Whispering Oaks, a maintenance-free townhome community in Mauldin by Great Southern Homes, has completed its model home and is now open to the public.
Twenty townhomes were built previously by another builder. Great Southern Homes plans to add 39 more for a total of 59 units in the community. Each 2,200-square-foot townhome will feature four bedrooms (master on the main level), three and a half baths, and a loft with community green spaces. Prices are in the $160,000s.
“Great Southern Homes is building the homes people of the Upstate desire – well-built, with features they want, and the smart and green technology that saves them money,” said Erika DeRoberts, director of developer relations at Coldwell Banker Caine, which is handling sales for the community. “The homes are open and well-designed, with the lifestyle and comfortable budget of today’s buyers in mind.”
Great Southern Homes is a family-owned company founded by Michael P. Nieri, a Clemson University graduate who has been building homes for more than 20 years. The company has more than 50 communities across the Upstate. Every home is built under their Green Smart Home program combining energy efficiency with home automation technology.
Great Southern Homes has two additional neighborhoods under construction in Fountain Inn. Tucker Branch has a decorated model now open and features single-family homes with sidewalks and green spaces. Home prices begin in the high $170,000s. Fountainbrook consists of single-family homes with a community pool, with a new phase set for release in the second quarter of 2016.
