Bromley Estates at Weddington

Bromley Model by Toll Brothers

Bromley Model by Toll Brothers

Bromley started around 2007 as a high end custom home development with large lots and sprawling estates on 160 acres. Custom homes have sold at prices up to $1.8 million. When the market downturn hit, some of these newly constructed mansions were sitting vacant (some for years) with no buyers. In 2012, 103 Bromley lots were purchased by Toll Brothers as one of their premier communities in Union County. Toll Brothers is well regarded in the luxury home market and was honored as 2012 Builder of the Year by Professional Builder magazine.

Toll Brothers is currently selling their acre+ home sites starting from the mid $500′s with most new homes projected to come in the $700,000′s. There are currently six home designs (3100-5100 sq ft) to choose from ranging from the ranch style Audubon to the expansive Henley with its dramatic dual staircase.

Bromley is located on Hemby Road just past the Mecklenburg line in Union county. This neighborhood has a picturesque setting with mature trees, lake, 10acre park, gazebo, and plans for a rustic bridge. Low taxes and the highly awarded Weddington school district are other attractions for buyers in Bromley.

It would be my pleasure to help you through the new construction process as your buyers agent. I offer this service at no cost to you and can help guide you in smart decorator selections, where and how much to upgrade, and provide you guidance on your investment to keep it in line with the market should you need to relocate. Please contact me at nancy.wilkins@allentate.com for an in depth look at Bromley or similar neighborhoods in the Weddington area.

Built by Orleans starting around 2006, the homes here range from full brick traditional to craftsman style with options including mud rooms, basements, and beautiful porches.

I offer my services as your buyer’s agent at no cost to you when purchasing new construction homes. Remember that the sales agent works for the builder and may not have your best interests in mind!  I would love to help you navigate through this stressful time from picking out your lot and interior decor choices to keeping a close eye on the construction process.  As another bonus, I can introduce you and your family members to your potential neighbors! My background as both a Lake Forest resident and a Union County real estate professional can benefit you by helping you make smart choices like how much to spend at the design center, where you can save your money by waiting until after closing to make certain upgrades, and what to ask the builder for now that would cost you more in the long run.  Please contact me at (704) 577-0023  to learn more about living in Lake Forest Preserve.   It would be my pleasure to show you any new or existing home for sale in Lake Forest Preserve!
