Centex has re-opened to begin its newest, and final, phase in Rice Field at Carolina Bay. There will be 170 homesites in this community that offers brand new homes within 10 miles of the peninsula—under $300k. Rice Field is conveniently located off Savannah Highway (Hwy 17S) in Charleston’s West Ashley area, yet tucked remotely from the road to ensure a private, quiet neighborhood.
Centex, a division of Pulte Homes is a favorite for first-time homebuyers as well as retirees. Where first-time buyers appreciate the affordable pricing, retirees enjoy Rice Field’s 1-story floorplan, The Compton, and various plans with first-floor owner’s suites. There are six floorplans in all to choose from. The Compton features 3 to 5 bedrooms, 2 to 4 bathrooms, and is approx. 1913 SF. Homebuyers have the option to add a bonus loft or second-floor bedroom and bath in this plan that offers plenty of storage with walk-in closets in each bedroom. The Compton starts from $246,990 and you can tour this plan firsthand, along with The Hampton. The Hampton is a 2-story plan with 3 to 4 bedrooms, 4 to 5 bathrooms and 2.5 to 3 bathrooms. It is approx. 2602 SF with prices starting from $261,990. This model features a flex space in the front of the home that can be used as an optional office, sitting room or any other space of your choosing. The Hampton also offers an open first floor with a center kitchen island and a second-floor loft.
There is a three-acre park located in the middle of Carolina Bay for all residents to enjoy, along with a dog park, biking and jogging trails. This new phase will also feature an amenity center with a swimming pool, gazebo and playground coming late 2016. You’ll never have to leave home!
