2011 BRUNSWICK COUNTY PARADE OF HOMES DIAMOND AWARD WINNER!
We create inspirational spaces. You’ll just call it ‘home’.
The Cottages at Holly Ridge was designed, developed and built
exclusively by Cardinal Builders
A comfortable cottage home that encourages abundant outdoor living, the bungalow has endeared itself to homeowners since its introduction in the early 1900s. Its relaxed livability is one of the main reasons it has endured.
Cardinal Builders creates close-knit communities in North Carolina that celebrate the bungalow, with wide covered porches and plenty of windows that bring nature’s beauty to the doorstep and into the home. Houses are set in intimate enclaves among the trees, yet are open to neighborly interaction. These homes exude comfort, casualness and fluid social spaces for gatherings of family and friends. Gardening is often embraced here, and the charming colors of the Carolina seasons provide a dramatic backdrop to everyday life.
Our team at Cardinal Builders takes pride in building homes that are both functional and charming. When these exceptional homes are combined with outdoor spaces they become dynamic and vibrant neighborhoods.
Cardinal Builders strives to create places that inspire the individual, support family relationships and encourage a strong sense of community. We enjoy welcoming new owners into The Cottages at Holly Ridge and forming lasting relationships with our clients. Cardinal Builders has created neighborhoods of quality and beauty throughout the region for decades.
Our goal is a satisfied customer. Buying a home can be a daunting task, especially for first time home buyers. We understand the excitement and the anxiety in buying a new home. We guide our customers through our streamlined process so they understand what is required from contract to closing.
We work closely with the lenders, appraisers and closing attorneys to ensure they have everything required to meet our closing schedules, we pride ourselves in meeting deadlines.
Another added luxury is our entire team operates out of the sales office located at the entrance to the neighborhood and is open 7 days a week.
This is great for our customers with questions and concerns because they know we have the ability to respond in a timely fashion.
Our most enjoyable moment is releasing keys to new Cottage owners.
Cardinal Builders uses our unique skills and passion for details to bring value to each home we build. With over 50 years of combined building experience, we know what it takes to to provide the best value for your investment and we fully stand behind our products. The importance of quality construction is our foremost priority, but we pride ourselves on meeting schedules and understanding those items that add value for each individual client. We try to understand the goals and expectations of each client and strive toward exceeding those goals. We tailor each build to our clients needs by matching priorities of quality, schedule, value and flexibility. By the end of our build, we have established relationships and trust with our clients.
"Under promise and over deliver" is our mantra, and I think most all of our clients would agree.
Design, details and individuality best describe my responsibilities to the homeowner. Working closely together, we make selections that create a cottage that is unique to you. From the shingles to the countertops, the cabinets to the flooring, we will bring together a cottage home that will bring you years of enjoyment.
Our uncommon attention to detail sets The Cottages apart.
Gardening is an integral part of cottage life. Wide covered porches and plentiful windows bring nature’s beauty to your doorstep and into the home. Each cottage home is landscaped uniquely for each lot and home choice. The changing colors of the Carolina seasons provide a dramatic backdrop to your everyday life.
I enjoy creating a unique landscape with every homeowner that fits their individual style.
My title at Cardinal Builders is "Superintendent" but my responsibilities are more that of "Choreographer".
Scheduling dozens of craftspeople and artisans to assemble a home of enduring quality and beauty is somewhat like choreographing technical dance steps.
Each step must be carefully timed and executed so as to result in a home that will take your breath away and be enjoyed for many years to come.
Join us and let us show you how we achieve the highest level of value and old fashioned quality rarely seen today.
From our homeowners:
