First Homeowners Now Reside In Avalaire Community

RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 28, 2017Avalaire, North Raleigh’s premier destination for luxury living, welcomed their first residents who are now officially this prestigious community home.

The first residents of Avalaire, made a local move from the nearby neighborhood of Bedford at Falls River, and are now living in Avalaire. They chose KJ Construction to build their luxury home with a value of over $1.3 million. They broke ground on this stunning prairie-style custom home in January and were swimming in their pool by Summer. Their home is a thoughtfully designed home with very clean modern lines and an open design that flows seamlessly through a wall of glass that folds away as they transition to their outdoor living areas poolside. KJ Construction is one of 9 award-winning builders in Avalaire and has two additional custom-designed homes underway with customers on the other home sites he owns in phase one.

Avalaire developer Mark MacDonald says of the 56 lots in the project’s first phase, 38 lots have been sold to nine participating builder groups with the first finished home opening in late July. Four other houses are under construction and another four houses have pre-sale contracts with builders and will be breaking ground soon. Avalaire is slated to have a total 93 wooded home lots, each averaging more than one acre.

All of the homes planned so far at Avalaire range in value from $1.25 million to more than $3 million, MacDonald says, with the average being around $1.75 million. Raleigh builder Rex Bost is expecting to showcase a custom speculative home he’s building at Avalaire that’s valued at $3.23 million by the opening of the annual Triangle Parade of Homes in late September. This home will also serve as the Sales Center for Avalaire.

Raleigh News & Observer calls Avalaire a sign that Triangle’s luxury housing market bouncing back

Recently, the Raleigh News & Observer took an in-depth look at Avalaire, saying the premier North Raleigh development is a sign that the luxury housing market in the Triangle is gaining strength. Avalaire developers Mark MacDonald and Pablo Reiter were interviewed for the story, which notes that at 160 acres Avalaire is “one of the few remaining sites of its size in North Raleigh.” New, custom luxury homes are so rare in North Raleigh, MacDonald says in the article, that most buyers are forced to look well outside of Raleigh, in northern Wake County, if they want homes above $1 million on expansive lots. “I think these buyers want to be closer in and have the amenities that Raleigh has with shopping and dining and being able to get on Interstate 540 easily,” MacDonald said. Rex Bost of Bost Custom Homes was also interviewed for the story, saying that there’s now pent-up demand for custom homes and large lots in the Triangle. “There just haven’t been any new neighborhoods hitting the market in quite some time,” Bost said.
