CHARLOTTE, N.C. (January 12, 2017) – New home builder, Saussy Burbank, returned from the annual International Builder Show in Orlando with a Best in American Living™ Award (BALA). The company won the gold award for its Riverwalk (Rock Hill, SC) model, The Huntington.
“The BALA award is one of our industry’s highest honors,” said Bob Zweier, President of Saussy Burbank. “We are thrilled to win our third BALA award and honored to be recognized for our focus on craftsmanship and design.”
The 2,704-square-foot, two-story Huntington model is an open floor plan with four bedrooms and three full baths. Designed in partnership with Charlotte-based 505 Design Group, the architectural style is a “raised river cottage” and it welcomes visitors with a low-slung front porch, bracketed eaves and details at every scale.
The interior was designed with young families in mind with a master suite and secondary bedrooms upstairs. The open kitchen, breakfast and family rooms are wrapped with windows, flooding the space with natural light.
The model was decorated by Susan Hill, Saussy Burbank’s interior designer. Local Rock Hill artist, Harriet Goode, curated the artwork in the house with a combination of her personal work, pieces from her private collection and works from other local and nationally acclaimed artists.
Riverwalk is a $600 million master-planned community on the banks of the Catawba River in Rock Hill. The community is a paradise for the outdoors with over three miles of riverfront trails, seven miles of mountain bike trails and two world-class cycling amenities. Riverwalk’s River District features a mix of offices, shops and restaurants and is just a walk or bike ride away from every home in the community.
Saussy Burbank has built in some of the finest neighborhoods in the Carolinas, including Baxter Village in Fort Mill, S.C. (for which Saussy Burbank won a BALA in 2013), Carolina Park in Mt Pleasant, SC and Briar Chapel in Chapel Hill, NC. The company is also known for its infill development in historic neighborhoods such as Myers Park and Dilworth in Charlotte, NC, Old Village in Mt Pleasant, SC and Hayes-Barton in Raleigh, NC.
