APEX, N.C., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Orleans Homes Raleigh Division is pleased to announce development plans for Colvin Park, a 144-lot community just west of Cary in Apex, NC. Sales are slated to begin in Autumn of 2013 and the land purchase and building approvals have already been secured.

Colvin Park is located within the highly desirable Apex School District and will feature single family homes from the mid $200s, as well as a fishing lake, planned Junior Olympic-sized swimming pool and clubhouse.

Part of a much larger Raleigh expansion strategy, Colvin Park is the first of several new land acquisitions planned by Orleans in key Cary, Apex and Holly Springs markets.

Raleigh division president Mitch Sanner shares, "As the market shows continued signs of improvement, we couldn't be more excited for the opportunities that lie before us here at Orleans, especially within the Raleigh market."

"We've carefully chosen locations that will enable us to provide great homes, in great school districts and with easy access to downtown, Research Triangle Park and Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Colvin Park is really just the first step," Sanner adds.

Besides Colvin Park, Orleans Homes has three additional neighborhoods under contract in the Raleigh area that all exemplify Orleans' mission to revolutionize the home buying experience by delivering high quality homes, simpler processes and refreshingly friendly customer service.
