In just eight months, 20 home sites have sold in Ogden’s new Maple Ridge at West Bay Estates neighborhood making it one of the fastest selling developments in the Ogden area. Maple Ridge, a product of Stevens Fine Homes, is located off Torchwood Blvd. With only four homesites and just six newly built homes left, Maple Ridge could completely sell out before the end of the year.
“Ogden is booming right now. We’re nestled back in a real quiet area, one of the few areas off Torchwood that still has inventory left,” said New Home Specialist Dustin Fitzgerald.
Maple Ridge homes are coastal craftsmen style featuring popular stone and board and batten exteriors ranging from 1,800 to 3,200 square feet. Interiors sport MarKraft® solid wood cabinetry, Moen® plumbing features, Mohawk® flooring, and Frigidaire® stainless steel appliances. The price point is low, starting at $230,000 and the location is prime. Maple Ridge is seven miles from Wrightsville Beach, four miles from Mayfaire Town Center and minutes from Ogden Park. Home buyers delight in the duel benefit of being buffered by shady trees and nature preserves on spacious lots of Maple Ridge yet close to major thoroughfares like Market Street, I-40, the new I-140 Bypass and the new Military Cutoff Road extension coming soon.
“The yard sizes are up to a one third acre, much larger than average back yards, which in Ogden that’s an unheard-of thing right now,” said Fitzgerald.
Like all Stevens Fine Homes, Maple Ridge homes are built with the Stevens Energy Wise guarantee using Energy Star ® appliances, 16 SEER heat pumps, R15 insulation versus the standard R13 and radiant barrier reflective roof sheathing.
“Most residents are averaging less than $100 per month on utility bills,” said Fitzgerald.
Positioned just outside Wilmington city limits Maple Ridge homeowners like Edward Wehinger & Jada Hall enjoy lower tax rates. Amenities include a neighborhood common area, sidewalks and street lights throughout.
“Our time in Maple Ridge has been the most amazing experience… Maple Ridge not only provides privacy but gives home owners a great group of neighbors who enjoy getting together for community events such as cook outs and holiday block parties,” said homeowner, Ed Wehinger.
All buyers receive access to Stevens Fine Homes’ exclusive “Create Your Home” design website where fixtures and paint colors can be easily selected from a variety of design packages put together by professional designers of TEAL design firm in Raleigh.
“It allows people to completely construct their home online. It puts the power in the buyers’ hands. They can go and create their home online and have a good idea of what their final price will be before they even meet with me,” said Fitzgerald.
The new Publix and Aldi grocery stores choosing Ogden and plans being made for the first ever Ogden/Porter’s Neck hotel are strong indicators for buyers to get in to the booming Ogden area now. Stevens Fine Homes is committed to providing its customers with high quality homes while keeping prices affordable. The six Maple Ridge remaining newly built homes are currently move-in ready and the four remaining lots are situated in desirable locations of the neighborhood. Stevens Fine Homes is currently running a Year-End Closeout special towards move-in ready homes. Buyers who close before December 30, 2017 will receive a $2,500 closing cost credit, or a total of $3,500 closing cost credit when you close before November 30, 2017. Details apply and inventory is limited so buyers are urged to schedule their visit soon.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better company to build with. We love our new home and firmly believe that Maple Ridge is the best neighborhood tucked away in West Bay Estates,” said Wehinger.
