Avondale at Lawton Station - Bluffton, South Carolina

"The hallmark of Village Park Homes is a true neighborhood," explains Leslie Person, marketing director for the highly respected and hugely successful company. "One where close-knit bonds are made between neighbors, people of all ages interact and a stroll through the winding, tree-lined streets brings back old-fashioned traditions."

With more than 20 years of experience building quality homes in the South, Village Park has helped establish some of the area's most admired communities. According to Person, the secret of the company's success is its commitment to the consumer. Village Park has taken the experience and insights gained from working with thousands of satisfied homeowners to produce quality homes in exceptional neighborhoods.

Nestled within Lawton Station in Bluffton, South Carolina, the quaint neighborhood of Avondale demonstrates development at its best and Village Park Homes at its brightest. One of many community features, the clubhouse offers several reasons for residents to stay active and acquainted with their neighbors. It includes a fitness facility, meeting rooms and large swimming pool. In addition, an expansive park is ideal for community activities, picnics, festivals, concerts, parties and sports. Equally notable is the development's name.

"We named Lawton Station after a general who was involved in much of the Southeastern railroad growth," Person says. "We liked the idea of the three distinctive neighborhoods of Avondale, Bellmeade and Cambridge being named with the letters A, B and C, as if they were station stops A, B and C on a train route."

Avondale, Lawton Station's first neighborhood, has been well received, with more than 95 percent of the home sites in the first release already sold.

"Phase one offers many great lagoon lots," Person says. "They are smaller and more affordable but with great views."

In addition to the views, Avondale homes come with a long list of amenities. The landscape package offers a sodded yard in the front and rear, custom design, an irrigation system, premium trees and shrubs, a comprehensive oneyear maintenance warranty and termite soil treatment with a one-year warranty.

Avondale homes are built to last. Exterior features include a dentresistant front door, dent- and fade-resistant vinyl shutters and durable exterior Progress lighting fixtures. Homeowners also will appreciate cement-fiber siding and trim, 30-year architectural shingles, site-built construction and framing, a decorative trim package and 42-inch upper kitchen cabinets with crown molding. Homeowners may also customize their homes by selecting their flooring, including hardwood, carpet and tile, and by selecting cabinetry styles and countertops.
