Aug. 21, 2013. It has always been difficult to find truly affordable housing in the High Country. You did have some options, you could fix up an older home, modular homes have helped some, but they were always pretty basic without the bells and whistles that most home buyers would love to have. Well that has changed, thanks to a new High Country developer, Deeds 8:18, LLC.
The High Country’s newest development is called Olde Fields on Big Flatts Church Road in Fleetwood with brand new, site built, homes now under construction and more on the way. There are 7 different styles with open floor plans to choose from. These are new lot and home packages starting at only $185,000 and going up to $219,000, and all offer amenities including granite counter tops, hardwood and tile floors, oversized wood trim, solid interior doors, stainless steel appliances, hardboard siding – many have a 2-car garage!
David Risk and Risk Construction, LLC is the builder and David has built hundreds of homes across the High Country since beginning work with his father back in the late ’50s. David is on site daily to make sure that every Olde Fields home is the best it can be. David joined the Olde Fields team because as he puts it “It’s the right thing to do. There just isn’t any truly affordable housing in our area that has the upgrades and perks that the Olde Fields homes have.” David added, “You never see granite counter tops, hardwood floors, high end trim, solid interior doors and landscaping with homes in this price range. Olde Fields is truly a dream come true for High Country home buyers!”
The developer, DEeds 8:18, LLC., is an LLC that was created to adhere to the teachings of Deuteronomy 8:18, which basically states that the ability to accumulate wealth is a gift from GOD. All wealth is his and should be used to carry out His Great Commission. All profits earned by any venture created by DEeds 8:18 will be strictly used for that purpose. This is but one part of our journey from ‘Success to Significance’.
“The goal of DEeds 8:18 is to ‘Turn Scars into Stars’ in the High Country of North Carolina.” Partner Ray Gouge said. “We’re building homes that owners will truly be proud to call home, in a development that will add to the beauty of the area it’s a part of.”
Turn-around time on an Olde Fields home is extraordinarily fast. From the time a contract is signed until the day it’s ready for move in is approximately 3 months and financing with several area lenders is available with extremely low down payments.
Olde Fields is an easy and quick drive from anywhere in the High Country. Just 20 minutes from Boone, From Boone take HWY 421 south to HWY 221, at light turn LEFT, go approx 5 miles turn LEFT onto RAILROAD GRADE & right onto BIG FLATTS CHURCH RD. From West Jefferson go south on HWY 221 for 6 miles to Railroad Grade, go 1 mile to next RIGHT onto BIG FLATTS CHURCH RD., go approx 1 mile and the new subdivision is on RIGHT.
