Riverview at Dunes West Model Home Village Debuts with Latest Design Features

3 Luxury Appointed Homes Reflect Lowcountry Lifestyle on Wando River 
Mt. Pleasant, S.C. (June 6, 2017) —John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods is celebrating the completion of three fully furnished, designer-decorated model homes at Riverview in Dunes West with a public first look June 10.
The Model Home Village offers the latest inspiration for luxury living, from welcoming double front porches, backyard fire pits, statement kitchen islands and shiplap-accented loft space. Each features exceptional architectural details inside and out and upgrades from the exclusive new home design studio.
“Within each home we feature a palette of possibilities — from coastal, to classic and a bit of contemporary as well,” said Wendy Schart, sales manager for John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods. “This is an exciting time to build a home in this one-of-a-kind community. It’s been our experience that buyers are thrilled to be able to touch and visualize the space before the building process begins.”
In late January, John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods released 33 home sites in the first phase of this new community, including some with water views and priced from $497,900 to $1,000,000+. When completed, Riverview will accommodate 116 single-family homes and 23 low maintenance townhomes, all within the larger vibrant and upscale Dunes West community.
The Mercer
At 3,898 square feet, the five bedroom five bath home offers plenty of room for rest and relaxation and attention-grabbing features that include a modern tile accent wall in the dining room, a stone fireplace and stunning waterfall island in the gourmet kitchen. A luxurious owner’s suite, with two roomy closets, an oversized shower and a free-standing tub are found upstairs.
One of the homes in the Manor Collection and beginning at $591,500, the Mercer’s indoor space transitions easily into alfresco dining by stepping into the screened-in porch outfitted with its own kitchen and fireplace.
“The neighborhood, with its manicured ponds, pocket parks and Lowcountry wetlands, beckons you to enjoy the outdoors,” said Schart.  “But when the weather isn’t agreeable, it’s easy to take the party upstairs to the roomy wet bar loft area on the third floor.”
The Carter 
With four bedrooms and four baths, this 3,075 square-foot home greets neighbors with double front porches. A huge gourmet island kitchen, butler’s pantry, café eating area and fireside gathering room comprise the heart of the home, with a beginning price of $595,500. The spacious open design has a direct connection to the outdoor deck and screened porch, perfect for marsh or water views.
Upstairs, the owner’s suite is comfortably set apart with a large spa and its own outdoor deck and screened porch, ideal for a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine. A central loft accented with shiplap gives the flexible space a rustic and charming vibe. A convenient second floor laundry makes everyday chores simpler.
All homes in this Collection feature drive-under garages.
The Lanier
Smaller in size, but big on luxury with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, the Lanier starts at 2,875 square feet. The Classic Collection open floor plan boasts a first floor owner’s suite with an option for an additional suite on the second level and begins at $481,700.
The statement high-functioning kitchen is bold and beautiful. Combined with the dining and great rooms, it’s a gracious and inviting space that opens to a screened-in porch and a backyard fire pit. A first floor study is perfectly suited for an office or library and an upstairs bonus room sits alongside the additional bedroom and second owner’s suite.
The John Wieland Home Design Studio ensures that every Riverview home benefits from a personal approach, where buyers can select finishing touches with help from a design consultant. All new homes also are backed by the industry leading John Wieland Warranty.
