Heron Bay Offers Retail Lot Program

Just south of Atlanta is luxury master-planned community, Heron Bay Golf and Country Club. A beautiful golf and lake community, Heron Bay  is currently offering buyers the opportunity to purchase 14 golf and lake lots at reduced prices. Lots range in price from $65 to $225, offering the buyer up to 75% off the purchase price. The lots also range in size from 1/2 acre to 1.5 acres and each offers excellent golf and lake views.

Developed by Minerva Properties, Heron Bay is the result of careful design and quality, integrity and professional expertise. Heron Bay was named the “Community of the Year” in 2005 by the Greater Atlanta Homebuilders Association, and was awarded the 2006 Grand Award for Outstanding Development by the Georgia Urban Forest Council for its efforts in the area of tree preservation.

Heron Bay is a community where homeowners ride bikes and children rollerblade around the beautifully landscaped streets, take sunrise hikes on one of many walking trails and greet their neighbors by name. The Heron Bay Community Association hosts regular events for its homeowners such as poolside luaus, business booster meet and greets, wine tastings, trivia night and screen on the green.

If you’re looking to live comfortably south of the city in a luxury new home community with resort style amenities, than Heron Bay is the place for you. The Sales and Information Center is open seven days a week and one of the Heron Bay staff members would be more than happy to give you a tour or answer any questions you might have about the Heron Bay retail lot program.

Luxury Golf Front Home in Flintrock Falls is Under Contract!

luxury custom homes in AustinWho says the luxury real estate market is dead? That does not appear to be the case in Austin, where Sterling Custom Homes recently began construction on a spec home in the Flintrock Falls master-planned community, and it is already under contract and set to close in early May.

The home is situated at 212 Black Wolf Run on a golf-front homesite that backs up to the fifth fairway of the Jack Nicklaus designed course. The floorplan is from Sterling’s new Platinum Collection and features an open layout with four bedrooms and four and one-half baths, plus a game room/media room and plenty of outdoor living areas. Due to the overwhelming popularity of this new collection of pre-designed homes, the
Austin custom home builder is already busy choosing the lot and plan for their next quick delivery home.

One of the great things about buying a Sterling “Quick Delivery” home is that the transition is smooth and easy. The contract was signed in the first week of April, and, at this time,
Sterling Custom Homes sat down with the buyers to discuss the details of the plans and make any necessary accommodations. Even still, the home will be ready for move-in the first week of May – only four weeks after the contract was signed.

Having built
custom homes in the Austin area for over 20 years, Sterling has extensive experience in the industry, which they used to design the home as well as help complete decisions for the buyer. Depending on the stage of construction, a buyer could make flooring, cabinetry and color changes to suit their taste and add their own customizations to the luxury Austin home.

Celebrating Easter with Heron Bay

Beautiful weather, lake-front views, great friends and neighbors and smiling happy children were just a few of the things that could be found at Heron Bay Golf and Country Club’s Easter Extravaganza celebration.

Held at the lakefront park, the Easter Extravaganza was full of fun in the sun. Easter Egg Hunts, hula hoop contests, limbo contest and Bunny Hop Sack races were just a few of the activities children could take part in. There was also a craft table set up so that the little ones could plant their  flower seeds into little pots.

The weather was perfect for the event and the lakefront park could not have been more beautiful. With ample green space, a covered pavilion, several picnic tables, two fire-pits and wooden swings, residents of the Atlanta lake community have a beautiful outdoor get-away right in their backyards.

The Easter Extravaganza is just one of many Heron Bay community wide celebrations that take place throughout the year. Upcoming events include the annual Community Wide Garage Sale, April Earth Day Celebration, June Pool Party and the August Dive-In Movie to name a few. Each event is guaranteed to be be packed with residents, friends and family and they are always a blast. The community events and activities are just one reason why this Henry County master-planned community is one of the most popular communities in Locust Grove.
