Raleigh, NC – RDU Residential LLC  is thrilled to announce the newest contemporary duet-style ITB collection coming to the cusp of Lake Johnson and near ITB SW Raleigh. With 26 residences available and various plans from the High – $500ks, Wrenwood boasts flexible and functional living in one of Oak City’s fastest-growing locales. Sales efforts are underway. Construction has already begun, with the first offerings set for completion in Summer 2023. 

The cutting-edge duet-style collection, located at 851 Athens Drive, is named for its nature-forward locale & turnkey, duet-style architecture. The innovative collection offers future buyers a holistic lifestyle, balancing ample green space with easy metropolitan access in either direction.

Wrenwood – whose name was derived from the NC native Carolina Wren songbird famous for its duet-singing style – delivers a harmonious balance between cutting-edge capital city-living, with the easy-going appeal of Oak City’s signature, nature-forward aesthetic.

 

“As relocation rises and area in the Triangle continue to expand and grow, such as RTP, Downtown South, Cary and more – homebuyers are looking for different solutions in housing, much like Wrenwood.”

“The Wrenwood collection is already underway, and the progress we’re seeing at 851 Athens Drive is incredibly promising,” states Shawn Donovan, Developing Partner and Owner of Concept 8. “Very rarely do buyers get the kind of access offered by these new Lake Johnson homes. Then, when you combine expert construction with Wrenwood’s cutting-edge design? You’re left with a turnkey development any future homeowner will love.”

THE COLLECTION

Architecturally, these farmhouse-inspired duets complement the current community, while still embracing a signature clean & light aesthetic typical of a modern new build. Here, four functional floor plans boast 3 BR, 2.5 BA and vary in SQ FTs ranging from 2,334 – 2,375 SQ FT.  The variety of floor plans allows future homebuyers some flexibility, as buyers can select between two or three-level layouts depending on preference between a walk-up attic or a finished basement. 

Every residence features an airy, light-flooded interior; fueled by ample windows, classic farmhouse-style color palettes and elevated fixtures throughout. From detached one-car garages (in select residences)  to spacious alfresco escapes, these contemporary, duet-style condos offer every benefit of a turnkey new construction home, without compromising on open-concept SQ FT, overall aesthetic or an accessible Oak City locale.

“As relocation rises and area in the Triangle continue to expand and grow, such as RTP, Downtown South, Cary and more – homebuyers are looking for different solutions in housing, much like Wrenwood,” states  Johnny Chappell, member of the Wrenwood Development Team and Owner/Broker of Chappell [Powered by Compass]. 

“Our collection delivers on style and square footage while expanding Missing Middle housing inventory in Triangle locations where it is needed the most. This kind of duet-style build is still pretty new to the Raleigh community, but we believe it’s a natural fit for the area as we continue to grow. Couple that with the connectivity of being Inside The Beltline and down the street from Lake Johnson, buyers should be Wrenwood ready.”
