Cline Homes

THERE-S A NEW KID ON THE BLOCK —actually two kids and their father. Cline Homes is a family-owned and operated business and, though its owners have been in town only a short time, they already have gained the respect of their peers in the residential building field.

Stu Cline claims to be retired, but that-s not the message he transmits when he speaks about his current projects. The former president and chief executive officer of America-s 18th largest building company, he and his two sons entered the Charleston market as experienced players. Jeff and Scott bring field and technological experience to the table, having worked in Atlanta for two national builders.

The move to Charleston was an easy choice for the Cline family. Stu, who has been visiting the area for nearly two decades and owns a cottage at Kiawah, was quite familiar with the area. They didn-t want to compete with the custom builders or the volume builders, so their niche is between the two. They recognized a market segment that was not wellserved and decided to fill that need.

Having selected their market niche, the Clines decided to offer three products to those buyers—the Charleston Classic series, inspired by the Charleston single house; the Southeast Traditional series, under construction at The Club at Legend Oaks in Summerville; and the Craftsman Cottage series.

Cloudbreak Court, which features the Charleston Classic series, is a small neighborhood in James Island with a rural feel but close proximity to downtown Charleston and the beach. All homes have spacious porches, and sidewalks circle the perimeter of the subdivision, encouraging pedestrian traffic and a family-friendly atmosphere. Cloudbreak Court offers a variety of floor plans and unusual flexibility in design and detail, and Cline Homes doesn-t stint on quality, either, using materials and products from a select group of nationally recognized brand names.

"We have 24 lots in Cloudbreak," Stu explains. "Seven homes are under construction and the first is nearly complete. They-re designed for young professionals who want to be near downtown without the downtown price tag."

In addition to the homes at Cloudbreak Court, the company is building its Southeast Traditional series on 20 lots in The Club at Legend Oaks, which features higher-end homes in the 3,000 to 3,500-square-foot range.

"What do we want to be?" Stu muses. "In the next five to eight years, we-d like to build 80 to 100 homes per year with an average price of $400,000 to $600,000. Most importantly, we-d like to develop a high level of customer satisfaction."

The whole family agrees that if you choose Cline as your builder, you will not only love your new home, but you will also enjoy the building process.

"It-s what makes us different ... by design."
