started a real estate holding company in 2008. We have bought and sold several properties over the years,” said Micah Hanson. “The housing supply in Minden is limited. The diverse geography, Kisatchie National Forest and Camp Minden are all unique attributes of South Webster Parish. However, this can create obstacles for new home builders.
Millwood Landing will be located on Hwy 532, between I-20 and Hwy 80. This location was carefully selected with several factors in mind.
“The property’s location was chosen for its proximity to the city of Minden and its ease of access to Interstate 20,” said Hanson. “Enabling homeowners who may work east or west of Webster Parish to commute quickly every day.
“This is considered Minden and is outside the city limits. Electricity will be supplied by Entergy via an underground service. CenterPoint Energy will supply natural gas. Water will be supplied by the Dixie Overland Water System.
The property name was chosen as a tribute to the new sawmill Hunt Forest Products is building in Bienville Parish.
“The new sawmill currently under construction in Taylor, Louisiana is something we believe will spur economic growth in the Minden area. We chose this name to recognize the positive impact this new industry will have,” said Hanson.
Millwood Landing will consist of 52 parcels, each of at least 1 acre, as well as landscaped areas and a small family park. The price will start from the low $60,000 and go to the high $70,000.
Once the weather allows for road construction to begin, the roads are expected to be finished in 60-90 days. Subsequently, the lots will be surveyed and put up for sale.
“We have a list of potential buyers to contact on a first come, first serve basis,” Hanson said. “Anyone interested can contact us directly. We are also available to provide site tours to anyone before work begins. This will answer any questions potential buyers may have regarding the “buildability” or appearance of the lots.
“We are currently working with our attorney on the subdivision agreements. We will start pre-selling the lots once the agreements are finalized and archived.
Once you purchase a lot, you can hire your favorite construction company to build your new home.
“Buyers will be able to use their own contractors,” Hanson said. “Plans will need to be approved by the Architectural Supervisory Board before construction begins. We also talked to several local builders considering lots for building specific homes.
“Our intentions are to develop a clean, safe, family-friendly atmosphere for homeowners of all ages,” said Hanson.
