A Raleigh developer has announced a master-planned, 550-acre residential development near the Wake-Harnett county border. Greenfield Communities unveiled Serenity stationed northwest of Hwy 401 and Rawls Church Rd., with an initial 1,200 homes expected to begin in mid-2021.  

The economic impact is expected to surpass $300 million for land development and home construction. As the largest master-planned community in both Northern Harnett County and Fuquay-Varina to date, Serenity’s master plan will include traditional single-family detached and age-restricted, over-55 residences ranging from the mid-$200s to $500s. Phase One home sales are slated to begin in the summer of 2021.

“Serenity is a special place unlike any other,” says Matt Brubaker, president of Greenfield Communities. “The concept honors the history of the land and embraces the culture and beauty of Harnett County. Even though Serenity is only a short drive to all the retail found in Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, and Angier.”

Special care was taken to design Serenity’s community land plan to accommodate an array of homebuyers, including first-time, move-up, custom, and age-qualified.  The amenity package will include ball fields, a 3,700 SF clubhouse, a Junior Olympic outdoor swimming pool, a hammock park, outdoor yoga platforms, a dog park, a children’s playground, numerous pocket parks, and miles of nature trails – some of which wind along Hector Creek.
