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.

The only thing it is missing is you!  Ask us how you can make the beautiful Holly Craftsman in the new home community of MacTavish “The Home of YOUR Life!” today!

Homes by Dickerson receives a Perfect Score at the Parade of Homes

Homes by Dickerson receives a Perfect Score at the Parade of Homes


Just before the emcees announced the winners for one of our categories, you could look around the Dickerson tables and see a range of emotions from the team members. Some were playing it cool, knowing that we had done everything possible and could not change the outcome at this point. Some had white knuckle grips on the table, crossing fingers and toes in obedience to the rules of superstition. Some were just trying to remember to breathe. Seconds later we heard the name of our St. James Parade Home and not just that it had won the GOLD Award in that category but that it was the only home of the evening to receive a Perfect Score! Our President sat stunned for a moment with something close to disbelief on his face. Not because he didn’t think we could do it or didn’t deserve it but rather he was in awe due to the amazing competition we had gone up against…


Last night over 700 talented and hardworking builders came together in a size and temperature-challenged ballroom to celebrate the Wake County Home Builder’s Association’s 49th Annual Parade of Homes Awards Banquet. For months, all of these men and women have planned, cleared land, built, cleaned, decorated and spruced up their Parade Homes in hopes of earning the coveted Gold, Silver or Bronze banners they can hang outside their homes. Congratulations to all of the winners from last night and to all of the entrants-we know how hard each of you worked!

Homes By Dickerson is proud to announce that in addition to our Perfect Score bragging rights, we also brought home two Gold Awards and one Silver Award!

Haywood Community and Visions

Haywood Community and Visions

Haywood concepts overall

Many of you have been waiting and very patient while we get development underway and are now ready to share Homes by Dickerson’s newest exclusive community, Haywood! We are officially recorded and can begin sharing the vision and details.

Haywood is located just off Glenwood Ave and Pinecrest Road in North Raleigh. There will be 25 home sites available; some heavily wooded and a few basement opportunities. Homes will be starting from the $650’s and will all have distinctive design details that make Homes by Dickerson custom communities unique.

Here are a few pictures of our plan charrette that our in-house architect, Jeff Williams, and our designer, Rachel Bailey, put together to show us some of the colors, exterior elements, details and options that could be available in Haywood.  Linda Bohling will be Haywood’s Community Sales Manager working alongside of Project Manager, Ryan Speight. Our team works hard to listen to your clients needs and wants and will put together a package and home design that is right for them. They will have the option of starting from our current plan portfolio, modifying those plans or designing something completely unique. We have selected three homes to get the community started that will be available for sale. These homes are the Sullivan B, the Foxborough Hill II and the Underwood. **Note that anything shown in the pictures below are subject to change and lot numbers shown are not exact and are to just help give guidance to the overall concept**

All of our homes will be high performance meaning they are Energy Star® and National Green Building Standard Certified which ensures your home is not just energy efficient, but is also more comfortable, healthier and right for the environment.

Our initial Haywood concept portfolio can be seen by requesting online or a package of information can also be mailed or picked up if you would prefer to review the details that way.  Simply send your request to info@homesbydickerson.com.

To maintain the integrity of the vision for Haywood, each elevation will be reviewed and approved by the architectural review board. Typical building time is about 8 months from start to finish and will be spaced accordingly due to demand to ensure that everyone receives personal service and attention.

Homes by Dickerson offers a full design center and showroom where you and your clients will be able to work with our design team to bring their home to life. Initial meetings with Linda and Ryan be held at our design center until the community is farther along. The design center is located at 7201 Creedmoor Rd, Suite 147, Raleigh, NC 27613.

Linda and Ryan will begin setting appointments the week of July 21st with those interested. It will be important to know and understand your buying power and not have any contingencies to be able to build. To view a list of Homes by Dickerson’s preferred lenders, click here.

If you are interested in getting more information or setting up an appointment with Linda and Ryan, please call 919-413-7104 or email info@homesbydickerson.com .  We look forward to working with you to build your new home in Haywood!
