FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
[Flat Rock, NC – March 12, 2018] Those attending an open house at The Village at Flat Rock, NC will find just over 100 tiny homes settled between tasteful landscaping, winding walkways, and stream-fed water features. Residents walk their dogs, enjoy common spaces, and maintain well-manicured gardens.
Flat Rock’s new pocket community looks so welcoming, it’s hard to believe it’s still fairly new.
Prior to 2017, the property was known as The Village of Wildflowers, an RV resort founded by Mr. Gil Gilman. Since its founding, Mr. Gilman had been searching for a strong leader to perfect the property and grow the plan, extending the vision for alternative housing choices across the United States.
As a seasoned real estate investor and entrepreneur, Mike McCann has a long, successful history in community development. When Mr. McCann discovered The Village of Wildflowers he was already following the modern tiny house movement closely and conceptualizing an alternative to the traditional private community offering. He envisioned shrinking the model down to a resource responsible application, providing homes ranging in size from 200 – 700 square feet.
Simple Life Partners purchased The Village of Wildflowers property in 2017 and together Mr. McCann and Mr. Gilman began to build a new kind of housing alternative, in a new kind of community.
Under new ownership, The Village at Flat Rock, NC approached Henderson County officials to update the existing codes and zoning to allow for tiny homes on wheels, lifestyle amenities, and outdoor living spaces.
Shortly thereafter home builders Blue Ridge Log Cabins, Clayton Homes, and Cornerstone Tiny Homes were brought on as suppliers. “With the change in ownership and identity we were determined to raise the standards of manufacturing,” said McCann. All the tiny homes in The Village at Flat Rock, NC are built to nationally recognized building codes and come standard with beautiful exteriors, upscale finishes, and increased insulation.
Lastly, the new ownership turned its attention to amenities and grounds upgrades. Landscape architect Joel Osgood was commissioned to build common green spaces and a private, landscaped, gated entrance. The section of Dunn Creek that runs through the property will be preserved, fortified, and beautified and several active lifestyle attractions are under construction including a swimming pool, pickleball court, bocce ball court, dog park, clubhouse, fitness center, and yoga room.
“We want to encourage residents to step outdoors and experience a connection with the community,” said McCann, “The Village at Flat Rock, NC is designed to allow homeowners a living experience that extends beyond the walls of their own home.“
