Meritus Signature Homes created the Mountain & Lake Collection for those who don’t wish to go through the often time-consuming process of designing a fully customized home. We save you the time spent on plan selection and design, building approvals and selecting a reliable contractor.
From planning and pre-construction through move-in, construction of each of the five Mountain & Lake plans is a turn-key process, completely managed by the Meritus team.
Designed to accentuate the best of Upstate living, each Mountain & Lake plan allows for main level living with open spaces and first floor master suites. At 2,500 – 3,000 heated square feet, the homes are a practical size for the empty-nester, retiree or even the growing family. Every square foot has been thoughtfully planned for maximum efficiency and aesthetics. All plans allow for ample storage space, screened porches, decks and oversized garages.
