Any opinions, one way or another, on Bella Casa Estates vs. Bella Casa Manors, assuming the price of the home is the same? (their ranges overlap). Anything to know in particular about living in either community?

Honestly, there is no real way for you to get a clear picture until you visit in person. I was over that way the other day, and I would vote for the Manors. There are so many nice subdivisions that would likely suit your needs though! I live in Cary fwiw.

Thanks MB. Yea, looking forward to a visiting soon. In the meantime, I must have used Google satellite maps and street view to tour Bella Casa online, at least 5 times over. Time for a real visit.

I liked it better online than when I actually visited it. I've been in a few of the homes in the Estates section. I dunno. Not impressed with the location, but the houses were decent. Some better than others. This is always true of custom. All builders are different.

I think you are sold on a suburban ideal. Come here. Visit.

For all you know, you might fall in love with Holly Springs.

"Manors" and "Estates" does not fit Apex in my opinion nor does the price tag. I like the names "Farms","Villages" and "Parks" which better reflects the town.

I see. Makes sense. I expect the vast majority of newcomers who are attracted to Apex for the very reason you're describing - the off-the-beaten path quaint small town feel that Apex is. I don't care for the names "Manors" or "Estates" myself; we're interested in those particular communities for the lot space and home amenities that they offer for a growing family, coupled with the schools they are assigned to. The community name is the issue of the developer. I would've been just as pleased with a community named "farm", "ranch", "village", etc.

I'm curious, what are the average lot sizes? The forum frequently gets asked about where to find lots larger that a quarter acre, or larger than 1/3 acre, etc.

Bella Casa Manors (custom build community in Apex) has the largest lot sizes I've seen so far for a subdivision in Apex. There may be others in Apex, but I don't know where those are. Manors lot sizes are 1/3 and up.

Our friends built a home in the manors. Their lot is over half an acre. It is a beautiful home.
