Apartment builders are beginning to create places that offer real style and great lifestyle. In fact, they’re taking the same approach to design that the best homebuilders do. Not merely focusing on square footage, bedroom counts and the typical features, but thinking deeply about how people want to live — both inside their homes and out. One intriguing example in Summerville is Parks at Nexton.

A bold palette
When it comes to interior design, Parks at Nexton was made for people who love energetic, modern style. Floors are either polished concrete or the latest in luxury vinyl plank. Cabinets and fixtures are contemporary fresh. Granite countertops and top-quality appliances make the kitchens feel custom-designed. And wide-open floor plans with nine-foot ceilings, and details such as plantation shutters and framed mirrors, give every apartment a sunny, welcoming sense of individuality and home.

Healthy living
More and more people are asking for new homes and communities that encourage an active outdoor lifestyle. Parks at Nexton delivers in spades. Instead of the typical swimming pool that leaves you smelling like chlorine, the saline pool at Parks leaves your skin feeling soft. A fitness center just for Parks residents includes cardio equipment, ballet bars, free weights, and a high-tech, interactive kick-boxing machine called the Nexersys.

Then again, if you simply want a breath of fresh air, just step out onto the patio or balcony that’s included with almost every Parks floor plan.

Leading-edge community
As with the most desirable homes, you can’t have a truly great apartment unless you have a great community surrounding it. A community with big parks. Trails to hike and bike on. Places to eat and shop. Outdoor concerts, farmers markets and festivals. And of course, employment opportunities.

The Beach Company, developer of Parks at Nexton, saw that Nexton was fast becoming such a community and wanted their newest apartment offering to be part of it. Nexton has already become home base for major employers such as South Carolina Research Authority. Restaurants and shops are coming soon. And cultural life in Nexton kicked off with an outdoor concert by the Ben Miller Band. The concert was part of the annual Piccolo Spoleto festival and was hosted in Nexton’s Brown Family Park, right across the street from The Parks.

On top of that, Nexton is South Carolina’s first gigabit community — a place where every business, home and apartment has access to gigabit internet service. So Nexton has become a model of how to bring people together in both traditional ways and with cutting-edge technology.

The moral of the story
To find an apartment that feels like home, first understand the ingredients that make a great home. And if you’d like to see a living example, consider paying a visit to Parks at Nexton.
