Final Opportunities in Haywood-A Homes By Dickerson exclusive community!

Final Opportunities in Haywood-A Homes By Dickerson exclusive community!

It is hard to believe that there are only two opportunities remaining in this beautiful enclave of Homes By Dickerson custom homes!  It seems like only yesterday that our team was introduced to this piece of land perfectly located off Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh.   As we walked the site and considered both the challenges and rewards, we envisioned a neighborhood which would exude southern charm by offering an unique and stunning entrance, one of the most beautiful streetscapes imaginable, and an array of custom designs with the highest attention to quality and craftsmanship.  Never could we have imagined the additional opportunities this neighborhood would bring to the community or to our company!

In just shy of three short years, Haywood has gone under development, had a spectacular Grand Opening, featured the 2015 Duke Progress Energy home, won multiple Parade of Home and MAME distinctions, and was chosen to host the 2016 HGTV Smart Home!  Needless to say, this community has had its share of accolades and has been a shining star for the duration.  Here are a few highlights:

Life in Wendell Falls

Life in Wendell Falls

Life in Wendell Falls. If you’re looking for more than just a home, you’ve found it. If you’re looking for a community in the truest sense of the word, look no further. If you’re looking for a place to call home that has everything you could possible wish for within an arm’s reach, welcome to Wendell Falls.

Now my perspective is unique. Yes, I am a new home consultant with Homes By Dickerson but I was a Wendell Falls resident first. Two years ago, my wife and I were looking for a new home community. We had a 2-year-old daughter, we were expecting our son any day and we had a really big dog.  We were busting out of our townhome. Like busting. #NeedSpaceNow
Oh yeah, and there was some serious 9 months pregnancy nesting happening.

We did what I imagine many new home customers would do that consider themselves “city people”.  We looked for a new home in our price range everywhere in Raleigh but found almost nothing that would work for us. Yet it was important that we stay close to downtown Raleigh. So, we started to look South. Nothing. And West. Nope. And North. Definitely nope. Zilch. And it wasn’t until a friend suggested we look East that we stumbled, almost literally, upon Wendell Falls.

I had really never been East of Raleigh but we were blown away to discover that it had almost everything we were looking for in a new home community and what it lacked is now under development and on the way. Even though it had all of the things that were important to us (close distance to downtown Raleigh but with a quaint small town feel; outdoor amenities like hiking/biking trails, a pool, amphitheater for outdoor music, etc.; a brand new home that we could afford), it wasn’t until we actually spent some time in Wendell Falls that we decided to call it home. #LifeinWendellFalls



Here is what we did. Every Sunday we would hang out at The Farmhouse, more specifically Grounds Café, like we lived here. We would come out, let our daughter play on the playground while we sipped on some of the best coffee we’ve ever tasted. We did the “Resident for a Day” program, swam in the pool and enjoyed a delicious lunch. We would get to know the people that already lived in the neighborhood and tell them we were thinking of moving here. Funny thing, we met SO MANY people that were doing just what we were doing. Some of our closest friends in the neighborhood came from those initial visits. We drove and timed the drive to downtown Raleigh. 18 minutes BTW if you drive like me. And what was probably most fun was coming out to enjoy ourselves at the Farmhouse Jams Summer Concert Series. They say “The music is free but it’s B.Y.O.C (bring your own chair).” So that’s what we did. And. It. Was. Awesome. Food, fun, music, beverages, kids’ games, adult games, sunshine. It is what sealed the deal for us.

As a side note, the next Farmhouse Jams is coming up at 5:30 pm on September 8th, (which happens to be my birthday FYI) and features JOHNNY FOLSOM 4, a Johnny Cash cover band. You’re welcome.

If you’re thinking about life in Wendell Falls, come test it out and have some fun with us. If Wendell Falls hadn’t yet made your radar, I hope it is on there now and that you’ll join us for some fun and community.

Ok, now I will use my sales person voice.

Homes By Dickerson once again named Best of the Best in Chapel Hill!

Homes By Dickerson once again named Best of the Best in Chapel Hill!

Homes By Dickerson is proud to announce that we were once again named Best of the Best in Chapel Hill!  Specifically Best of the Best Construction Builder by Chapel Hill Magazine for our work in Briar Chapel.  We could not be more pleased with this honor as we strive to build the best custom, high-performance homes in The Triangle area.  The August edition of the Best of the Best in Chapel Hill by Chapel Hill Magazine touted four area home builders in this category as the best that Chapel Hill has to offer its residents and we are excited to be a part of this elite group.

Briar Chapel is the Triangle’s largest green community located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Homes By Dickerson offers an array of high-performance, green-certified, single-family homes in this planned community, starting from the $300s-$750s. We have a portfolio of plans to choose from that you can customize and tailor to fit your lifestyle and needs! Briar Chapel is a unique community that blends in with its natural surroundings. Amenities abound here with approximately 900 acres of preserved open space that incorporates 24 miles of walking trails, parks, community gardens and dog parks. The Briar Club is a great spot to unwind with neighbors and friends, attend community events, or fit in a quick workout or group fitness class. With two saltwater swimming pools, a splash pad for the little ones, two water slides and picnic pavilions, you don’t have to look far for lots to do! Briar Chapel even has a full-time activities director on staff who coordinates a number of interest groups and events for all ages to enjoy!







Located right off of 15/501 in Chatham County, Briar Chapel is just minutes from Chapel Hill, Durham and Research Triangle Park. With I-64, I-54, and I-440 not far, it makes Briar Chapel a convenient place to call home to have the best of it all!

Homes By Dickerson now in South Carolina!

Homes By Dickerson now in South Carolina!

Homes By Dickerson is excited to announce that we are expanding into the state of South Carolina, selling custom homes in Nexton, a master-planned community in the desirable Charleston area!  This opportunity will broaden the regional influence we have had since we began building and selling custom homes in 1975.  It also takes the number of markets we are currently selling in to three as we announced our move into the prestigious Pinehurst National No. 9 Golf Course Community last year.

Over the years, Homes By Dickerson has created a successful partnership in multiple neighborhoods with the award-winning developer Newland Communities.  After hearing of Newland’s venture into Summerville, South Carolina (near the North Charleston area), we were intrigued by the idea of working in another market and decided to begin brainstorming and researching the possibility.

“We wanted to make sure that the concept of building in a beautiful community near the coast was not just a fun and exciting opportunity but that it made sense for our company,” explains Brant Chesson, president and CEO of Homes By Dickerson.


Over the next year and a half, multiple trips were made to ensure that we understood the project by surveying the area, interviewing possible subcontractors and vendors, and becoming familiar with the geography and lifestyle.  We were pleasantly surprised at the progress already made in that area.

“It was attractive to us that the commercial spaces and apartment buildings were underway and that the Charleston market was ready for the growth,” says Chesson.

Our leadership team became very aware that the Charleston economy is booming and that South Carolina is doing an excellent job of bringing business into the state, especially this historic, coastal region.  Location is always key so Nexton’s proximity to the coast and convenience to I-26 (a major thoroughfare in South Carolina) increased the attraction.  Recent additions to the area of global firms such as Boeing, Mercedes Benz Vans, and Volvo only enticed our desire for inclusion into the Nexton neighborhood.

Another concern we had with moving into a completely new market was ensuring that the Homes By Dickerson culture would still be reflected in every step of the building process.

“We are different from a lot of our competition in that we offer high-performance green features and the ability to customize our homes with a very personal, hands-on and client-friendly experience,” clarifies Chesson.  “We just can’t teach that from four hours away.”

We knew that the only way this venture would be successful would be to draw from our existing group of talented, dedicated individuals.  Fortunately, the timing and challenge appealed to our then Project Manager Jonathan Bailey and Designer Rachel Bailey.

Jonathan, a Construction Management graduate of East Carolina University and seasoned custom home builder, now serves as Division President for Homes By Dickerson Charleston.  Rachel, an Interior Design major from Meredith College and member of the Interior Design Society, has taken on the role of Division Vice President.

“Jonathan and Rachel represent all aspects of our business from how we build and design our homes to how we interact with our clients,” confirms Chesson.

We are offering ranch and cottage home plans in the Nexton community featuring open-living concepts and first-floor master suites ranging from 1900-2400 square feet. Home prices are anticipated to start in the high $300s.  For more information on Homes By Dickerson and building “The Home of Your Life,” in South Carolina, please go to www.HomesbyDickerson.com or call (843) 466-4875.

Tour The Holly Craftsman in MacTavish!

It is amazing to see the developments in prestigious North Raleigh.  Beautiful communities such as MacTavish by Homes By Dickerson are expanding and growing across this desirable area, offering open floorplans, custom features, and gorgeous wooded views.  Let’s take a closer look into our private enclave of custom homes being built in MacTavish-specifically the stunning Holly Craftsman with its exterior combination of stone and shake in lovely gray hues and its welcoming Southern front porch.

The main floor offers ranch-style living with both a master and guest suite as well as a formal dining room and study.  The entire home boasts a light and airy feel through its color palette of soft grays, greens and blues as well as the white trim details.  There is a comfortable merge between traditional and modern which can be seen in the gourmet kitchen through the elegant pendant light fixtures, sleek drawer pulls, glass subway tiles, and clean lines of the island built-in shelving.

One of the biggest wow-factors of this home is definitely the view from the back screen porch as you are met with an expanse of thick, green grass and a dense line of trees.  Of course when the weather begins to cool down, you can still enjoy that view from your cozy living room as you gaze through your triple slider door and enjoy your elegant fireplace flanked by custom built-in bookcases.

 

Upstairs there is plenty of space for family and guests alike with two bedrooms en suite, a generous bonus room, and a plethora of convenient storage!  A mudroom, upgraded laundry room, and third garage bay complete this family and entertaining-friendly floorplan.
