Bird's Eye

Bill Ingram's Bird's Eye is one of the nine plan options available in the cabin section now open at The Willows.

Russell Lands On Lake Martin has unveiled a new neighborhood in the Willow Point community. Russell Cabins at The Willows includes 12 lots in Phase 2 of the recently opened neighborhood on the north bank of Pitchford Hollow. Eight waterfront and four water-access lots are now available inside the gate on Bulgers Mill Way.

The cabin sector availability comes sooner than had been originally planned, but the timing was right to bring these lots up as an option, explained Russell Lands Vice President Real Estate Sales Steve Arnberg.

“The 27 lots in Phase 3 at The Willows went faster than anticipated, and houses went up there fast, as well. We saw more demand than we had availability, so it made sense to release these now,” Arnberg said.

Classic Homes has been selected as the builder for this unique Lake Martin neighborhood, which will include a central park with a playing field and greenspace.

“Chad Calhoun at Classic Homes has built 62 cabins for Russell Lands since 2011. They are beautiful homes, and customers love them; it just made sense to work with him on this project,” Arnberg added.

Clients could choose from nine plans, some of which have been upgraded from previous options in other neighborhoods, including Bill Ingram’s Birds Eye plan with enlarged room sizes, relocation of the fireplace and a more traditional style.

The guidelines for this neighborhood include 35-foot setbacks, which keep more trees on the lots for enhanced privacy. The cabins generally would be about 3,500 square feet for one story, including porches and attached outdoor living spaces, and the gate will be monitored by video from the Willow Point guardhouse, Arnberg said.

“The location is popular; it’s close to Willow Point, has great views and larger lots and great exposure,” Arnberg said.

The average waterfront price point for complete homes at Russell Cabins at The Willows would be about $1.2 million, depending on the plan chosen, Arnberg said.
