This post is in partnership with Nexton, but all opinions are my own.
If you haven’t been to Summerville lately, you may not be aware of the growing community that now has it’s own exit right off I-26! Allow me to introduce you to Nexton; a walkable, bike-able, and golf cart-able community where everything is wonderfully connected. Trails and sidewalks connect homes with conveniences like Nexton Square (where you can find some of Charleston's best shopping and dining) , a growing number of workplaces, schools, and parks and green spaces. A true live-work-play community. I shared more about it on my latest Lowcountry Live segment, so you can watch that here!
You’ll find homes by eight talented builders, from town houses to large family homes. They all have a Lowcountry flair, but they are definitely designed for modern life - that means the fastest internet you'll find in the region, eco-friendly building practices that save you money, flexible and customizable floorplans and features that make your day-to-day life easier. The front porches will just blow you away, I love them all!
I also couldn’t get over all of the green spaces you’ll find around Nexton. It’s the kind of place that makes you really want to get outside and play! Your kids could ride around on their bikes until the sun goes down without you having to worry about them. There’s also fun to be had by the whole family, so just check out Nexton’s Facebook page for details about their concerts & other events on the square.
Nexton Square is a place to note even if you’re not looking for a home in Summerville. I recently went to check out all the restaurants like Taco Boy, Hall's Chophouse, and Wok N' Roll. Those are already open, as well as boutiques like Simple to Sublime & Bey + Eloise. Charleston Glow & Guinot Skincare also just opened, but there are dozens of additional locally-owned retailers set to open in the coming months, including restaurants Bad Daddy's Burger Bar, Fuji Sushi. They’ll have everything from dental care and fitness to shopping and world-class dining...it's all right in the community.
Sounds pretty neat to get to ride your golf cart to run errands then grab a tasty lunch all within your community! There will be even more businesses popping up in Nexton Square soon, so keep an eye on this thriving community the next time you’re in the Summerville area! Head to Nexton’s website to learn more about the lovely homes that await you there.
