Mattamy Homes recently closed on an 100-acre property, known as The Grove at Gin Branch, in Wendell, North Carolina. The community will include single-family homes from 2,300 to 3,500 square feet, with anticipated opening pricing from the upper $300s.

The builder is offering floor plans from its Southern collection on 100-foot homesites. Ranch and two-story variations will be available with a variety of exterior styles. Mattamy will offer various options per plan including first-floor guest suites, game rooms, morning rooms, screened or covered porches, and an owner's bath oasis. Per plan, some homes will offer flex rooms that double as a study or home office.

"We're excited about the lifestyle possibilities that our new community will offer to Wendell-area homeowners," says Bob Wiggins, president of Mattamy's Raleigh division. "The Grove at Gin Branch will have peaceful country charm and a rural feel while remaining near all the conveniences of Raleigh and nearby towns."

The community backs up to Turnipseed Nature Preserve, a 265-acre park with gardens, trails, interpretive exhibits, and open play areas. The adjacent parkland—along with the community's own resident-exclusive pond, green spaces, and pocket park—preserves a sense of surrounding nature for residents.

Residents will also enjoy convenient proximity to shopping, dining, events, and culture. The neighborhood's location has three downtowns nearby: Wendell, Knightdale, and Clayton. This puts boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops, breweries, galleries, and community events within easy reach.

Major transportation corridors are also nearby, allowing an easy commute to major employment centers. The boundaries of the neighborhood straddle county lines, so residents will be served by both Wake County and Johnston County schools depending on their homesite location.

Mattamy Homes expects to open The Grove at Gin Branch for sales in mid-2023.
