Springtime at Grandover! Part 2

With springtime comes temperate outdoor dining, graduations and relaxing Memorial Day plans. We invite you to experience spring and all of its pleasantries at Grandover, whether you’re walking through our lush gardens at dusk after a satisfying meal from Di Valletta or catching up with friends and family over a glass of wine on the patio after celebrating a graduation.

Warm afternoons and moderate evenings make spring the perfect time to enjoy dining al fresco on the patios of Café Espresso and Di Valletta Restaurant. Di Valletta’s outdoor patio offers an elegant setting overlooking our blooming gardens and golf course, making it a popular lunch and dinner destination for graduation celebrations and Sunday champagne brunch. The patio of Café Espresso is an ideal spot to relax and grab lunch outside after a good, or bad, round of golf.

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner and is a great opportunity to get outside and enjoy the weather. Take in the sweet scent of blossoming flowers and freshly cut grass as you tee off on our East or West course with friends and family. If spending your weekend at a slower pace is more your style, lounge poolside with a refreshing cocktail and good company or partake in a casual game of croquet or bocce ball on the lawn. To arrange your springtime activity, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

2014 Home Sales In North Carolina

The NC Association of Realtors Market Sales Statistics show that three areas in North Carolina stand out in home sales. It comes as no surprise that these areas are the most densely populated in the state or that these areas rank highest in employment, health care facilities, financial institutions, technology, and universities. These three state-central areas, ranked in descending order of home sales are Charlotte (on the border of North and South Carolina), the Triangle (encompassing the capitol city of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill), and the Triad (encompassing Winston Salem, Greensboro, and High Point). Charlotte residents experienced an increase of 4% in home sales over June of 2013 while the Triangle region saw an uptick of 6% in the same time frame.

nc neighborhood

Of the regional homes sales reported however, the largest increases in sales occurred in Hendersonville (32%), Fayetteville (23%), Asheville (22%), and Haywood County (22%). Of these four, only Fayetteville does not lie within the Appalachian mountain range along the border with Tennessee, likely making these sales of vacation cabins and cottages with potential rental income.

Statistically, the most popular home sizes are 3 or 4 bedrooms with at least 2.5 baths and a bonus room or office that can be used as a home office, guest room, craft or sewing area, media room, and the like. Most new homes constructed currently are no less than 1,800 square feet (not including attached garage) and are open-based floor plans with larger openings (or fewer walls) between adjoining living spaces, providing an open view and much more daylight to the heart of the home’s interior. Kitchens of today are laid out for the amateur as well as the professional chef alike, providing ample granite counter tops that do not stain, burn, discolor, chip, or crack, and lots of cabinet space for storage as well as sizable pantries for canned and dry goods. Stainless steel appliances are the most requested by new home builders.

luxury kitchens

Given that Charlotte and the Triangle are larger areas offering North Carolina luxury homes, the Triad has its own qualities about which to boast. To travel from Charlotte to the Triangle via Interstate – and vice versa – one must pass through the Triad. From the Triad it is about a one hour drive to Charlotte via I-85 and closer to one and a half hours to Raleigh via I-40. If you have business in all three areas or if partners within the same household are doing business in two or three regions, it makes perfect sense to reside in the Triad.

The Triad has many neighborhoods of luxury homes in North Carolina that provide the convenience of a central location, a short drive to anywhere in the state, East or West, North or South. At Grandover, our luxury homes and estates are nestled in quiet parklands only minutes from the junction of Interstate 40 and Interstate 85. Grandover residents enjoy year-round resort living and mild winters with an approximate driving distance of four hours or less to the most popular destinations in the state. Whether you love hiking and skiing in the mountains or the warm tropical breezes and sunshine of the beach, Grandover in the Triad puts you at the heart of it all.
