It seems like this subdivision is conveniently located. Do you consider this neighborhood to be coockie-cutter? Are the houses spread out or on top of eachother? I understand KB and Anderson built these homes? Any opinions on the quality of these homes? Does anyone know what the HOA is annually? I did look at some of the pictures on CD, but I'd like to hear from the locals.

I beleive we have a person on this forum who lives there. I'm sure she can answer your questions. FWIW, I would look into the offerings from Anderson first. I understand they are known for energy efficient type homes.

I'm sure ferrickhead will be around soon to talk specifics!

It's Ferrickhead. I am sure she will chime in soon. You can also do a search because she has posted a lot in the past about Cobblestone.

Yeah, I'm here! Sorry, was without a computer for a couple of days.

I live in the Anderson homes, and I LOVE it. I was attracted to the homes because of the floorplans. We did look at KB homes first and to me, that was a bit too cookie-cutter. If you really look at the houses, there are really only 3-4 different styles. There are a couple of houses in the neighborhood that the house across the street and one over is identical. Theres really no character to it and the houses all look the same. I had a couple of friends who bought from KB and they backed out before the house was built. Plus, the houses are pretty close together.

We liked Anderson more because it had a bit more personality. Some of the houses do have woods in the backyard, some have a few (like mine). They are not all on top of each other either which is another thing I liked.

Also, when you buy from KB, you are pretty much buying a "box". Everything you put into that box costs extra. My friends backed out because at the last minute, the builder could not do what they had paid for. (that was over a year ago, hopefully its changed since then). With Anderson, things that would be considered an "extra" is actually standard. (Hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, etc). Also, the energy efficient homes actually DO save you money. My house now is 2500 sq feet. My last house in Raleigh was 1200. Believe it or not, my electric bill in my house now is less than my house in Raleigh, lol.

HOA's are $300 a year, that includes access to the pool and tennis court. They are also going to build a nice walking trail soon and I heard some shops were supposed to go up. I can only speak for Anderson but the neighborhood is soooooo quiet and very safe. Everyone is super friendly. The one thing that sealed the deal for me was Halloween. Everyone decorated their house and we had hundreds of kids! It was like an old fashioned Halloween that I used to have when I was alot younger.
It was great! Very family oriented, people from all over and everyone is super nice.

LMK if you have any questions!
