A proposed sheriff's sale of an undeveloped section of the Woods of Brandywine housing plan in Manor has been postponed until April 1.

AmeriServ Financial Bank has a foreclosure case against Jana Development, which had plans to build on the 26 acres in the plan.

Last month, Westmoreland County Judge Richard McCormick Jr. increased the default judgment for the property from $543,991 to $724,866.

The bulk of the increase is for the addition of the $174,000 in sequestered funds that Manor Borough may draw from a bank account to complete infrastructure in that section of the housing plan. Manor officials have said that Jana was in default of a developer's agreement.

The owner of Harrison City-based Patriot Homes USA has told the Manor Planning Commission that he is interested in buying the property to build homes that would cost between $275,000 and $325,000.
