Cabe Crossing

If you are in the market for a luxurious, newly-built home in the Durham area, you will definitely want to check out Cabe Crossing, a new community located along Eno River State Park! You just can’t go wrong with the quality of these Drees homes, convenience to both I-85 and I-40, and beauty of a state park with 30 miles of scenic walking trails.

Located nearby is another great community of new homes, also built by Drees, Pleasant Green Woods. This custom-home community includes 16 luxury homes with 1+-acre homesites.

Location of Pleasant Green Woods.


Homes in Pleasant Green Woods range from 2,906 to 3,558 square feet  and are priced from $475,400 to $555,400. There are seven floor plans available, including ranch and two-story homes. Amenities include Drees’ signature “living triangle”: an ample kitchen island with the kitchen itself, surrounded by the family room with a corner fireplace, dining room with custom cabinetry, and outdoor living area. Some models can include a four-season sunroom or screened porch.

If that’s not enough to convince you, here’s one more reason to check out these homes: every Drees home comes with DreeSmart energy savings and home comfort innovations. DreeSmart is the builder’s proprietary whole-house integrated system that combines energy-saving innovations with rigorous third party-inspections and guarantees.  Drees is an Environments for Living Certified Partner, and the builder even goes so far as to guarantee your home’s annual heating- and cooling- related energy usage as well as the comfort of your new home.

Have you heard of the HERS system? (I wrote about it in a previous post). The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) was developed by RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network) and is the nationally-recognized system for inspecting and calculating the energy performance of both new and used homes. Each 1-point decrease in the HERS Score corresponds to a 1% reduction in energy consumption. The lower the score, the lower the energy cost. Every Drees home is inspected by a Certified RESNET Home Energy Rater and receives a HERS Score. Drees homes score an average of 65 -70 points better and deliver nearly 50% more energy savings over typical existing homes.
