New Fort Mill Restaurant Opening Coming Later This Year

 

The Rock Hill Herald recently ran an article talking about a new Fort Mill restaurant opening coming later this year, and The Linda Hall Team of Century 21 First Choice wanted you to know about it. We are excited to see new business in the area, and this one will be located at the retail center at 1852 SC 160. There are also two other restaurants coming there besides this one which are Chipolte and Kung Fu Tea.

Okay. Well, it’s time to share with you the name of this restaurant which is “Five Guys!” Five Guys is known for its handmade burgers and hand-cut fries. They have over 1700 locations worldwide, and Fort Mill will soon be one of those locations.

They will be renting a 2500 square foot space leaving over 6000 commercial space available for further business at this retail center, and we’re sure it will be filled. As soon as we know what else is coming, we will be sure to share the news with you either by this blog and/or our newsletter.

Long Cove Is A Wonderful Part Of The Lake Wylie Experience

Have you heard of Long Cove? Many have not. It is located on the banks of Lake Wylie. The Linda Hall Team thinks our friends might be interested in the opportunities Long Cove offers their visitors.

 

For starters, you will be able to stay in a "tiny" house that is typically less than 400 square feet designed to utilize the space it has most efficiently. Tiny home living is becoming more and more popular. Still, most have decided they need more space for their year around living accommodations and leave the tiny living dreams to their vacations with the pandemic. So it is a definite win for Long Cove.

 

You will find they are pretty accommodating, with units ranging from one to two bedrooms, and some have additional loft space. It is excellent for families with kids. You will not need to bring your own bedding as it is provided. Each unit also offers a fully stocked kitchenette and  AC, a TV, and WI-FI. What more could you ask?

 

The exterior premises offer swimming in a semi-Olympic pool and woods to explore as well as a fairy garden to discover. If you get tired, rest yourself on one of the Adirondack chairs found throughout the property. You also do not need to cook every meal. You will find plenty of choices at the waterside Snack Shack and nearby restaurants. If you want to get out on the water, you can choose from the available kayaks, or you can opt to rent a houseboat. There are two available slips in reserve for the visitors' houseboats.

 

The development plans include converting the resort's pool to saltwater, adding a 15-foot heated jacuzzi, and creating a labyrinth on one of the hillsides overlooking the lake. There are also plans for a waterside bar, eatery, bathhouse, and a 3,400 square foot out-look deck! So much to come!! Long Cove is becoming the staycation spot for locals and the destination spot for out-of-town visitors!! We can see why!!

 

Contact The Linda Hall Team of Century 21 First Choice for all your real estate needs and any local information you may need if you consider moving to the area. We've helped many people outside of our area and would love to add you to the list.

Let's Purchase A Home On Lake Wylie!

Many people who live in the area or just visit are drawn to the beautiful Lake Wylie waters! It's easily become one of the fastest-growing areas of York County and for good reason. One is never bored when on the lake and as the saying goes, "If one is lucky enough to live on a lake then one is lucky enough!"

If you can't live ON the water than near enough to pop your boat in may be all you need. Tube down the Catawba River which leads out onto Lake Wylie or put your boat in at the Buster Boyd Access Area which is located at 310 Blucher Circle, Lake Wylie. 

Fishing on the waters of Lake Wylie is definitely a popular attraction. You'll find that activity being accomplished from the docks to kayaks and motorboats. Lake Wylie is home to largemouth bass, crappie, catfish, bluegill, hybrid tried bass, smallmouth bass, and white bass. In the spring you'll find black crappie being fished. Lake Wylie really is a dream for all levels of fishing. 

Have we enticed you enough to investigate this area yet? Let us know if you have any interest in living on or near Lake Wylie because The Linda Hall Team would love to become a part of finding your next dream home! Start your search with our interactive map tool.

Big News For The Fort Mill Community

The Rock Hill Herald just broke a story that could impact Fort Mill in a big way, and The Linda Hall Team, Century 21 First Choice, is right on top of it! It's been reported that there is a proposal the Fort Mill Town Planning Commission is going to review today, and they will either be making a recommendation for it or against it. 

Crossroads Development Partners have submitted a proposal to develop approximately 115 acres on Fort Mill Parkway. According to the Herald, the site is at North Dobys Bride and Williams Roads. The plan would include up to 220 independent and assisted-living memory care units, 150 age-restricted homes, 90 age-restricted townhomes, and 240,000 square feet of commercial space. 

They include a 50,000 square foot grocery store and more than 150,000 combined square feet of office and retail space in these plans. 

The development agreement indicates a ten-year timeline for the buildout, with half of the property being developed in the first five years. 

The council members seem to be leaning towards it except for the road issue. We know that this is a big issue for our area, and we'll see how it is resolved. Read more about this from the Rock Hill Herald's article - (Subscription needed)
