LAKE WYLIE — The welcome mat is out at one of Lake Wylies newest neighborhoods.
David Weekley Homes held a grand opening and ribbon cutting Thursday at its Cottages at The Landing model home with the Lake Wylie Chamber of Commerce.
Chamber president Susan Bromfield said she heard many positive comments about the home and development.
The homes are beautiful, well-built and a terrific addition to Lake Wylie, offering more new patio home options in the hub of Lake Wylie, she said.
Rinehart Realty Realtor and chamber member Mary Sieck also said everything she heard was positive.
I was very impressed by the construction and by how well appointed the house is in items like the crown molding, she said.
She believes the homeowner association fees, which will include irrigation installation, shrubbery and watering the yards, will be a big attraction for home buyers.
You really dont have to do anything outside, she said. This is really going to appeal to people and Charlotte commuters who dont want to spend a day doing their lawn. Its a lifestyles choice.
Preston Nowaski, company sales consultant, said there will be 25 single-family homes with 55-foot-wide homesites with rear-alley entrance to garages. Homes are priced from the low $200s to low $300s.
We have sold one home, two contingent sales, three homes under construction and a fourth starting in July, he said.
There are six plans available in one-story ranch or two-story designs with master bedrooms on the first floor ranging from 1,654 to 2,424 square feet, according to the company website.
Buyers can choose from one of three showcase homes or customize a floor plan to be constructed on an available homesite. Nowaski said interest is high and hasnt waned since construction began in mid-May when he said we cant get it started fast enough.
Weve had a steady stream of traffic, he said. Were excited about entering back into the community.
The Cottages is a return to Lake Wylie for the company. David Weekley built homes in The Landing a decade ago.
The model home, called The Gilchrist, is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1-6 p.m. Sunday, or by appointment.
