With over $10 million already invested into the spectacular 1,400 acre North Carolina golf community, Belmont Lake Preserve, the Maryland-based, Halle Companies, continues in its beautification and expansion of the Rocky Mount property. The most recent part of the expansion plan is the Villas at Belmont Lake, an 83-home development aimed to suit the needs of Northeast transplants as well as commuters to Rocky Mount and current residents nearing retirement or getting ready to Retire in NC.
A recent article penned by Rocky Mount Telegram staff writer, Corey Davis, detailed the optimism shared by both the Halle Companies and the support and appreciation shown by the surrounding Rocky Mount community in speaking of Halle’s investment in the property to date and the further expansion of Belmont Lake Preserve giving people even more reason to Retire in NC.
Halle Companies assistant vice president, Eric Rifkin, spoke with the reporter on a variety of topics, beginning with the Villas at Belmont Lake and how the company is trying to help give a boost to the housing market across the entire area. “It’s going to be patio homes or ranch-style homes going into that subdivision (the Villas). We’re not going to be building 83 homes at one time…we’re going to build as buyers come.” Rifkin went on to say, “After the lots are completed, we’re hoping sales will start to pick up in the area. We understand that Rocky Mount doesn’t have a lot of sales every year…and our biggest goal will continue to be driving traffic and driving sales in the area.”
Rocky Mount Mayor, David Combs, also spoke in the Telegram piece, detailing the positive impact that the Halle Companies purchase has had and that he foresees it continuing to have on the local community. “They’ve made major investments here and they’re going to keep investing in Rocky Mount,” Mayor Combs said. “They’re adding to the tax base by building homes and building lots.” He concluded, “From a city perspective, as Belmont continues to develop, its like new industry coming here.”
Later in the article, Rifkin shared in the Mayor’s optimistic take on great things that lie ahead for the community and spoke of the continued beautification of Belmont Lake driving both locals and commuters in addition to those relocating from out of state to want to come to Rocky Mount to Retire in NC.
“We have a beautiful piece of property and we hear a lot of things going on potentially downtown that is extremely reinvigorating for the area,” Rifkin stated. “We hope since there are people living in the Triangle and commuting to companies like Pfizer, Cummins, and Honeywell that they will start to look at Belmont Lake Preserve and see that they can drive five minutes and be back home in this beautiful community.” He concluded, “We’re definitely trying to capture those people.”
Since being purchased by the Halle Companies, Belmont Lake Preserve, has under gone an incredible face lift, catching the eye of baby boomers across the nation who are looking to Retire in NC as they were recently named by “Where to Retire” Magazine among its prestigious annual list of the Top 50 Master Planned Communities in the United States.
Among the vast improvements seen at Belmont Lake since the Halle purchase is the gorgeous, new, 12,000 square foot Community Clubhouse, complete with both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a state-of-the-art gym and training facility, and dining and hosting facilities. Equally as impressive, is the Golf Clubhouse, complete with a full pro shop facility, an on site PGA professional available for instruction, and one of the top rated restaurants in the area, The Main Course at Belmont, serving a full breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu seven days a week.
Adjacent to golf clubhouse is yet another investment that may entice many to Retire in NC at Belmont Lake, the Belmont Lake Golf Club. A David Johnson Golf Design 18-hole championship course, Belmont Lake has been named to the “Top 100 to Play” in the state of North Carolina and proves to be a fun, yet challenging course for golfers of all skill sets.
