Four privately-owned homes and one spec home are under construction at 505 Ranch Club at Cedar Creek Lake.

The spec home (illustrated in sketches) will be 4,562 square feet, and it will be priced at $1.995 million. The architect is Jerry Coleman, formerly of Wilson Fuqua and Associates before launching his own company, and the general contractor is Rick Harrell, who has built projects in the range of up to $10 million for Eastern Partners and others for 10 years.

“This spec home will be extremely well done,” said Suzanne Warner of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, who is the listing agent for 505 Ranch Club. “505 Ranch Club is top notch, and the amenities are endless.”

Warner notes that the homes built at 505 Ranch Club vary greatly in style, ranging from “cool rustic contemporary to farmhouse style.”

All homes constructed at 505 Ranch Club must be approved by an architectural committee.

The homeowners’ association takes care of all maintenance of the acreage. The dues are $1,365 per quarter.

“It has a true ranch feel,” Warner said. “It can be very private or you can be social in this setting, depending on your mood.”
