Discover the Family Home of Your Dreams at Griffin's Ridge in Round Lake, NY
Whether you're on the hunt for your family's first house, or are interested in moving to a lovely neighborhood in the Saratoga area, Griffin's Ridge in Round Lake, NY may be the perfect place for you. Developed by Belmonte Builders, an award-winning, custom home builder based out of Clifton Park, Griffin's Ridge is a new home community that features multiple lots for single-family homes, a fantastic location, and other benefits for residents.
It's All About the Location

Location is one of the biggest factors to consider during the home buying process, and Griffin's Ridge is nestled in a peaceful spot in the historic Village of Round Lake.
The new home community is close to Round Lake (the waterbody the village is named after), local parks, restaurants, and other hotspots. Plus, it's adjacent to the popular Zim Smith Trail, a multi-use recreational trail that connects Round Lake with Halfmoon, Clifton Park, Malta, Ballston Spa, and Mechanicville. The trail is approximately 15 miles one way.
Griffin's Ridge is also a commuter's dream, as you can hop onto Route 9 within two minutes or I-87 within five minutes of your home. For those of you with a job in Saratoga Springs or another Capital Region community, you'll have the convenience of living near these major commuting roads.
Furthermore, homeowners will pay Malta taxes (in the lower range for the area) and be a part of the highly ranked Shenendehowa school system.
Settle Down With Your Family in a Welcoming Community

There is a strong feeling of fellowship among Round Lake residents, and Griffin's Ridge pays homage to the village's Victorian architecture through its unique home and floor plans. Although families live in their own tight-knit neighborhood here, they will also be members of the greater Round Lake community.
Griffin's Ridge is already an established new home community with over half of the lots sold. In March 2020, Belmonte Builders announced they had added five more lots at the site, which would give them 20 remaining lots.
One of the new lots is their award-winning model home, and one of the others is a Quick Delivery home that's ready to be moved into. Based on the Concord floor plan, it's a great choice for downsizers because the house features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study, and a look-out basement.
Choose and Customize the Right Floor Plan for You & Your Family

Interested in moving to Griffin's Ridge? Prices start in the high $300's, and your new Belmonte Builders home will have many standard features that are typically upgrades with other builders.
Some of the interior features Belmonte offers include quartz countertops in the main and master bathrooms, a tiled master bathroom floor, and kitchen cabinets with "soft-close" hardware. In addition, a few of the exterior features they offer include a sprinkler system, color coordinated shutters (per plan), and a generous seeding and professionally designed plantings package.
There are six floor plans to choose from at Griffin's Ridge with a mix of ranch, master up, and master down home types. If a particular floor plan catches your eye, the Belmonte Builders team will work with you to make it a reality. They can even modify floor plans if you have something slightly different in mind, such as a larger master bedroom or great room.

For those of you who like to get out and explore, the Round Lake area offers several great options. The DEC Boat Launch for Round Lake is located right up the road from the community, making it easy to go paddling and fishing. Residents will have direct access to the Zim Smith Trail too, which is open for jogging, bicycling, birding, and other activities.
In the village, you'll find a public library, concerts and performing arts at the Round Lake Auditorium, exceptional American cuisine at Lake Ridge Restaurant, delicious drinks at The Mill on Round Lake, and more. The community hosts a variety of arts, crafts, and cultural events throughout the year as well, including a highly anticipated antique show that they present every spring along the Zim Smith Trail.
You can also get in your car and visit downtown Saratoga or Clifton Park, both of which are located approximately a 10-minute drive away. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping opportunities in both communities.
Take a Tour & Begin the Home Buying Process
Let Belmonte Builders customize a floor plan according to your desires
When you're ready to learn more about Griffin's Ridge and the home buying process with Belmonte Builders, contact their Community Sales Manager, Cynthia Fisher. Ms. Fisher works at the company's model home/sales center at Griffin's Ridge, and she would love to give you a tour of the house, show you around the neighborhood, and explain the quality and care that goes into each home they build.
Belmonte Builders wants you to feel 100% confident about your decision, and they will answer any question you have during the process. For an idea of what to expect, here's how buying a house at one of their new home communities works:
- Customer chooses lot
- Customer chooses floor plan
- Customer reserves lot with a lot hold
- Belmonte develops a price workup for review and approval
- Once the price workup is agreed upon, the customer signs the contract
- Customer visits Design Center to pick out finishes and selections for the home
- Floor plans are finalized
- Construction begins
Depending on the length of the selections process (30-60 days), the whole project will only take approximately 6-7 months from contract to closing. After that, Belmonte Builders will have your dream home waiting for you.
