It all started in 1966 when Harry H. Hunt III, the founder of HHHunt, saw the need for faculty and student housing at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. Fast-forward five decades, now HHHunt is a leader in real estate development throughout the Southeast and one of the most trusted names in home building, apartment homes, master-planned communities, and senior living – improving the lives of thousands of people by becoming a trusted partner in every phase of their lives.
HHHunt’s first development outside of Virginia occurred in northwest Raleigh in 1983. Harbour Point, located on Lake Lynn, was a 198-apartment community with a clubhouse, pool, and several other amenities. As was common with all new HHHunt apartment communities, Harbour Point was extremely successful thanks to a combination of superb location and outstanding amenities and services.
In 1994, HHHunt ventured into its first master-planned community in Raleigh with the development of Pearson Farms. This beautiful, natural community was located on over 100 acres in Wake County and was near some of the best outdoor opportunities in the area.
The launch of Pearson Farms required a permanent office in Raleigh, so Jim Nicholson, the former Vice-President of Properties Development, set up the first office in his home in 1994. Eventually, traditional office space was secured to accommodate team members from the apartment living, home building, and senior living divisions. Having team members in one location made it much easier to collaborate on new ventures in the area.
HHHunt continues to grow its presence in Raleigh and our Vice-Chairman and CEO, Buck Hunt, is based in that office. Our current properties in the area include:
- Banks Pointe
- Enclave at Leesville
- Granite Falls
- Granite Falls Estates
- The Reserve at Wackena
- Townes at North Salem
Master Planned Communities
At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters, and we have loved every minute of being a part of the Raleigh community. We look forward to continuing to help the Triangle grow!
