Country Walk Could be a New Gem in Garner

DR Horton Homes got their Master Plan approved by the Garner Planning for Country Walk.  It will next go to Town Council for their approval.   The 130-acre site plan includes 337 units, 215 homes, and 122 townhouses.  What makes these stand apart from the site plans over the last couple of years is the mix of homes and townhomes as well as a clubhouse and pool.  Preliminary plans show a level of townhomes that are not standard to the current market, one with an attached 1 car garage.  The exact square footage number will not be available until they submit a site plan with all the technical specifications.  Country Walk is the latest version for White Oak Farms which was approved several years ago.  Like wine, the plan has gotten better with time and should be a higher standard with the amenities they plan to offer.  The homes should only be at a density of 2.6 max per acre, less than the norm for their zoning.  The location is just down White Oak Rd, off Hebron Church Road and Ackerman Rd.  and in close proximity to East Garner High.  The area has been a hot spot of late with 2 other subdivisions under development now and 2 new ones tabled to next months planning meeting.  The new East Garner High and Bryan Elementary area should see 1,000 new lots by 2020.

Glen Creek – 83 lots with all built out – link
Oak Park – 212 lots – link
Clifford Grove – 115 lots – link
A new Clifford Road Subdivision – 42 lots in planning
A new Bryan Road Subdivision – 19 lots in planning

Van-Tique Barber Shop – Like No Other Around

Van-Tique Barber Shop – Like No Other Around

Just two months ago, in June, a new barber shop opened up in Garner. Not the same old cookie cutter model everyone’s used to, but something unique, different and very YOU SENSITIVE. The name, “Van-Tique Barber Shop”. The shop is located in Aversboro Square, off the Aversboro Road.

The Van-Tique has an atmosphere that feels like hanging out with friends in a garage. It makes it seem like you are just having a beer with your guys while watching a sport match or just having a good conversation with them. As soon as a customer walks into the shop, he is welcomed, offered a seat and a FREE chilled drink to go with it. The shop has Several TVs that show sporting events, positioned in different places around its walls. And sometimes, other shows are played, just at intervals, to keep all customers engaged while they wait their turn.

Each barber station is not just the normal cabinet but a tool chest. Everything and anything you need for the best haircuts are available. If you looked around the store, you would see things like, Gasoline signs, license plates, 55 gallon barrels with sinks cut in, and so much more. All to help your comfort in making it seem like your garage.

A pneumatic retractable airline hangs by each sink ready to clear out any loose hairs left. You would never see hair lying around. Just above the towel warmer is a memorial to owner Jay Stephens father, William Stephens. He was hanging drywall in the shop while preparing to open when he suffered a heart attack and passed away.

Feel free and welcomed to check out the Van-Tique Barbers shop. Just Come by and see Jay Stephens or Daryl Stuart the next time you are looking to get a haircut. They are open every day from Tuesday to Friday between the hours of 8:00am – 6:30pm. And on Saturdays, they open by 8:00am and close by 2:00pm. While Mondays are left strictly for customers on Appointment.

Contact them via this Number, (919-673-7613).
