Two New Greater Wilmington Communities from H&H Homes

by Meghan Riley, The Cameron Team

H&H Homes is a reputable North Carolina builder that has over 20 years of experience in home building. They’ve developed numerous communities around the Fayetteville, Raleigh, Jacksonville, Pinehurst, and Greensboro areas, and, recently, they’ve started building in two new communities, both of which are located in the greater Wilmington area.

H&H Homes Eco Home Certification ProgramAcross from Belvedere Heights in Leland, NC, is The Willows at Leland. Their floor plans include ranch and two-story homes starting at $165,900* and ranging from 1412 to 1868 square-feet. Each home includes 3 bedrooms, 2-2.5 baths, a 2 car garage, concrete driveway, and landscaping package. Depending on the floorplan, interior features may include recessed lighting, hardwood floors, carpet, laminate countertops, birch cabinets, a garden tub, cultured marble bathroom counter tops, and an appliance package, to name a few. In addition to some wonderfully affordable house plans, Willows at Leland has a club house, community swimming pool, and tennis courts!

At the end of Murrayville Road, behind Courtney Pines in Wilmington, is the new community of Shield’s Place. H&H Homes is currently in the process of developing the land, which will feature two large ponds.

Floor plans for Shield’s Place are mainly two-story homes, though there is a single ranch option. The two-story homes range from 2000 to 2434 square-feet and include 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and 2 car garages. Floor plans include an open design, large family rooms, office spaces, lofts, fireplaces, bonus rooms, and options for first floor or second floor master suites. Details include brushed nickel hardware, coffered or trey ceilings, granite countertops, a garden tub, separate shower, pendant and recessed lighting, low maintenance vinyl siding, vinyl windows, and more! Homes start in the low $200 thousands*.

Every home built by H&H Homes is built to be an energy efficient "green" home and is certified by ECO Home. The average ECO Home scores a 73 (the higher the number, the less energy efficient the home is) on a 150 scale. H&H Homes score in the 60 range. As an added benefit, they provide all new buyers with energy estimate so they know what they’ll be paying each year for their energy bills.

Finally, H&H Homes provides a 2-10 home warranty with each home. This warranty covers everything from the roof to the flooring to appliances. So, you can have peace of mind that your home will be taken care of if anything breaks.

We have a full list of features for all of the floor plans for both communities. If you’re interested in seeing the floor plans, let us know. We’d be happy to send them to you!
