Average Rating for this Community

This is our fourth home and our second new construction and we are very happy with Fernmoor. We had minor issues with our floor, but they came to fix it in a fairly short period of time considering COVID. They were very thorough and friendly. The neighborhood community itself is filled with the nicest people I have ever met.


We absolutely love our new home here at Heritage Creek. Homes and Community are beautiful. Walking distance to Charming little town of Milton, and great Neighbors! We have built numerous homes over the years and this was the best experience we've ever had. Highly recommend!


I am so pleased with my new home here! If you want curb appeal Heritage Creek is perfect. I love the beautiful landscaping, front porches, pretty flowers and the unique architecture of the homes.The builders are fantastic and have made this experience wonderful for us.
Living so close to the ocean is a bonus! There is a lot to do and discover locally and up or down the coastal towns. It's a wonderful place to call home for retirement.


Visited friends over the summer at Heritage Creek and as I sat around the pool I heard all kinds of horror stories. Pretty community but changed my mind about ever buying here as I had originally planned to do. Very poor finish carpentry work. Squeaky floors, flooding basements, out of square walls, cracks in walls, water coming in around windows, siding falling off. Project managers unresponsive.


The houses are nice and a decent value compared to surrounding communities. Problems, though, with a community still under construction, and with shoddy finishing work. PLUS -- many basements leak, and when it rains hard the streets flood which brings water into places where it shouldn't be. Frustrating. I have tried to get upper management involved without success thus far.


My wife and I recently purchased a new construction home in Heritage Creek and my wife and I are both less than satisfied with condition of the home. Certain pieces of the hardwood floors in main living/dining room are "squishy" when step you on them. We are told this is normal deflection in the hardwood/subfloor, but that doesn't seem right. Our main bedroom and another spare bedroom on the 1st floor also have noticeable ridges in the subfloor that you can feel through the carpeting. Certainly not something you would expect in a new construction home with upgraded carpets and padding. Upstairs in the hallway to a spare bedroom there is a elevation change in the floor. As you walk from the loft down the hallway you can feel the floor raise up, almost like a small ramp into the hallway. Once again that's not something that either my wife and I were prepared for in a new construction home. I have no experience with building a home, but as someone who purchased a brand new home I can tell you that I expected my floors to be flat and that the hardwood would feel solid when walking across it. I would say that our experience so far has been very underwhelming and left us somewhat dissatisfied with the total project.
