Sanford, NC

We have Two Subdivisions we are developing in Sanford

Carbonton Cove

………In harmony with nature.

Carbonton Cove is the perfect place for a new home in Sanford. This tranquil setting by a still pond has trails for walking, jogging, or biking. . .trails that meander though this beautiful wooded development and around the lake. There are natural buffers and greenbelts, and wild flowers in bloom. It is one of Sanford’s newest communities. . .one that has been designed for your enjoyment . . .in harmony with nature, yet close enough to town for your convenience. All homes will incorporate the right balance between sustainability and practicality, helping to save your energy dollars while protecting your environment.

The patio homes on Auguston Court offer the opportunity to downsize without sacrificing the quality to which you have been accustomed. The larger estate lots on Lake James Place overlook the lake and are large enough for that custom home you may be planning. And the wooded lots on Bucktail Lane provide the right setting for a home with the rustic elegance that is in keeping with its environment.

So come see for yourself. Bridgewater Drive, the main entry, intersects Carbonton Road one mile west of Cool Springs Road. Take a stroll around the pond or rest at the gazebo by the footbridge. Choose from 9 patio home sites, 5 lakefront estate lots, or 12 wooded lots which will be available in Phase I. This architecturally controlled community may be just the place for you to enjoy life in harmony with nature. Carbonton Cove. . .a place where nature, luxury, and heritage all come together.

Auguston Court

Auguston Court features 9 “patio homes”. Patio Homes, those situated on smaller lots and clustered together, combine the independence of a single family home with the convenience of a low maintenance lawn. A homeowner’s association will provide lawn care and maintain the common areas to enable the resident to enjoy the privacy of their home without the responsibility of routine yard work. However the lots are large enough so that a flower garden can be incorporated around the patio or the yard can be personalized to the owner’s individual style.

Bridgewater Cottages

Cottage style homes on smaller lots are featured on Bridgewater Drive in the Carbonton Cove Development. This section, similar to townhomes, harkens back to row style houses with all homes situated on ten narrow contiguous lots. Each home is landscaped for privacy and requires minimal yard maintenance. The cottages are available in various plans adaptable to accommodate three bedrooms or two bedrooms and a study, with either plan having a spacious master suite.

Bucktail Lane

Rustic Elegance. That’s what this section is all about. A quiet cul de sac off of Bridgewater Drive provides the perfect setting for 12 “Manor Homes”. Most of these wooded lots are about ½ acre but several will be increased in size very soon when some adjacent property is incorporated into the overall site plan. Homes in this street-scaped section are expected to be 2400 sf and up, depending on the lot size, and will feature stone, shake, and brick construction to provide a rustic appeal with an elegant quality that will endure for years. Manor Homes in this section- those that reside on a larger lot but not so large as to be an “estate”- will create an upscale neighborhood unique to the Sanford market.

Lake James Place

Lake James Place features 5 large lots over looking the lake on the north side.  These lots are approximately .75 acres and are situated on high ground providing a stately setting for a custom home with a commanding view.  They have easy access to the nature trail and to other areas of the community as well. A larger home of 3000 sf or more is the type intended for this section and, subject to architectural compatibility, can be either a style of your own choosing or one created especially for you by one of our custom builders.
