New Home Communities in the Wake County School District

Posted on March 11, 2024 in LIVING IN NC

The cities and towns that make up Wake County, NC, are known for providing a quality lifestyle. These places continue to grow because of the many benefits of living there, like the outstanding schools. With this demand, New Home Inc. is building new home communities in the Wake County School District.

What cities and towns are in Wake County?

Wake County has a population of 1,175,000, making it the most populated county in North Carolina and one of the fastest growing counties in the country. The county seat—and state capital—is Raleigh, which is ranked #3 on U.S. News’ 2024 list of the best places to live in the U.S.

Cary, NC, lies just beyond the borders of Raleigh, and it’s a sizable place on its own, with more than 186,000 residents.

In addition to the larger places to live in Wake County, there is a variety of smaller cities and towns:

  • Apex
  • Fuquay-Varina
  • Garner
  • Holly Springs
  • Knightdale
  • Morrisville
  • Rolesville
  • Wake Forest
  • Wendell
  • Zebulon

Each city and town has its own character and benefits, but they share the friendly hospitality that’s part of the North Carolina culture!

How good are the schools in Wake County?

These cities and towns also share the commitment to quality education. The Wake County Public School District provides academic excellence to the area it serves. ranks schools and districts around the country, citing criteria like student progress, student:teacher ratio, test scores, and college readiness (for high schools). The 192 schools within Wake County earn high marks overall. The importance of finding a home served by a good school district has prompted many families to relocate within Wake County.

In particular, Fuquay-Varina, NC, is a Raleigh suburb that offers a desirable lifestyle that includes outstanding schools. New Home Inc., one of the new home builders in Wake County, NC, continues to develop communities in this town to accommodate the people who want to live here—and the different homestyles they want to choose from!

New Home Communities Growing in Fuquay-Varina, NC

The population of Fuquay-Varina, NC, has increased from 17,937 in 2010 to 40,810 in 2022. That’s 167% growth! With more people wanting to buy new homes in Fuquay-Varina, New Home Inc. chose to bring our innovative “Future-Proof” homes approach to this exciting town. 

Look at the new home communities in Wake County’s thriving town of Fuquay-Varina.

Sippihaw Springs

This small neighborhood of just 16 homes is situated just minutes from US-401, the main roadway that takes you north to Raleigh, and the same road that leads to Downtown Fuquay-Varina. Sippihaw Springs backs up to a wooded area that adds privacy to this convenient location.

The homesites for Sippihaw Springs' new homes range from about a quarter-acre to nearly a half-acre in size. No matter which lot you choose, the cul-de-sac layout ensures you’ll have solitude.

While the community’s location and small size add to the appeal of living in Sippihaw Springs, it’s the homes themselves that will convince you that the neighborhood is the perfect fit. New Home Inc. has selected a portfolio of new home designs that offer a variety of styles and an equally wide range of sizes. Choose from floor plans that give you 1,871 to nearly 3,200 square feet of interior living space. If you prefer single-level living, look at The Clayton, a truly versatile ranch home that can be personalized to your needs and style.

Our 2-story floor plans feature curb appealing exteriors. With each one, you choose the details that transform the look—from Craftsman to Modern Farmhouse to French Country or your own blend!

With just 16 homes planned for this community, the opportunity to own one of Sippihaw Springs’ new homes is very limited. If the neighborhood and location interest you, please let us know!

Gardner Farms

New Home Inc. recently launched Gardner Farms and we’ve already sold more than half of the homesites we released!

Gardner Farms’ new homes are located in Willow Springs, just beyond the border Fuquay-Varina. The allure of Gardner Farms is the size of the lots—ranging from a half-acre to 2 acres, a rare find in such a sought-after Raleigh suburb! One of our larger new home communities in Wake County, NC, Gardner Farms will feature 43 single-family homes, not a big neighborhood by many standards, but we prefer to develop neighborhoods where people can enjoy the value that “less is more”.

The floor plans for Gardner Farms give you what you want most: a choice. We develop every home design with flexibility in mind. So, whether you want 1,800 square feet or more than 3,000, you can find what you’re looking for. Then, we give you options for shaping the plan into the home you’ve envisioned. 

Gardner Farms’ new homes also offer close proximity to Fuquay-Varina and neighboring Angier, two towns with so much to offer, including the excellence of the Wake County School District. New Home Inc.’s vision for the community is distinctive homes surrounded by spacious and beautifully landscaped yards. Drive along the tree-lined streets that end in a cul-de-sac. Wave at the familiar faces of your neighbors. And then come home to a sight that instills pride and joy.

Woodbridge South

Among our new home communities in Wake County, NC, are the few remaining lots and move-in ready homes at Woodbridge South.

You still have your pick of homesites that offer .58 of an acre to as large as 1.24 acres! This is your chance to live large in a modern home within a country setting, surrounded by trees. You’re not far from the charming downtown districts—two of them!—of Fuquay-Varina, the area’s parks and amenities, and the main roads that lead you to Raleigh. But it will feel like you’re out in the country.

For Woodbridge South, we’ve curated new home designs that enhance the neighborhood’s curb appeal. These designs—from 1,871 to 3,145 square feet—are extremely versatile.

Springwood Townes

Have you considered the benefits that come with townhome living? How does low-maintenance in a modern home as large as many single-family homes sound? Some individuals welcome the lock-and-leave lifestyle of an attached home. If you’re one of them, and you want to live within the Wake County School District, plan to look at Springwood Townes.

New Home Inc. is developing this neighborhood of 3-story townhomes just minutes outside of Downtown Fuquay, at the intersection of South Main Street and Judd Parkway. From your home, you can walk to the shops, restaurants, entertainment, and splash park. 

Springwood Townes’ new construction townhomes range from 1,800 to 2,322 square feet, with up to 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. You can easily accommodate your family, with room to spare. Our floor plans are designed with flexibility, like spacious lofts and a room that functions productively as a home office.

Every unit includes a 1-car garage, along with the many other features we include in our Future-Proof single-family homes. 

Whether you’ve explored townhomes or not yet thought about this style for your new home, New Home Inc. encourages you to plan a tour of Springwood Townes. Come and see the quick move-in units available and the options for building here.

New Home Inc. is changing home building in NC!

The name “New Home” isn’t just a reflection of us being a builder. When we created this company, we wanted to stand out among the new home builders in Wake County NC. 

The mission of New Home Inc. was—and is—to elevate the standards of home building and home buying. We conducted extensive research into what people and families want in their homes now. And it’s different from just a few years ago. Life has changed. Homes need to change to keep up with it.

For example, households have dramatically increased the number of home deliveries. From meals and groceries to just about anything needed, we’re getting it shipped directly to home. To protect those packages, New Home Inc. designed the Smart Door Delivery Center. This fully enclosed, climate-controlled space is located between your front exterior door and the interior door that accesses your foyer. The Smart Door Delivery Center is controlled by a smart lock. The delivery person receives a code to gain entry only to the enclosed space. They leave your package, close the door, and it automatically locks.

But that’s just one way we’ve looked ahead to see how we can build homes today that will grow with you in the future. Here are a few:

  • Smart home automation package that provides security (video doorbell, smart lock), convenience (smart home network panel), and energy efficiency (smart thermostat)
  • Electric vehicle charging station rough-in so that when you need it, the installation is simple
  • ecoSelect Home Efficiency Program that certifies your home’s efficiency
  • Whole home air filtration system to protect the indoor air quality
  • Oversized kitchen island with seating on 3 sides to accommodate more people
  • “Messy kitchen” service pantry that adds a serving, storage, and clean-up space beyond your kitchen, reducing the clutter and traffic
  • CAT6 cabling for strong, reliable connections without dead zones
  • And don’t forget about the importance of pet-friendly spaces!
