A home construction firm based in Atlanta has purchased more than 17 acres for $9.1 million for the further planned construction of a 425-home housing development in Hopkinton.

According to Pulte Group of Atlanta, the firm is planning 48 single-family homes and 33 attached duplex homes on the parcel.

The property transaction closed on Tuesday, according to state land records.

Developer Roy MacDowell and his firm Baystone Development, master developers of the massive 700-acre development at the former site of Weston Nurseries, sold the property to Pulte Homes.

The development fits within the larger master-planned community dubbed Legacy Farms, according to Julie Pulliam, a public relations manager for Pulte Group.

The master development on the 700-acre former site of Weston Nurseries off of Route 135 also includes other housing developments, retail space, office space and 500 acres of open space. At full build-out there will be more than 1,100 housing units, according to Baystone Development.

Pulte Group made another $9.1 million purchase in July 2017 for 13 acres of land, records show.

According to Hopkinton planning document, a master plan special permit for the project was first filed in 2010.
