PRLog - Nov. 19, 2012 - RALEIGH, N.C. -- Touted as one of Wake County’s best kept secrets, Johnson’s Landing is located off Highway 55, just south of Fuquay-Varina. This lovely community of new, single family homes is 20 minutes to both Downtown Raleigh and Research Triangle Park, five minutes to restaurants and shopping (from boutique to big box), and footsteps to The Shoppes at Johnson’s Landing, located next door to the neighborhood. Fayetteville and Fort Bragg are only 30 minutes away, and a state-of-the-
Johnson's Landing Clubhouse, Overlooking Johnson's Pond
What makes the community truly special, however, is the tranquil setting dotted with charming homes in the midst of this convenient location. The centerpiece of the neighborhood is 10-acre Johnson’s Pond, stocked with fish as large as nine pounds. Fishing and non-motorized boating are allowed, with open space surrounding this serene body of water. Numerous homesites back up to Johnson’s Pond, and many others back to wooded areas. Soothing peacefulness and the ability to retreat from life’s hustle and bustle abound at Johnson’s Landing.
Two new faces have emerged in Johnson’s Landing, as award-winning builders Caviness & Cates and Savvy Homes have begun construction on Americana, Craftsman and European-style single family homes in this desirable locale. “We’re very pleased to represent these two locally based builders at Johnson’s Landing,” says Fonville Morisey & Barefoot President/CEO Audie Barefoot. “They’re Top 100 Builders in the nation, offering extremely well-built, energy efficient, value-packed homes at outstanding prices. From first time and move-up buyers to retirees and empty nesters, Caviness & Cates and Savvy Homes are providing excellent choices at Johnson’s Landing. Visit the neighborhood to see this for yourself. I think you’ll be impressed.”
Priced from the $150s, The Villas at Johnson’s Landing are underway by Caviness & Cates. These 1,500 – 1,900 square foot Energy Plus certified homes include low maintenance vinyl siding with brick or stone accent fronts, 9’ first floor ceilings and smooth ceilings throughout, foyer and dining room hardwoods, granite kitchen countertops, stainless steel appliances, and numerous other standard features.
“We’re excited to be building in Johnson’s Landing,” says Chris Cates, Caviness & Cates Owner. “The existing homes are good looking and quality built, and the amenities are a draw here. A community pool and a large clubhouse overlook Johnson’s Pond… The clubhouse is currently being refurbished with new furniture, artwork, and technology, all for resident use. The developers are also re-surfacing some roads. These things, plus the neighborhood location and the homes we’re offering here combine to what I see as a winning community. I’m glad Caviness & Cates is a part of it.”
The Estates at Johnson’s Landing, with homes from the $190s, are under construction by Savvy Homes. Ranging from 3,000 to 3,500 square feet, these Resourcefull Living™ homes include low maintenance vinyl, trim, and accents with inviting curb appeal, 9’ first floor ceilings and smooth ceilings throughout, vaulted or tray ceilings in bedrooms and baths per plan, Energy Star® kitchen appliances, and an abundance of other standard features as well as an expansive array of upgrade options.
“We are also delighted to build in Johnson’s Landing,” says Darrell Daigre, Owner of Savvy Homes. “Few premium lots are left in Wake County… We were thrilled to find these and to be a part of the team providing tremendous value here. As Chris said, the amenities are terrific, and HOA dues are only $50 a month. (Many communities have $50 monthly HOA dues and don’t even have amenities.) Access to Wake County Schools is also a big plus. I see the future very bright for Johnson’s Landing.”
Caviness & Cates and Savvy Homes will have homes ready in December, with move-in by the holidays available. “Both builders offer extraordinary value and luxury via their variety of options and customer service attitudes,” says Barry Woodard, Broker in Charge at the Clayton office of Home Towne Realty. “Their dedication to energy efficiency is evident throughout their high performance homes.” Nicole Orringer, Broker, GRI, and e-Pro with the same office of Home Towne Realty and her husband, Broker David Orringer agree. “They build great looking homes with exciting interior features at affordable prices. Add smart, energy efficient building practices to this, and you have high value / high quality homes. They will do well at Johnson’s Landing.”
