Crews put the finishing touches on homes in the Villas at Summerlyn Lakes, a subdivision in Lambertville on Smith Road, west of Secor. Developed by builder Scott Bollin in 2008, the Villas at Summerlyn Lakes is a 103-lot project that completed its 40-home first phase, is finishing up its second phase, and has begun selling lots in its third. Villas feature two or three-bedroom condos of 1,500 to 1,800 square feet and cost between $205,000 and $295,000. A companion piece nearby, the Reserve at Summerlyn, features single-family homes.
