After a successful grand opening in February and with spring seemingly in the air, the Sun City team says it’s a great time to tour the new models for fresh ideas. From luxury quartz countertops, spacious zero-entry tile showers and a medley of rich cabinetry choices and colors, fashion-forward design meets chic convenience in each of the new model homes.
“Gone are the days of few choices,” said General Sales Manager Carter Faucette. “These new features are breathtaking and functional while allowing homebuyers to touch and visualize the space before the building process begins.”
With about 7,900 households, the Del Webb community has showcased several model home parks since opening in 1995, she said, adding that residents enjoy coming in to ooh and aah at the latest and greatest in home design.
“It’s an exciting time for homebuyers, and with all the new choices we’ve added, it’s never been easier to deeply personalize a new Sun City home,” Faucette said.
Here are her top picks for what’s new to view in the six model homes located at the Sun City Welcome Center, 138 Kings Creek Drive, Bluffton, S.C.
High functioning kitchens
Bold and beautiful quartz island countertops atop gray cabinetry elevate informal dining to new heights. Homebuyers can now choose from a dozen new cabinet colors and styles and accessorize with knobs, drawer pulls and self-closing drawers.
Gigantic — yes gigantic — zero-entry luxury showers with over-sized tiles and rainfall shower heads are making a splash for the first time.
For a striking entrance, deep rich chocolate or stormy gray wood flooring continues to evolve, along with easy-to-maintain plank tiles disguised as hardwood. Or choose durable and scratch resistant laminate floors for the same wood look and feel when on a budget.
Timeless and Contemporary
When blended with driftwood-hued walls, creamy winter white cabinetry and 3”x 6” subway tiles add a bit of nostalgia to the kitchen or bath, while also resisting stains.
Lighter and Brighter
Sliding glass doors defined mid-century modern 50 years ago, but the latest trend calls for “cascading” panes, said Faucette, measuring as wide as 12 feet while creating more uninterrupted indoor-outdoor living space with the sunroom or screened-in porch.
New model home exteriors provide a Low Country design, available with stone or brick accents and stylish new color schemes, including blues and grays and shades of taupe and beige.
