Meritage Homes on Thursday announced the grand opening of its new community, Brickyard in Cary, N.C., which pays tribute to North Carolina’s deep history as the nation’s former brick capital. Named to honor the hardworking men and women bricklayers who have built the flourishing state, Brickyard offers historic appeal without sacrificing on modern features and energy-efficient design.
With demand for new homes increasing among buyers who want to avoid rocketing rents, Meritage Homes designed this line of homes to include many features typical in more expensive homes such as expansive kitchens with large islands and granite countertops as well as upgraded cabinets, laundry rooms, plumbing fixtures and high-performing, energy-efficient appliances. Located on an old brick manufacturing site right off the I-540 freeway, Brickyard is in close proximity to parks, restaurants, shopping and entertainment.
Consisting of 401 new home sites and a mix of townhomes and single-family homes, the community offers 12 floor plans with three- and four-bedroom options that range from approximately 1,700 to 2,800 square feet, with prices starting in the low $300,000s. Many of the homes are available for quick move-in and are expertly designed to appeal to a variety of home buyers from first-timers to families with children as well as move-down buyers. Homes are currently available for sale and community highlights include:
- Ample Planned Amenities: The feeling of home extends beyond its four walls; residents can enjoy many planned amenities including outdoor workout stations, the covered pavilion and gazebos, a swimming pool with cabanas, playgrounds, a dog park and scenic trails.
- Top Notch Education: Located in the desirable and top-rated Wake County school district, Brickyard is great community in which to raise a family.
- Nearby Entertainment: Whether it's a place to spend time with the family, a special date night spot, or a go-to hair salon, there’s no shortage of things to do. Check out what’s around the neighborhood here.
“We wanted to build a community that would preserve this rich history of Cary’s bricklayer past, while offering the latest in energy-efficiency and innovative design, all at an affordable price,” said Trish Hanchette, Raleigh Division president at Meritage Homes. “As you drive by Brickyard, you can see the entrance monument of workers building, brick-by-brick. That’s how this state flourished, and we wanted to honor this community by incorporating these artistic elements throughout the development. We’re excited to give homeowners an opportunity to live in this unique community.”
The public is invited to the grand opening event on May 4 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees will be able to tour the single-family and town home model homes and explore the amenities while learning about the community’s energy-efficient features while enjoying food trucks and have the chance to win a raffle from Whole Foods.
