Village Greene in Bensalem Pa a Place I Can Call Home

Village Greene corner lot

When I worked at the Re/Max office in Bensalem the Builders representatives came into the office with plans for a new development called Village Greene . It was being Built next to the Bensalem Country Club and Golf Course . It would have gas heat and the floor plans had every thing I wanted in a single home . There was a similar development in New Jersey where I could see the sample house . So off I went for a ride . This was the house I wanted  . It had high ceilings in the living room and dining room . Open floor plan in the Kitchen and family room and a den perfect for an office . The bathroom had a large bathtub and a stall shower .  This was the house I wanted  . We picked a corner lot on the highest  part of the development in phase two . Phase one was on the main highway .  I was so excited I had never purchased new construction . That was twenty nine years ago

 

 

 

There were so many problems before we moved in . There was a street light laying across our lawn . The street was covered with mud and dirt . The bathroom fixture in the bathroom tub didn't even clear the tub when turned on the water poured all over the floor When we looked in the heating vents there were coffee cups and soda cans in them . I marched myself over to the township and asked how they could give avillage greene when it snowed use and occupancy permit to this property .  The inspector listened and said he would meet me there the following day . He was infuriated when he saw these conditions and closed the builder down .

 

Needless to say I was now not this builders favorite person . He had to clean the streets of all the mud,dirt and debris . He also had to connect the electrical street light . The faucet had to be replaced with one that cleared the tub . All the heating vents had to be cleaned of trash and debris and a certification supplied .

 

The neighbors thought I was related to the builder . Later when I sold other houses in this development my buyers received a gift certificate to the King George Inn . I asked why I did not receive one although I knew why  . I was told I should buy a house here . When I said I did they made a call .  Then they looked at me and said this was something that was not extended to me .

 

 

village greene bensalem holidays

I lived in Village Greene with my children for many years . Then my children were grown and moved out . When I decided the house was to large for me and was going to downsize  my daughter and her family purchased the home . It makes me happy to be able to still spend holidays at this home in Village Greene . It warms my heart . There are so many memories in this house   My daughter and son-in law are raising their children in this house .They have been there for at least ten years and have made improvements to fit their needs . It feels nice to know for now it will still be home for me .

 

 I have always lived in the Philadelphia and Bensalem area .
