C.P. Berry Homes and Alan Berry have donated $156,000 to the Hamilton Housing Trust as part of the company’s development of Patton Ridge on the Patton Homestead property off Asbury Street.
“Thanks to his construction of the Patton Ridge property and his contribution, one or more additional families will be able to afford to live in our wonderful town,” said David Carey, chairman of the Hamilton Affordable Housing Trust.
Patton Ridge is Hamilton’s first ever development under the town’s senior bylaw and will help fund an endowment for the Patton Homestead as well as recreation fields that the town desperately needs, according to Scott Maddern, chairman of the Hamilton Board of Selectmen.
“I’m so proud to accept this check, a direct result of the generous gift of the Patton Homestead to the Town of Hamilton by Mrs. Joanne Patton and her family,” Maddern said.
In addition to the sale price of $1 million, the Hamilton town government will receive more than $150,000 per year from taxes on the homes.
“And with the Patton Board of Directors in place too, as the non-profit for the management and planning of the Homestead, the Town Meeting decisions are really being delivered on,” Maddern said.
