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.

Fitness club in Nexton, located in Summerville, SC.


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.


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.


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

Park trails in Nexton located in Summerville, SC

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!

Parade of Homes Floor Plans Sneak Peek

Parade of Homes Floor Plans Sneak Peek

It is that time of year again, and we cannot wait to show you what we have planned. No, it is not the anticipated holidays, it is the Parade of Homes! Each year in October, our dedicated team works tirelessly to showcase some of the best and boldest home designs. And this year is no exception. Homes By Dickerson is here to take it up a notch with an exciting new collection of homes… with character. 

Our theme this year is built around homes with character. For each home, we created a fictional character and a story to represent them living their romanticized lives within them. Take a look!

Lagniappe Rosé in Chatham Park

This beautiful Cooper plan embodies 2,029 square feet of living space with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Inspired by the historic scenery of New Orleans and its southern charm, this home will be designed to the nines. Step into a long foyer to find the glorious kitchen with a waterfall island. Then, explore the primary bath with a zero-entry design and linear shower drain. In this home, you will feel as if you have walked into a southern dream where you can sip iced tea on the covered front porch and then glide through the sliding glass doors to the screened back porch. It is the perfect mix of historic and modern touches.

The story of Lagniappe Rosé invites you to meet Valeria Lucentio. She is an accomplished jazz band musician who falls in love easily. If you are lucky, she will play you a song on the guitar and write a letter that romances you.

Maison Des Fleur in 751 South

The Willow floor plan found in this year’s Parade of Homes will have you traveling to a charming English countryside village. With 7 bedrooms and 5 and a half bathrooms spanning across 3,300 square feet, this home is the quintessential dream home for growing families and avid entertainers. The additional living unit above the 2-car garage is ideal for adult children visiting from college or relatives coming to spend a long weekend. It boasts a beautiful view of the future family garden. Additional features like the fireplace with pre-cast concrete and the creative craft room are special highlights of this home.

While looking out the window at the view of the garden, you will find our Maison Des Fleur character planting flowers with her family. Eight-year-old Sadie Brown loves helping her family with the garden. Along with her twin brother and parents, she lives with her sweet grandmother, who enjoys a spot of tea in her in-law suite.

Grand Vin in Wendell Falls

As the name suggests, the Grand Vin parade home is inspired by Napa Valley’s modern wineries. There are a ton of features to love in this customized Bristol floor plan. Firstly, you will find not one, but two cozy fireplaces. One inside the home and one outside. Secondly, before going up the stairs, there is a quaint dog kennel for the favored furry friend in the family. Thirdly, barrel vault ceilings can be found over the wet bar and in the butler’s pantry. Come to the Parade of Homes event to see even more fun features of this home with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 2,930 square feet of living space.

Doctor Talia Stoll is the relatable character of Grand Vin. While she loved her life in Sonoma Valley, CA, she could not help but feel drawn to the sweet southern atmosphere of NC. Missing her family, you can find her in the craft room putting together a package for her niece.

Treelight Chic Townhome in Wendell Falls

In this collection of parade homes, we cannot forget our wonderful luxury townhomes. Nothing says “healthy, active lifestyle” like a townhome surrounded by walkable conveniences. But after a long day, it is nice to come home to a relaxing retreat in a chic styled home. This Park Ave floor plan has plenty of room for entertaining and a 2-car garage with ample storage. Throughout the 2,282 square feet of living space, you will find 3 bedrooms and 3 and a half bathrooms. The 10-foot ceilings create an open, airy feel in the large living, kitchen, and dining room areas. The second floor provides access to an uncovered rear deck where you can relax and take in the fresh air.

In this townhome, the story of Sofia Gonzales comes to life. By day she is a journalist and editor, but by night she is either reading or listening to some good music. She loves her private life here with just her and her Yorkie. However, tonight she is headed to Treelight Square to prepare for her dinner party!

These are just a few of the details of our Parade of Homes floor plans and their unique character stories. If you are impressed now, just wait until you see the full designs that complement their layout. Ready to save the date on your calendar or view models that are just as special?

Meet Our New Lender Partner

Meet Our New Lender Partner

So often in the home buying process, the financial details seem to be an afterthought – especially when it comes to choosing a lender. But at Homes By Dickerson, we believe that you deserve to navigate the mortgage process with the same confidence and ease you experience in your home buying process. 


This is why we are so thrilled to offer you the expertise of our new Mortgage Partner, Twin State Lending. This is a company that shares our dedication to luxury customer service. With Twin State Lending, you will find a trustworthy mortgage professional that offers top notch service and extensive guidance to meet your unique financing needs. 


Through this partnership, our homebuyers will enjoy the flexibility, convenience and ease of working with a trusted partner. Plus, you’ll appreciate quicker, more efficient processes since Twin State Lending is the exclusive Homes By Dickerson Lender. Plus, we will be able to offer extremely competitive rates with rate buy-downs, and more.


Our experienced Mortgage Loan Originator, Kevin Dail, will offer the same upscale experience you’ve come to love at Homes by Dickerson. A lifelong resident of the Triangle, Kevin has experience working with both large national banks and local community banks, cultivating his commitment to availability and tremendous service for his clients. 


After taking a break from banking to work in real estate development, and to operate an indoor athletic training facility for local youth, Kevin returned to banking, specifically the mortgage industry. For the last seven years, most recently as a preferred lender for a large regional builder, he has used his diverse banking, entrepreneurial spirit, and personal approach to help potential buyers achieve their dream of home ownership. Kevin enjoys golfing, watching and coaching baseball, and spending time with his wife and two kids.


We can’t wait for you to meet Kevin, and experience the smooth and seamless approach he and Twin State Lending bring to your homebuying process at Homes By Dickerson. 



If you are in the market for a new home or have been watching the news, you are aware of the volatility in mortgage rates right now. In short: The Federal Reserve is hiking the fed rate up to battle rising inflation. (June 2022 experienced a hike of 75 basis points.) 


These hikes will continue until inflation starts to decrease. Any time this happens, it causes a bit of chaos in the markets. Mortgage rates are increasing as the rate hike makes it more expensive to finance goods (i.e. home, car, appliances, credit cards, etc). All of this uncertainty may give buyers in the market pause. In some cases, it can price them out of homeownership entirely. 


What we have to remember is this: Mortgage rates always have and always will fluctuate based on markets and the economy. The average refinancing cycle is every 2-3 years. Historically, that means rates will go up and down. If you purchased a mortgage at a peak rate, then you can refinance into a new lower rate when the rates lower.  


If a traditional mortgage is out of reach right now, there are now other options on the table. We are seeing 7-10-year ARM mortgages make a come back. (ARM stands for adjustable rate mortgage.) This means you buy in at a lower rate now, and the rate will go up (based on the current market rate) in the designated time frame (7 or 10 years, whichever you purchase). If you choose an ARM, you will most likely get to refinance down to a lower fixed rate before that time passes, based on the historical 2-3 year mortgage cycle.   


Even in this unpredictable rate environment, it’s still a good time to make a move. Remember, while you can maneuver around rates, you can never replace land and location. If you find the community, homesite or home of your dreams, don’t wait to act. This opportunity may not come around again, and you deserve to enjoy your life to the fullest.


Homes By Dickerson is so excited to partner with Twin State Lending because we are able to offer our homebuyers some very aggressive rates and programs in this new rate environment. Currently, we are offering options ranging from 14-month mortgage rate locks to fixed rate buy-down options. Please talk with one of our onsite new home consultants or our preferred lender for more details.

How to Choose the Right Floor Plan for Your Family

How to Choose the Right Floor Plan for Your Family

One of the most exciting times in your life can be deciding to build a new construction home. Here at Homes By Dickerson, we know that finding the “Home of Your Life” begins with choosing the right floor plan.

Which floor plan you choose depends on how you use your home and how it fits with your lifestyle. From the size and shape, to where the rooms are located in relation to each other, every part of the home can affect your living experience, so knowing what you really want is crucial. 

Here are five tips for choosing the right floorplan for your new home:


Figure out what size home will best suit your needs

Choosing a floor plan should start with how you envision living in your new home, what type of layout works best, and how you would use each space. Though important, square footage should be your secondary consideration. Instead, focus on how many sleeping spaces do you need? Could a guest room double as an office or home gym if it won’t be used often? Do you need a certain amount of storage space? Prioritize your most important needs by thinking about your current space and what you need or don’t need in terms of rooms.


Choose a floorplan based on your lifestyle 

Every family has their own style, so choosing a floorplan that meets your needs is essential. Do you need an office? Do the kids need a rec room? Do you like to exercise at home, rather than at the gym? Would you  prefer a multi-purpose flex space that can change as your family grows? Think about the space you need to be comfortable based on your daily activities.


Trust your instincts on what “feels” right when choosing a floorplan

You know when a space feels comfortable. Take these instincts into consideration when looking at different floorplans. For example, someone with children may want the primary bedroom to be close to the other bedrooms. Others may prefer the primary bedroom to be separated for quiet and privacy. 


Be honest about your needs and lifestyle

Preferred features in a home differ depending on what stage of life you are in. Before choosing a home design, ask yourself: 


  • Is your family situation changing, either growing or shrinking?
  • Will you need guest rooms for overnight visitors? 
  • What about dedicated living space for longer visits by parents or grandchildren? 
  • Are you approaching retirement? Should you choose a plan that’s better for aging in place? 
  • How do you entertain? Do you want formal spaces or more relaxed gathering rooms? 
  • Do you travel frequently and need a lock-and-leave lifestyle?

Don’t forget workspace or entertaining considerations

Are you working from home more these days, possibly even full-time? A dedicated office in a quiet part of the house is a necessity. Even better, an office with sound proofed walls and a door that locks! 

Do you have hobbies or special interests that might require special rooms to enjoy them? A wine room for your bottles of Napa Valley Chardonnay or Italian Barolo. A media room for special showings of your Akira Kurosawa films.  

  Do you need lots of attic or storage space to store your treasures? For example, the holiday decorations that seem to grow exponentially every year. Halloween, Christmas, 4th of July… Cinco de Mayo? (Really?) Or the model trains/Lego sets/doll houses that were supposed to be temporary. 

Do you want to be able to eat/live/entertain outdoors? A deck, patio, covered/screened porch is a must. Make sure there’s room for a dining table, and a conversation area. Then add a fireplace and an outdoor kitchen! 


Answering these questions honestly will ensure that you choose the right floor plan for your lifestyle now and into the future. If you need any guidance or suggestions, connect with our online sales associates!

Current Kitchen Design Trends

Current Kitchen Design Trends

The place where you enjoy your morning coffee, prepare evening meals, and hang out with your family, the kitchen really is “the heart of the home.” At Homes By Dickerson, we design all of our beautiful, modern, efficient kitchens to enhance your daily routine. Here are a few trending design features we’re seeing that will inspire you to turn your kitchen into your all-time dream space:

Full Height Granite or Quartz Backsplash 

Imagine the look of Italian marble but infinitely more durable and practical. In this application, granite or quartz runs from the countertops all the way to the ceiling, creating a seamless look. It adds sophistication and warmth to any kitchen. 

The Look of Black Marble  

There is something infinite about black marble. It’s been used in so many variations for eons – walls and floors, mantles and countertops. It’s instantly recognizable yet avante garde. The black marble “look” is easily and practically obtained via porcelain floor tile or quartz countertops. 

Wide Plank Floors 

Wide plank wood flooring adds instant charm and depth to any room. The unique grain and natural color variations of hardwoods are classics for a reason. Combine the warm tones of stained floors with a cooler hue for a more modern look. 

Warm Wood Cabinetry 

While white kitchens will always have a place in the design pantheon, there’s something inevitably comforting about wood cabinetry. These elegant maple cabinets feature a modern design and a clear stain/painted finish combo, giving them a contemporary yet familiar feel. 

Open Shelving 

Whether for storing everyday items or displaying decorative treasures, open shelving has been around for centuries. But if you’re thinking “country kitchen”, think again! In this case, open shelves enhanced with a dark tile background are a central feature in a contemporary kitchen with light and dark cabinets and a cozy feel. 

Brass or Brushed Gold Fixtures & Cabinet Hardware 

The current trend in brass & brushed gold is soft and sophisticated. When paired with a classic blue & white color palette, the effect is cool and timeless. 

Bold Use of Color & Patterns  

For decades, color was used only as an accent in kitchens. But recently, a bolder use of color has been trending. Cabinets in saturated tones. Countertops with striking hues. Tile backsplashes that are works of art. It’s a great way to add personality to the room you spend so much time in! 

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.

Reasons to Love Townhome Living

Reasons to Love Townhome Living

A townhome presents the ideal solution for a variety of homebuyers. First-time buyers and right-sizing empty nesters appreciate the low maintenance. The lock-and-leave aspect is one of the many reasons to love townhome living.

It feels like home.

A townhome is at least two levels of living, so it feels more like a home than a condo. You do not compromise on the square footage or features. You still have the beautiful kitchen, the spacious suite, the number of bathrooms you need, and possibly a garage.

You own the land…

While your lot is smaller than what might accompany a single-family home, you still own it. And your property tax is considerably smaller based on this size.

…but do not have to mow it.

Exterior maintenance is usually included in the townhome community’s HOA fee. You have the pleasure of your own outdoor space without the maintenance. Your HOA takes care of the mowing, weeding, and fertilizing.

Your HOA fee also covers your roof, siding, and driveway. You do not need to store all those tools for home repair, so use the space in your garage or basement for something more fun!

More affordable, spacious living

Townhomes often present a more enticing price point than single-family homes. Remember, you have a smaller lot, and you are sharing some walls with another homeowner. However, with today’s advances in construction, you do not hear them!

Safety in numbers

There is something to be said for proximity to your neighbors. Townhome community residents tend to look out for one another because they see each other more frequently. You build relationships through familiarity—with neighbors on either side of your townhome, across the street, at the pool or fitness center, and those you pass while walking around the community. It is like living in a small town where everyone looks out for one another. And when you need someone to keep an eye on your townhome while you are away, you will have helpful neighbors willing to pitch in.

The amenities are a plus

When you choose to buy a townhome, you also get the use of the community amenities—a swimming pool, fitness center, clubhouse, walking trails, and other advantages to living in a townhome community. Some master-planned communities, like Wendell Falls in Wendell, NC, Nexton in Summerville, SC, and The Brownstones at 751 South in Durham, NC, deliver an outstanding selection of amenities. These communities are like towns of their own, with shopping, dining, and other services embedded there.

Combine the luxuries of resort-style amenities with the convenience of a low-maintenance lifestyle and you have more time to reap the rewards of your smart choice! Leave the home care to the pros and enjoy recreation, hobbies, and all the things that make life more satisfying.

Homes By Dickerson builds townhomes and single-family homes, sometimes within the same community. We bring our curated designs, quality construction, and commitment to delivering a greater standard for service, features, and value. When you’re looking for a new construction townhome that checks off every item on your wish list, look at Homes By Dickerson. Our communities are growing in Raleigh-Durham and The Research Triangle; Pinehurst, NC, one of the finest golf regions in the country; and Charleston, SC, the jewel of the South. Connect with Homes By Dickerson to explore the benefits of townhome living.

All About Curb Appeal

All About Curb Appeal

What do you see when you envision your dream home? The exterior details—the home’s style, color, details, and landscaping—communicate a lot about it. Every homeowner wants their home to stand out from the others on the street—and in a good way. Achieving that is all about curb appeal. And research shows that a home with eye-catching curb appeal sells for about 7% more than those that are less attractive on the outside.

Whether you’re shopping for a new home or preparing to put yours on the market, Homes By Dickerson has some factors for gauging this important feature.

The proportions are right.

Have you ever looked at a home and felt there was something out of balance about it? Maybe there was a confusing use of architectural details that did not flow together. The front porch was too small, the front door too large, or the walkway just plain wrong. Possibly the roof lines seemed like someone did not think it through.

Look for proportionality in the home’s exterior design. The gables, siding, dormers, and details should achieve a balance that you can see and “feel”. When there are contrasting sidings, like wood and stone, one should not overwhelm the other.

You will probably sense the lack of good proportions before you can pinpoint it. Take the time to view how the details relate to one another.

Watch the windows.

The placement of windows on a home can be very telling. When they are done correctly, the home has ample windows with symmetrical placement. For example, if you have windows on one side of the front half of the home, there should be two windows on the opposite end. A builder can save money by omitting windows, so it is a telling sign if you see this flaw in the curb appeal.

Paint problems.

When you are looking at a home, the first thing you notice is the style. The second is the color. If the exterior paint color is unappealing to you, you probably will pass on the property to avoid the expense of repainting it.

If the home needs a paint job, you should wonder what other maintenance has been overlooked by the homeowner.

How does the garden grow?

You might be impressed with the curb appeal that comes with stunning gardens. It is beautiful now but ask yourself if you will be able to handle the upkeep. If not, the lovely view from the street will become an overgrown tangle of unsightly plants and weeds.

Look past the home.

You can find your dream home but if the neighbors are not quite as pristine, your curb appeal will have distinct limitations. When you stand back and take in the view of a home, look left, right, and across the street. Are the neighboring homes as visually enticing? Does the neighborhood have a Homeowner’s Association that governs curb appeal? This is an important consideration when deciding on where to invest in your next home.

The Homes By Dickerson solution

You have many choices when it comes to a home builder. In Raleigh, NC, and Charleston, SC, Homes By Dickerson stands out as the one who prefers to give our buyers something that others don’t: Choices. We work with each homebuyer to come up with a home that is the sum of your details, inside and out. When it is done, you don’t just have a Homes By Dickerson residence. It is completely personalized to you.

We curate the designs to start with architecture and features that buyers want, from townhomes to single-family homes, Modern Farmhouse to Contemporary to Coastal. Our floor plans begin the inspiration process. Together, you and Homes By Dickerson bring that vision “home”.
