Ned Beck, director of marketing for the South Carolina Division of KB Home, is enthusiastic about the wooded home sites and the walking trails throughout the neighborhood.

“Where else can you find so much home for so little price?” he asks, adding that Blackberry Creek is an appealing community for a broad spectrum of buyers.

Three model homes—Hurst, Malvern and Oglethorpe—and on-site, and virtual tours of the other 10 are available on the KB Home Carolina web site. Sales counselor Suzy Whitman explains that “Some of the homes have stone, which gives them a cottage feel, but are traditional in style.” The neighborhood is tucked away and much of the trees and natural landscape have been preserved,” she adds.

This quaint subdivision offers many amenities, such as walk-in closets, Whirlpool appliances, Delta faucets, architectural shingles, smooth ceilings, marble vanities and other options, depending on which floor plan you choose. Ponds and common open spaces will help perpetuate Summerville’s reputation for Southern living.
