Samuelsen to build in Champions' Club

Samuelsen Builders has been tapped to build executive and estate residences at the gated Village of Siena in the Champions' Club in Trinity. Samuelsen Builders, owned and operated by Rich and Rick Samuelsen, has built more than 600 homes in the Champions' Club and in Trinity, the award-winning master-planned community, says Dan Aldridge, vice president of Adam Smith Enterprises, which develops both communities.

In Siena, Samuelsen plans to offer 10 floor plans priced from $600,000 to more than $2-million, including homesite.

This village is designed for 50 executive and estate residences, nearly half of which will overlook water or the 18-hole championship golf course at Fox Hollow Golf Club.
