Phase II of The Cottages at Johns Island is now here! Mungo Homes is building again in this cozy wooded neighborhood off Maybank Highway on Johns Island. As planned, 23 families will choose their lot and home out of 7 new and unique floor plans. Home sizes will range from 1,620 square feet to 2,750 square feet with 3 and 4 bedroom designs. Pricing on the homes will range from about $185K to $218K (it’s hard to beat the Johns Island real estate market when looking at new construction in this price range). Estimated time of completion from contract to move in is approximately 4 to 5 months. The first phase of The Cottages at Johns Island sold an amazing 63 homes in a little over 12 months from 2010 to 2011, which makes it one of the fastest growing (and selling) neighborhoods on Johns Island.

Carolina One New Homes is exclusively marketing The Cottages. Home plans will be open concept plans that are 2 to 3 stories with some double front porch designs, and one and two car detached garages keeping the Downtown Charleston feel that folks loved in Phase I of the community.

Interior features include things such as a music/IPOD dock with built-in speaker. Each home is rated by HERS to ensure your home is efficient and environmentally friendly. For example, every home comes with a Rinnai Tankless Gas water heater as a standard feature. The roof trusses are specifically engineered and wrapped to deflect 97% of heat, decreasing your attic temperature by about 30 degrees. These are only a few examples of the standard features you will find in Mungo’s homes.

Community amenities include scenic walking paths, common green spaces that are landscaped, a fishing pond, and a children’s playground. There is a wonderful county park only a short 5 minute drive away from the neighborhood (the James Island County Park, which has a water park, climbing wall, kids play park, miles of walking/biking trails, a large dog park, and much more). There are two grocery stores and several restaurants within a minute or two from the neighborhood. Downtown Charleston and Kiawah Island are only 20 minutes away. Folly Beach is within a 25 minute drive, as well. To locate the Cottages at Johns Island, take Maybank Highway, pass River Road and make a right on Towne Street by True Value Hardware store.

If you are looking for a quaint, southern style neighborhood with cleanly landscaped streets around the $200K price point, take a look at Mungo Homes’ The Cottages at Johns Island. It is difficult to compete with the quality, value, and convenience to Downtown Charleston and the beaches.
