A Tour Of The ‘Charleston’ Style Home By John Wieland At Holding Village

IMG_0888Holding Village, the new sprawling community in Wake Forest being developed by Reader & Partners (Orlando, FL) continues to grow at a fast pace.  With over 15 homes sold in just the first 2 months of availability and another 15+ homes available for quick move in, this neighborhood will soon be “THE” community that everyone is buzzing about.  In the heart of Wake Forest and conveniently located to restaurants, schools, shopping and more, Holding Village offers everything a person could want.  The sidewalk community has tons of walking trails, a pristine community lake, several green spaces for play and gathering, not to mention a gorgeous neighborhood pool and clubhouse planned for opening this first summer of the community’s existence. Nothing is being left out in Holding Village including the quality and style that the builders offer in their homes.  A prime example of this can be seen in the  Roanoke model home by John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods.

IMG_0887The Roanoke plan is a “Charleston” style home featuring a rear entry detached garage.  From the garage you enter the home through a quaint screened porch that allows for enjoying those cool spring and fall evenings without the hassle of bugs.  Upon entering the home, you will find a small mud area leading into the gourmet open kitchen / dining / family areas.  At over 2200 sqft, this home offers large open living with custom finishes.  A first floor owners suite at the front of the home gives that much sought after 1 floor living for those that don’t want to deal with stairs.  The finishes in the bathroom will compare to those seen in any estate home you can imagine.  The doorless shower is huge and immaculate.   In the model off of the laundry room, a fantastic feature that was added is a “dog wash” shower stall.  Fantastic idea for those pet lovers.

On the second floor you will find 2 more bedrooms with a large open loft area that provides ample space for that extra entertaining.  Not to be forgotten, off of the loft is walk out attic space that gives over 100 sqft of always needed storage.  John Wieland doesn’t skimp on finishes on the second floor and in the Roanoke model, they added a beautiful built in entertainment area with added barn doors for hiding the electronics when needed.

If that is not enough space, there is always the option to add a finished bonus room over the garage.  In this model they not only finished the bonus but also equipped it with a full bathroom.  That turns this area into a perfect mancave, guest/teen suite, home office, music studio…… The possibilities are endless as long as you have an imagination.

IMG_0884Head out to Holding Village and check out all that this community has to offer and make sure to take a look at all the open model homes that are available.  I am sure you will be glad you did.

Introducing… Holding Village, Wake Forest

Have you ever wondered about those gorgeous silos you see for the 98 bypass? Have you thought, “I wonder what will happen with that land?” Have you taken a left hand turn at Sheetz on Roger’s Road in Wake Forest and explored what was back there? Well, if you did so recently you saw some beautiful new homes being built. Streets being put in and dirt being moved. This is the very beginning of a new Wake Forest neighborhood…. Holding Village!

This is the site of a former dairy farm. The Holding family once farmed this land and enjoyed the views themselves. They fished the pond and raised their cows AND their family their. A prominent family here in Wake Forest and playing a key role in the founding of the town itself. The family had impact beyond the milk they produced…they also owned a bank, co-founded the FAMOUS Royal Cotton Mill and a drugstore.

The land, now being developed by Reader & Partners. A company with extensive experience. Over 75 years in every part of real estate development. Perry Reader (former Walt Disney Imagineering Executive) leads this team that remains active in several markets including the Triangle area of North Carolina; Tampa, Orlando, and Wildwood Florida; and Charleston, SC. Scott Lay is the Raleigh, NC regional office leader while the headquarters are in Orlando, Florida.

With 10 communities across four states in active development, Wheelock Communities focuses on strong growing markets and brings mixed-use and master planned communities to life. They have been bringing new homes and interactive neighborhoods to home buyers since 2010. How many? More than 24,000 residential homes!

The first phase is open and ready! Earlier this winter the 3 builders began selling homes in Phase One. It includes 124 homes built by John Weiland Homes and Neighborhoods of Atlanta, GA, Drees Homes and Ashton Woods Homes. There are a variety of types, styles, sizes, features, lot sizes etc… The entire first portion will end up totaling 374 homes. A wonderful addition to Wake Forest. The seemingly endless sidewalks for strolls and strollers is on the way! Want a large front porch? How about a rear garage served by an alley and creating a courtyard? Plan on meeting your neighbors and enjoying the company. This is a neighborhood that will welcome you outdoors. Four pocket parks, a multipurpose ball field (soccer, kite flying etc.), a lake…Holding Lake, and a gorgeous amenity center featuring a play area, picinic area overlooking Holding Lake and a stunning pool for those hot summer nights is scheduled to be completed by mid 2016. Want to get off of the sidewalks? Try the walking trails around the lake that one day will connect to the Wake Forest trail system. Sounds bucolic doesn’t it?
