Villa Cambrian - Parker house In the Houge Park area of Cambrian, you’ll see an area identified as Parker on many online maps. The actual name of the subdivision there is Villa Cambrian, though – funny how disconnected they are from each other!

There are 153 houses in Villa Cambrian, which were built between 1960 and 1965. They range in size from 1222 SF to 2800 SF, and most homes  are around 1222 -1457 square feet. The lots or parcels run from the smallest size of 5509 SF to more than 10,000 SF; most are less than 7000 SF, though.

Something unique and much appreciated by privacy lovers: all but 1 are single story houses.

Cambrian home buyers are drawn to this Parker neighborhood for many reasons, among them these:

  • very tidy neighborhood, most homes are well-kept
  • fantastic Union schools (Carlton, Union, and Leigh)
  • the close proximity of Houge Park
  • the ease of getting onto either Highway 85 or Highway 17
  • the convenience of nearby shopping, too (at Camden and Union, especially)
  • especially accessible to Harker’s preschool and to Xilinx

Perhaps most of all, this little pocket seems to be more affordable than many areas with the same schools. It appears to be a good opportunity for the money.   I suspect it’s a little less costly because the schools are not as close as some parents would prefer.

Villa Cambrian - Parker area home

What does it cost to buy a home in Villa Cambrian or the Parker area of Cambrian?

In general, as of late October 2016, most homes are selling right around $1 mil with sales from $950K to $1.08 mil over the last year.

Every area has some challenges.  What are they here?

Some homes may be really close to either Highway 85, which can be noisy. The preschool is adjacent, too, but I have not heard any noise from there on my many visits to the neighborhood, so not sure that’s a negative at all.

Structurally, the houses were built with acoustic or “popcorn” ceilings, which today’s buyers don’t love (however they are not hard to remove if you do it before moving in). Some homes have Zincsco electric panels, which many home owners may have replaced (and if not, a new buyer may want to do that).
