It doesn’t seem possible, but we’re getting ready to close out our final phase at Riverwalk! The move-in ready Crepe Myrtle at 1457 Riverwalk Parkway is one of your last chances to live in an Evans Coghill home in this incredible master planned community.

The Crepe Myrtle has everything you could want, including a great price and a February move-in date! With 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, and 2,734 square feet of living space, this home is ideal for families of all sizes. A classic 2-story home on a large homesite, the Crepe Myrtle has so many unique features – from the wrap-around front porch, to the sun-lit study with shiplap siding on the walls. As you enter the kitchen, the gleaming quartz counters and white cabinets will catch your eye, as will the large island and upgraded GE Café appliances. The adjacent dining room and family room, and the covered back porch, are ideal for entertaining and everyday family fun.

Just beyond the family room is the lovely master suite, featuring shiplap siding as well as a walk-in closet and luxurious bath with an enormous spa shower with body sprays. Talk about heaven! Upstairs, there is a spacious loft area – perfect for family game nights and movie screenings. There is also a cozy reading nook, three additional bedrooms, and another full bath.

The Crepe Myrtle features hardwood floors, a detached 2-car garage, and our signature trim details, as well as a superior location walking distance to the neighborhood swimming pool. The back porch overlooks a great backyard with lots of space! There is a heated storage room on the upper level, and the home is gigabit internet-ready. Due to be finished by February 1st, this unique new home is priced at $392,890.

Move in by spring and enjoy everything that Riverwalk has to offer, including the 3-mile Riverwalk trail that is part of the greater Carolina Thread Trail system and the Rock Hill Outdoor Center. Idyllically located on the peaceful banks of the Catawba River, this planned 1,008-acre village is a natural extension of the historic and revitalized City of Rock Hill. As part of the master plan, Riverwalk will include a YMCA and athletic fields, Town Center, River District, professional office space and residential, all thoughtfully connected and complemented by pedestrian and cycle friendly streetscapes and trails.

How to incorporate the 2018 Color of the Year into your home décor

Categories: Colors | Posted: January 12, 2018 | Comments Off on How to incorporate the 2018 Color of the Year into your home décor

Pantone has officially crowned Ultra Violet as the 2018 Color of the Year, and it’s certainly a bold choice! Here are some tips for integrating this fashion forward color into your Evans Coghill new home design:

  • Set a tone. Colors can range from soft pastels to rich jewel tones to bright, primary shades. The key to using color well is that it should flow, not be a patchwork of conflicting tones. Before you choose something as bold as Ultra Violet, decide how (or if) it meshes with your current color palette or decorating scheme.
  • Don’t be afraid. If you really love a bold shade, go ahead and use it. Just figure out how much of it you are comfortable with. What level of intensity do you want? A whole room? One wall? An area rug, curtains or pillows? Wouldn’t this bedroom look great with Ultra Violet accent pillows or even flower vases?
  • Think smaller. Powder rooms are a great place to experiment with a bold color like Ultra Violet. Create your own little jewel box of a room with intensely hued walls or towels or other accessories.
  • Keep your home’s exterior quiet. Painting your home an attention-grabbing color like purple could make you the neighborhood pariah. If you really love this vibrant color, try painting your front door or incorporating it in your pots and plantings.
  • Create balance. If you choose a provocative palette, remember to ground the vibrant colors and balance them by adding a rich chocolate, black or peacock blue.

Now that you have some expert decorating tips, it’s time to go Ultra Violet!

New Year Resolutions for Your Home

Categories: Good Info to Know, Homeowner Tips | Posted: January 5, 2018 | Comments Off on New Year Resolutions for Your Home

Setting New Year goals for yourself may be easier than setting them for your whole household. Whether it’s trying a new design trend or making sure family dinners happen once a week, here are some good ideas for a bright 2018!

  • Create goals that are reasonable. Instead of resolving to do something you don’t like or that may be too ambitious, try setting goals that are doable. It’s easier to reach your target if you actually make it reachable! And you’ll love that feeling of accomplishment.
  • Get organized. Now is the perfect time to de-clutter your drawers and desk. Sort paperwork, bills, mementos and mail. Clean out the closets – and see how much space you have. Invest in a closet organization system.
  • Automate it. Whether you’re trying to lower the heating bills or find time to exercise consistently, automation is the key. Automated thermostats. Automated bill paying. Automatic reminders. It’s easier to develop and stick to new habits with a little help from technology.
  • Take a risk. Nothing too crazy, just something outside your comfort zone. Always wanted to learn rock-climbing? Do it! Wondering what ultra-violet would look like in the family room? Do it! You’ll never know if you don’t try!
  • Start – and finish – a project. Whether it’s a DIY project, a redecorating scheme or a larger renovation, break it into steps so it doesn’t seem overwhelming. Create a rough schedule and try to check off parts of the project in increments. It may take a while, but eventually you’ll get it done.
  • Slow down. Take the time to sit down and eat as a family. Savor a meal instead of rushing around and grabbing fast food. Schedule movie or game nights. Un-schedule yourself from too many obligations. Say no.
  • Create a comfortable bedroom. Basic but necessary. Stop using your bedroom as an office/play room/library/laundry sorting facility. Make it a quiet, comfortable space where you can collapse and recharge at the end of the day.

  • Love your home and your life, imperfections included. Appreciate the warmth and shelter your home provides. Take note of the thoughtful little things your spouse does. Enjoy watching your kids play together. Be grateful for your home, your family, and your health – and let the other stuff go.
