If you want to build your next home and are shopping around for a community, there are three in the early stages of selling that you may be interested in.

Hanover Lakes

Hanover Lakes is Bill Clark Homes’ newest community. It’s located in Castle Hayne, convenient to downtown Wilmington and the international airport, and features 231 homesites and a 14-acre lake.

The estates are designed for larger back yards with front road-access garages. All of the homes are designed with Bill Clark Homes’ signature energy efficient features and premium building standards. They also promise customizable features, so buyers don’t have to worry about their homes looking like everyone else’s.

Stevens Fine Home’s new community in Ogden is just 30 homesites and located within walking distance of Ogden Park where they’re installing a new skate park and open gym, in addition to all their current amenities. It’s also convenient to Mayfaire Town Center and Wrightsville Beach.

Scotts Hill Village

Located off of Market Street in Scotts Hill, adjacent to the new medical facility built by New Hanover Regional Medical Center, is the brand new community of Scotts Hill Village. It features 226 homesites surrounded by tangled oaks and southern pines. Amenities will include a community pool, pool house, 14-acre park, walking trails, and a kayak/canoe launch. The community is located where Foy Creek and Futch Creek merge, so residents will have plenty of opportunity to take advantage of local waters – fishing, clamming, and serene views.

Home plans start in the $400,000s and embody the traditional European Cottage style with modern features. They range from 1,815-3,971 square-feet with 2-4 bedrooms, 2.5-4 bathrooms, and 2 car garages.

If you want all of the customization options for the new homes in these communities, it’s important to jump into the building process early. At some point, each community will have “move-in ready” homes, but you may not get to choose colors, finishes, optional rooms, etc. So we invite you to Contact us if you have any questions.
