For this young couple, their new home at Riverwalk is exactly what they wanted!
Millennials Blake and Holly knew what they were looking for when they relocated from Chicago. After renting for a year in Ballentine, they took their list of “wants” and started house hunting. The couple wanted a neighborhood that was close to everything, and had plenty of outdoor activities. So they were instantly drawn to Riverwalk because of its proximity to the Catawba River, as well as its town center, restaurants and shops.
According to Blake, they didn’t look at other builders in the area, because Evans Coghill Homes had the floor plan that worked best for them, the Heron. “We found Evans Coghill on Zillow, and we liked that they had smaller homes that the other builders didn’t,” remembers Blake. “I own motorcycles so I wanted a 3-car garage, but not a huge house. And the location is perfect. I’m used to running by the water, so I like living near the river.”
What’s their favorite part of their new home? “We didn’t need a ton of room, so this model was ideal,” says Blake. “The home itself is really nice, and the neighborhood is growing nicely. We thought it was mostly downsizers, but it’s actually pretty diverse. There are a lot of younger people around.”
But, like most Riverwalk residents, what really made the difference for Blake and Holly was the walkability! “In many neighborhoods around here, you have to drive everywhere. But not at Riverwalk. I love being outdoors, so being able to walk everywhere made a huge difference to me.” They are looking forward to the new Lidl Grocery Store that is currently under construction in the Town Center.
Blake and Holly found their overall experience to be positive. “We would recommend Evans Coghill Homes to our friends & family!”
