It is a well known fact that people who grew up in a rural setting or a small town are more trusting and friendlier than people who grew up in cities. There is a certain charm associated with living in a rural setting where people are more open and trust abounds. If you live in the Charlotte area and you happen to be looking for a property, the Somerset Development on Union County next to the border of Mecklenburg offers you the chance to live in a community modeled on a rural environment. Make no mistake though, although the development sits on a huge land with a lot of trees and spacious lots, the amenities are as modern as they come. Somerset is at least 200 acres hence the need to have a number of top developers on site. Some of the builders in this master-planned development include St. Lawrence Homes, Ryland Homes, D.R. Horton and Hovnanian Homes.
The grand entrance to the community on Somerset Drive ushers you to the luxurious homes that make up the development. The gorgeous landscaping at the entrance offers a snapshot of what to expect throughout the entire development. A lot of planning has gone into the development to ensure that every home in the community has its own private space and the rolling countryside provides the perfect scenic background for the luxury homes. The community has an active Home Owners Association that not only brings the residents together, but also works tirelessly to keep the residents happy and comfortable.
The typical house in the development has 4 – 6 bedrooms and the architects have done an amazing job. The rooms are spacious, the kitchens are gourmet-type and the houses have large garages to accommodate 2 or 3 cars at a time. If you are considering getting a property here, the prices start from around $320,000 to $500,000. The final price depends on the size and location of the particular property. Since the development is meant to promote a friendly atmosphere, residents can meet in the clubhouse or play together in the community’s tennis courts. The community also has swimming pools including one for kids that has a water splash and other water games. For quiet reflection, one can take a long and invigorating walk around the community on the walking trails.
The location of the development in Union County means lower taxes for the homeowners and numerous shopping locations nearby. You can simply take a walk to CVS and Kohl’s at the nearby Marvin Town Center. In addition, the location of the development allows you to shop and dine in any of the numerous shopping places found in Waxhaw. As a Somerset resident, you will be happy to take your children to some of the top schools in the area that include Rea View Elementary, Marvin Ridge Middle School and Marvin Ridge High School. Being close to Mecklenburg, you can take your children to the equally good schools found in the county. We welcome you to give us a call if you want to own a piece of this paradise.
