Behind the Scenes at The Preserve at Weatherby in Woolwich Twp, NJ!
We’re eagerly anticipating our first hard hat tour of the new models at The Preserve at Weatherby this weekend. But Remy just couldn’t wait… so he took a behind the scenes look at what’s happening. Here’s his scouting report...
The Jaxson and The Piper model homes are coming along nicely. In addition to sticking his nose into various corners, Remy got to see the McKee quality that’s behind the walls - including our superior construction and our whole-house energy-efficient materials. We think you’ll be just as impressed as he was!
Join the VIP list for an exclusive “Remy” peek at what’s going on behind the scenes!
Or better yet, join us for the Hard Hat Tour scheduled for March 10th. The Model Grand Opening will be later this Spring. We’ll have updates and progress photos, so check back often! Don’t wait too long, though - these homes won’t last long! Come in and choose the McKee home of your dreams at The Preserve at Weatherby today!
The Laurel plan at Bay Bridge Cove!
When Remy went to visit the Laurel model at Bay Bridge Cove, we weren’t sure he was coming back! To say he loved this home might be the understatement of the year. (No exaggeration - just say “Laurel” and his tail starts wagging!)
It’s not hard to see why Remy was blown away, either! The gorgeous Laurel model has an open floor plan, making it feel so airy inside. With 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a 2-car garage, this plan is spacious, yet welcoming. The open great room, kitchen, and dining area are the heart of the home, and feature tons of natural light thanks to all the windows! (You know how Remy feels about sunny spots. In this home, he had soooo many to choose from!) The Laurel has a roomy master suite, with a walk-in closet and private bathroom. The second bedroom, and another full bath, are on the other side of the foyer for a bit of privacy.
There are so many options for The Laurel… you won’t know where to start! You can choose from a sunroom or screened in porch, a 2nd floor loft (with plenty of room for overnight guests - like Remy-sized canines, for example), a sitting room in the master suite, a den, a fireplace… the list goes on! Starting at 1,701 square feet, The Laurel is priced from $383,900.
In addition to breathtaking homes, the Bay Bridge Cove lifestyle will include an amazing clubhouse, as well as proximity to the Eastern Shore, and an incomparable Kent Island location!
Remy's Picks - Fly, Eagles, Fly!
Remy’s always had a keen eye for the paws-down best picks, and it looks like his football team is no exception! He’s been barking about the Philadelphia Eagles all season long!
Perhaps it’s due to his favorite past time of unsuccessfully chasing birds throughout the backyard, or it could simply be the fact that the great city of Philly is so close by, but Remy has always said “winning is for the birds!”
Remy’s older, wiser cousin, Trippe, has warned him it’s been a rough couple of years as an Eagles’ fan, but everyone knows there’s nothing more unwavering than a dog’s loyalty. He’s spent some frustrating seasons growling and barking at the TV, but Remy reassured him that in the end, there’s nothing better than an underdog story!
Next stop: the Super Bowl!
Luckily for Remy and his cousins, Judson, Piper and Trippe, they were able to avoid the mall crowds and forgo Underdog masks this postseason, and no one even noticed!
The squad is all together in anticipation of the big game, breaking out jerseys of their past and current favs- Sproles, Wentz, Dawkins, and McNabb! They look good in their green, but it’s the Patriots who are going to be green with envy as the Eagles shutdown their chances of a repeat on Sunday. We’d take a retriever over a GOAT any day!
Remy’s used to that Super-Bowl-bound feeling when it comes to scoring big with his quality McKee homes, but now he’s ready for the real deal. Hopefully, we’ll see you at the parade!
Remy’s Pick – Staying Overnight at Champions’ Club!
One of our unique features at Champions’ Club in Magnolia is that potential homebuyers can spend a night at our private guest house and experience all the community has to offer before they buy. Recently, Remy decided it was his turn to have a sleepover. And boy, did he have a blast!
He thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of the spectacular Augusta model with all of its luxury features. But not content to lounge by the fireplace all day, he ventured over to the clubhouse where he met some of the neighbors and got a close-up look at the fitness center and other amenities. (Remy’s planning a return stay when the weather warms up and he can go hang by the pool!)
The Overnight Stay also includes a personal community tour with a McKee sales manager. Have all your questions answered while you tour the community, its extensive amenities, and the beautifully designed model homes. (Don’t forget to ask about our customization opportunities, too!) There’s also a One-on-One Q&A session, giving you the chance to talk to your sales manager in-depth about settlement dates, available home sites, financing options, mortgage rates, and more.
The Overnight Stay is the perfect way to sample our incredible 55+ lifestyle and see first-hand why homeowners love this wonderful community. Come be our guest… Reserve your stay today! Call Ed Hackett at 215-874-8513 for available dates and details. (A $75 service charge will be levied to first time guests. No service charge for returning visitors. Service charge will be applied to purchase price of new home.)
And if you see Remy ambling around, say hi!
Remy’s Pick – The Interiors at The Preserve at Weatherby
Remy was beyond excited to explore the interiors of our new plans at The Preserve at Weatherby! These gorgeous homes feature open, airy designs, with combined kitchen/great room/dining room living spaces. Plus, they can be customized to fit any lifestyle. Take your pick of sunrooms and screened-in porches, second floor lofts and finished basements. Personally, Remy’s all about the screened-in porch!
The Remington has 1,754 square feet of living space, with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a 2-car attached garage. Remy LOVES the huge great room – and the fact that this model was named after him! (Fun Fact: The Piper and The Tucker are also named after McKee Family Dogs!) There’s plenty of space for a roomy sofa, a comfy chair, even a nook for reading, sewing or a piano. The Remington also has an option for a fireplace in the great room, a third bedroom or a front porch.
The Tucker has 1,498 square feet of living space, with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a 2-car garage. This plan is spacious and welcoming, with an open great room, kitchen, and dining room. The sunny spot by the sliding doors between the dining room and the great room is Remy’s favorite napping locale. This plan has an option for a fireplace in the great room, too!
The model homes currently being built at The Preserve are The Jaxson and The Piper. The Jaxson has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a 2-car garage. The Piper features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a 2-car garage. There are interior & exterior renderings for the plans on our website. Join the VIP list for an exclusive peek at what’s going on behind the scenes!

Remy’s Picks – Sunsets at Bay Bridge Cove!
Like everyone else, Remy loves a good sunset. So when he heard that the sunsets at Bay Bridge Cove were rocking, he headed to Kent Island, Maryland. And he was not disappointed!
While he was checking out the gorgeous views of the water, Remy also took in the local scenery. Since Bay Bridge Cove is quite literally a minute from the beautiful Chesapeake Bay, scenic coastal living is one of the definite highlights of this community. There‘s beach access less than a mile away, and marinas just around the corner! (Great news for boating enthusiasts – and this water-loving canine!)
For the fishing, hiking and biking crowd, there are miles of trails and nature centers.
And if you’re a fan of great food and fun, you’ll love the restaurants, shopping and music just up the road on the Kent Narrows. There are also local wineries, distilleries, and a year-round farmer’s market.
Bay Bridge Cove features villa-style homes priced from the $330’s. The Clubhouse is already under construction, so itwon’t be long residents can enjoy endless activities!
Come see the sunsets and the scenery for yourself! The Bay Bridge Cove Sales Center is located at 550 Kent Manor Drive, Stevensville, Maryland. It’s open Tues. - Sat. from 10AM - 5PM, and Sun. & Mon. from 12 - 5PM.
Remy’s Picks – Sunny Spots & More Living Space
While McKee homes are designed to be spacious and comfortable, we also have a number of structural options that add to your comfort level. Remy’s favorite spots tend to involve food or cozy places to nap, so he’s a big fan of our sunrooms, screened porches, and morning rooms.
Added to our standard floorplans, these rooms are adjacent to the open kitchen/family room area at the back of the home. Our sunrooms and screened porches have cathedral ceilings, with optional skylights, and lovely views of the surrounding area.
Whether you want a sunny spot to have coffee or a comfortable outdoor space for three seasons of the year, McKee has just what you’re looking for! Our sunrooms, morning rooms or screened porches are definitely popular options in our communities. And they’re an easy way to add more living space to your new McKee home. (And plentiful sunny spots for your pets!)
Remy's Pick September 20, 2017
Remy’s Picks – Life’s a beach at The Grove!
Like many of our friends and neighbors, Remy celebrated the end of summer with a trip to the shore! His beach destination? The Grove, our community on Fenwick Island, Delaware.
The Grove at Fenwick Island is our newest neighborhood, offering luxury townhomes just minutes from everything you love about life at the beach. We’ve just started building the model, so Remy spent his time exploring the island. Much to his delight, The Grove is minutes from Fenwick Island State Park, crabbing and clamming in the Little Assawoman Bay, and mini-golf, water rides and boardwalk concessions at Viking Golf/Thunder Lagoon Waterpark. (Remy loves a good round of mini-golf… so many balls to chase!)
Dog lovers: Remy would like to note that while the beach towns of southern Delaware are very pet-friendly, there are state & local laws that prohibit dogs from being allowed on beaches & boardwalks. For instance, pets are allowed in Fenwick Island State Park, but they are prohibited from all beaches from May to September. In general, dogs must be on a leash, well-behaved and cleaned-up after at all times.
The Grove’s location is ideal, offering a relaxed, peaceful vibe, with unspoiled beaches and a quaint downtown. Residents enjoy a quality of life that you can only find in a small, friendly town such as Fenwick Island. No big crowds, less noise & chaos – and water everywhere! (That last one is from Remy. He is a water-loving retriever, after all!)
While close to the beach, The Grove is far enough that our prices will be more affordable. The townhomes will feature trademark McKee quality, sophisticated finishes, and incredible details. While there will be a community fire pit/gathering area and a pocket park, there will not be a pool or clubhouse, so the HOA fees will considerably less than in surrounding communities.
Three floor plans will be available at The Grove at Fenwick Island. Prices will start from the upper $200’s.

Remy's Pick September 6, 2017
Remy’s Picks – Let’s visit The Preserve at Weatherby!
As Remy celebrates his first birthday, he’s marking this major milestone by hitting the road and visiting more of our 55+ communities. First up: The Preserve at Weatherby in Woolwich Township, New Jersey!
The Preserve at Weatherby is a unique neighborhood, a chance to own a brand new, maintenance-free home in an established clubhouse community. Remy particularly enjoys the area’s rustic beauty, along with the resort-style amenities – including the pool complex and the gorgeous, already-built clubhouse bustling with fun and social activities!
Weatherby’s location is ideal, offering easy access to Rt. 295, 322, the NJ Turnpike and the AC Expressway. (Remy got here in no time at all!) It’s a snap to visit family and friends, commute to work, or explore the surrounding areas. Plus, retail shops (like Pet Value!), medical facilities (including veterinarians!), and parks (So many trees... and grass… and trees!) are only minutes away. The culture and fun of Philadelphia and Wilmington are only 30 minutes away, and the New Jersey beaches are just under an hour.
There are four distinct floor plans available at The Preserve at Weatherby, ranging from 1,498 to 1,796 square feet. Prices start at $299,900, and customization is always available.
Join the VIP list for information about our models, floor plans, and clubhouse amenities. Or call Ed Hackett at 215-874-4926 to set up an appointment.

Remy's Pick January 15th 2017
Remy's First Pick for 2017 is the Clubhouse Interior Makeover at Champions' Club.
We recently did an interior update of the hear of the community!

Another example of how McKee Builders listens to our homeowners and cares about the longevity of our communities.
Remy's Pick January 17th 2017
Remy's Second Pick for 2017 is the Kipling Quick Delivery at Spring Arbor!
Remy's Pick is in and it is our Kipling Quick Delivery priced at $360,615.
This popular 2 bed, 2 bath home comes with an extended great room allowing for additional dining or entertaining area.
The added sunroom, granite counter tops in the kitchen and the beautiful wood floors are just some of the upgrades in this home.
This is a great opportunity to buy a home in the final phase of development, and avoid buying in a community that will be a construction zone for the next couple years.
