Lakeside living at its best

SummerLake is a community for families looking for an engaging lifestyle as well as a new home with modern amenities in Lexington, SC. 

Nestled among the homes that provide features such as granite counter tops, fireplaces, lofts, gourmet kitchens and nine-foot ceilings, are incredible outdoor amenities that offer plenty for families and residents looking for an active and vibrant lifestyle. 

Residents can spend lazy summer afternoons soaking up the sun, splashing in the pristine pool or cooking out with family and friends at the lakeside clubhouse. They can walk down Swingset Lane for an afternoon of picnicking and playing at the nearby pocket park, or stroll along shaded, winding nature trails. They can go fishing in the fully stocked 15-acre lake.

SummerLake offers six different affordable house plans, all of which are hybrid efficient homes, which means less toxins, less allergens and lower utility costs. They have dual programmable thermostats, which makes setting the temperature as simple as touching a button on your cell phone.

Residents can choose among plans that include three-four bedrooms and a variety of other amenities, including walk-in closets, two-car garages, inviting master suites, gourmet eat-in kitchens, fireplaces, lofts and covered porches. The two-story homes range from 2,003-2,835 square feet and the base price of the homes are $214,900-$264,900.
