Atlanta, GA (Vocus) March 23, 2009
Minerva Properties is pleased to announce the closing of the 900th home at Heron Bay Golf and Country Club. This milestone was reached earlier this month Thadius and Mindy Nesbitt closed on their new D.R. Horton home in the Meadow Glen neighborhood at Heron Bay. The Philadelphia couple is moving to the Henry County master-planned community to be closer to family and plan to move into their new home this summer.
“We wanted a place that was warm to retire to, so we actually first considered moving out of the country to somewhere tropical, but decided that we did not want to be that far away from family,” said Mindy. “With its resort-style amenities and convenient location to Thadius’ family in Atlanta, Heron Bay was the perfect community for us.”
The Nesbitts' home is the two story Fieldstone floorplan by award winning, national homebuilder, DR Horton Homes and includes five bedrooms with three bathrooms. Located on a wooded homesite in a quiet cul-de-sac that backs up to preserved greenspace, the spacious home is in a peaceful area surrounded by nature. The beautiful open concept floorplan features a two-story foyer flanked by formal living and dining rooms, large gourmet kitchen with center island, spacious family room with gas fireplace and a guest suite on the main level. The second floor includes an owners retreat with a luxurious bathroom with large bathtub and separate shower.
“We are very excited about this milestone,” said Heron Bay's Marketing Director, Lisa Brutvan. “It comes at a time when many communities are feeling the discouraging pressures of a down market. Reaching this significant milestone energizes us about the response of our homebuyers and prospective homebuyers to the lifestyle available at Heron Bay. It also proves the dedication of our staff and development team. We are excited about the success we have seen at Heron Bay and the momentum that we have moving forward.”
D.R. Horton and Heron Bay have worked hard to make the Nesbitts transition from Philadelphia to Atlanta's southern crescent as easy as possible. “Purchasing our new home has been a great experience due in large part to the customer service here at Heron Bay. Everyone from the development team to the builder to the sales agents have been extremely friendly, helpful and willing to make special accommodations for us, which can be difficult for someone moving from another state. They were the nicest people I have ever met in my life,” said Mindy.
In addition to their new home, the Nesbitts are looking forward to taking advantage of Heron Bay’s resort-style amenity package that includes an aquatic center, clubhouse, tennis center, lake, golf course, parks and more. The Nesbitts' new neighborhood, Meadow Glen, is a short stroll from an adjacent neighborhood park and right down the street from the golf clubhouse and grille.
