Community of the Week: The Villas at Nexton

Located within the master-planned community of Nexton, The Villas at Nexton community spans nearly 27 acres and offers 282 single-family rental homes, the first of its kind in the Charleston-metro region. Developed with a “new urbanism” style featuring sidewalks and pedestrian-friendly amenities, the cottage-style homes cater to young professionals, empty nesters and those transitioning to the Charleston area looking to rent instead of buy.

Currently 90% leased, the community features a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom cottages, each with its own private, fenced yard, as well as one-bedroom lofts and carriage units. The homes range from 650 to 1,350 square feet and rental rates start at $1,535 per month.

To create a true neighborhood feel and unique lifestyle for its residents, the homes feature open green spaces to host community events, courtyards with pavilions and barbecue stations, a central clubhouse and resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, dog park and electric car charging stations. The homes offer 9- to 12-foot ceilings, quartz countertops, wood-grain flooring, in-unit washers and dryers, a smart home technology package and have 24/7 on-call maintenance and optional enclosed garage parking.

Judges’ Comments | This development offers a nice cohesive standalone built-to-rent community. The architecture is solid, not a dumbed-down version of built for sale, and it has all the amenities. The community overall has a good feel.
