We Invite You to Village Roots 

A Green Neighborhood

An estimated 10,700 people turn 65 every day, according to population and retirement research conducted in 2019 by the U.S. Government Accountability office. Baby Boomers, unlike those in previous generations, are looking for living options where the pursuit of hobbies, gardening, biking, walking and all the elements of sustaining a healthy life style are celebrated. Whether you’re an active senior or an environmentally thoughtful family with children, Village Roots stands as a unique and progressive neighborhood, a truly great place to live.

Village Roots is the first of its kind in central Ohio. It offers the perfect combination of urban and rural living with an emphasis on energy efficiency. The use of high quality materials with unique but classic finishes ensures all homes are beautifully built to stand the test of time. Through interconnection of land use, walkability, sociability, commerce, healthy neighborhood design and local agriculture, Village Roots captures a genuine sense of place.

A new pocket neighborhood of nine unabashedly comfortable Not So Big homes offers raised bed gardens and common green space, accented by a garden barn, a greenhouse, an off the grid watering system, and a giant spreading Sycamore tree. Along the entire back of the neighborhood bordering the bike path, installation of tallgrass prairie has begun, a unique and appropriate green accent to Village Roots and the Granville community.

Nine custom-built Craftsman style homes are designed and built for the way you want to live by Labocki Homes. Choose one of the two remaining lots and let us build a custom, energy efficient home for you, a house that is just right. Houses start in the mid to upper $600,000’s. Home design and functionality is inspired by the Not So Big house concept of Architect Sarah Susanka.

Walk or bike to Granville shopping and parks on the adjacent T.J. Evans Bike Path from the neighborhood’s unbeatable location on Old Sycamore Lane, a new public street.

Environmentally thoughtful and efficient homes are constructed with quality methods and materials by the craftsmen of Labocki Homes. Village Roots homes are green from the ground up.



“After almost 30 years in our historic home in downtown Columbus, it was time for a change. We wanted a place where we could comfortably age over the next decades but wasn’t the cookie cutter active adult communities. Village Roots was the only place that had it all – homes that are environmentally conscious and energy efficient; green space for gardening and a cool barn to support all those outdoor activities; a bike path right out the door; a walkable community with dining and shops; and Denison for academics and the arts. It seemed like a place to keep us young as we age!” – Heidi and Larry Drake
