We have built our homes here since the community first opened and are just as excited now as we were then, as this community has maintained its momentum and advancement and will continue to grow in the years to come.
Atlanta, GA (Vocus) March 9, 2009
In October, Minerva Properties announced that D.R. Horton had contracted to purchase single family home sites in The Villas neighborhood in Heron Bay Golf and Country Club , the premier master-planned community in Atlanta's southern crescent. Minerva Properties is pleased to announce that D.R. Horton has agreed to purchase home sites in another two neighborhoods within Heron Bay, The Summit and Northridge. D.R. Horton is a national leader in the residential homebuilding industry and has built homes in four previous neighborhoods within Heron Bay, three of which are now sold out, with Meadow Glen likely to reach close-out by mid 2009. The opening of these three new neighborhoods will allow D.R. Horton to continue their successful selling strategies with a variety of different home design concepts at multiple price points.
The Villas, located along the 18th fairway of the Heron Bay golf course, offers a well designed collection of both ranch and master on the main homes priced from the $180,000s. Homes at The Summit are designed to fit any lifestyle, featuring innovative ranch plans and livable two-story family homes priced from the $190,000s. Northridge features D.R. Horton's Estate Series, which offers both sprawling ranch plans and large two-story homes with spacious owner's suites and gourmet kitchens, starting in the $220,000s. The Northridge community is located along the 7th hole of Heron Bay's golf course and many home sites offer lovely views of the course.
"We have had great success at Heron Bay and are very excited to continue our partnership with this community," said Tom F. Hill, Jr., Atlanta division president at D.R. Horton. "We have built our homes here since the community first opened and are just as excited now as we were then, as this community has maintained its momentum and advancement and will continue to grow in the years to come."
"Heron Bay is very happy to have this additional new home inventory," said Brian Davison, Co-Managing Partner of Minerva Properties, developer of Heron Bay Golf and Country Club. "Our community is strong and flourishing because we are able to offer new home shoppers stability through partnerships such as those with D.R. Horton, one of the nation's largest and most respected home builders."
Quality customer service is a key component of D.R. Horton's philosophy. Homebuyers have the ability to personalize their home with creative design choices in flooring, lighting, cabinetry, appliances and more. Professional builders guide the buyers through the home building process and make quality inspections along the way. Buyers have an orientation walkthrough with the builder before closing to review the new home and make sure the details are just right, and there is a scheduled 11-month walkthrough after the closing to ensure the new homeowners are satisfied.
In addition to a beautiful home, residents at Heron Bay Golf and Country Club enjoy an array of resort-style amenities. Heron Bay's amenity package includes various neighborhood parks including the recently opened Lakefront Park with covered pavilion, a tennis center, community sports field, miles of sidewalks and nature trails, community lodge with fitness center and the three-pool aquatic center with heated Junior Olympic pool for extended swim seasons. Residents may also choose to join Canongate for play on the beautiful and challenging 7,300 yard, par-72 golf course, or take advantage of non-motorized boating on Henry County's 1,100-acre Cole Reservoir, which is adjacent to Heron Bay.
To visit Heron Bay, take I-75 South to Exit 216. Turn right and proceed five miles to Heron Bay Golf and Country Club.
