Eastwood Homes recently celebrated the grand opening of its newly remodeled sales center and model home in their popular Knightdale community, The Preserve at Rockbridge.
The Preserve at Rockbridge was the premier Raleigh-area community for Eastwood Homes. The doors to the original model home opened in 2010. Since that time, more than 150 families have chosen to call Rockbridge their home.
Over the course of the four years since the community opened, Eastwood has introduced several new floorplans and redesigned the most popular plans from their lineup. One such plan is the Cypress II, which the merchandised model home in Rockbridge. The plan remains the top selling home for Eastwood Homes across most of its 6 divisions, and as such, Eastwood is continuously updating it to reflect current trends. Because it is still a top selling plan, Eastwood chose to up fit the existing model home to reflect the current plan design and upgrade options offered.
The award-winning Cypress plan has been popular because of its flexible options and effective use of space. The most updated version of the plan starts at 2400 square feet, and includes a formal dining room and full bedroom and bath on the first floor. The second floor includes 3 bedrooms and an ample loft, which can be converted to an optional 5th bedroom. The Cypress can be built with an optional 3rd floor bonus room or bedroom with full bath. With several interesting exterior elevation options including one elevation with a second floor porch, the Cypress offers options for nearly every buyer.
In addition to the Cypress, Eastwood Homes offers 6 floor plan options in Rockbridge, starting in the $190’s. Designs include ranch plans, master-down, 2- and 3-story homes with a variety of detailed exterior elevation options.
To ensure that the builder continues to offer options well-suited to the target buyer, Eastwood Homes hosted a Realtor Focus Group in Rockbridge on May 1st. During this catered event, Eastwood representatives gathered information from top selling area-realtors to help them plan the future of Rockbridge. Jim Cox, Vice-President of Sales for the Raleigh Division of Eastwood Homes, commented, “We understand the importance of our relationship with the Realtor community. They have a pulse on what the general public is looking for in a new home, so we were pleased to have a good turnout for our focus group event. We will use the information gathered to determine our pricing and options for this community going forward.”
In addition to the Rockbridge, Eastwood Homes builds in 9 other Triangle-area communities with prices from the $150’s to the $300’s. In the business of building new homes since 1977, the team at Eastwood Homes is committed to building homes of exceptional value and outstanding craftsmanship throughout the Southeast.
