One of the largest and most sought-after neighborhoods in Plymouth Township is Ridgewood Hills. Bounded by the East side of Ridge Rd. between Ann Arbor Rd. and Powell sits this well-established subdivision containing almost 400 homes, all varying in style and size. The styles you’ll see as you drive down the streets of Ridgewood Hills are classic Colonials, refined Cape Cods (1st Floor Master bedrooms), and spacious, single floor Ranches all on generous lots surrounded by mature trees. Popular features include sizable bedrooms, finished lower levels, rear yard deck spaces, cathedral ceilings, and formal dining & living spaces.


Back in the 1940’s before Ridgewood Hills Subdivision existed, the land was host to the Brinks Family Farm. The Farm was actually a heavily wooded expanse of land. The lots on Hillcrest Court West and Harvest Court sold for premium prices due to the fact that trees were removed sparingly for the construction of the homes we see today. Much of what’s left of the original farm and it’s woods still exist in the 6 common park areas that are available to all residents of Ridgewood Hills.

The demand for this neighborhood has been consistent. In fact, the highest sale price in Ridgewood Hills was a 4 bedroom, magnificently updated colonial for $412,000! It sold in November 2012 just before the market sprang back to life in Plymouth Township. In 2013, the average selling price in the neighborhood was just over $340,000. The first homes were built in 1978 and growth continued until the last went up in 1989.meadowct4x6

Oh, the places you’ll go! With downtown Plymouth, Northville and Ann Arbor being just minutes down the road, the residents of Ridgewood Hills are always close to shopping, dining, and entertainment. Many people are drawn to Ridgewood Hills for this reason. There is plenty of space to play or walk the dog in the 6 vast parks throughout the neighborhood and even opportunities for side jobs that can be posted on the association website. Elementary-age kids going to public school will attend Bird Elementary and move on to West Middle School. The Plymouth-Canton Educational Park, or PCEP, is comprised of all 3 public high schools for the area and the school your child attends is based on a lottery. Of course there are also plenty of outstanding private schools in the area!

The neighborhood association also has an excellent website dedicated to the community and residents. If you’re looking for someone to cut your grass or shovel your snow, see the “RH Kids for Hire” tab for bios and contact info.
