Madeira: Attracting a Village

starring:

Scott Lucke, Robert Lucke Group

— Young buyers join the neighborhood at Camargo Ridge, upscale community linking Indian Hill to Madeira, potentially the fastest-selling project in Robert Lucke Group history

— Urban Living meets country charm: Younger buyers embracing old-school features. Robert Lucke Group offering homes starting at $650,000, up to $3 million.

[CITY OF MADEIRA, Ohio ~ October 7, 2016] Reflecting a national trend of younger, Millennial-aged home buyers drifting a tad further from the urban core, the city of Madeira has emerged – specifically, the Camargo Ridge development bordering Indian Hill – as a new hot spot for the next generation.

Madeira is made for Millenials,” says Joe Linz, vice president and partner at Star ONE Realtors Inc., the marketing agent working in tandem with the builder of Camargo Ridge, Robert Lucke Group. Camargo Ridge was recently featured in The Cincinnati Business Courier.

You don’t always have buyers in their 30s moving into a neighborhood with an entrance price of $650,000, but Camargo Ridge is not your everyday community, which is reflected in the incredible demand that we’ve seen for our lots,” Linz said.

Late this summer, the RLGStar ONE team notched a major milestone by surpassing the 50 percent sold mark, a little less than one year after the streets were opened.

At the third-generation Robert Lucke Group – building homes throughout Greater Cincinnati for more than a half-century – Camargo Ridge could end up being the fastest-selling community in the company’s history, dating back to 1953.

We were looking for something that was closer to the old neighborhood feel, that village concept, which is why we started looking at Madeira in the first place. Camargo Ridge gave us that feeling immediately,” said Chris D., a Camargo Ridge buyer along with his wife, Linda D. (last names withheld to protect privacy).

There aren’t many places left in Cincinnati where you can still get that, but this is one of them.”

Camargo Ridge from The Robert Lucke Group: Midway Between the Flight from Suburbia to Downtown

We came from suburbia, a 250-home neighborhood in Mason, and that was great, as was Mason, but we were just looking for something different now,” Linda D. added.

We had always heard about the reputation of the Robert Lucke Group. Put that together with Camargo Ridge …. and I think we just got Lucke,” her hubby joked.

When we first stumbled across Camargo Ridge, it was just a hillside and some trees, but credit the Robert Lucke Group and Star ONE for doing such a great job of visualizing what this could be,” said John C., another Camargo Ridge buyer, along with his wife, Shelly B. (last name also withheld, per privacy concerns).

Working with the Robert Lucke Group has taken, what is considered to be a nightmare for most people, building your own custom home, but for us, it was an absolute joy to work with Scott (Lucke) and his people,” John C. continued.

When most people hear you’re building a home, the first thing they say is, ‘Oh, I feel so sorry for you.’ But we found that to be the exact opposite,” said John C.

Their contractors were highly professional. There was such incredible coordination throughout the building process. From the first day, to the day they handed us the keys, they were a well-oiled machine, with activity it seems every single day. They kept us informed and updated throughout the entire process. The Robert Lucke Group never lost sight of making us part of the process, and remember that we were the homeowners, and they wanted us to feel absolutely wonderful about our new home,” John C. said.

Custom Homes from The Robert Lucke Group starting at $650,000

Camargo Ridge is tucked between Madeira and Indian Hill at the corner of Camargo Road and Shawnee Ridge.

Located a few miles from Kenwood and Interstate 71 – as well as providing excellent access to Madison Road and the rest of East Side Cincinnati – Robert Lucke Group and Star ONE are offering custom homes starting at $650,000, to upwards of $3 million.

The embrace that the market has extended to Camargo Ridge has been incredible,” added Linz from Star ONE.

Linz and his team at Star ONE have been on the Camargo Ridge development team since the project was conceived, having provided invaluable land acquisition expertise to RLG.

Older buyers will always be looking to downsize, and we’re had a tremendous reception from that segment of the market, but it does appear that we’re seeing more Millennials looking for this product,” Linz says.

IN CONCLUSION: FROM THE BUYER

I would put builders in three categories,” concluded Chris D.

There are some builders, about whom you hear nothing but negative.

“There are many, many others about whom you’ll hear both good and bad.

“It’s the very rare few that I would put in the category of the Robert Lucke Group, which is, all you ever hear about that company and their people is good.”

Hand-Crafting Hi-End Housing:

Still A Hit at Robert Lucke Group

In Madeira, Butler County and at Rivercrest in Warren, Robert Lucke Group continues the craft of 60+ years of custom home building with million-dollar subdivisions

Camargo Ridge in Madeira prices start at $699,000 and escalate to $2-3 million.

r: Development strategy secures key infill sites in upscale locations.

Also Arriving: The Villages at Four Bridges in Liberty Township, Rivercrest in Warren County.

[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ January xx, 2014] The Robert Lucke Group has unveiled a string of new custom home projects across the Tri-State, led by Camargo Ridge, a $15 million development on a rolling hillside in Madeira where the third-generation builder is hand-crafting homes priced between $699,000 and $3 million.

Camargo Ridge will have a formal groundbreaking for the 15-home development in early 2015; but in the meantime, the seasoned professionals at Robert Lucke Group (www.robertluckegroup.com) are looking for buyers, based on a legacy that’s buoyed the third-generation Symmes Township builder since its founding in 1952.

The homes in Camargo Ridge will be built under a master development plan that allows us to maintain the Robert Lucke Group level of high quality, craftsmanship and style,” said Scott Lucke, company president.

Our strategy, as a custom builder, is to find these smaller, infill-type sites in well-known, upscale communities, then design and build the house of a lifetime for our clients. At Camargo Ridge, we’re also offering lots between 1-1.25 acres, which is unheard-of in Madeira.”

The successful execution of a custom homebuilding strategy in Greater Cincinnati these days means you have to find these smaller, infill communities – besides Madeira, we’re also looking for similar projects in Indian Hill and Montgomery – where we can be the developer and the builder,” said Randy LaMar, sales manager for Robert Lucke Group.

Camargo Ridge is located at Shawnee Run and Camargo Road. Besides the Madeira project, Robert Lucke Group is also assembling plans for at least two other new projects in 2015:

  • The Villages at Four Bridges in Liberty Township (Butler County) is bringing 30 homes starting at $390,000, custom patio homes with golf memberships and no maintenance;
  • At Rivercrest in Warren County, a new development where Lucke is one of the executive builders: 42 homes starting at $650,000 to be built in the Kings Local School District.

The Robert Lucke Group is based at 8825 Chapelsquare Lane in Cincinnati, Ohio, 45249. For more information, please visit www.robertluckegroup.com, call (513) 683-3300 or send Randy LaMar an e-mail at rlamar@robertluckegroup.com.

The Lucke Legacy:

New Leadership and Company, Same Family Name and Commitment to Luxury, Quality and Value at the new Robert Lucke Group

The new Robert Lucke Group, now led by Scott Lucke, is an old expert at Greater Cincinnati real estate.

THREE GENERATIONS: Scott, Marion and Bob Lucke of Robert Lucke Group, featured in today’s Cincinnati Enquirer, Sunday Edition – 1.6.13.

[SYMMES TOWNSHIP, Ohio ~ Jan. 6, 2013] Sixty years after his grandfather started the company – and thousands of high-end, custom homes of superior quality and value later – the third-generation is now in charge at a renamed, recharged and high-flying Robert Lucke Group.

The new company is now being led by Robert “Scott” Lucke, son of Bob Lucke, a legend in the Cincinnati homebuilding industry whose father Marion started the first firm, Lucke and Strassel, in 1953.

Heading into its sixth decade in business, Robert Lucke Group, a perennial HOMEARAMA builder, is capitalizing on a breakthrough turnaround year in 2012, as the housing market rebounds.

Happy 60th Birthday, Robert Lucke Group!

“With our company turning 60 this year, and being involved in so many different, yet convergent interests in the real estate area, we formed Robert Lucke Group to more effectively market, promote and grow one of the oldest custom homebuilders in Greater Cincinnati, while making sure our customers – and the market in general – are aware of the remodeling and commercial projects,” said Scott Lucke.

Our first and primary business is still the high-end, custom homes,” Lucke said.

“Everything else, the remodeling division as well as our commercial work, feeds off of the reputation for quality, luxury and value that we have established with our residential work.”

The third-generation Lucke, a lifelong employee who’s been kicking around the company since he could walk, was named President last month, having previously run the Robert Lucke Remodeling and Commercial divisions. Bob Lucke is continuing as CEO.

The Lucke Recipe: Residential Still Comes First

“It’s time. It’s time for Scott to put his own, unique signature on the family business,said Bob Lucke.

“Like myself, and my father before me, this company looks to a leader. Scott knows the business as well as I have, as he’s demonstrated with his leadership by building up the Remodeling division.”

The Robert Lucke Group builds custom homes between $300,000 and $3 million, having contributed mansion-like models to the HOMEARAMA series for 22 years.

Residential design and construction still lead the charge for Bob, Scott and their 20-plus employees at the Symmes Township company.

The craftsmanship displayed at Robert Lucke Homes can often lead to new assignments for Robert Lucke Remodeling, as well, such as the new Carriage House at Manor House in Mason.

When Bill and Kathy Kinane started looking for ways to expand their prized property, the Manor House, a multi-purpose event center catering to private and public affairs, business weddings, bar mitzvahs, corporate meetings, dinners, social and corporate events, they needed some deft, skilled hands to design and execute a unique remodeling campaign.

The Kinanes were looking to expand an old golf course clubhouse into an extension of their original Manor House facility, one that could address the wide array of functions flocking to the wildly-successful Mason-Montgomery Road complex since it opened in 1997.

“I needed an experienced builder/remodeler, somebody who could combine a chapel, a lodge, and a barn, all at the same time, for a highly discriminating and sophisticated audience,” Bill Kinane said.

Remodeling Excellence: Details, Details, Details

“Though we serve many corporate interests, we also serve families looking for an intimate, one-of-a-kind setting,” Kinane added.

“We needed a building with a predominantly residential look and feel, one with all the craftsmanship of a really high-end home. We wanted all the high-end details, from the chandeliers to the floors, the moldings, the door handles, the bathrooms and the staircase. Everything had to be perfect.”

Kicking around the market, there was no shortage of construction, development and remodeling companies willing to do the job.

But the Kinanes didn’t want just anybody.

Robert Lucke Remodeling turned out to be the perfect pick for us. They’re a smaller, family-run company with intense customer service, someone who’s hands-on, with us on-site every day, whom I could reach out to at any time throughout the process,” Kinane said.

“They had a great reputation locally. They’re a HOMEARAMA builder. Plus, they’ve been doing this for 60 years. They had everything we were looking for, so we gave them a shot.

“It was refreshing to see a third-generation owner on the job every day. Scott has stepped into his grandfather’s shoes, and his father’s shoes, in all the right ways,” said Kinane.

“We had a lot of confidence in Scott and his team, and they have delivered in every way possible,” said Kinane.

The new Robert Lucke Group is poised for additional growth and opportunities, and looks forward to the next 60 years serving clients. The company is aggressively looking for a client to build in the 2013 version of HOMEARMA, at Carriage Hill in Liberty Township, Butler County.

The Robert Lucke Group is based at 8825 Chapelsquare Lane, Cincinnati, OH 45249. For more information, visit www.robertluckegroup.com, call (513) 683-3300 or e-mail Scott at luckes3@yahoo.com.
