Mayberry-Style Community Provides Relaxed Living with Adventure Around Every Corner

The Walk at East Village, a new construction 55+ age-qualified active living community in Clayton, is celebrating its grand opening with a public eventSaturday, April 22, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Prospective homebuyers and the entire community are invited to the family-friendly event to enjoy live music, free food and drinks including a neighborhood pig pickin’, model home and site tours, raffles, helicopter rides for homebuyers and more.

The Walk at East Village, located at 75 Bladen Pl. in Clayton, offers custom-grade homes with a touch of Southern charm. It also offers a unique pocket neighborhood concept designed to help its residents connect. It is the only dedicated 55+ age-qualified community of its kind in the Southeast. The pocket design creates a neighborhood within a neighborhood, with clusters of eight to 12 single-family homes facing each other around a shared common space such as a garden courtyard or walking path. With large porches out front and cars tucked in garages in the back, residents enjoy a greater sense of social environment, connection and security.

The Walk at East Village is also designed for activity. From the walking paths, a putting green and a heated saltwater pool with lap lane, to the 12,000-square-foot club house with a high-end fitness center, pickle ball and bocce courts, and a community garden, there are plenty of activities for everyone. The community’s activities director will also be developing programming around niche interests, such as arts and crafts events, cooking classes, happy hours and more.

“Whether you’re looking for someone to play golf with or the simple ability to chat with neighbors from your front porch, The Walk at East Village is designed for you to live at your own pace,” said Joe Smith, CEO of TIMU Group, LLC, who is developing the community in partnership with TH Clayton Development Company, LLC. “Our development team is based locally so we’re proud to be making such a meaningful impact on our own communities. Our leadership team is onsite daily to ensure the highest quality construction. We can’t wait to share what we’ve been working on with everyone at the grand opening event!”

The Walk at East Village is not only bringing a new kind of active living neighborhood to the area – it is also revolutionizing the home buying process with an online system developed specifically for the community. The price listed online is the final selling price, not a starting point. This approach to home buying makes the purchasing process easier and more transparent, eliminates bait-and-switch pricing and still gives the homebuyer a large range of style options to choose from, working through the unique online platform and showroom experience.

A variety of designer-grade, custom Cottage and Village-style homes ranging from 1,668 to 3,044 square feet, with three finish options at set pricing levels, are available from the $290,000s to the $500,000s. Even the base level comes standard with granite countertops, soft-close cabinets, wooden shelving and built-ins, with options increasing in quality from there.

The grand opening event will be Saturday, April 22 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. and is open to the public. In addition to unveiling four model homes, the complimentary pig pickin’ includes potato salad, slaw, appetizers and desserts, as well as beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages. Free helicopter rides will also be available for anyone who purchases a home that day.
