McKee Homes has recently opened three new communities in the Wilmington, NC area that feature our single-story floorplans from Epcon. With two additional Epcon floorplan communities in the works, McKee Homes is dedicated to developing Wilmington, NC single-story homes.
Epcon homes have an open-concept design with minimal steps between indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patios and courtyards are made for entertaining or as a private retreat. The low-maintenance, single-story designs with wide doorways and halls are ideal for 55+ home buyers.
For those that need more living space, our Epcon Bungalow elevations include a second-story guest suite with full bath and an optional kitchenette.
A recent Wilmington Business Journal article quoted Pat McKee, owner of McKee Homes, as saying, “There’s a huge contingency of people that constantly move in every year looking to retire in the Wilmington area. For the most part, we have found that builders are building houses for everybody, but they’re not doing the best of jobs building homes for retirees.
“The retirees that are coming down, the active adults, they’re settling for the homes that are out there … and hopefully that works for them. There’s very little all one-story product. … The homes that we’re building are catered toward that market and allow people to age in place.”
McKee Homes Epcon floorplans available in the Wilmington, NC area vary by community, but they all start in the low $300’s and range from 1,681 to 3,092 sq. ft.
