The trailblazing group of baby boomers began moving in last month, gathering at the new Welcome Center and cultivating friendships and planning activities while neighborhood amenities are being built.
In phase one, 50 of the 165 homes already have been spoken for, according to Sales Consultant Molly O'Brien, with many homebuyers anxious to meet their neighbors and entertain.
“Baby boomers are a social bunch,” she said. “They want to be active and engage with their friends and neighbors. And while some are still working, when the day is over, they want to gather with friends and keep going.”
New resident Gayle Hardison, who has not yet retired, made the move from Texas to be closer to her daughter and grandkids, but didn’t know anyone else in Wake Forest. She quickly learned how easy it is to make friends, thanks in part to events and activities planned by Del Webb’s fulltime lifestyle director.
“I’ve lived overseas, on the West Coast, Midwest and then in Houston for years,” Hardison said. “But this immediately felt like home. This is where I want to be.”
Located a mile from the quaint Wake Forest downtown area and Main Street, when complete Del Webb at Traditions will have a total of 452 homes.
The 18,000 square foot Lifestyle center will become the social hub when finished at year’s end. Here, residents can swim year-round in the four-season pool and spa, work out in the fitness center, learn fresh cooking skills using veggies from the community garden or simply relax with friends over a glass of wine. Additional outdoor amenities will include a dog park and courts for tennis, pickle ball and bocce.
Nine single-story home designs are being offered, with one-story living from 1,655 square-feet to 3,689 square feet and two to four bedrooms and an open living area with room for entertaining. Options include a second floor with loft space, a laundry room next to the owner’s suite and fixed attic staircases with average sales prices starting in the mid $300,000s.
Four professionally decorated model homes have been completed, including the Dunwoody Way, which won the 2017 Wake County Triangle Parade of Homes Bronze award in the $501,00 to $525,000 category.
Located within the master planned Traditions community, at 905 Del Webb Manor Avenue, hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesday and Sunday noon to 5 p.m.
