Essex Homes Announces Sale of First $1 Million Home

Fairfax at Turner's Pointe
Essex Homes is proud to announce the sale of the company’s first $1 million home. Located at Turner’s Pointe in Lexington, the home featured the Fairfax floor plan and was sold for $1,045,734.

Offering four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the Fairfax plan spans nearly 5,000 square feet. This home plan was created by Essex Homes specifically for this community and in particular, the spacious, lakefront home site it was located on. The plan was developed during a year-long process with the requirements of having open living areas and an abundance of windows to capture the views of Lake Murray from every room.
“We worked diligently to ensure that the home we built on this piece of land adequately matched its surroundings and didn’t squander the incredible views,” said Mike Cancilla, division president of Essex Homes. “This is a fantastic community with outstanding amenities, and we believe that, coupled with the home itself and its location, made it the perfect place to begin building $1 million-plus homes.”

The Fairfax home was sold just four months into the construction process by Sales Agent Amanda Holgate with Paradigm Real Estate Group. The family purchasing the home fell in love with the floor plan, the community’s location and fantastic amenities, and the local schools their children will now attend.

Plenty of planning and preparation went into the construction of this home that ultimately allowed Essex to reach this milestone.
