New Designer Models Showcase Signature Portfolio Designs

In recent weeks, John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods has opened several new Designer Model homes throughout the Southeast.  These homes showcase the thoughtful details and features that come with every new home design from the John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods Signature Portfolio.

The Dawson Designer Model | Traditions at Wake ForestIn Wake Forest, NC, master-planned club neighborhood Traditions is home to our new Dawson Designer Model. This charming, traditionally-inspired home from the Signature Portfolio’s Heritage Collection welcomes visitors with its broad, two-story porches. Inside, a gracious foyer, flanked by a formal dining room and convenient guest suite, opens to the spacious main living areas where the great room, kitchen and breakfast room combine and easily expand outdoors onto the large screened porch. The kitchen is a gourmet’s delight expertly combining beauty and ease of use. An open design keeps everything easily at hand while the large farm sink, gourmet line stainless steel appliances and dove gray island set against crisp white cabinetry create a current yet classic style. Upstairs, the owner’s suite is an inviting retreat with its own private sitting room. The owner’s spa invites indulgence combining an oversized dual vanity, gleaming glass and tile shower and freestanding soaking tub. The large bonus room is perfect for media or games as is the finished third floor walk-up which offers even more flexible space upstairs. See more of The Dawson Designer Model at Traditions at


Another dynamic new design is now open at Nexton in Summerville, SC just 25 minutes from downtown Charleston. The new Clearwing Designer Model is Lowcountry luxury at its best with large porches and floor to ceiling windows inviting the outdoors in. The home’s deep rocking chair porches set a relaxed tone, giving way to a large foyer and dining room, connected directly to the kitchen through a must-have butler’s pantry making entertaining a breeze. Just beyond, the great room unfolds in all directions overlooking the island kitchen, sunny breakfast room, cozy sunroom and spacious screened porch. For those warm Charleston evenings, the private courtyard adjacent to the screened porch is a perfect setting to dine under the stars or relax by the stone fireplace. The kitchen is soft and classic with gray paneled cabinetry set against crisp, bright countertops and a contrasting work island. Upstairs, the owner’s suite is distinguished by its deeply coffered ceiling with inlaid panels of richly stained shiplap. The owner’s spa combines a glass shower with tile bench and a separate soaking tub with a striking mosaic tile deck surround.  The second floor loft is a perfect place to gather for work or play while the finished third floor walk-up is outfitted as comfortably private guest quarters. See more of The Clearwing Designer Model at Nexton at
