Ride with The Guide: Featured Model Home
Our featured model home this month is Cresswind Charleston’s Hickory*, one of the plans in Kolter’s Tidewater Collection. This home’s multiple gables give it a traditional look that appeals to homeowners. A three bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom design, the 2,136-square foot floor plan includes all the contemporary features you expect. Kolter Homes, the builder at Cresswind Charleston, also includes a superb array of luxury home features and energy-saving components that make living easy.
Specifically for buyers 55+, The Hickory plan offers all-on-one-floor living, unless you select the optional bonus room. For all their Cresswind homes, Kolter includes features to make life comfortable. For example in the owner’s bath, you get an oversized shower with ceramic tile shower floor and walls, raised double vanities, and comfort-height, elongated commode.
Boasting an open layout, The Hickory is distinguished with options for a four-foot garage extension, screened porch, sunroom or even extended sunroom and a second floor is optional with a bonus room offering a full bath. Check out their interactive floorplan which allows you to select options and visualize how they fit in the home. As you choose your optional elements, you can save your design and download a brochure or even request an appointment.
The model features a brick facade accented with James Hardie fiber cement siding and a perfect front porch from which you can hail the neighbors to join you for a glass of iced tea.
From the covered front porch, one enters the home and immediately on your right, you find a room which you can designate either as bedroom, a formal living room or an office. Take note of the five-inch deep moulding which is standard in Cresswind homes.
Continuing forward, on your right, you can enter the second bedroom, or the powder room or opposite it, enter a hallway leading into the kitchen. Off the hallway is a spacious and convenient laundry area.
The main living area, which is flooded with natural light, is in the heart of the home. From here, you can view all the amazing features of this residence. Notice how all the public spaces open onto the living area. What a great flow this floorplan has!
Entertaining your family at the holidays is easy in The Hickory with its separate, generous dining room. And don’t miss the butler’s pantry which is steps off both the kitchen and the dining room.
Designed to give you both indoor and outdoor living at its best, the sun room will be one of your favorite places to enjoy your leisure time. In the model, the open lanai is constructed as an open sun room (one of the plan’s options.)
When touring the Hickory model at Cresswind Charleston, one of the first things you appreciate is the spacious feeling. This is a home perfect for you and your guests. With a gigantic kitchen island, you’ll be able to interact while cooking and prepping meals.
This well-planned kitchen gives you the benefit of extensive storage space as well as a breakfast nook adjacent to it. Gorgeous glass backsplash tile in the model gives you exciting contrast with the creamy, white granite countertops.
The gracious owner’s suite is so luxurious that you’ll feel like you’re in a five-star hotel. Separated from the living area by French doors, it is tucked in at the rear of the home with windows on two walls, ensuring lots of natural light. The tray ceiling and the full-length windows with complete trim package bespeak touches of distinction which makes homes in Cresswind Charleston exceptional.
The owner’s suite includes double sinks and separate water closet. With options for an oversized walk-in shower or shower and separate bath, you can customize your spa-like retreat precisely to your taste.
