Preston Manor undergoing upgrades, renovations
Since purchasing Preston Manor in June in Wolfforth, the Wolfforth Land Co. has provided renovations and upgrades in the community.
For Preston Manor Managing Partner Robert H. Holmes II, that entails providing the energy, momentum and fulfilling promises longmade to the community residents and the South Plains.
“From the smallest detail to the most significant challenge, we hit the ground running to see this development through with excellence,”Holmes noted.
The City Council during a mid-July meeting voted to assign Public Improvement District No. 2 and an existing 380 agreement toWolfforth Land Co., under Holmes, based on the completed purchase of Preston Manor from United Development Funding (UDF).
The facility’s 6,500-square-foot amenity center, also referred to as The Club at Preston Manor, opened in January 2014. In the last sixmonths under Holmes and the Wolfforth Land Co., the club saw improvements in landscaping, lighting, pool furniture, interior decor andresidential furniture. Behind-the-scenes electrical, entryway stone, pool, security system and irrigation rehabilitation work have beenconducted.
In an early-December council meeting, Holmes reported the completion of the club’s kitchen for events to facilitate catering services.
The community is slated to see additional improvements/renovations in the future. Holmes reported that Preston Manor is upgradingthe hiking/jogging trail in the area and constructing a dog park for its residents.
“We are excited to see momentum going our way as residents and community leaders see us fulfilling promises faster than expected,”Holmes said. “From the beginning, we knew this was a community effort and we made the decision to partner with some of Lubbock’sbest talent to accomplish everything we wanted to do. From hiring Paradise Landscape, Dreamscape Turf and Landtroop Strategies, webrought on the right people to get the job done. In addition, hiring Teresa Wilkinson to manage the facilities as a resident herselfresulted in someone taking real ownership of the improvements in a leadership role. This was key to our early success.”
Holmes partnered with Apex Construction, Dan Wilson Homes, David Jordan Homes, Flatland Homes, Sable Homes, Salyer Homes,Sharkey Custom Homes and Steve Hill Homes to offer a Spring Tour of Homes — slated for April 22-23 and 29-30.
The efforts of Wolfforth Land Co. haven’t gone unnoticed.
“(It’s) very exciting, very positive and good for all the residents,” Preston Manor resident Barry Arnwine said. “It feels like somebodycares now and they are taking care of it and we are taking steps forward.”
Wilkinson added: “There has been tremendous improvement on the club itself. I have seen an energy and excitement with increasedresident participation and new events where we gather, like the recent Christmas party and Super Bowl watch party. We’ve seen anincrease in realtor excitement and home sales, as well.”
The Club at Preston Manor features an inside gathering area, outdoor patio living area, two swimming pools with “splash pads” and aworkout facility for its patrons. Fireplaces can be found inside and outside of the facility, while nine tennis courts can be found on theexterior.
“We really want to be known as the community with unrivaled amenities across the South Plains,” Holmes noted. “With our Spring Tourhomes starting in the high $290,000, visitors will see that you simply can’t get these kinds of amenities, stellar Frenship schools, this levelof builders and the sense of community at this price point anywhere else.”
