Priced from $329,900, The Turner features a first-floor master suite with laundry and guest bath on the first level, and a connected living room and kitchen that is perfect for socializing. The Dawson offers three bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 1,907 square feet of luxury living space. Starting at $299,000, The Dawson features an open floor plan that connects the great room, dining and kitchen areas.

The Grove will feature 61, two-story townhomes ranging from 1,800 to 2,200 square feet. Homes will have three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a one-car garage.  Master bedrooms are available on the first or second floors. Also, homeowners can meet their neighbors and make new friends at the community fire pit, a social space with a relaxed beach “vibe.”

“The Grove is uniquely positioned to provide buyers with semi-custom new construction in an intimate community,” said Frank McKee, Jr. “Low monthly costs make it easy for buyers to realize their dream of owning a beach home in the beautiful and tranquil setting at Fenwick Island.”
