Tralee Place Open for Business

Excitement is stirring over a new 30 lot neighborhood off River Road in Wilmington. With land in New Hanover County becoming increasingly scarce, it’s no wonder Tralee Place is getting so much attention from prospective home buyers. The development is one of the last prime locations left in the county.

“It’s an attractive area, a solid school district with the best of both worlds living so close to the river and the beach. There has been a lot of interest,” said Tralee New Home Specialist, Jenna Lowder.

Located off Cathay Road from River Road, Tralee Place offers tranquility and convenience, a benefit of being tucked away from traffic and buffered by wooded area and wetlands, yet minutes from Cape Fear River access, Carolina Beach, stores, restaurants and the new 14 screen movie theater shopping complex, The Pointe at Barclay.

“There’s a lot happening in that area, it’s exciting,” said Lowder.

A product of Stevens Fine Homes, Tralee Place currently has seven homes under construction. A popular coastal craftsman style is being used in the designs.

Daniel and Patricia Fitzgerald purchased the very first home in Tralee Place.

“After researching numerous home builders and new construction communities in the Wilmington area, we chose to build our home in Tralee Place. This community offers home owners an incredible value when you compare the quality of construction to other new home communities in Wilmington,” said Daniel Fitzgerald.

New homes in Tralee feature attractive shake, board and batten, stone and craftsman accents, and start as low as $230,000. Buyers choose from nine different floor plans ranging from 1,830 to 3,187 square feet with spacious properties up to nearly 1/3 acre.

A new online home design tool being offered at the Stevens Fine Homes website called “Create Your Home” is making the overwhelming process of deciding things like countertops and flooring a whole lot easier. This user-friendly program has for home buyers hand crafted bulk design packages and selection offerings put together by expert designers.

Buyers like the Fitzgerald’s can choose their color schemes, exterior facades, and a la carte upgrades all from the convenience of their computer. An estimate of cost and virtual renderings can be generated to see selections in full view.

All customers have their own personalized project management team who stays with the home buyer every step of the way to ensure the building process runs smoothly and on schedule. It’s the Stevens Fine Homes new Gold Standard of customer service.

“We currently live in the Lake Norman area and were nervous about the building and design process while living four hours away. The team at Stevens Fine Homes has made every effort to ensure our new home building experience is as exciting and stress free as it should be,” said Fitzgerald.

Tralee’s debut home, The Beaufort, will be showcased in this year’s Wilmington Cape Fear Home Builders Parade of Homes the last two weekends of April. Its open floor plan maximizes square footage and was designed using customer recommendations.

“It’s a 2,560 square foot two story, and a brand new floor plan with the master suite downstairs. It seems to be what a lot of people are looking for right now,” said Lowder.

Anyone is free to check out the Create Your Home online feature at  

New homes in Tralee are listed by Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage.

“We are so excited to be building our dream home in Tralee Place and will be proud Stevens Fine Home owners for many years to come,” said Fitzgerald.
