In an innovative twist on traditional networking events, the Galion-Crestline Area Chamber of Commerce recently hosted its “Chamber Chat” at a prime example of local development and investment—the newly constructed single-family home on Winchester Road. This event, part of a series designed to engage and inform Chamber members about significant local projects, marked a departure from its usual meeting spaces, taking attendees directly to the heart of what’s new in Galion’s housing market.

A Closer Look at Galion’s Newest Addition

The property, a project undertaken by the Galion Port Authority, stands as a testament to the city’s growth and the potential for future residential expansion. The ranch-style home, which boasts a price tag of $299,000, is just the beginning of what could potentially become a 21-home development in the Renschville site. This initial 1,339 square-foot home features three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, an attached two-car garage, and a full basement, setting a high standard for what’s to come.

Community Engagement and Potential

The “Chamber Chat” event followed a public open house and a preview for city officials, underscoring the community’s interest in this development. The strong attendance at these events highlights the local community’s keen interest in the growth and development of Galion’s residential options.

The new home represents a significant investment in the local housing market by the Galion Port Authority, which plans to start construction on a second house at the same site within the month. The development’s potential to include up to 21 homes signals a significant boost to the local economy and housing market.

Features and Amenities That Set the Standard

Built by 89 Homes from Jeromesville, Ohio, the property sits on a quarter-acre lot and is designed with modern living in mind. Its open-concept layout includes a kitchen, dining area, and great room, ideal for family gatherings and entertainment. The master bedroom features a double bowl vanity, tiled shower, and walk-in closet, offering a touch of luxury and convenience. Two additional bedrooms provide flexibility for families, with potential for one to serve as a home office. The inclusion of a half bath, laundry room, and two-car garage adds to the home’s appeal, while the large front porch and rear concrete patio offer outdoor living spaces.
