Doninger Joins Fore Properties
Mike Doninger has joined the broker sales team of Fore Properties Realty Inc., a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World.
Fore Properties has also announced its affiliation with the marketing of The Tradition of Old Town, Pinehurst's new upscale townhome community.
Doninger, in tandem with Wayne Haddock of Pinehurst Homes, is developing The Tradition of Old Town. Ground-breaking ceremonies are set for 4 p.m. Oct. 23.
Crescent State Bank is working with The Tradition of Old Town in financing this project.
"They have been just outstanding to work with," Doninger said.
Haddock was selected as the builder for The Tradition of Old Town. Pinehurst Homes is the only builder honored with 11 straight home builder awards, including 15 awards for Home of the Year from the Moore County Home Builders Association.
"My home is in the village of Pinehurst," Haddock said. "The preservation of the village is a top priority of mine. I have restored numerous homes in the village and take great pride in the final product. The Tradition of Old Town is a townhome project consisting of 20 individual units. Each unit was designed featuring a historical home in the village.
"I am extremely proud to be associated with a development group whose intent is to maintain the architectural ambience of Pinehurst. They are committed to deliver a well-built, upper end product that we can all be proud of.
"This is a great start for the NewCore historical district that will set precedence. I am proud to be a part of it. The permit that was pulled for this project is the 25th for Pinehurst Homes Inc. in the historic district. We are very proud of this distinction."
Bill Sahadi, owner/broker of Fore Properties, said, "The Tradition of Old Town will be a world-class community in a world-class village honoring the history and spirit of Pinehurst and ushering in another page to the town's storied history. Mike is doing everything possible to honor that tradition and will be a very familiar presence on-site, shepherding the property to its completion."
Doninger is enthusiastic about his project.
"The Tradition of Old Town is the culmination of a dream of mine to combine my love of golf with my chosen professions of real estate and land development," he said. "I have a deep respect and appreciation for Pinehurst's rich history and reputation as one of the world's foremost golf Meccas.
"Our community's name implies our goal of blending the architectural details of Pinehurst's historic district, Old Town, with the modern materials and upscale amenities that can make life truly enjoyable and carefree. These are truly custom luxury townhomes, designed by Metro Architectural, out of Raleigh. The Tradition of Old Town is a short walking distance to the very heart of Old Town with all of its shops, restaurants and hotels, and literally across the street from the Village Arboretum and the NewCore development area, where new shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues will be blended with parks, open spaces and walking paths."
The project has 20 townhomes, which come with a Pinehurst Country Club membership that includes access to six golf courses, including the famed Pinehurst No. 2. In addition, Pinehurst Country Club members enjoy access to tennis, lawn sports, dining, social activities, pools, beach club and spa facilities.
The grounds, landscaping and exteriors will all be maintained through the homeowners' association. Each townhome has a main level master suite and an elevator to access all levels, and six units have walk-out basements.
Some of the features of these 20 custom residences, which range from 3,100 to 3,700 square feet, include state-of-the-art appliances, bathroom and kitchen fixtures, European tile, granite surfaces, hardwood flooring, and two-car garages with optional buildable space above for home/office, recreation room or live-in help purposes.
"Although these homes come with every conceivable option, we will work closely with our future owners to further customize any facets of the homes they choose," said Cindy Baker, allied member and owner of CJ Designs Fayetteville.
A design center is nearing completion at a site right across the street from The Tradition of Old Town at 200 McCaskill Road.
