For New Home Buyers A Faster, Easier Way to Build the Luxury Home of Your Dreams

Why Build Your Dream Home with Walnut Cove Realty?

Building a luxury home in the mountains is never easy, and the limited space in North Carolina’s highly desirable luxury markets can make building even more difficult. That’s why we developed an innovative solution to this problem designed specifically for luxury builders: The WCR Luxury Spec Home Program.

What Is the WCR Luxury Spec Home Program?

The WCR Luxury Spec Home Program combines the speed and convenience of buying a home with the freedom of customization afforded by building. It’s essentially the best of both worlds, without the worst of either.

We partner with trusted builders and residents of select communities within The Cliffs at Walnut Cove and The Ramble to fund the design and construction of new luxury homes with popular features and much shorter build times. Luxury home buyers looking to build don’t have to spend months closing on a lot, planning from scratch with designers, and waiting even longer for the build.

Instead, our trusted builders draw on popular consumer patterns to develop a plan and bring it to life through an innovative neighbor-led investment program. You purchase the home like a traditional home sale and can optimize your investment in personalizing the features of the home and bringing all of their vision to life.

From furniture to the lighting plan to the permitting—we have those details figured out so you get what they want sooner: a personalized luxury home with all the modern amenities you need and want.

“Through the WCR Luxury Spec Home Program, you can feel like you’ve fully designed your home without the enormous time commitment. It feels like buying a home as if it was for sale.”

—  Josh Smith, President, Walnut Cove Realty

Move into your dream home in a fraction of the time.

In today’s market, it’s common for new luxury home builds to take two years or more from start to finish. We know most people looking to move into their dream home don’t want the wait—nor the headaches of managing a complex new construction.

Through our WCR Luxury Spec Home Program, we often deliver that dream home between six and 12 months, depending on which stage of the build you enter the process.

“Walnut Cove Realty helped us with so many aspects of the building process and acclimating here. Our realtor took us to see the properties. There were only four in our price range, so we decided to build a house for the first time. He pointed us in all the right directions and helped along the way with the title company, finding insurance, and all the little details. We were texting and on the phone with him all the time, asking questions, and we never felt like we were bothering him.”

—  The Lewises, Property Buyers

Bring Your Vision to Life in Three Steps.

Here’s how the WCR Luxury Spec Home Program works, at a glance.

1. Explore our current spec home builds and step into the project.

Once you find the perfect home plan currently being developed, you'll formally enter the project and alleviate the current owners of their position. You’ll step in just as you would if you'd bought the lot and built a custom home from scratch.

2. Make your selections and customize the space.

Work with our design partners to bring your vision to life inside and outside the home. We can help you plan and execute even the finest details to make your home absolutely perfect.

3. Walkthrough, move in, and fine-tune as you get on with living your best life.

Once the build is complete, we’ll host a detailed walkthrough supported by a two-year general warranty and ten-year structural warranty so you've got peace of mind that your home is of the highest quality. As you settle in, we'll return every six months over the next two years to conduct additional walkthroughs and address any details that need to be adjusted based on how you live in the space.
