Featured Homeowners: Meet Nancy and Greg!
October 15, 2020
Our expertly designed homes, first-rate amenities, and beachside location make Bay Bridge Cove a remarkable place to call home — but it’s the people who live here that are the heart and soul of our community. Every day, our team is beyond thankful for each homeowner who trusted us to build their place in the world.
This week, we’re especially excited to introduce you to Nancy and Greg, a couple who’s loving their new, laid-back lifestyle here at Bay Bridge Cove! Take a look at their story of how they got here, how they built their home, and what they love about their life on Kent Island.
What’s your McKee story? Tell us about what brought you here, what made you fall in love, and anything special about your experience.
We knew we wanted to be on Kent Island, so we sold our house and looked for a place to live. Initially, we didn’t think we wanted new construction, mostly because of the price and wait time. But the McKee team was flexible and really worked with us to make our home fit our needs. There was good pricing and great home designs. And if we ever had a problem, they were so quick to respond. We really loved the low-maintenance living aspect of the community. We’ve now been here for 3 years.
Why did you decide to build a new home versus buy a used home?
Everything is brand new, which means it has a long life span. We got to pick everything out which was fun! We really liked McKee’s standard options and quality choices.
Why did you decide to build your new home with McKee Builders? How was your experience throughout the construction process (with the sales team, construction team, etc.)?
We loved the sales team. They were so friendly and great about answering questions, and they never made us feel like we were bothering them. You can tell that they want to help you customize your home to your desires, and they were great about doing extra changes. The construction team was also really friendly and approachable.
Why did you decide to move to Bay Bridge Cove? Was the location important to your decision?
We wanted to be near the water (as well as near our friends)! There are a lot of fun venues and waterfront restaurants here, which makes it such a nice place to be.
Which floor plan do you live in? What do you love most and what would you change if you could?
Our first home at Bay Bridge Cove was the Easton. We’re in the process of moving to a different spot within the community because we want more room, and we’re going with the Oxford layout. This plan has a bigger kitchen, which is better suited for entertaining. With the Oxford, everything has its own area, so nothing feels too cramped.
Did McKee give you enough choices to make your new home reflect your lifestyle?
In order to add more square footage to the master bathroom and closet, we went into the dining room a bit and pushed out the great room. We also moved the placement of the upstairs bathroom to not take up so much space and keep that area more open.
What amenities and clubs do you enjoy in your community? How is your daily lifestyle different after living here? What is it like meeting new friends here?
There are a ton of opportunities to socialize with neighbors. We love hanging out by the pool and grill (and the Crab Shack nearby is great). The clubhouse is incredible — several neighbors got together and rented it out for Thanksgiving celebrations with families. We’re big fans of the billiard room and exercise area.
How was your experience working with your sales team member?
Kathy and Janna were so wonderful! We’re taking them to lunch!
What are you most looking forward to in your new home?
Definitely the screened-in porch on the pond.
Would you recommend McKee Builders to friends and family? What would you tell them?
Yes. We highly recommend them as a builder. They’re very responsive to customers, will customize any layout to your needs, and they want you to be happy and feel valued. We have nice features and great standard options (not like with other builders, who give you bare walls and everything else is a la carte). McKee offers good value, quality construction, and options.
We want to thank Nancy and Greg for choosing Bay Bridge Cove! We’re so happy to know that they’re enjoying their time here. For more information about our beautiful homes on Kent Island and to schedule a virtual appointment, contact us at 215-600-4871.
