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.

A new Clifford Road Subdivision – 42 lots in planning
