On Wednesday April 20th, Rex Bost participated in a groundbreaking ceremony for Raleigh’s latest luxury estate community, Avalaire. Construction of the 100+ acre development has just begun, which comprises 56 gorgeous home sites in the Falls Lake vicinity, of which about a half dozen have presold. Being a member of the builder team, Bost had the opportunity to select a handful of the more private lots adjacent to dedicated greenspace, granting privacy and an expansive sense of property.


Avalaire includes 20+ acres of pristine preserved woodlands that will host walking/jogging trails and natural water features. Its proximity to Falls Lake and I-540 provides a rare combination of nature-inspired, secluded living along with quick access to dining, shopping, and travel. Avalaire is positioned and designed to be a highly desirable locale for years to come.


Bost Custom Homes was honored to be selected as the builder for Avalaire’s model home, which will be the first home-start in the neighborhood scheduled to break ground mid-summer.

Eric Sherman, Bost’s Estimator, eloquently describes how the process of designing and building a showcase home is a distinguished opportunity that allows them to excel as a company:

Eric Sherman

“Working on a model home is always exciting and really just a fun undertaking at Bost Homes, especially in the context of a neighborhood like Avalaire.  We form a cohesive team of experts and collaborate on a livable piece of art that showcases the best parts of what we do.  Working with clients is an amazingly rewarding process and our entire approach to building is geared towards helping our clients realize their vision.  We love it.  Building a Model Home, however, is an opportunity to put our heads together as a team; to create our vision based on our collective experiences and to fulfill our desire to try something new.  It gives us a chance to create something truly unique and innovative while giving us free reign to think miles outside of the box in our pursuit of the wow-factor.”

In addition to promoting the neighborhood and builder team, prominent showcase homes such as this serve as catalysts to push the local industry forward. This home will be a beacon of sustainable design, incorporating a rainwater harvesting and reuse system, solar PV system, recycled and reclaimed building materials, high efficiency appliances/HVAC/ insulation, and even a state sponsored radon mitigation system for education and advocacy purposes.
