Holding Village is one of the newest communities in Wake Forest, NC. The first phase has begun and will features three popular builders in Drees Homes, John Wieland Homes, and Ashton Woods.
The developers for this community are Wheelock Communities and Reader & Partners. The site of Holding Village sits on 254 acres once owned by the Holding Family, who were very well known in Wake Forest and played a major part in the development of the Town of Wake Forest in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The highlight of the property is a 13-acre spring-fed lake.
Traditional Neighborhood Design

The developers have chosen this increasingly popular style because is designed to create a close-knit neighborhood. Most of the homes feature prominent front porches and are set close to the community’s tree-lined streets. Sidewalks connect the neighborhood to the many pocket parks, lake and pool. Many of the homes also feature rear garages that are accessed via alleys behind the homes. Future plans include walking trails connecting Smith Creek Soccer Center, Heritage Golf Course, and Heritage Elementary Schools.

When complete, Holding Village will include many amenities including four pocket parks, a multipurpose ball field, a pool pavilion with playground and many open spaces.
