The Dominion Model Home

Well, I am a day late in posting, as I said before, we'd be giving a weekly update on progress at The Dominion! We held 3 Private Preview Open House tours yesterday, along with info and a peek at the new development, so we were tied up most of the day! We had a great turn out and guests got to see some beautiful homes that are currently available in the Searcy Country Club area and gave out detailed listing information on the new home at 904 Kelburn Court, the model for The Dominion.
This beautiful home by Stevens Commercial Contractors is well under construction and if you can imagine a community AND home designed just for you, then take a look at this new listing!

This home with a Country French design, impressive detailing, and superb craftsmanship will feature a Kitchen that is a dream for anyone who loves to cook and entertain, with granite countertops, island with breakfast bar and GE Profile appliances. The Living Room's focal point will be a wonderful and inviting stone fireplace and will be a warm and inviting space for friends and family to gather.

The tiled shower and solid surface countertops in the Master Bath, along with a walk-in closet and whirlpool tub to relax in, will be an oasis at the end of the day! A Study, located off of the Master Suite and covered back patio are great additions to this home, as well as central vac, security system, landscaping, sprinkler system and more.

The amenities included in the $140 per month POA fees are a bargain, as they take care of all of the front yard maintenance, the monitoring and the security of The Dominion and the grounds, along with Canberra Park, which I know you will enjoy immensely! There are 3BR/2.5 BA and 2596 square feet, with a list price of $382,500. For more detailed information, please give us a call!

"The Dominion Chronicles"

As you can see, in the last week there has been quite a bit of excavating going on at The Dominion. The berms are in the process of being built up and we are quite excited about Canberra Park as we mentioned in the last post! So you may ask, what is a berm?

For centuries, berms have been used for privacy, to protect certain areas, to fortify or insulate structures, and to add spice to one's landscape. These are raised earthen areas; more recently, their popularity in gardening areas is on the rise. Surrounded with heavy timbers, stone retaining walls, or free-standing, they are an attractive means by which you can create the illusion of more topography, a more three-dimensional site, in level areas.
Gently sloped berms are great for erosion control and can be also be useful for adding eco-friendly privacy.

As of today, eleven lots, out of the 74 have already sold...this community across from the Searcy Country Club will be a popular one, offering something noone else has in the Searcy area has done.

This is the first of two homes being constructed at The Dominion...this model home is by J Stevens Builders. We'll have lots to talk about when it comes to a Stevens built we've mentioned before, there are only three approved builders for this development and they are all top notch when it comes to design and quality. This model home is currently in the framing stage and we can't wait to share more with you in the upcoming weeks!

Here is the layout for the second spec home, by Gerald Lynch, already under construction at The Dominion...we'll be posting detailed information, pricing, etc. in the next couple of posts on both of these properties...stay tuned!

"The Dominion Chronicles"

My Co-Listing partner Terri and I, have totally fallen in love with the new master-planned community, The Dominion, which is being developed across from the Searcy Country Club. A green community by Dalrymple Development, who is proactive in the efforts to protect our natural resources and is the first in Searcy to actively support the green initiative.

Several aspects of The Dominion which will reinforce those green standards are effective land use, infrastructure, utilizing clean fuel sources, including natural gas lighting throughout the area, green spaces from landscaping on each parcel to the vast network of green belts, our favorite, along with Canberra Park and other elements.

If you can imagine a community designed just for you, then welcome to The Gardens at the Dominion. That is the tagline for the development and we couldn't have described it any better. The inspiration was inspired by nostalgic Old World Europe and it blends exceptional quality, exclusive proximity into Searcy, elegant designs into a secure and gated community.

This first phase of The Dominion covers 23 acres, with only 74 garden lots available for purchase. Some of our favorite features also include the decorative wrought iron stone fencing with 24 hour controlled and monitored access, the gatehouse, which will be available for residents usage, over a mile of natural paths for recreation and convenience, private cart houses and paths leading you to the fairways of the Searcy Country Club and the private website that will be available for residents informing them of upcoming events and information.

The highest standards, building designs and covenants will ensure you the exceptional quality and workmanship you will expect. There are three contractors that were chosen to exclusively build at The Dominion and they are Jackie Stevens with JStevens Builders, Gerald Lynch with Lynch Construction and Gary Overstreet of Overstreet Builders, Inc. These contractors have years of experience, excellent referrals and portfolios that are top notch when it comes to working with their clients. We look forward to assisting them, as construction has already started on two available homes, one at 2300 sq. ft. and the other at almost 2700 sq. ft.! Custom homes will range from smaller, Italian-Style Villas to spacious French Stately Homes that will harmoniously blend into the garden community.

Terri and I thought it would be great to share with you the development as it progresses along. We look forward each week to seeing The Dominion as it comes to life...we have plats and information to provide you with, or just call one of us if you'd like to know more...until next week...
