Ride with The Guide: Featured Model Home
Model homes are designed to show homebuyers what new homes in a community offer, to let them see options, and to showcase the builder’s craftsmanship. Each month, The Guide will take you on a highlight tour of a featured model home in a Charleston-area community. If you like what you see, we encourage you to stop by and get a full on-site tour. This month The Guide is featuring Centex’s newest model home, The Hampton, at Laurel Glen at Oakfield on Johns Island, S.C. This 2622+ square-foot plan can be built with 4-5 bedrooms and 2-3 baths, priced from $266,990.
Centex Homes has always been known for exceeding homeowner expectations. Their newest model home in the master-planned community of Oakfield reflects this legendary homebuilder’s buyer-centered philosophy in every room.
As you drive up, you’ll be glad to see the two-car garage and inviting front porch that are on your wish list. Step inside, and you can immediately see your family living here. The foyer of this option-enhanced Hampton plan welcomes you with classic wainscoting and lots of natural light. Just inside the front door is some great flex space with double French doors, ideal for a home office or study. Take a few more steps, and the entire main living area opens up to create the perfect living and entertaining space.
Imagine just how easy it will be for your kids to grab a seat and eat breakfast at the kitchen’s raised bar. As you cook dinner, they can do homework at the long built-in desk opposite the kitchen. With no walls to separate the family room, parents can keep an eye on little ones -- as well as on the TV mounted in the open-concept great room. Centex even thought to tuck a gas fireplace in the corner to maximize furniture space. Just beyond the kitchen, a wide-open dining area beckons, ready to welcome six to eight dinner guests. You can even opt for a light-filled sunroom or screened porch to expand the space farther, or add a first-floor guest room and bath that can double as a playroom. The options are endless.
Upstairs, there’s built-in privacy. “Buyers especially like the fact that the owner’s suite doesn’t share walls with the other bedrooms. If someone works 3rd shift, such as a nurse or police officer, they have quiet for sleeping even when the rest of the family is up,” said Centex Sales Consultant Amy Burnette. “The spacious loft functions as a 2nd living room, ideal for family movie nights, or for times you want the kids playing upstairs while the adults relax downstairs.”
The entire Oakfield community is every bit as lifestyle-friendly as Centex’s model. Home sites back up to wetlands, parks and ponds, and homeowners will also enjoy additional future amenities such as a community swimming pool, pavilion, playgrounds and walking trails. Laurel Glen is mere minutes from some of the area’s most treasured restaurants, as well as the laid-back beaches of Johns Island. It’s also a short drive from Downtown Charleston and has easy access to Maybank Highway and River Road.
We invite you to visit this incredible model home in person.
