October 19, 2015 –Wendell Falls, a new master-planned community in eastern Wake County, kicked off its first year in Wake County’s Annual Parade of Homes with five home awards, including four Gold accolades.


“The 50th Annual Parade of Homes provides the perfect opportunity for Wendell Falls to showcase the innovative designs and quality craftsmanship of our award-winning builder team,” said Shannon McSwiney, marketing director, Newland Communities. “It’s these distinctive features and creative plans that have earned our builders such well-deserved accolades as we continue to share the incredible lifestyle available at Wendell Falls.”


The Wendell Falls portion of the parade includes seven single-family homes by five builders, including Homes By Dickerson, Garman Homes, Fresh Paint by Garman, M/I Homes and Lennar. Ranging from the $180s to the high $300s, the floor plans tout creative lifestyle features, such as outdoor waterfalls and ceilings crafted from reclaimed wood. All homes in Wendell Falls are third-party green certified through ecoSelect, a green building program by Southern Energy Management that ensures superior air and water quality.  


“We’re excited to welcome Wendell Falls as one of our newest participants,” said Judy Richardson, vice president of education and Parade of Homes, Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County. “The Annual Parade of Homes is a fantastic opportunity for the public to experience the freshest products in the market, and with so many homes in one location, Wendell Falls will be a great addition to the tour."

Homebuyers who sign contracts between October 3 and November 22, 2015 will receive a choice of free personal lawn maintenance for one year, free HOA dues for one year, three additional pool memberships for 2016 or a weekly lunch for two people at Grounds Café for one year.
