building better homes

A Little Bit of History:

Brian Homes, Inc. was incorporated in 1956, by principals Anthony A. Colella and Thomas M. Colella. The company primarily began building single family homes. The first plan consisted of twelve homes and was located in the 31st Ward of the City of Pittsburgh. In 1964, Brian Homes expanded into track building, which began in Vista Glen Manor, located in Bethel Park. This plan was completed in 1985, and during those twenty years over 800 homes were built.

In the early 1960's in conjunction with the development in Vista Glen Manor, Brian Homes built in sub-divisions in Mt. Lebanon, Scott Township, Baldwin Borough and Whitehall, as well as in other Bethel Park plans. During the early 1970's Brian Homes expanded into both land development and multi- family construction, while continuing construction of single family homes. (Main Street Apartments, Briarwood Garden Apartments, South Park Road Apartment, etc.) At this time Anthony Colella became inactive and Brian Colella joined his brother, Tom, in the corporation.

In the late 1970's Brian Homes further diversified into the construction of townhouses, having completed townhouse plans such as Logan Park and Parkview Manor in Bethel Park, Wallace Park in Whitehall, South Union Estates in South Park, and Hidden Valley in Upper St. Clair. Construction of single family homes continued in Bethel Green Manor, Tall Trees, Cider Lands and Bradley Woods.

Tom Colella continued to purchase and develop land for Brian Homes sub-divisions and in the 1980's began to develop land for other builders. Clearbrook, which consisted of four phases in Cranberry Township, seven phases of Altman Farms in North Huntington Township, four phases of Willowbrook Farms in Rostraver Township, and The Woods at Quaker Heights in Leet Township were all developed for Ryan Homes.

In the 1990's Brian Homes completed Bethel Green Manor, Park Grove Manor and Vista Pointe in Bethel Park, all single family homes. The third phase of McMurray Highlands in Peters Township (upscale single family homes beginning at $350,000) was started. Brian Homes continued to build single family homes in Forest Brook and Southridge Manor in Upper St. Clair, Oakridge Farms in South Fayette, as well as various other locations in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.

Beginning in the fall of 1992 Brian Homes Developed Phase 1 of McClelland Farms in
North Strabane Township. Construction is now complete in Phase 1, Phase 2, Phase 3,
and 4. Brian Homes also completed construction in Phase 1, 2, and 3 of Saddlebrook
Farms in Bethel Park.

The fourth and final phase of McMurray Highlands was completed in April of 2013.

Brian Homes developed and is currently building the Meadow Ridge Plan in Peters
Township. The plan consists of 27 premier lots. Construction price range starting at $655,900.

In the fall of 2013 development was started for the final phase of Saddlebrook Farms and
construction is expected to begin in the Spring/Summer of 2014. There are 8 lots all
situated in South Park Township.

Brian Homes built 2 additional homes in 2013. One 4 bedroom at 1256 Bethel Green
Drive in Bethel Park, and a 3 bedroom home at 2832 Dolores Drive in South Union
