First Homes, Amenities Under Construction at South Shore
Despite the cold weather, snow and ice, things are heating up in McLean’s signature neighborhood, South Shore, with waterfront home construction on Lake Wylie beginning and amenities taking shape.
Builders Doug McSpadden and Arthur Rutenberg are clearing lots in preparation for construction to begin on their first pre-sold custom homes on the lake. Peachtree and John Wieland are also close to beginning work on their own estate home sites. Within a few weeks, both builders will begin building model homes and their first group of inventory homes.
Meanwhile, the first of the community’s new trails along Armstrong Road are already completed, hinting at what is to come. McLean will offer a network of trails, with asphalt and natural surfaces, that will tie into the Carolina Thread Trail at Seven Oaks Preserve trailhead on New Hope Road. The Thread Trail will give residents direct access to nearby Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens.
This spring will see start of efforts on a large community garden to be developed behind the McLean House as well as the South Shore clubhouse and pool across Armstrong Road and just beyond the row of cherry trees. These are just a few of the items that will make living at McLean a daily opportunity to nurture, explore and rejuvenate.
The waterfront custom sales team, Peachtree and Wieland representatives are on call to answer your questions and provide construction updates and details about new homes in South Shore. Stop by our information center during regular hours or contact them here for an appointment or to get the scoop.
Next Best Thing To Being Here
Scenic beauty, stately homes, lakefront living and colorful history; McLean has it all, and so much more.
To capture McLean’s rich and distinctive narrative, we’ll soon launch a blog titled From Lake to Land – About McLean, Belmont and Lake Wylie. The blog will be a primary source for reporting on progress and other news about the development. But it will also include broader information about our community partners such as the town of Belmont, DSBG and Carolina Thread Trail. There will be content about the local lifestyle, history, people and events that make the Lake Wylie area unique.
We know you’ll enjoy reading From Lake to Land – About McLean, Belmont and Lake Wylie between visits to McLean. Stay tuned for an announcement about the inaugural blog post.
