Essex Homes to Begin Building in the Conservancy at McLean

Lake WylieEssex Homes is excited to be among a select group of elite builders at the Conservancy at McLean, a waterfront community on Lake Wylie in Belmont, North Carolina. Essex will begin construction on the new low-maintenance homes this month and is honored to be a part of the community.

To meet the needs of buyers in the area, Essex’s home designs will be better than ever. The builder will start construction on its ranch-style homes that will range in price from the mid-$240,000s to the mid-$300,000s. The homes will feature three bedrooms and two bathrooms with the option for additional space on the second level that would perfect for a media room or kids room. Homes built by Essex will also have beautifully designed exteriors with the choice of cement siding, brick or stone.

In addition to the homes, the community will offer a variety of amenities for homeowners to take advantage of.  Amenities in the community include multiple pools, cabanas, a clubhouse, community garden, future marina and an outdoor event site. Residents will also have access to Lake Wylie where they can enjoy several different lake activities and picturesque views. The community also gives easy access to the vibrant trails of the Seven Oaks Preserve. In addition, the Conservancy’s homeowner’s association will maintain the front lawns, allowing families to have more time to spend together and make memories.

Home buyers have a lot to look forward to as this new construction project begins. With the great homes, convenient location and even better amenities, buyers don’t want to miss out on the chance of living in an Essex home in the Conservancy at McLean.

Sneak a Peek of the Progress at Summers Corner

Summers Corner RenderingFrontDoor 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.

Garden Portfolio Rendering

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.
