Homebuilder adding to York County, Steele Creek homes

jmarks@fortmilltimes.comJanuary 22, 2013 

— An experienced builder in the York County and Steele Creek communities is back at it again, with a new development near Tega Cay and more homes for a southwest Charlotte neighborhood.

Last week, planned Gold Hill Road development Hawk’s Creek received preliminary plat approval from the county planning commission for four land parcels totaling more than 71 acres. The properties are just outside of Tega Cay city limits, off of Gold Hill just east of Zimmerman Drive.

According to county land records, owner M/I Homes purchased three of the parcels on Dec. 21 for $1.75 million, and the other five days later for $570,000. Expected are two styles of homes, a two-story set at three to five bedrooms with two-car garages and larger, mostly ranch homes with back porches and sunroom options.

The two-stories will be 2,182 to 3,133 square feet.

“We expect the average price to be in the upper $200s or very low $300s,” said Tamara Lynch, vice president of sales and marketing.

The cottage homes, with options for a second story, will be 2,019 to 3,220 square feet priced in the lower $300s.

M/I also plans to bring more homes to Huntington Forest in Steele Creek. That residential development, near RiverGate, will grow by 59 home sites set for construction this summer.

“Details on pricing and home plans are still being finalized,” Lynch said.

Expected are both ranch and two-stories somewhere from 2,300 to a little more than 4,000 square feet. Homes should have three to six bedrooms, two or more baths and two-car garages. All will be Energy Star certified.

M/I is familiar with the area having built, among other areas, at Creekshire Village and Creekshire Estates on Zoar Road, about halfway between the two new projects.
