Greenwood Communities adds Harbor Homes to Builder Team at The Ponds

September 09, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
The Ponds, a new home community near Charleston SC, is pleased to welcome Harbor Homes to The Ponds Builder team. Harbor Homes is a Mungo Company, which is based in Columbia, South Carolina.  Since 1954, the Mungo family has enjoyed a track record of success in building new homes and has ranked among the nation's largest home builders.

At The Ponds, Harbor is offering a product line of seven house plans, with each plan having two elevation options. Square footages range from 2,546 sq. ft. to 3,418 sq. ft. with base prices ranging from $277,900 to $337,900. Construction of a field model will begin within the next few weeks.

"Bringing in Harbor Homes is our response to expressed preferences of the value conscious consumer. While we will be offering more square footage for the consumer dollar, all homes built will continue to follow community design guidelines." noted John Morgan, The Ponds Community Manager for Greenwood.  "In addition to the new Harbor Homes offering, we will be bringing on line very soon new homes beginning in the low $200,000s" he said. "The market has shifted and we plan to remain ahead of the curve in giving consumers the value they expect and deserve."

"We are excited about the new product positioning at The Ponds," says Morgan, "this move will provide home offerings ranging from the low $200,000s to the low $400,000s, with custom homesites starting at $79,900.  We are a diverse community with a wide range of pricing options that appeal to consumers at different life stages."

"Greenwood has established itself as a premier master planned community builder in the Tri-County area and we are excited about offering our homes within such a high quality context," stated Lee McLoud, division president of Harbor Homes.

About The Ponds
The Ponds is a 1,950-acre master-planned community set between the town of Summerville and the Ashley River Historic District. In addition to a 1,100-acre nature preserve, residents of The Ponds will enjoy the benefits of an onsite Summerville Family YMCA, EMS/Fire Station and several community parks. Greenwood has also set aside land for a K 8 public school.

The Ponds' residential offering includes custom home sites for new homes priced from the $70s and single-family homes priced from the low $200s. Several homes are now complete, and the first residents have moved in. Also complete is the first planned amenity complex, including a pool, outdoor pavilion, 11-acre multi-purpose field and a restored historic farmhouse. The first phase also includes a waterfront outdoor amphitheatre and several neighborhood parks. A 60-plus-mile sidewalk and trail system connecting to The Ponds' 1,100-acre nature preserve will be phased in as development progresses. An early part of the system, however, linking the community trail head at the restored farmhouse to hundreds of acres of woods, pastures and ponds, is complete and in service.
