January 24, 2018, Mt. Pleasant, SC – Beginning January 29th, Carolina Park, the region’s premier master-planned community, will introduce a limited release of 30 custom homesites close to one of its newest and most significant amenities. Located in the heart of the Riverside community, the new Bolden Lake neighborhood will feature distinctive custom homes situated on large, private lots, each seamlessly integrated into the natural surroundings and thoughtfully planned to provide exceptional views and privacy. Just steps away, Bolden Park will take its place as the hub of the community; a perfect spot for informal gatherings, abundant recreation, and peaceful escapes. From its 20-acre centerpiece, Bolden Lake, to its expansive boardwalk, shady plaza, and trails that meander along the lake's calming waters, this natural retreat will ensure that Riverside continues to be Mount Pleasant’s most desirable new community.
In contemplating Bolden Lake, the developer’s vision evolved directly from an intimate connection to the land and a commitment to provide opportunities for daily connections with nature along the lake. Their aim was to celebrate the natural gifts already provided by the abundant trees and wildlife and to create a community inspired by traditional Lowcountry architecture reminiscent of historic coastal towns.
“The homes overlooking the lake will frame Bolden Park and will naturally become an extension of park itself. We wanted to create an environment that was both inviting and unique, and we wanted this to be a place that welcomes and draws neighbors together,” said Brian Keels, Director of Development.
In executing their vision, Carolina Park brought in some of the area's most highly regarded architects, planners, and custom builders to plan the lakefront homes in advance. In addition to meeting Riverside's design guidelines, The Lakefront will have its own unique set of design standards intended to preserve the overarching vision for this special area. The architecture will take on a slightly more relaxed character that celebrates the outdoors and complements today's casual Lowcountry lifestyle. Each home will be thoughtfully designed to maximize views and highlight the distinctive features offered by its homesite.
"We want to connect people to the land and nature - to bridge the gap between indoors and outdoors while creating a neighborhood in the tradition of great coastal communities like Savannah, Beaufort and Charleston." said Keels. "With architectural features like broad roof overhangs, exposed rafter tails, and expansive porches with high ceilings, each home should feel like it's always belonged here, offering views of the park and lake while fitting seamlessly into the landscape."
"This truly is a rare opportunity," said Haley Cuzzell, Sales Manager for Riverside. "These are some of the most unique properties we’ve offered to date with views of the park, lake, ponds and woodlands. We’ve all been waiting a long time for Bolden Lake, which makes this introduction a very exciting way to kick off 2018.”
