“A Town Of Its Own” Heritage Has It All


In 2000, Andy Ammonds and his residential development group broke ground on what has become one of the most sought after residential communities in the Triangle area. Today, the Heritage Wake Forest community is much more than anyone, including Ammonds, could have imagined 20 or so years ago.

While initial development plans called for 900 homes on just 1,008 acres, the community now sits on roughly 2,000 acres and boasts more than a dozen smaller communities within it, an award-winning golf course, greenway trails–and the list goes on. Residents, locals, even those looking to relocate to the area recognize Heritage’s commitment to high-quality, custom built homes and an outstanding quality of life.

In its youth, Heritage Wake Forest experienced record-breaking sales averaging 165 (lot) sales from 2000 to 2015. The project has even gained national attention for its ability to maintain home values and sales pace through one of the worse housing market crashes on record.

When families are considering relocating to the Triangle, Heritage Wake Forest almost always makes the list of neighborhoods to see–learn why!
