RICHMOND HILL, Ga.— (Dec. 15, 2021) — Richmond Hill’s latest community is coming to life in Heartwood, where Centex and Pulte Homes will offer new single-family homes for first-time and move-up buyers who want fast and easy access to Savannah, plenty of amenities and top-ranked schools within the neighborhood.

Pulte and Centex will initially feature 172 homesites within the larger master-planned Heartwood community, including some with wooded and wetland views. Planned amenities include a swimming pool, miles of meandering walking and biking trails and plenty of space to play outdoors.

“We will offer a wide variety of our most popular floorplans in Heartwood, with design choices to perfectly suit the needs of every homebuyer,” said Carter Faucette, General Sales Manager for PulteGroup, the parent company of both brands. “The location couldn’t be better for those who want to cut down on their work commute, have their kids go to excellent schools, enjoy exploring historic Savannah or simply launch a boat at the nearby marina.”

Located a quick two minutes to the new I-95 interchange, Heartwood is under 20 minutes to the Savannah Hilton Head International Airport and a half-hour to both the Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. headquarters and historic downtown Savannah. Bryan County’s Frances Meeks and Richmond Hill Middle schools are located within the community as well as the replacement Richmond Hill High School now under construction and expected to open in 2024.

A formal grand opening of the sales offices and decorated model homes is expected to be held later in the spring when a few quick move-in homes also will become available. Homebuyers are encouraged to sign the online interest list to get the most current information and early access to pricing and homesite releases.

Centex expects to build 99 homes in its neighborhood with four floorplan choices ranging in size from three-to-five bedrooms and two-to-three baths. The Ibis single-story model home features four bedrooms, a generous kitchen and walk-in pantry and an adjoining gathering room and café that opens to a covered outdoor patio.

Pulte plans to build 73 homes and offer five floorplans ranging in size from two-to-six bedrooms and two-to-five baths. The two-story Continental model, with up to five bedrooms and four baths, is well suited for families and entertaining with a formal dining room and optional guest suite downstairs, as well as light-filled gathering room and kitchen.

Heartwood is located at Belfast Keller Road and Great Ogeechee Parkway, Richmond Hill. For more information, visit the Pulte community at and the Centex community at or call 912-244-8762.
