At Home in Woodstock

South on Main, Woodstock's New Urban Village

The Woodstock way is to celebrate both its history and embrace the new. With open arms, our town welcomes flourishing new businesses and residents. John Wieland, the founder of John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods, the Southeast’s leading home builder for decades, contributes to the new developments of Woodstock with his JW Collection. The JW Collection is the legacy business of John Wieland. It represents his 50-year commitment to building better homes, a promise he has kept for over 30,000 homeowners and continues to uphold.

Character, not quantity, is the guiding principle of the JW Collection. No two homes are alike, every home is different and personal for every homeowner. John is actively involved in creating South on Main, a rare boutique collection of homes and townhomes that upholds quality over quantity.

South on Main’s traditional design rings true to Woodstock’s roots and historical surroundings. The neighborhood redefines luxury living with a new urban flair. One of the distinct features of the area is that the design is for today’s metropolitan lifestyle, where having it all and being in the heart of it all aren’t mutually exclusive. The collection is walkable and right where you want to be -steps from Woodstock’s downtown. 

Every home and townhome’s interior is as meticulously designed and crafted as the exterior. John Wieland has been inspirational in improving home finishes, often going to great lengths, including manufacturing his cabinetry and other products. The JW Collection continues this legacy, sourcing top-grade cabinetry, millwork, appliances, lighting, flooring, and stone. John personally oversees the selection of materials ensuring their appropriateness for his quality homes.

The interior design of the JW Collection is airy and designed to allow natural light to flow in during all hours of the day. Though the homes are bright and fresh, details such as intricate tile work, fireplaces, and wood features peppered throughout the homes add a cozy appeal to the space. The remarkable juxtaposition of openness and comforting elements allows homeowners to live inspired lives. Whether you are hosting a big party or relaxing with a cup of coffee, the JW Collection’s architectural design welcomes both.  

JW Collection creates dream kitchens with both balance and depth. The kitchen designs incorporate well-built features necessary for functionality, such as quality lighting, appliances, and JW signature ceiling-high cabinets. The living rooms and bedrooms are simple, sleek, and elegant. High ceilings and well-thought-out layouts between one space and another enhance homeowners’ living patterns. Elsewhere in the home, the bathrooms and entryways exude a crisp, immaculate elegance.

JW Collection is thoughtfully designed and architecturally refined with cohesiveness. Both large-scale and minute elements in each aspect of the different home’s interiors ensure the space is optimized. Peak functionality accommodates all ages and lifestyles regardless of abilities without letting go of JW Collection’s desire for sophistication and style. 

JW Collection homes are built to last beyond a lifetime. Each house is constructed with premium materials selected for site suitability and sustainability. These resources are coupled with detailed engineering and veteran project managers who oversee professional crews, ensuring your home’s solid construction. JW Collection homes are built to be beautiful today and truly create a family legacy long into the future.

John Wieland is a much-lauded home builder, and his art and technique of designing and building are timeless. With Woodstock’s growing population, it is exciting to see how JW Collection is helping to accommodate both longtime locals and newcomers with homes that are built with the utmost quality. Excellence, passion, empowerment, accountability, and integrity are JW Collection’s core values, and this is evident in South on Main, as it is an incredible addition to our Woodstock community.
