It seems we are all just a little bit nostalgic for the past when neighborhoods were tight-knit, there were neighborhood block parties, and everyone looked out for each other’s kids. Developers are taking note. Massey, a new development out Doby’s Bridge Rd in Fort Mill, is full of side-walk lined streets, neighborhood gathering areas, and family oriented amenities and is the perfect neighborhood for those who want to feel connected to their neighbors and involved in the community.
There are currently 2 builders building in Massey, Ryan Homes and David Weekley Homes. Building had stalled at Massey for several years because the development went into foreclosure during the housing crisis. Now that both Ryland and Massey have built and opened Model Homes, Massey’s future looks bright.
Currently Ryan Homes is offering homes up to 5 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths from the 190s to the upper 280s. Ryan’s homes are Energy Star certified, resulting in up to 30% lower utility costs. Average lot size for the Ryan Homes lots is around .16 acres.
The David Weekley Homes can be found in a section of Massey named The Estates of Massey. Lots in this section are a little larger, the model home sits on a .28 acre lot. Since its inception in 1976, David Weekley Homes has become the 3rd largest privately held home builder in the country and they offer thousands of custom choices.
The David Weekley Model features craftsman style architecture, a 3-car side load garage, granite countertops, and hardwood floors throughout the living areas. This home also has a large bonus room with full bath upstairs that could be used as a guest suite. David Weekley homes in Massey run in the 300s.
The amenities in Massey really can’t be beat with a 2-story clubhouse featuring a fitness center and 18-seat movie theater and a Junior Olympic size pool with lazy river water park and water slide.
