Nexton Honored with 2023 Best in American Living Award

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. – March 19, 2024 – Nexton, the most innovative and walkable community in South Carolina, announced today it was awarded a 2023 Best in American Living Awards (BALA) by The National Association of Home Builders Design Committee in the category of Single-Family Community For Rent for its built-for-rent neighborhood, The Villas at Nexton. BALA is the building industry's premier residential design awards program that spotlights the most creative and talented industry professionals who redefine design excellence for homes and communities nationally and internationally.

“Built-for-rent communities are rapidly gaining popularity as they offer a unique blend of convenience, flexibility and community living,” says Cassie Cataline, marketing director at Nexton. “This award underscores Nexton’s commitment to providing innovative housing solutions that prioritize modern lifestyles and foster vibrant communities and we are honored to be recognized.”

The Villas at Nexton earned the gold award in the category Single-Family Community for Rent. The Villas at Nexton spans nearly 27 acres and offers 282 single-family and duplex rental homes that cater to young professionals, empty nesters and those transitioning to the Charleston area looking to rent instead of buy. The community features a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom cottages, each with its own private, fenced yard, as well as one-bedroom lofts and carriage units. The homes range from 650 to 1,350 square feet and rental rates start at $1,535 per month.

To create a true neighborhood feel for its residents, the community features open green spaces to host community events, courtyards with pavilions and barbeque stations, a central clubhouse and resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, dog park and electric car charging stations. The homes offer nine- to 12-foot ceilings, quartz countertops, wood-grain flooring, in-unit washers and dryers, a smart home technology package and have 24/7 on-call maintenance and optional enclosed garage parking.

Nexton is a lifestyle-driven destination that artfully blends the best of live, work and play by offering conveniences such as state-of-the-art schools, modern infrastructure, 20 miles of trails and 2,000 acres of green space. The community’s four residential neighborhoods include apartments, built-for-rent homes, townhomes and a variety of for-sale single-family homes that cater to first-time buyers, executives and 55+ retirees. Nexton has currently sold over 3,000 homes.
