My husband and I are looking for a specific type of house to build - a plantation style house - preferably in the western area of Wake County. I am aware of a few communities with homes like this (Kitts Creek, Heritage Wake Forest, Austin Creek). I really don't think we can afford a custom builder to build on our own lot. We have become extremely overwhelmed with all the builders and subdivisions that it seems like we'll never be able to investigate them all. Attached is a picture of the type of house we want to build.

If anyone has any information regarding a NEW neighborhood with homes like these under 400K, please let me know. Thanks in advance! Y'all are a wealth of information!

I think there may be a few places, but one that comes to mind right out of the box is perhaps Bedford

Not sure if the price or location is exactly right, but it might be worth a look. If anything, you might just be able to get a few ideas to borrow for wherever you choose to build. They have a whole Charleston style section. Here is what one house in that section of bedford looks like:

I found this one, but I know there are grouping of them in Sunset Ridge in Holly Springs...on the north side. I would call them plantation style. They typically have smaller lots and rear entry garages...although this one has a decent lot:

Yes, Bedford I would definitely check out. They are called "charleston style" homes and WHEW BOY are they gorgoues inside and out!!! Try also:

Sunset Oaks (part of Sunset Ridge) in Holly Springs: Sunset Oaks
Lakestone Village in Fuquay-Varina: Lakestone Village
Lion's Gate in Clayton: Riverwood Life, A Perfect Fit (broken link) (sorry, this is in Johnston County but may worth a look, anyway)

Good luck!

Under 400K for this style of house in Western Wake might be difficult to find. Especially if you want any substantive amount of land. However, you might want to try:

Scotts Mill in Apex
Carpenter Village in Cary/Morrisville
Cameron Park

Thanks for the input so far. I visited Sunset Oaks yesterday and they might be able to custom build for us.

Are there any other custom builders in Western Wake subdivisions for 400K or under?

check out renaissance park-the same developers of bedford-this community has an even more southern/georgian style.
Im SURE these homes will sky rocket because of the proximity to downtown and the future looking like alot more is coming just south of downtown.
It does have fairly small lots---Im still in miami and they are a little out of my price but i would definitley buy one of these if i could.

My house in Carpenter Village looks nearly identical to the picture you posted. We paid under $400K for around 2800 sq ft 2 years ago. There are several homes on the market in our neighborhood that are 1-3 years old. There are even a very small number of homes still being built.

There are new Western Cary neighborhoods with homes this style, but the prices are now much higher and the lots smaller.
