Home is sweet—and home is all about family.
So when the folks at R.S. Parker Homes begin the design and construction of each new dwelling, they start out with the mindset that it’s for their own family. That’s their inspiration for building neighborhoods in the timeless spirit of tradition and community, with homes that are made to last. Your new abode will be your own family legacy—a theme that’s near and dear to everyone who’s proud to be associated with the company.
The family behind R.S. Parker Homes has been involved in residential land development for over 40 years—spanning three strong generations—and in the business of constructing communities for over 15 years. Ronnie Parker, Sr. founded the company based on a trio of defining characteristics that every team member today still stands by: craftsmanship, uncompromising business ethics, and a quality-built finished product. Several family members are still actively involved in the ownership and management of the company, each with a personal goal of treating clients the way they would want their own family members to be treated.
For this hard-working team, that mantra has ushered in shining success! Owner Ronnie Parker, Jr, knows buying a new home is one of the largest purchases a person will ever make, which gives his company the responsibility of providing customers with a home that totally meets—and even exceeds—their expectations.
“The most rewarding thing about my job is seeing people fulfill their dream of home ownership,” explains Parker.
He’s also proud that when happy homeowners offer testimonials about their experience with R.S. Parker Homes, they incorporate words like “quality” and “value.” Current residents of these much-loved communities are also quick to report that the building process was a smooth one—from the very first tour and meeting with an onsite sales representative, to consulting with the company’s design center on every intricate detail, to the final walk-through and being handed the keys to their new home. Equipped with extensive industry knowledge and the realization that this process is a very personal one for every member of your family, sales representatives will help you select a lot and home style, and explain all your structural options. Next, you’re in the very capable hands of the R.S. Parker Homes design team to discuss and select flooring, cabinets, and brick or siding options. Finally, it’s time for construction to begin!
Throughout the process, it becomes clear that the appeal of homes in these communities is definitely centered on the many details that set them apart from other neighborhoods.
“Clients want a house that feels like a home to them, warm and inviting, starting with the exterior of the house,” says Parker. “For example, everyone loves a good front porch and back screened-in porch for outdoor living.”
No argument there, we are in the South, and after all, R.S. Parker Homes has offices in both the Triad and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where they offer residents fine homes in several coastal communities.
Then, when it comes to the must-have features for the all-important family gathering spot—the kitchen—Parker says open kitchen plans with large islands and pendant lights are the most popular requests, along with light painted cabinets and unique, decorative hardware. Hardwood floors are typically going in throughout the main living area, and often on into the master bedrooms and studies.
R. S. Parker Homes is proud to offer communities throughout the Winston-Salem area at a variety of price levels, including Reagan Point in Pfafftown, Waterford Glen in Clemmons, and Barrington Oaks in Clemmons. While studying both the traditional and cutting-edge plans that are available, potential clients begin narrowing their choices based on price point and square footage, and of course, the location that best mirrors their family’s needs and interests.
Let’s meet these exciting communities: Nestled in the heart of one of the area’s most sought-after school districts (one mile from Ronald W. Reagan High School) and only minutes away from Wake Forest University and the Silas Creek area, the tranquil Reagan Point community offers eight unique floor plans with prices in the mid-$200s. Phase one is nearly sold out and a second phase will be rolled out within the next month. Besides beautiful brick exteriors, granite countertops, tankless water heaters and distinctive tray ceilings in the master bedroom, hardwood floors are standard in several main-level rooms.
A popular new community located in Clemmons (where Lasater Road meets Peace Haven Road), Waterford Glen now joins the already established and immensely popular Waterford community, which has grown and evolved right along with the entire Clemmons area. With prices starting in the high $200s, Waterford Glen offers families spacious lots and the wonderful amenities that come with an existing neighborhood, including a community pool available for new homeowners to join. This new addition to the area features nine unique floor plans, including three which are ranch-style plans with an available bonus room.
Situated just off Hampton Road in Clemmons, the community of Barrington Oaks will have 17 home sites available in Phase 2A, which will be located on Barrington Oaks Drive. Eleven lovely home sites will back up to a serene wooded area, several floor plans are one-level with an optional bonus room, and some feature master suites on the main level of the home for the ultimate in convenience. What a perfect location, with easy access to Highway 158, Stratford Road, Interstate 40, and all the amenities of Tanglewood Park.
Creating a community that truly feels like home to its residents, means providing a common ground for all who live there.
“A sense of pride and the freedom to enjoy the amenities and outdoor area within the neighborhood all contribute to the feeling of home,” says Parker.
With each new addition to its pristinely designed communities, R.S. Parker Homes delivers decades of experience and trust, as they strive to develop neighborhoods for real families—like yours!
