Shea Homes—No. 32 on the 2022 Builder 100—is planning two new South Carolina communities with the purchase of 51 acres in Fort Mill.

The land is slated for 137 single-family homes in two distinct new communities: Windell Woods and Solis at Windell Woods. Both communities will offer a variety of single-family floor plans and design options in a location within Tega Cay, South Carolina, city limits.

Windell Woods will offer one- and two-story floor plans ranging from 2,400 to over 3,400 square feet and will feature generous garage and storage spaces, including walk-in pantries and options to expand living spaces with a home gym, a second-story deck, or a first-floor guest room.

Solis at Windell Woods will be a carriage home community for homeowners looking for an intimate, yet private courtyard living experience. These homes range in square footage from 1,900 to over 2,200 square feet and will include contemporary features such as two-story great rooms, lofts, and optional dual primary bedrooms.

“We are very excited about bringing these brand-new floor plans and exterior designs to Tega Cay," says Kate Watts, vice president of sales and marketing for Shea Homes. "These designs were driven by consumer research that we conducted to discover what folks are looking for in a new home in today’s modern era."

The purchase of the $9.12 million site was exclusively handled by Forde Britt and Mariel Ellerbe, residential land advisors with Land Advisors Organization’s Charlotte office.

“This parcel was one of the last available large tracts of land in the Tega Cay submarket, and Shea Homes saw the opportunity it presents,” says Britt. “Although builders are seeing a slowdown in new-home purchases, after an incredibly robust two years, inventory remains low for most builders. Planning for the future, as Shea is with this purchase, provides valuable new lots in a highly desirable area.”

Construction is expected to begin this summer, with the first homes becoming available in fall 2023.
