FrontDoor Communities was selected as one of the home builders for the much-anticipated Summers Corner project, located in the heart of South Carolina’s Lowcountry in Summerville between Beech Hill Road and Summers Drive. Construction of five model homes is underway along with a number of amenities at Summers Corner, where modern amenities meet small-town charm.
FrontDoor Communities, alongside Sabal Homes and Eastwood Homes, will develop a garden-like community with several small, distinct neighborhoods that mimic a small town centered around a park. Sprawling more than 6,000 acres, the community will have numerous amenities including Buffalo Lake with a pavilion and canoe launch; a neighborhood pool house; an outdoor market and a multi-faceted trail system, among others. The community will also boast common areas where residents can gather for a glass of wine or craft beer with neighbors, join a yoga class, enjoy a farm-to-table dinner, have a cup of coffee, take in a flower or vegetable gardening demonstration, or browse the wall art installation. Summers Corner will also have a future Village Center complete with opportunities for shopping, dining and even working.
With historic Lowcountry architecture influences, five distinct home portfolios have been announced so far – Cottage, Terrace, Garden, Manor and Heritage home styles – with more to come. Designed to honor the nature around them, none of the homes will be farther than a two-minute walk from the park. This unique, one-of-a-kind community is founded on the time-honored principle of connection with nature and each other. The atmosphere that Summers Corner will provide is a live, work, play community in the truest form.
The first neighborhoods are estimated to bring 400 homes. FrontDoor Communities will offer homes in the Cottage, Terrace and Garden portfolios, with plans ranging from 1,300 to 2,800 square feet and prices starting in the high $200,000s. Homes will be ready for sale later this fall.
On Saturday, Aug. 1, there will be a preview event for potential homeowners to see the Corner House, view homes under construction and learn more about Summers Corner. Held from 9 to 11:30 a.m., attendees must be on the list to attend the preview. To sign up for the Summers Corner interest list, register on the Summers Corner website in the “Join Us” section.
