Summers Corner today announced four portfolios of home styles by three renowned homebuilders.

Summers Corner ( today announced four portfolios of home styles by three renowned homebuilders, each of whom was selected for their ability to bring the community’s unique concept to life. Summers Corner will offer neighborhoods of character centered around parks, porches and gardens.

The distinctive home portfolios -- Cottage, Terrace, Garden and Manor -- will offer a mix of living choices, all of which blend traditional Summerville and Lowcountry styles with contemporary amenities. The initial phase will feature three respected regional builders (a fourth builder and a Heritage portfolio will be unveiled in coming weeks):

  • FrontDoor Communities will offer homes ranging from 1,300 to 2,800 square feet starting from the high $200,000s.
  • Sabal Homes will build homes from 1,600 to 2,800 square feet with starting prices in the high $200,000s.
  • Eastwood Homes will offer houses starting from the high $300,000s and will range in size from 2,700 to 3,600 square feet.

Located at Highway 61 and Summers Drive, Summers Corner will be unique among area communities, carefully straddling urban and suburban, rural and settled. Original home designs, and ample gardens and parks that celebrate the “maker” economy, will distinguish a network of neighborhoods. Homes will be ready for sale in August.

Summers Corner’s neighborhoods are being meticulously designed to honor nature - no home will be more than a two-minute walk from a park. Generous new plantings will complement the forestland that threads throughout the community. A number of homes will feature Carolina Yards, a Clemson Extension certification program that celebrates healthy, watershed friendly landscapes.

The community’s 6,000 acres will include a network of freshwater lakes, miles of trails, and gathering spots that invite connection. Summers Corner will be home to two new Dorchester District 2 schools: Sand Hill Elementary and the new home of Rollings Middle School of the Arts. Both will open in the 2016-17 academic year. A 1,000-plus-seat community performing arts space will be an important community feature.

The first neighborhoods will bring 400 homes, and numerous amenities, including:

  • Buffalo Lake and its pavilion and canoe/kayak launch;
  • a multi-faceted trail system;
  • Corner House, demonstration gardens, and outdoor market; and
  • A neighborhood pool house.

The community will also include about 200,000 square feet of commercial space.
