WAKE FOREST, N.C. – May 11, 2017 – The highly-anticipated Del Webb community in the award-winning master-planned community of Traditions at Wake Forest, is now open for pre-selling. The 164-acre active adult community features 452 homesites with wooded walking trails, nearly 40 acres of green space, and will feature an 18,000-square-foot amenity complex featuring a clubhouse with an outdoor recreation area.
“With hundreds of people on our interest list, it’s clear that there is great demand for Del Webb at Traditions, which is Wake Forest’s largest and newest 55+ community,” says David Carrier, president of the Company’s Raleigh Division. “With its great location and rich community lifestyle, we can expect a lot of interest from baby boomers who are looking to downsize in place and stay within the Wake Forest area, and from grandparents migrating into the Raleigh area to be close to family.”
Baby boomers and empty-nesters wanting to live in Wake Forest now have even more home choices available in the new Del Webb at Traditions community with nine new home designs, featuring one-story living ranging from 1,655-3,689+ sq. ft. with 2-4 bedrooms, spacious open living area with room for entertaining and options such as two-story living with loft space, laundry room next to the owner’s suite and fixed attic staircases. Average sales prices start in the mid $300s.

“Variety is what these floor plans offer, whether you’re downsizing from your existing residence or wishing for a spacious home great for entertaining with a large chef's kitchen," added Mr. Carrier.
“We developed these great floor plans based on what the active adult buyer told us they wanted in a Del Webb home. For boomers specifically, they don’t need as much square footage dedicated to bedrooms compared to the years they were rearing a family. With these open, spacious floor plans, there is a perfect home to fit their lifestyle needs.”
