Our Favorite Baxter Village New Homes

Categories: Baxter Village, Ft Mill SC New Homes, Riverwalk, Rock Hill SC New Homes | Posted: June 24, 2014 | Comments Off on Our Favorite Baxter Village New Homes

In 2002, Evans Coghill was invited to build new homes in Baxter Village. For the next 11 years, we designed and built many great homes there.  Today, the Baxter Village is complete. We still  love to visit our old friends there and see how the fantastic streetscapes with the maturing landscaping.

We are asked what is our favorite home in Baxter? That is tough because everyone was different and special. Some were custom homes designed specifically for a family. Others were new home plans with great new features.

But,  our team just could not agree on our favorites. Everyone liked different homes. We tried  but there were so many!

So, I am offering you list of just a few of our  favorite Evans Coghill  Baxter Village homes. Maybe next time, we can share more?

A great craftsman style home in Baxter Village by Evans Coghill

Located near town center, this home is a favorite because of the great craftsman details on the exterior. The stone veneer, real cedar siding, soffit corbels and unique front porch railing all work together to make this home beautiful.  This home plan developed into our popular Mayberry home plan.

 

This is the first build of the very popular Catawba Cottage ranch home plan. It was custom built in Baxter and the homeowner included some great features. The Catawba Cottage is a 3 bedroom ranch home plan. It is available again in Riverwalk beginning early 2015. We live the River Birch plan in Riverwalk because is it similar to this plan.

It is available again in Riverwalk beginning early 2015.  We like this home because of the special entry foyer, two step tray ceiling and the fact it is a ranch plan! The River Bend plan in Riverwalk is similar to this plan.

 

This is the Tremont home plan in Baxter Village. The Tremont was developed with a guest bedroom and four more upstairs. The Tremont plan evolved into our currently available Carnegie home plan available in Springfield and River Run.

This is the Tremont home plan in Baxter Village. The Tremont was developed with a guest bedroom on the main level and four more upstairs. We hear request from home buyers who want space for a visiting grandmother or room for multi-generational living. The Tremont offers it. We especially liked the huge master closet and master suite in this plan. The Tremont plan evolved into our currently available Carnegie home plan in Springfield and River Run.

 

Sweetgrass Baxter Village

This is one of the first Sweetgrass home plans we built in Baxter Village. We like this home because of its great upcountry classical styling on the elevation while offering a wide open floor plan on the interior. There is even room for a pool table upstairs.The best part of the Sweetgrass home plan’s layout was the basis for our award winning Homearama 2013 home – The River Cottage

We like this home because we are a sucker for simple living. Can't you just see yourself on that front porch on a warm summer evening? The picture doesn't show them well but the gas lights on the front porch really set the mood of the entire home.

This home has to be on the list of of Favs. It is our award winning Homearama 2011 Show Home in Baxter Village. Everything was perfect in this home. Our favorite part was the great room / dining room combination that opened so wonderfully to the huge screen porch with fireplace on the rear. This is the River Cottage plan. The River Cottage is available in Springfield and River Run.

The Springs Farm Peach Stand in Ft Mill

Categories: Baxter Village, Good Info to Know | Posted: July 9, 2013 | Comments Off on The Springs Farm Peach Stand in Ft Mill

Peach Stand 2013(This was originally posted in Aug 2011. Being a timeless destination, nothing has changed at the Peach Stand since then. They still are doing the same thing – selling delicious peaches from a quaint roadside stand. Stop in to see them! The season has begun. The sooner you go the sooner you can go back.

As for Evans Coghill, lots has changed – great new homes and model home in Riverwalk, new ready to move in homes in Springfield, more new homes coming to Cotswold and several new team members.)

When you come to Riverwalk or Springfield to look at Evans Coghill’s great new homes, be sure to stop by the Peach Stand. It is a Ft Mill landmark.

Located at the corner of Hwys 160 and 21, the Peach Stand has been the local’s source for peaches for since the 1930s when Elliot Springs built the stand. The Springs Farm still operates today focusing on the improving farming techniques for peach and strawberry growing. The Springs family and their farm has been a driving force behind Ft Mill for many generations. Read more about the farms history.

Originally built by Elliott White in the 1930s, the Springs Farms peach stand stands today.

From Charlotte, take I-77 South to Exit 85 (this is the Baxter Village exit). Turn left at the top of the ramp. The peach stand will be on your left in less than one mile. The Exxon station is on the right but be sure to go to the stand on the left. Same people. Same peaches just more authenic at the old wooden stand. The peach season will be ending in September so come soon.

Evans Coghill Homes is proud to offer new homes in Springfield, Baxter Village and soon in Riverwalk on the shores of the Catawba River and share Springs Farms peaches with you, too.
