Carolina Arbors by Del Webb has been named The Best New Active Adult Community for 2013 by the team at 55 Places. The July grand opening drew nearly 2,500 active adult visitors excited to learn more about Del Webb's newest 55+ community in the highly sought after Triangle area of North Carolina.
Corporate Communications Manager for PulteGroup, Inc., Valerie Dolenga, says the popular new community in the city of Durham is attracting a mix of local Triangle area home buyers, as well as boomers from the Midwestern states. "About two-thirds are still working and/or are purchasing in pre-retirement – all who don’t want to delay any further their enjoyment of an active lifestyle and without having to move away from their family and the familiarity of the community where they’ve spent much of their lives. This new Del Webb neighborhood offers all the benefits of 55+ living and allows homeowners to have family and friends nearby."
The fantastic location of Carolina Arbors puts residents within minutes of everyday conveniences, world-class healthcare and an abundance of shopping and dining. The Triangle area offers excellent recreational opportunities to explore while the community's 34,000 square foot clubhouse is in the planning and development stage. The state-of-the-art facility is expected to break ground in Spring or Summer 2014 with an anticipated completion in early 2015.
Sales have been strong at Carolina Arbors with more than 55 percent of the homes sold from the initial offering of select home sites. Over 100 of the projected 1,256 homes are sold and over 60 residents are currently living within the community. A Lifestyle Director is now on-staff coordinating special events and social gatherings to support the development of a rich and rewarding active adult lifestyle.
Homebuyers will be impressed with the selection of 12 unique floor plans, 11 of which are available to tour as decorated models. While most of the homes are single-story ranch designs, some offer an optional second story loft space that's becoming increasingly popular with active adult homebuyers. The Del Webb designed homes start from 1,152 square feet and go up to 2,562 square feet with floor plans featuring one to four bedrooms. All of the homes offer low-maintenance living with exterior landscape and lawn care included in the reasonable monthly homeowner association fee.
Del Webb offers out-of-town buyers a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Del Webb and the local area with their Explore Del Webb Program. For a reasonable rate interested homebuyers can come stay in the area, tour the decorated model homes and meet with a resident ambassador to learn first hand what it's like living in a Del Webb community.
Months of meticulous planning went into designing and preparing for Carolina Arbors to soar as the most sought-after new active adult community in the Raleigh-Durham area. The excitement of a successful grand opening and the anticipation of breaking ground on the world-class amenity center is sure to bring continued success to Del Webb's latest retirement destination.
