Our History

In the 1960s, Dr. Walter Thomas began work on damming the natural spring to provide a larger water source for his farmland. The property, located off Cedar Creek Road, featured heavily wooded, rolling topography centered by a spring fed 75-acre private lake. For more than 40 years, Dr. Thomas, his wife and six children enjoyed horseback riding, farming, family picnics and exploring the land of Cedar Creek Farms. The lake was constructed by engineers to achieve the best environment for fish, and the family stocked the lake with largemouth bass and other fish.

In 2005, Crescent Communities, LLC, a Charlotte-based land management and real estate development company acquired the unique land, its history and meticulously cared-for lake while investing about $33 million in improvements and amenities. The property, now named Hidden Lake, was transformed into a residential development complete with 227 acres of open space, 100-acre nature park, miles of nature trails, a community lake house, boat house, and an outdoor pavilion for community and family events. The vision of this property was to create a canvas for an exclusive, private community tucked just outside Raleigh, NC in a highly intimate, yet refined setting.

In 2014, Raleigh-based custom home building group, Ange Signature Homes, purchased Hidden Lake from Crescent Communities.

“This is the most pristine site in our region,” says Rusty Ange, president of Ange Signature Homes. “Crescent preserved the natural landscape while incorporating luxuries such as a lake house, pavilion, boat house and outdoor living spaces. We are carrying out that focus by updating the amenities and building homes that encourage harmony between man and nature. It’s a truly unique place to live.”

Ange Signature Homes, a father- son led company with over 50 years of experience, has perfected the custom home process. Their breath-taking architectural details with energy efficiencies and design elements are personalized to their customer’s discerning tastes. Today, the Ange team is focused on personal service. Each buyer meets directly with the builder, as well as an in-house designer in order to create a truly personalized home. Ange Signature Homes has built in premier Triangle estate communities such as Regency Estates, Regency Manors, Weycroft, Hasentree, Hidden Lake, High Croft, as well as custom homes built for individuals inside and outside the beltline area of Raleigh.

Currently there are 56 opportunities in the first Phase to choose a home site and build a custom home, or customize a home that is already under construction. Future development plans include a second phase on 176-acres across the lake.
