The New York Times ran a story today stating that houses keep getting bigger even as families get smaller. New construction homes have more square footage, more bedrooms, and more bathrooms than they did in 1980. However, the average size of a household has shrunk to 2.58 people.
Chapel Cove in Lake Wylie is a fantastic master planned new construction community where you can get a larger home you desire with all of the features you want.
Homes in Chapel Cove start in the $200’s and range all the way up to the $800’s or more with custom features. Arranged by developer Crescent Communities, Builders include Pulte Homes, CalAtlantic Homes (formerly Standard Pacific Homes) and taylor morrison.
Homes range in size from 2509 square feet to over 4000 square feet. Features of the home depend on the builder but can include gourmet kitchens, outdoor living spaces, luxury bathrooms, private lake access and more.
Amenities include a multi-use club room with kitchen for community events, cardio and strength fitness room with after-hours access, swimming pool with children’s splash area and adult gathering area, tennis, basketball and pickleball courts, multiple gathering and lounge areas around the pool deck, hard and soft surface trails around the amenity center, canoe and kayak launch and an activity lawn.
