The Guide: Welcome to another segment of The Greater Charleston New Homes Guide “Ride with The Guide.” Today we are here in Dorchester County visiting The Ponds by Kolter Homes located in Summerville.
The Guide: Hey, everyone! Welcome to another segment of “Ride With The Guide.” Today we’re in Summerville at The Ponds by Kolter hanging out with Chase. The Ponds has nine designer-decorated homes and Chase is going to give us a tour of one of them. Which one are we going to see today, Chase?
Chase: Today we’re going to check out our Archer model.
The Guide: Awesome, can we go on in?
Chase: Yea, c’mon! Follow me.
The Guide: What’s the best aspect about where The Ponds is located?
Chase: We’re in the middle of thousands of acres of conserved wildlife but still five-to-ten minutes from shopping, groceries and being in town.
The Guide: Tell us about life at The Ponds. What sets this community apart from the rest?
Chase: There’s so much going on, but it’s all right here. From the 20 miles of walking trails to the large ponds you can go kayaking, fishing and canoeing in, to the onsite YMCA — anything you’re looking to do, it doesn’t take a long time to get there. It’s right on site.
Chase: The Archer starts off at two bedrooms, two bath and 1800 SF, but has lots of structural and design options where you can get up to four bedrooms, 2500 SF and three full baths.
The Guide: What have been some of home buyers’ favorite features?
Chase: Number one is going to be the openness. The Archer is a very open plan and the 11-foot ceilings in the family and gathering areas really set it apart. On top of that we have a really large covered front porch which comes standard and people seem to love that.
The Guide: Chase, this kitchen is great. I mean, it’s large, it’s inviting. What are some of your favorite features about it?
Chase: In regards to the kitchen, the first thing I love is the oversized island that comes standard. I mean, you can set four or five people right at the bar for informal dinners, and it’s also great for entertaining. Another great aspect of the kitchen is the large cabinetry. It comes standard at 42 inches, with crown molding and hardware—something you really don’t find in a lot of places. And the 11-foot ceilings. Everybody is all about the open floorplan nowadays and this really just opens up the whole thing, not to mention the relation to the dining room, as well as the great room. When you have people over, whether it’s your family or friends, it’s just easy to communicate and stay organized.
The Guide: What are three of the biggest “wow” features found in The Archer?
Chase: First, our huge covered front porch. Second, definitely our over-sized island in the kitchen which overlooks the dining room as well as the great room. And then that large, dual-sink vanity in the master bedroom.
The Guide: Wow, this master bedroom! Who wouldn’t want this in their home?
Chase: Yea, we get a lot of really good feedback when it comes to the master bedroom, for two real main reasons. The first is going to be the location, and the second is the layout. In regards to the location, it’s in the back of the home. With this being a one-story house, the great room, the living areas are a little bit more towards the center of the front. It really serves as a master retreat—a place to get away, read a book, watch a different channel. Also, the way it’s laid out with the windows and the placement of the doors, make it very easy to put out your bed, night stands and the rest of the furniture in the bedroom.
The Guide: All of these are really great features of a master bedroom, including this bathroom here.
Chase: Yea, the bathroom with the large dual-sink vanities, as well as the large walk-in shower—it really is a wow feature for this home.
The Guide: If someone wants more information on The Ponds, how can they contact you?
