The Amazing Amenities at Nexton

The Amazing Amenities at Nexton

When it comes to searching for your next home, Homes By Dickerson understands that there are a lot of important factors that go into your decision. A lot of your decisions may be based on what is within the home. With us, you can be sure our homes are equipped with energy-efficient and smart home features as well as high-end, luxury finishes and details. But aside from what is on the inside, we know that what is on the outside is just as important. That is why we build homes in communities located in prime areas with plenty of amenities to enjoy.

Today, we’d like to put a spotlight on the amazing amenities of one of the master-planned communities we build in, Nexton. Here, you’ll feel inspired to get moving, explore nature, have work/life balance, and build your healthiest life. Let’s take a look at how!

 

The Midtown Club

Think of Midtown Club as the community’s major hot spot for all things fit, fun, and friendly.

Fit

For fitness, you will find an array of options to keep your heart pumping and healthy. The Midtown Club Gym hosts a studio with cardio, circuit, and weight training equipment. It is large enough for yoga and fitness classes, with a window to keep an eye on the kids and bring in natural sunlight. There are lighted pickleball and tennis courts available for friendly matches during the day or night. But if you prefer a field sport, a large lawn is available for other games like soccer and flag football. Included in the pool is a lap section, perfect for staying active on a particularly hot day.

Fun

Although exercising can be fun, there are a few club areas specifically designed to enjoy some entertaining activities. The resort-style lagoon pool is fun on its own but also features fun zones and squirt jets for the kids. Also, for kids and kids at heart, it has a playground with an inventive play structure for climbing. For the adults to enjoy, there is the abundant deck area around the pool with sunny and shady seating options, plus zen areas with benches, a burbling kettle fountain, and the serenity of shade trees and lush native plantings.

Friendly

The Midtown Club also keeps community connectivity in mind with amenities for building friendships with neighbors. On the event lawn, you can meet up with new neighbors for a bite from local food trucks and enjoy movie nights. For productive days, the living room area has gigabit WiFi and fresh coffee. Or you can spend time getting to know your neighbors on the cushy furniture, enjoying happy hour at the catering kitchen.

The Swim Club

This amenity is more than just a pool and pavilion. This amenity has options for year-round fun. The competition pool is 25-meters long, so whether you want to exercise, train, or challenge a neighbor to a friendly race, it is competition ready. Kids can swim and play alongside their parents on the interactive splash pad. When you are ready to relax and escape the heat, the deck is filled with plenty of shady seating. On a mild summer day, the large lawn area is great for a competitive volleyball game or a pleasant family picnic. When it gets cooler, you can cozy up to a large fire pit with some good friends and hot cocoa. No matter the weather, there is so much to enjoy at the Swim Club.

Miles of Parks & Trails

One of the most spectacular amenities in Nexton is the ample parks and trails. Almost half of the community is dedicated to parks, natural open spaces, and a network of paved paths and rugged trails. With 46 different locations to choose from, you will never have to worry about your walking or biking routine becoming boring. Each has their own unique designs and features with a variety of mature, locally grown trees, shrubs, and flowering plants throughout. Some features include live concerts and shows, waterways with distinct bird species, vast green lawns, and a few hidden treasures you’ll want to come see firsthand.

Nexton is an ideal community, full of all of these amenities and more. Located in the Charleston suburb of Summerville, NC, it’s the epitome of the perfect live, work, play community. If you loved learning about all of the wonderful things to do within the community, we can’t wait to show you the amazing homes that we at Homes By Dickerson build there! You can get a head start by visiting us online, or contacting our new home sales consultant at 843-466-4875.

Top Things to Do in Pinehurst

Top Things to Do in Pinehurst

Homes By Dickerson prides itself on choosing the most desirable, scenic and distinctive locations for our new home communities. One of our newest communities, Hollycrest, will be coming soon to Pinehurst, North Carolina

 

While the name Pinehurst evokes one of the world’s most famous golf courses, The Village of Pinehurst is home to more than just the iconic resort. Named for its abundance of towering pine trees, Pinehurst is located in central North Carolina and is known for its rich history and southern hospitality.

 

Here are some of the top things to experience when you move to Hollycrest in Pinehurst, NC.

 

  • Golf, golf, and more golf. The Pinehurst Resort is home to 9 golf courses! It’s not known as the “cradle of American golf” for nothing. With designs dating from 1901 through 2018, you’ll find courses that fit a variety of styles and skill levels.   

 

  • Take a spa day. The Spa at Pinehurst is designed to convey tranquility at every turn. Whether you take a dip in the pool, enjoy a facial or body wrap, or unwind with a massage, you’ll feel relaxed and rejuvenated from head to toe.  

 

  • 3 words: horse drawn carriage. Yes, you can explore the charming Village of Pinehurst from the point of view of a carriage. The town, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, suggests a New England-style village with winding paths and historic homes. It’s delightful. 

 

  • Speaking of The Village.  Founded in 1895 – before the golf course – The Village of Pinehurst was envisioned as a health resort, with tons of sunshine and clean, pine-scented air. Now, it is a quaint town with unique shops, boutiques, and restaurants, along with an arboretum and miles of walking trails. 

 

  • Summer Fun. Every year, there are so many concerts, theatrical performances, equestrian events, street festivals, and antique fairs in the Pinehurst area. During the summer, you might choose from Shakespeare in the Pines, Independence Day festivities, or the Live After 5 concert series.

Now Selling: Inspired New Homes in Chatham Park

Some homes are built out of necessity, and some are crafted from pure inspiration. Homes By Dickerson is thrilled to announce that The Vineyards, the remarkable new neighborhood within the master-planned community Chatham Park in Pittsboro, NC, is now selling!

 

Pittsboro – The Small Town with Big Opportunities

The picturesque town of Pittsboro, NC is close to everywhere you need to be, but far enough away to enjoy the beauty and charm of the North Carolina countryside. Located just 30 minutes from Chapel Hill and 40 minutes from downtown Raleigh, getting to Research Triangle Park and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport is easy, especially since Pittsboro is known for its low commute times. Though the population is growing by leaps and bounds (Chatham County, where Pittsboro is located, is the fastest-growing county in the state), it’s still relatively small by Raleigh metro standards, so residents get to enjoy fewer crowds and more outdoor and leisure time.
