Award-Winning Atlanta Builder Makes Itself Right at Home in Gwinnett County with Second New Home Community and New Neighborhood Sales Manager – Eric Becraft
Atlanta, February 18 – For the past two decades, Gwinnett County has made its mark on the map of Georgia as one of the fastest growing counties in America. Atlanta new home builder, Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods, launched in 2010 with a handful of communities – largely placed in and around Cobb County where the company is headquartered. Thanks to increasing demand and the rapidly growing popularity of the Acadia brand, by 2013 the new home builder laid claim to over a dozen neighborhoods throughout Metro Atlanta – which included the trek east with Acadia’s first foray into Gwinnett and the premiere of River District. Located in the City of Berkeley Lake, River District is a stunning gated community on the banks of the Chattahoochee River featuring luxury homes priced from the high $500,000’s. At the start of 2014 – included among a list of 20 current and coming soon Atlanta new home communities – Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods demonstrates even more exciting growth as it raises the curtain on its second Gwinnett County venture with Del Mar Club in Dacula.
“We always knew we were going to build in Gwinnett County,” explained Gregg Goldenberg, President and CEO for Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods. “All of the reasons that make it one of the fastest growing counties in America – excellent schools, a nationally recognized parks & recreation department, great venues for shopping and dining, charming town squares and well-managed local governments, access to major interstates and highways, and scenic landscapes – are among many of the things we look for when planning a new Acadia community. This newest community – Del Mar Club – is the perfect platform for us to debut some magnificent new elevations from our popular Capitol Collection. Homes in Del Mar Club will showcase intelligently planned layouts, lovely exteriors and affordable price points from the $200,000’s. The community is situated in the family-friendly City of Dacula – which has experienced tremendous growth in recent years.”
Style meets substance in Acadia’s newest up-and-coming development. Sweeping panoramas at every turn, loads of greenspace, and close proximity to I-85 and Highway 316 are just a few of the enticements that led Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods to break ground here. Del Mar Club is a swim-tennis community that is comprised of 70 homesites and resort-quality amenities. Future Del Mar Club homeowners can enjoy easy access to shopping and dining at both Sugarloaf Mills and Mall of Georgia, as well as sporting events and concerts at Gwinnett Arena and Coolray Field – Home of the Gwinnett Braves. Students living in Del Mar Club will attend highly-revered Gwinnett County Schools: Harbins Elementary, McConnell Middle, and Archer High Schools. At the helm as Neighborhood Sales Manager, seasoned real estate veteran Eric Becraft looks forward to introducing prospective home buyers to Del Mar Club.
“All of the family-oriented floorplans in Del Mar Club feature either 4 bedroom/3 bathroom or 5 bedroom/4 bathroom layouts,” said Becraft. “Each home offers a media room, a number of flexible living spaces and terrific integrated features. The location is terrific, too. Within a matter of minutes, you can be shopping at the Mall of Georgia or The Shoppes at Webb Gin in Snellville, at the park tossing the ball, catching a Gwinnett Braves game, or attending church services on Sunday morning. I’m a particularly big fan of the price point, and know that home buyers will be fans of that specific feature, as well. You get an awful lot of quality, square footage, and features for that price point.”
Before joining the Acadia Homes & Neighborhoods’ team in December 2013, Becraft was a frequent top producer in real estate sales in his home state of New York. After moving here with his family in 2006, he represented former Atlanta builder, Winmark Homes and national home builder, John Wieland Homes. However, Becraft does not credit his success in real estate sales to experience alone. Instead, he makes a point to acknowledge his wife and two children.
“I am so in love with my family,” explained Becraft. “That love helps me connect with other parents who love their families, too. It’s what makes Del Mar Club such a great fit for my talents. We’re both family-focused.”
Del Mar Club is currently pre-selling. Home buyers in Del Mar Club will be among the first to have their homes inspired by Acadia’s new state-of-the-art Design Gallery. Featuring 4500 square feet of showroom floor, the Gallery is representative of an interactive audio-visual one stop shopping experience where Acadia home buyers can explore different combinations and pick out everything from light fixtures and cabinetry to flooring and paint colors. To schedule a tour of the community to view available homesites with Eric Becraft, prospective homebuyers are encouraged to call (404) 304-0635 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. To get to the community from Atlanta, interested parties can take I-85 North to Hwy 316 East (University Parkway). Follow Hwy 316 East to Harbins Road and turn right. Del Mar Club will be on the left.
