McLendon Hills Real Estate News

Summer 2016

Strengthening of community ties

The McLendon Hills community is always welcoming new neighbors. Whether it be holiday events, garden club, book club, kayaking or simply gathering for food and drinks, there is a social vibe to be found. If you feel the need to get away from it all, but still be involved and close to everyday conveniences, consider McLendon Hills as your new home: country living with amenities, without the price of a country club.

This spring has brought us dozens of customer tours who are looking to relocate. Be sure and look for special offerings coming soon.

Another successful Independence Day celebration was enjoyed by all. Festivities were moved from the lake to our new covered arena, offering shade and shelter from potential thunderstorms. Bingo, cornhole, food and door prizes were enjoyed by over 90 neighbors and guests.

McLendon Home Construction Company is underway with two new custom homes. MHC are proud recipients of “Home of the Year Awards” from Moore County Home Builders Association. Call us today to discuss building your dream home!

Ideal-Living  Best  of  the  Best"Best of the Best"

We are pleased to announce that McLendon Hills has been designated as one of ideal-LIVING magazine’s “Best of the Best” for Equestrian Communities. Nominations were submitted earlier this year. An editorial committee assembled by IL reviewed the qualifications of each nominee and selected winners in more than 35 categories.

Lake Life

Early spring our resident kayakers began enjoying beautiful days on Lake Troy Douglas. With our mild but seasonal climate, watercraft season isn’t only for spring and summer! Take time to enjoy your kayaks, boats, canoes and paddle boards and take advantage of the many nice days coming our way. Resident volunteers are available to help with first time kayaking lessons and instruction. The community pontoon is available for rent. Please call ahead to make your reservations!

The Lake and Wildlife Committee completed three significant Projects during 2015. Water quality analysis was continued with good results. A cover project was completed in deep water for fish propagation. A kayak rack was built at The Point. Our committee will meet soon to plan this year’s projects. Some potential projects include: (1) Add another section to the kayak rack., (2) Kayak contest (to be defined), (3) Kids fishing contest, (4) Adult fishing contest, (5) Additional fish cover projects, and (6) Continued water sampling. Here’s to a season of good boating and fishing, and opportunities to watch our abundant wildlife.

Upcoming events include our first McLendon Hills Barn Tour where our residents can come and visit many of our mini-farms/barn to see how we manage our horses and donkeys. This will be held in October as we are still working the details. Maybe even hay rides from one barn to the next. Stay tuned!

The covered arena continues to have new features - the mirrors will be up soon and other improvements are slated for the near future. If you have not stopped by to look at the arena, you are missing a masterpiece! Take a look.

Neighborhood Improvements

Riley Paving recently resurfaced some of the roads in need of repair. This included areas around the back gate where most construction vehicles travel. Residents and pedestrians alike can now enjoy new and improved roads.
