Embrace Outdoor Living with New Leaf’s Domus Collection

Living large inside and out in Midtown Nexton

Published June 05, 2023
Life’s a little slower during a Lowcountry summer.

The days are long and warm, drawing residents to the water, or the grill, with a cold drink nearby.

New Leaf homes in a master-planned community like Nexton allow you to enjoy summer days without leaving the neighborhood.

You may not even want to leave your backyard.

Courtyards Customized for Your Life

New Leaf Builder’s Domus Collection is designed for homeowners who want to take their life outside. Inspired by the Roman architectural style, these plans emphasize the courtyard space and extra living area (up to 400 square feet of it) available with a customizable outdoor spot. And much like the Romans, the Domus collection allows homeowners and guests to enjoy seamless indoor and outdoor living.

It’s a place where you can enjoy your morning coffee before getting your hands dirty by working in the garden.

It may become the gathering spot for your friends and family, where you grill, play games, and spend an evening by the firepit.

And if you’re looking for low maintenance, you won’t have to break a sweat if you add beautiful astroturf.

You may need a space to cool off. The Domus Collection offers flexibility for an in-ground wading pool, adding another lifestyle option. New Leaf Builders has connections with local pool installers who can help you create a perfect backyard oasis.

The open floor plans make the courtyard a focal point of the design. The living room and kitchen open up to the outdoor space, making entertainment smooth and functional.

Creating an Oasis with Outvillas

New Leaf’s Domus Collection designs add an additional layer of customization with detached outvillas. The spaces create more living and working areas for your home

Maybe you envision many nights of al fresco dining. The Gazebo is perfect for an outdoor kitchen. Or, if you’re looking for a bit more storage, it’s an ideal place to keep your gear, like kayaks and bikes. And three roof options allow you to pick a style that matches your home.

If you can’t wait to grab your gardening gloves and put plants in the ground, the Potter’s Shed is the place to store your tools and maybe a little mini fridge with your favorite beverage for when the work is finished.

It’s also a hobby haven. A place where you can escape and enjoy whatever you love, whether that’s woodworking, making pottery, or getting your tackle ready for a day on the water.

The Cabana is like the ultimate poolhouse. It has a bathroom, full kitchenette, and a living room. If you don’t have a pool, it can be used as a studio, a home office, or a place to entertain guests (and escape those summer afternoon thunderstorms).

Homeowners looking for a true guest house will find it in the Casita. It features a bedroom, living room, and kitchenette. Long-term guests can have a space to themselves and if you have family or friends in town for the weekend, it’s a perfect retreat for them.

The outvillas are designed with the courtyard in mind. They complement the outdoor space and work with it. So no matter what you need, they can fit your lifestyle.

Live Where Everything Is in the Neighborhood

Beyond the courtyard, life in a New Leaf Nexton home can be enjoyed in many ways. The livability and accessibility of a master-planned community make life here appealing to just about anyone.

Nexton is a place where many families ride bikes or walk together to enjoy a meal or time outdoors. 15 miles (with more to come) of natural trails are accessible and green space are abundant. 46 parks are dotted throughout Nexton, making time outside with kids as easy as walking out your front door.

Many residents rarely leave Nexton because so much of life can be lived inside the community.

Nexton’s Midtown Club has a 24-hour fitness center, pickleball, tennis, basketball courts, and food truck space. And there’s a co-working office when you need a break from the home office.

Entertainment and dining options cater to everyone’s tastes, including Taco Boy, Halls Chophouse, and Bkedshop Donuts, to name a few.

Just about everything can be taken care of at Nexton. The community has plenty of places to shop for the essentials. Several healthcare and professional service companies are available for residents. And Nexton is powered by fiber internet, so fast, reliable service will connect your New Leaf home.
