Chesapeake Homes, one of Hampton Roads, Virginia’s leading builders, today announced their expansion into the Triangle market. Backed by L.M. Sandler & Sons, Inc., one of the largest privately owned developers of master-planned communities in the U.S., Chesapeake Homes North Carolina’s first project is in 12 Oaks, Wakefield Development Company’s newest high-end, master-planned community in Holly Springs.
Paul Luck, an award-winning, second generation homebuilder, will head up the North Carolina Division of Chesapeake Homes. Mr. Luck brings over 20 years of management experience for a variety of large companies in the homebuilding industry. Most recently, Mr. Luck worked as a consultant for L.M. Sandler & Sons, Inc. where he negotiated the public-private venture to build 1,300 homes for the U.S. Navy and provided consulting services for future development projects in the Mid-Atlantic markets.
“Given our success in the Virginia market, together with the opportunity to build in award-winning communities developed by Wakefield Development Company, we believe this to be a tremendous opportunity to build our brand in the Triangle area,” said Luck.
Chesapeake Homes North Carolina will build a mix of Colonial, Traditional and Craftsman-style homes in the 687-acre 12 Oaks community, which is located off the new Highway 55 bypass. Prices range from the $290s to the $360s and homebuyers can choose from several floor plans offering 2,100 to 3,000 square feet of living space with multiple elevations.
A classic southern community, 12 Oaks features a Nicklaus Design Group 18-hole golf course and offers a sports club including fitness, tennis and an aquatic center scheduled to open in late 2008. Double tree-lined sidewalks, parks, playgrounds and abundant landscaping add to the streetscape of southern architecture. A gracious antebellum-style clubhouse, scheduled for a 2009 opening, will feature a golf pro shop, men’s and women’s locker rooms, casual and formal dining and a ballroom.
“We chose 12 Oaks as our first project because we wanted to be a part of the Holly Springs community and the growth the area is experiencing,” said Luck. “Wakefield Development Company’s proven track record of delivering on its vision made this a perfect opportunity to launch into this market.”
