Hilton Head Custom Homes Summerland Model
Published on August 4, 2016

Last month, we had the privilege of attending Hampton Lake’s new Concept Home Collection during a late afternoon block party which attracted hundreds of guests which included buyers, brokers, and dignitaries. Attendees had a chance to tour six new model homes built by the finest Bluffton home builders which included Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Coastal Signature Homes, Hilton Head Custom Homes, Jacoby & Sons, Randy Jeffcoat Builders, and Shoreline Construction. The homes featured spacious open floor plans, large windows bringing the outdoors in with views of the lake and the latest energy efficient products. 

Hampton Lake offers superb waterfront living on its private 182 fresh water lake stocked with fish. Folks exploring the best places to live in South Carolina should consider the natural beauty and good life in Bluffton. The Lowcountry town just north of Savannah sits sublimely along the banks of the May River just west of Hilton Head Island. With its Old Town Bluffton district and natural views, the town has been called "the last true coastal village of the South” because of the food scene, art infusion and friendly people all around.
