Amid an unprecedented seller’s market causing home prices to rise, real estate development group, Stevens Fine Homes unveils a new neighborhood that’s bringing relief to buyers who are on a budget. Windermere Estates, located off Mt. Misery Road in Leland is just minutes from Wilmington and offers a unique opportunity to get into a brand-new home for under $180,000, plus the chance to save thousands in property taxes by being in Brunswick County. Windermere Estates will be a quaint, 76 homesite development featuring popular craftsman style designs and will have easy access to the new I140 bypass allowing for a quick hop into Wilmington.
Already three properties have closed before the model home is even built.
“We had a customer looking at one of our other neighborhoods that was a little over his price point. He saw our sign for Windermere Estates and immediately called me and said, ‘this is perfect!’,” said Windermere’s on-site sales specialist, Colleen Collins of Stevens Fine Homes.
“He had been looking at Stevens neighborhoods for a year or two and was waiting on the perfect location and fit for his family’s needs and Windermere was it.”
Six Windermere homes and the model are now under construction, expected to be complete by December. Homes in Windermere start as low as $175.9. Buyers get to choose from 12 different one or two-story home designs ranging from two bedroom two bath, 1,405 square foot plans all the way up to a 3,187 square foot house with six bedrooms and 3 ½ bathrooms.
“It’s perfect for both retirees who don’t want a lot of maintenance and for large families who can get into a six-bedroom house for $235,000 $230,000,” said Collins.
Stevens has plans to re-design their ultra-popular townhome layouts from Grayson Park, which sold out in less than a year, into two different single family home designs exclusive to Windermere. These two bedroom, two bath home plans will both be one story.
“We really wanted to continue to offer affordable homes for our customers,” said Collins.
The Windermere property is nestled inside a shady, wooded landscape with ponds, walking paths, sidewalks and street lights.
Its craftsman style look of the homes will feature popular board and batten, cedar shake and stone accent exterior options and open floor plans. All homes are built with the Stevens Fine Homes “Energy Wise” guarantee, providing greater energy efficiency savings on utility bills and buyers will get to select all of their fixtures and finishes using the Stevens Fine Homes “Create Your Home” online design studio. The unique program makes putting together a dream home easy. Users simply select from a variety of ready to go design packages pre-assembled by professional designers of TEAL design firm in Raleigh.
“We’re predicting phase one to sell out quickly. We’ve got a lot of people from out of town that have interest. The neighborhood has a lot of character, featuring pond views and wooded sites. The pricing is affordable and with the location, you’re able to get into town quickly, so it’s is desirable,” Collins said.
Stevens Fine Homes is an award winning third generation family business responsible for building over 3,000 homes in the area since 1993. Specializing in providing homes of top value in prime location the new Stevens Fine Homes Windermere Estates will debut it’s model home this December.
