As you read this issue, the first of 53 custom homes are already shaping up—shapes that include dramatic rooflines and distinctive features from the mind of architect Bobby McAlpine, one of the most respected, revered, and renowned residential designers in the country. Progress at Silk Hope lots 47 and 48, soon to be known as 120 and 96 Riceland Way respectively, is solid evidence that the vision that once was Silk Hope is quickly becoming a reality.
The 12 floor plans available for the Silk Hope semi-custom homes offer luxury maintenance-free living surrounded by natural greenspace, manicured gardens, a wildlife preserve, common space for gatherings with friends and neighbors, and access to all of the world-class amenities that make The Ford Plantation one of only 150 Platinum Clubs® of America.
The Silk Hope community creates yet another unique coastal living option at The Ford Plantation to complement what is already an array of diverse opportunities based on the specific desires of members. For example, mariners can build at Silk Hope Harbour Village, just a few footsteps from the Silk Hope Marina and Ogeechee Outfitters. Golfers have the option of living on one of the nation’s top 100 residential courses with stunning views of one of the seven lakes. Pecan Grove Paddock Estates allow equestrian lovers to build a home and stable complex. The persona of McAllister Point evokes the old world charm of Savannah and Charleston homes built around a central square. And Cherry Hill Village, a favorite with young families, provides convenient access to groomed green space, a community pool, the Wellness Complex, three Har-Tru tennis courts, the Lake Dye Grill the Clubhouse, and the golf course.
One other noteworthy aspect of the Silk Hope development is that the community is built for club members by a group of existing club members—there is likely no stronger endorsement.
