CHARLOTTE, NC- February 24, 2015 – Eastwood Homes is continuing to grow throughout the Charlotte Metro area. The privately held Charlotte-based builder will be celebrating the grand opening of three new communities in the spring of 2015.
The first new community to launch this year will be the Village of Selkirk in Berewick. Located in the Steele Creek area, Berewick has been a top selling community for several years. Continuing that trend, Eastwood began preselling in December, and several choice homesites have already been reserved. The developer of Berewick is Pappas Properties, highly regarded in our area for their development of such successful properties as Phillips Place, Birkdale Village, and the Metropolitan. Several factors have contributed to the popularity of this particular master-planned community. Berewick is located conveniently close to highway travel, boat access to Lake Wylie, and just minutes from the new Charlotte Premium Outlets. Resort-style amenities include the 5,200 square foot Manor House resident clubhouse, a fitness center, Junior Olympic swimming pool, and miles of walking and biking trails. Eastwood Homes offers a wide selection of floorplans to suit any lifestyle, including single-story homes, first-floor master plans, 2- and 3-story homes starting in the mid $200’s. Construction on their model home is nearing completion. The spacious Hamilton model features 5 bedrooms, one of which comprises a first-floor guest suite. The home also boasts sought-after features such as a first floor study and a well-designed kitchen with a sizeable central island.
Eastwood Homes is now taking reservations in Robinson Oaks, a new luxury community off of Hudson Boulevard in Gastonia. Homes in Robinson Oaks are priced in the mid $200’s and include designer exteriors such as hardi-plank siding, brick, and stone, plus side entry and three car garage options. The community amenities will include a dog park, pool, and clubhouse. Eastwood Homes will offer 8 flexible floor plans including single story, first-floor master plans, two and three story homes. Construction of the Davidson model home is expected to be complete in late April. The Davidson model, one of Eastwood’s most popular plans, features a first floor guest suite, up to 6 bedrooms, and an optional 3rd floor bedroom suite or bonus room.
Eastwood Homes is eager to join the efforts already underway in Kellswater Bridge, a master-planned community in Kannapolis, NC. The community is located at Rogers Lake Road and Kannapolis Parkway, roughly three miles from Interstate 85 Exit 54 and encompasses approximately 400 acres, including a multi-million dollar clubhouse with a pool, sports courts, fitness center, and picnic shelter. Award-winning developer LStar Management is responsible for the design of the expansive community. Eastwood Homes is developing new floorplans and elevations to suit the neighborhood requirements and to complement the beautiful existing homes in the community. The builder will offer ranch plans, first-floor master bedroom homes, 2- and 3-story homes. The team at Eastwood Homes will roll out their new line of floorplans and begin construction on their model home in the early spring.
Eastwood has been building in the Carolinas since 1977 and continues to delight buyers with homes of exceptional quality and outstanding craftsmanship. The Homebuilders Association of Charlotte twice named Eastwood Homes the Builder of the Year for the greater Charlotte area, and also recognized the builder with an award for Customer Service of the Year. Eastwood Homes offers single family and townhomes in 20 communities in the greater Charlotte area.

The FHA has lowered its annual mortgage insurance premiums by 50 basis points, from 1.35 percent to 0.85 percent. Lower mortgage insurance premiums are going to allow people to afford more home on the same budget!
