For small-town atmosphere and big-city conveniences, consider Holly Glen neighborhood in Holly Springs, off Avent Ferry Road near Highway 55. Holly Glen is a large planned community with abundant amenities, namely a swimming pool with a water slide, tennis courts and a clubhouse. The Overlook at Holly Glen is the newest section, available through K. Hovnanian Homes.
Holly Glen offers great value for buyers who want a little more house for their money. Sales Consultant Joyce Boals attests you’ll get a “great house for a great price.“ K Hovnanian’s homes vary from 2,200 squarefeet to 3,500 square.feet and start at $229,000. The builder offers eight different floor plans, which feature spacious master suites and secondary bedrooms. One of the most popular add-ons is the morning room, a small sitting room off the breakfast area. “The morning room is a nice feature. A lot of people like that feature; it gives them a quaint little area that they can enjoy and read the morning newspaper or favorite book,” said Boals.
Boals says homes in Holly Glen qualify for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development housing loans. The program provides financing options for qualifying homeowners in government-designated rural areas, as an effort to draw people to less populated land. The quickly growing Holly Springs may have slipped one by the local Rural Development office, and residents can take advantage of attractive loan packages with low payments and PMI.
Southwest of both Cary and Raleigh, Holly Springs requires a bit longer commute for those traveling to RTP, but the new Triangle Expressway and the future completion of I-540 will make the area even more accessible.
Wake County Schools Holly Grove Elementary and Middle and Holly Springs High School are all within walking distance of Holly Glen. Downtown Holly Springs (and the recently reopened Holly Springs Farmers Market) is just minutes away. The nearby shopping and services are quickly catching up to the explosion of residential growth. Just don’t tell Rural Development.
