#RidewithTheGuide: Featured Model Home
This month The Guide visits Southeastern Family Homes’ semi-custom Waterview model home in idyllic new home community of Whitney Lake on Johns Island. First impressions are important and Southeastern Family Homes model does not disappoint.
Thoughtfully designed the Waterview floorplan offers traditional two-story living with the convenience of a first-floor master suite. At 2,198 square feet, this floorplan has the option for four bedrooms or three bedrooms and a loft space. The ability to customize this floorplan, like all their floorplans, is a huge advantage Southeastern Family Homes is proud to offer their homebuyers. They also offer an impressive list of “upgraded” features that come standard as part of the home’s base price which is from $307,000 on a non-waterfront lot.
According to Thomas Wingard, on-site sales for Southeastern Family Homes, it is not uncommon for him while sitting down with prospective home buyers to take out a sketch pad and start drawing ideas on how Southeastern Family Homes can make changes to their existing plans. Their goal is to fit the buyer’s needs. This virtual 3-D floorplan helps you walk through this decorated Waterview model. This decorated model home price is $367,500.
Several stand-out features are this homes easy, livable flow from room to room. The kitchen is ideally located and sized. The first-floor master suite is smartly located at the back of the house. The split staircase is not only functionally more appealing, it is visually as well. The laundry room and back hall way connect to the covered breezeway to the detached garage allowing for a wonderful outdoor living scenario.
Another unique feature are Southeastern’s home’s foundations. While a foundation might not be the first thing that catches your eye when looking at new homes, it’s obviously the bedrock on which your new home will be constructed. While many builders construct homes on monolithic slabs that take less time and money to construct, Southeastern builds with stem-wall raised-slab slabs. Stem wall raised-slab foundations provide their buyers a higher elevation and a stronger foundation. Not only that, but they fill the entire stem will with solid concrete instead of filling only the sections containing rebar, which is the standard building practice. This is just one way in which a home constructed by Southeastern offers tremendous built-in value, particularly with home prices beginning in the upper $200s.
The Waterview model home is located at the corner of Valley Oak Road and Water Leaf Road |Johns Island SC 29455. To learn more please visit the Model Home, open daily, or call (843) 385-2494.
