Anyone live in Highcroft Village? My husband and I are considering buying a home there and we would like to know if HV residents love it there? Also, do your utility bills reflect an energy efficient home? What is the closest day care to there? Anyone in the neighborhood babysit children? Your input would be greatly appreciated!

We moved into HV in July and absolutley love it. The neighbors are great and there are kids everywhere. We dont have a kid yet so I cant help you with the daycare question but there are tons around the area and one down the road on 55 I think.

My utility bills are very reasonable but my home isnt considered "energy star". I assume it has the same pieces as an ES home but didnt get the inspections needed for the cert.

So in short....we love it.

My husband and I moved to Highcroft -- the older neighborhood -- and love it, too. Very family-oriented and friendly.

Our home is one of these with the open floor plans -- lots of wasted space with the vaulted ceilings -- and I didn't notice any difference in our heating/cooling bills than, say, the more traditional floor plan.

There are some nice homes in the Village. We walked through several during the Parade of Homes back in October. My favorite, of course, is the model.

Is the new phase of Highcroft Village going to be across Green Hope School Road? As I recall, that is what the on site agent said when we where there during the Parade of Homes??

Highcroft Investors owns 70 acres+/- across the road.

If you buy a home I would make sure it is Energy Star certified so you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it was inspected and tested by an independent third party and because of this the home will receive a rate discount from both Progress and PSNC. At resale the home should be more marketable too.
