South Shore to Offer Estate-Sized Lakefront and Lake View Homesites

McLean, a 670-acre master planned community on the shores of Lake Wylie, has announced the builders and other details for South Shore, its first neighborhood.

The initial builders will be: John Wieland Homes & Neighborhoods, Peachtree Residential, Andrew Roby, McSpadden Custom Homes, New Old, Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Fairwood Residential and J. Barwick Construction.

South Shore will offer a variety of lakefront and lake-view homes on estate-sized lots, built by builders selected and approved by McLean’s developer, NW Lake Wylie LLC. Home prices there are expected to range from the $400,000s to more than $1 million based on property view, home size, finishes and design.

“This is an exciting time for McLean as we prepare for our builders to start home construction. We are thrilled with the team of builders that we have assembled and the designs and quality that they will bring to the community,” said Steven Hinshaw, principal of NW Lake Wylie LLC.

John Wieland and Peachtree will construct model homes in South Shore that should be completed as early as the first quarter 2016.

Homes at South Shore will comply with design guidelines and standards established for the community. A variety of home styles are expected and designs will be reviewed and evaluated for attention to details including scale, and both primary and waterfront exterior elevations.

Home construction is expected to start late summer as final infrastructure improvements are completed, Hinshaw said. Interested purchasers will be able to gather information via the McLean and builder websites, the information center in the historic, recently refurbished McLean house on site, or by contacting their realtor.
