Who doesn’t love to browse real estate brochures and dream about moving into a brand-new home? One builder transforms dreams into reality in its East Cooper communities with its D.R. Horton and Emerald brands. Founded in Fort Worth by Donald R. Horton in 1978, D.R. Horton, Inc. is now a publicly traded company operating in 29 states and continuing Horton’s objective of constructing high-quality, affordable homes, with a focus on design and craftmanship. Builder Magazine has ranked D.R. Horton as the No. 1 home builder, based on closings, since 2002. Mount Pleasant Magazine’s readers named D.R. Horton Best Volume Builder 2019.
D.R. Horton constructs new homes in Oyster Point, Park West and at The Bridges of Seven Lakes in nearby Huger. According to Bryan Doster, the company’s city manager, “Our livable floor plans cater to every stage of life.”
Especially attractive to nature lovers and history buffs, oak-studded Oyster Point is approached by Six Mile Road and overlooks scenic Gray Bay and Hamlin Sound. D.R. Horton placed a conservation easement on the nature trails that lead to Fort Palmetto, a Civil War battery the builder donated to the town of Mount Pleasant. Just a few miles from the beach, the community features a clubhouse that includes a kitchen, meeting rooms and fitness center, as well as an outdoor pavilion, a playground, a zero-entry pool and an extensive community dock. Floor plans for single-family homes and town homes at Oyster Point offer gourmet kitchens, first-floor guest suites, oversized walk-in closets and drive-under garages.
D.R. Horton’s Center Park North at Park West and Center Park South Townhomes at Park West neighborhoods are part of Park West’s master-planned community and are located a short drive from shopping, Roper St. Francis Mount Pleasant Hospital and Wando High School, as well as Wando Mount Pleasant Public Library, scheduled to open soon. Amenities include walking trails, pools, tennis courts, a playground, a clubhouse and a crabbing dock.
The two-story attached single-family homes located at Center Park North boast open living spaces, high ceilings, stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops. In addition to gourmet kitchens, town homes at Central Park South feature large bonus rooms and walk-in closets.
“Center Park South Townhomes include landscape maintenance, and we are currently offering a one-year landscape maintenance (contract) in Center Park North,” Doster said.
Located next to the Francis Marion National Forest, The Bridges at Seven Lakes delivers enviable amenities that include a 65-acre lake, swimming pool, pavilion, pickleball court, fire pit, woodland paths, oyster tables, activity area and a kayak launch area. Both one- and two-story single-family homes are available and offer features such as hardwood floors and tankless water heaters.
“Every new home buyer has the opportunity to personalize the layout and design selections of their new home depending on the stage of construction,” Doster said.
D.R. Horton homes come with home warranties as well as smart-home and energy-efficient features. Smarthome features include keyless entry, smart video doorbells, Eaton Z-Wave switch, Honeywell Z-Wave thermostat and Amazon Echo and Echo Dot.
D.R. Horton offers additional home-buyer services through its mortgage financing, insurance and title services subsidiaries.
