Felder Creek, a Wholesome Neighborhood in a Quiet Country Setting
By Ron Sirisky
The Felder Creek neighborhood is located approximately five miles north of Summerville, S.C., less than a mile from the I-26 Jedburg Exit 194. This quiet community rests comfortably on a 37.6-acre tract and is bordered by pine forests and the Felder Branch wetlands. The area is a rich natural habitat for great egrets, blue herons and white ibis. Scheduled to open in July of 2005, the first of three phases currently under development will offer 125 home sites ranging from .15 to .37 acres. House/lot prices will range from around $130,000 to approximately $190,000 and with smartly designed floor plans accommodating from 1,300 to 1,900 square feet. Only a few minutes outside of the town of Jedburg in Berkley County, this beautiful neighborhood will have curbed and guttered streetscapes, as well as city water and sewer service.
Home construction in Felder Creek will be true to the Jessco Homes philosophy of providing high quality features as a standard entree, while maintaining very reasonable price points. Homebuyers can choose from a generous selection of home plans with a tasteful variety of neo-traditional elevations. The flexibility of arranging your floor plan on the established footprint to better suit your personal taste is also available with the professional help of Jessco’s in-house designer.
The classic home exteriors will incorporate brick fronts with a stone address number (a Jessco hallmark) and premium vinyl siding and thermal paned windows for low maintenance. Each home’s front lawn will be sodded up to 1,500 square feet and generously planted with shrubs and bedding plants. Backyards will be seeded. Homes will also feature a 10’x12’ concrete patio for outdoor barbecuing which will vary according to each homeowner’s house plan. The spacious interiors of each house have many features included in their base package that are considered upgrades with other builders. To mention a few, you can expect ceiling fans in the master bedroom and great room, overhead lights in the bedrooms and a two-color paint scheme throughout. Kitchens will include a built-in microwave over the top of a smooth-top/self cleaning range. A Maytag dishwasher, oak or white paneled cabinets, stainless steel sinks and a food disposal with sound shields are all part of the standard package. Of course, there are many more extras that come with a Jessco Home, adding significantly to the value of one’s home purchase. Also included are the one-year builder warranty, 10-year insurance-backed structural defect coverage, and two-year systems
Felder Creek is the ideal location for those who want to live in a wholesome neighborhood in a quiet and tranquil country setting, but want the convenience of being near “civilization.” The beautiful and friendly town of Summerville is only about a 15-minute drive from your front door and offers wonderful shopping, a host of recreational and entertainment venues and a wide variety of great restaurants. The expansive modern medical facilities of Trident Medical Center is also only minutes away, as is the campus of Charleston Southern University.
