Becky Holt Brown, Broker/Realtor, shares what she loves about the four bedroom, 4 bathroom, 4,689 square foot, brick home at 109 Legacy Oaks Drive in Wallace, North Carolina.
What is unique about this property?
This is a custom-built home situated on two lots and overlooks the 9th hole of "the Landings Golf Course." The front vista of the home is truly beautiful, with the four-column portico, the rich dark wood of the double front doors, and the wide, columned, rocking chair front porch.
Which room do you love the most and what is special about it?
I love the family room, it is spacious yet comfortable. The fireplace and beautiful wood floors make the room inviting and warm, while the towering ceiling and beams raise the profile of the entire space.
What most surprised you when you first saw this home?
I love the mature, natural style landscaping AND the pool is great with the Synlawn system.

Suddenly it hits you: To get your dream home, you are going to have to build it.
Buying land and working with a home builder to construct the home that matches all of your personal specifications is an exciting endeavor. It is also a longer process than buying a ready-built home, and one that requires a vastly different timeline and resources.
"The old adage of “location, location, location” absolutely applies when choosing the right homesite for your new dream home," advises Rick Binford, Broker/Realtor with KBT Realty Group. "You cannot change the neighbors, you cannot move the woods, or the pond, and except for doing some landscaping, you cannot change your views – make sure all of those things are considered as you look at your options."
Finding the Right Piece of Property
Before you beginning looking at homesites, think about how you will use your home.
"I suggest that people have a clear idea of how they want to live in their new ho ...
