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?
Worried that the rolling hills, the lake, and the beautiful surroundings will hinder your work? It might… Ha Ha Ha. But for those that are focused enough to get that work done Holding Village will feature a 1GB state of the art technology to all residents!!! A true modern community that feels like you are thrown back in time.
Simple times combine with many modern conveniences and amenities. Offering a special blend not found in many communities. Children and adults alike will run over logs in the play areas, guests and neighbors will enjoy conversations as they collect the newspaper and the mail, and families will hang out in Adirondack chairs, lakefront. These homes and the neighborhood itself are designed to bring people together. In an ever changing world where we communicate via our little black device in our pockets, Holding Village is a refreshing change.
Want to step away? Just over the hill the residents will find the historic charming downtown of Wake Forest. Featuring locally owned restaurants, artists lofts and shops, the Cotton Company, a bowling alley and a small town soul craft brewery our downtown is second to none.
