Traton Homes Begins Construction at Frederica on St. Simons Island
Atlanta luxury home builder, Traton Homes, is pleased to offer beautiful new homes priced from the high $700,000s at highly-acclaimed Frederica on St. Simons Island.
The 2,900 acre community of Frederica represents the very best of St. Simons Island real estate. The community’s incredible amenities include an acclaimed Tom Fazio designed golf course, a 400-acre lake, world class golf practice facilities, 35,000 square foot clubhouse, boathouse, outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, well-equipped fitness center and an equestrian center. Tremendous effort has gone into the preservation of existing wildlife and natural vegetation, including the careful transplanting of hundreds of indigenous Live Oak trees.
“Traton Homes is thrilled that our first venture outside of Atlanta is in this extraordinary community located at our home away from home in the St. Simons area,” stated Bill Poston, founder and president for Traton Homes. “Our connection to the area runs deep. My brother Milburn and I have enjoyed visiting the island with our families for over 40 years, and we are extremely pleased to be a part of the Frederica community.” Brothers Bill and Milburn Poston founded Traton Homes in 1971.
Frederica is owned by Frederica Development Group, LLC, which is owned by H. Wayne Huizenga. Mr. Huizenga developed The Floridian Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida and has ownership in Diamond Creek Golf Club in Banner Elk, North Carolina.
"We are delighted that Traton Homes, with financing from Wells Fargo Bank, has shown the confidence and commitment to Frederica to build this exciting new product,” stated Wayne Huizenga.
Traton has introduced a variety of new floor plans at Frederica with prices starting in the high $700,000s. This offering provides purchasers with a wide choice of home products at a price point that has not previously been available at Frederica.
Traton’s homes at Frederica will be designed with low country influences with most homes located either directly on the lake or with lake views. Exteriors will feature plans that blend with the natural environment and will have a classic understated elegance in respect of the natural beauty of the site. Warm color palettes with Hardi Board siding, board and batten, and brick or stone accents; cedar shake roof shingles; carriage garage doors; canopies, pergolas and cupolas; screened back porches and deep and inviting front porches with metal accent roofs are some of the design elements that will grace the homes’ exteriors.
Interior spaces will feature open and inviting designs that are perfect for relaxing and entertaining. Floor plans will include three to four bedrooms, each with its own bath, with master and guest suites on the main floor. Other features include 10-foot ceilings, wide-plank site finished hardwood floors, travertine flooring and gourmet island kitchens as well as open floor plans perfect for southern entertaining.
Homeowners will have access to all of Frederica’s incredible amenities through a membership in the Frederica Golf Club as well as the many shopping, dining and recreation opportunities that are abundant in the St. Simon’s area. The St. Simons Island Lighthouse, the Bloody Marsh Battle site and Fort Frederica National Monument are a few historic points of interest.
Frederica is just 35 minutes from Interstate I-95 and is a five hour drive to Atlanta and a 90 minute drive to Savannah.
