The Villas at Stratford Place and Hamlet Circle

This rapidly growing East Lansing community consists of two and three bedroom ranch condo homes as well as two to four bedroom single family homes, and is located on the theatrically named Hamlet Circle.
The homeowners association provides building maintenance and insurance for condo owners, plus landscaping, lawn care, and snow removal for all owners.  Shared amenities include a clubhouse with large party room, fully equipped kitchen, garden terrace and state-of-the-art exercise facilities.
The secluded location offers access to local stores and restaurants (see Nearby Restaurants) soon to be in easier walking distance with the completion of a new city trail. The southern sector of the community is dedicated conservation land.

New Construction
Fourteen detached homes now under construction - new and exciting designs in clusters of four with shared driveways -- will be completed mid-2014, and several are already under contract. While some of the new designs are single floor, like the existing condominiums, there will also be one and a half and two storey buildings, some with basements.

History                   Parks & Trails

The History of Stratford Place
The community had a sticky beginning when the original developer ran into financial difficulty soon after the completing the first few buildings. However the original concept of a community designed for relaxed living has proved a successful and popular model not only in Michigan but across the US. Now, with a new developer and new designs, homes are again in high demand.

Until recent times the land between Coolidge and Abbott roads consisted of open sod farm. Davis Airport, named after a Lansing aviator of the 1920s, was in the midst. The airport closed in 2000. Lansing Classic Living, purchased the sod farm that was to become site of the Villas at Stratford Place from Chandler Farms in October, 2004. 16 units were built between 2005 and 2006 and became an independent association in 2011. In 2012 the remaining lots were sold to E.L. Holdings, a subsidiary of local builders, Mayberry Homes.

Parks and Trails
City parks and trails are within easy access of Hamlet Circle. The conservation easement along the south side of the development will become part of the City of East Lansing's  Northern Tier Trail, connecting to Abbott Woods Park and providing footpath access to Coolidge Road and Lake Lansing shopping, such as Kroger and Meijer. Construction should begin summer, 2014.City parks and nature trails

The nearby Family Aquatic Center on Abbott Road is only a mile away, the city's Hawks Nest Park is a short walk from Hamlet Circle, accessed from Shearwater Lane on the other side of Coleman Road. At a later date Coleman Road will extend through the existing 127 underpass to bring Eastwood Mall within even easier access.
