Essex Homes Announces Opening of Model Home in Lake View at Barr Lake

Winchester ExteriorLexington, South Carolina, is a sought-after area that’s easy to love. It has that small town feel with the benefits of the capital city only minutes away. Barr Lake is located in the heart of Lexington and is the newest Lexington County neighborhood from Essex Homes. The grand opening of the professionally decorated model, which is located in the Lake View section of Barr Lake, will take place Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016.

The model home features the Winchester plan, which has been one of the top selling plans for Essex Homes because of the open concept, high ceilings and flexibility for extra bedrooms and storage space. The Winchester is a one-story plan with a half story option. The Barr Lake model has the downstairs owner’s suite with trey ceiling, sitting area and spa-like private bath with huge walk-in closet. There are also two secondary bedrooms downstairs and a large sunroom open to the family room. Other features found in the model home include built-in bookcases, a butler’s pantry, slate colored glazed cabinetry in the open kitchen, and an outdoor living space.  The half-story is ideal for guests or a teen suite and includes a huge living area, full bath and bedroom.

Homes in Barr Lake’s Lake View section are priced from the mid-$300,000s, and offer design options ranging from three to five bedrooms and two to four-and-a-half bathrooms. The amenity plan for the community includes a swimming pool, clubhouse, the lake with a dock that provides access for kayaks, canoes or paddleboats, and paved walkways for strolling or jogging.  In addition, Barr Lake features white, sandy beaches that will be the perfect place to relax this summer.

Barr Lake homes are located in Lexington School District One, “where children and learning are one.”  For added lifestyle, Barr Lake is near Lake Murray, the Blowfish baseball stadium, dining options and other attractions, as well as downtown Columbia – the state’s capital and the University of South Carolina.
