Pulte plans to offer only 16 townhomes at this time, with prices beginning at just under $300,000. Interested buyers are invited to get a first look at the coastal-inspired townhome model to see how design and function come together before the official grand opening of the development next month. For those on a short timeline, three quick move-in homes are expected to be available in late October, and five more in early December.

The Lily floorplan features a choice of two or three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths with a large kitchen island that’s perfect for doing homework, meal prep or for casual dining. End-unit townhomes feature a one-car garage, and all models include designated parking in the back, in addition to off-street parking.

The first phase of Midtown, also known as the Blueway District, features the Midtown Club, which is currently under construction. With an expected completion date next year, it will include a lagoon-style pool, fitness center, rooms for yoga and remote co-working spaces, a lawn with food truck hook-ups, and outdoor space with open fields, a pavilion, playground and tennis and pickleball courts.

Nexton Towns is located at 587 Blueway Ave. in Summerville. Hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Wednesday and Sunday noon to 6 p.m. For more information, call 843.326.4293 or visit

Beaufort County plantation sells for $4.75M

Bonny Hall Plantation, a 6,000-square-foot historic estate built on 86 acres in the heart of the ACE Basin, sold on Oct. 1 for $4.75 million, according to Charleston-based Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty, which oversaw the transaction.

Located in Beaufort County near Yemasee, the Georgian-style main home was built in 1897 and features five bedrooms, six and a half baths, antique furniture and original millwork, according to the listing. Two separate guest cottages, a six-stall barn, and a pecan orchard are a few of the amenities on the extensive grounds, which abound with live oaks and wind along the bank of the Combahee River.

The property was originally part of a land grant to Joseph Blake. In the 1930s famed Long Island landscape architect Umberto Innocenti designed the home’s walled garden, featuring 12-foot gates, camellias, towering live oaks and terracotta sculptures. Most recently, renowned Charleston-based preservation architect Glenn Keyes was enlisted in 2005 to help the previous owners update the home to modern standards.

Bonny Hall Plantation was listed by Middleton Rutledge of Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty and sold for $100,000 over asking price. The buyer was represented by Todd Crosby at Crosby Land Company. Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty has closed over $2 billion in real estate sales over its 38 years of business.
