Spring is right around the corner, and McLean’s new construction activity and beauty are ready to blossom. In addition to introducing you to some of our accomplished builders now constructing homes at McLean, this newsletter will give you schedule updates and a little bit about the history of the McLean houses on the property.
Schedule updates on South Shore and Conservancy
South Shore’s entrances and landscape will be completed in the next 60 days, and work is expected to begin soon on the South Shore Residents Club. The club, designed by Schrader Design Custom Architecture, will be perched on a bluff overlooking the lake and will include a clubhouse, fitness center and competition pool and sundeck. The club will be a signature for South Shore and will open early spring 2017.
Model homes and the first estate-home offerings by Peachtree Residential and John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods are slated to open this summer.
The Conservancy neighborhood adjacent to Seven Oaks Preserve is expected to announce its first builder and home offerings in the next 60 days, with construction to start soon after.
South Shore homes beginning to blossom
Even before spring wildflowers bloom in the Seven Oaks Nature Preserve, luxury custom homes in South Shore are starting to rise above the waters of Lake Wylie.
The first home under construction in our prestigious South Shore neighborhood is being built by McSpadden Custom Homes. Builder and architect Doug McSpadden has a special tie to McLean. He grew up on Lake Wylie and lives nearby. Learn more about McSpadden Custom Homes.
Arthur Rutenberg Homes breaks ground
One of America’s biggest builders of estate homes, Arthur Rutenberg Homes, also has begun its first lakeside home at South Shore. The company has several choice South Shore home sites ready for buyers, and company President Mitch Genda recently hosted a well-attended “Discover McLean” luncheon for area Realtors. Genda gave a short presentation on the smooth process of building in McLean with AR Homes. Learn more about Arthur Rutenberg Homes.
Peachtree Residential starts 5 homes
Also breaking ground in McLean is Peachtree Residential. Peachtree has crafted thousands of fine homes since the 1980s throughout Georgia and North Carolina and has five under way near the future South Shore Residents Club – a stunning facility in its own right, with beautiful vistas of Lake Wylie and excellent fitness, recreational and social amenities.

Historic McLean houses a part of community’s fabric
While many have visited the John Davidson McLean house that we have renovated and now use as our information center, this is not the only historic McLean house on our property or for that matter in the area.
The JDB McLean House stands across from the Seven Oaks Preserve trailhead on New Hope Road. Around the corner, on land that is part of the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens, stands a third 19th century McLean house.
John Davidson Brevard McLean was an esteemed Gaston County leader and sheriff who eventually moved to the John Davidson McLean house that his daughter Nell would name Seven Oaks. These houses are part of our community fabric, and we are working to determine plans for the JDB McLean house, which is flanked by attractive oak trees close to where the City of Belmont’s park will be constructed.
