— If you want to get out of the house -- and away from ACC basketball -- there's one place you can head.

The public can get a peek into Martha Stewart-inspired homes this weekend.

Stewart was in town on Thursday to show the media the homes, which are the first of their kind in the nation.

The development in Cary, called

Twin Lakes

, will eventually have 600 homes.

There are eight homes so far with three different styles: the Lily Pond home, inspired by Martha's beach cottage on Long Island; the Skylands home taken from Martha's house on the coast of Maine; and the Katorah Home named for her house in Katorah, New York.

The homes go on sale on Saturday and the public can view them on Sunday.

The houses range in size from 1,500 square feet to 4,100 square feet and in price from $200,000 to $500,000.

Twin Lakes

is near Chapel Hill Road and McCrimmon Parkway.
