MIDDLESEX — A new 65-house subdivision is expected to be a boon to this southern Nash County town’s local economy.
While the first phase of the Beaver Creek subdivision is outside Middlesex’s town limits, new residents will mean more commerce for the town, said Mayor Lu Harvey Lewis.
“It will also mean more revenue for the fire department,” Lewis said. Fire districts collect 8 cents per $100 of property valuation on tax bills.
The second phase of the subdivison is set to be built within the town’s extraterritorial jurisdiction, which doesn’t mean property tax revenue but would place that section of the subdivision under the town’s permiting processes.
Builders participated in a Friday groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the new subdivision at Claude Lewis and Beaver Dam roads.
Realtor Tammy Eickhoff said she’s proud to be developing an exceptional family-focused neighborhood in Middlesex.
“Just about 20 minutes from the capital by way of major interstate, Beaver Creek is an ideal community for growing families that want to be close to Raleigh but still enjoy affordable living with small-town values,” Eickhoff said.
The property offers a rural setting, limited restrictions, hilltop views and a 7-acre nature preserve. Homes will be ready in early 2021 with cathedral ceilings, a fireplace, shiplap walls, granite counters and Moen fixtures, according to flyers for the property.
