1. It’s more than a community: it’s a retreat!
You’ll feel welcomed home as soon as you turn past the red brick sign, wrought-iron fences and upscale water feature of The Retreat At Storm Branch. The surrounding woodlands, walking trails and designated green space give you that “remote” feeling, even though you are just minutes from all the conveniences you could ever need.
2. The home sites are HUGE!
With homes ranging from 2,366-4,577 square feet in size — often sitting on several acres of land, this community offers rare size and space for your family to spread their wings and build a life.
3. The interiors boast high-quality elegance.
Bill Beazley Homes are built to endure the ages, with timeless design that includes: exposed beams, crown molding, wainscoting, recessed ceilings, hardwood floors, granite countertops, European-stained cabinets, and open floor plans that maximize space.
4. Homes are spacious with side-entry garages.
A side-entry garage is nice because it makes your home look like all living space and offers great curb appeal. It allows for full green space and gardening to come right up to the house, so you are welcomed HOME (rather than welcomed to your garage).
5. Rural homes are minutes to downtown Aiken & Augusta.
Even though it feels like you are “away from it all” in our community, it is really only 23 minutes to downtown Aiken and 27 minutes to Augusta. We have a lot of residents that commute to Fort Gordon, the Savannah River Site, area hospitals and the universities for work. We also have a number of residents who opt to retire here, where it is quiet and peaceful.
6. Recreation: You can bike to Boyd Pond Park.
Boyd Pond Park sits adjacent from this community. This 210-acre county park has miles of hiking, walking and mountain-biking trails. There is also a 30-acre fishing pond, picnic tables, and playgrounds. What a nice, scenic spot right in your own backyard!
7. Protective covenants ensure everlasting value.
Our active Home Owner’s Association works hard to ensure that your home maintains its value throughout the years. Other neighborhoods may have homes that fall into disrepair, rusty cars sitting out front, brown grass, lawns littering with kids toys, or other eyesores — but not our community!
8. Quick commutes to Savannah River Site & Bridgestone.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site is one of Aiken, South Carolina’s largest employers with more than 10,000 employees. The massive nuclear facility spans 310 square miles and is conveniently located less than 30 minutes from The Retreat At Storm Branch.
Bridgestone is another well-paying job in the area that is in the process of adding another 850 manufacturing jobs to the area by 2020. The Retreat at Storm Branch is just 18 minutes from the facility.
9. There are versatile designs.
Homes here come in single and two-story layouts. Seven different floorplans will give you anywhere from 3 bed/2.5 baths to 6 bed/4.5 baths, depending on your needs and preferences. There are move-in ready homes, as well as homes you may customize to your liking at our Design Center.
10. The rural atmosphere is comfortable.
Perhaps the top reason buyers select The Retreat At Storm Branch is the atmosphere. People like that the homes are nestled in friendly Aiken County, one of the largest horse-training areas in the country, with the Aiken Trials in March and the subsequent Aiken Triple Crown Steeplechase located here. Horse-lovers are surrounded by stable options and horse culture.
