Fort Mill, S.C., is going to get a new flavor of apartment soon: “Farmhouse chic.”

That’s how national developer Miller-Valentine Group describes its new venture, Beckett Farms. Located near Gold Hill Road and Interstate 77, the development will cover 33 acres and include 280 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Construction has started, and the first apartments at the new development are expected to be complete in May 2017.

“We’re thrilled to bring upscale apartment living to Fort Mill, with a farmhouse chic aesthetic,” said Charles Rulick, vice president of conventional multi-family development for Miller-Valentine, in a statement. “From the architecture to the interior design to the amenities, we wanted to thoughtfully create an apartment community that blended the pastoral setting of Fort Mill with the latest in luxury urban design.”

The location is in a fast-growing corner of Fort Mill, near the new headquarters for Lash Group and LPL Financial, two firms that relocated from Charlotte and are expected to bring thousands of jobs.

This is Miller-Valentine’s first luxury apartment development in the Carolinas, where the firm has done commercial projects and affordable housing.

The apartments at Beckett Farms will include balconies, “farmhouse-inspired fixtures and lighting,” washers and dryers, and kitchens with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Amenities will include a saltwater pool, a clubhouse, outdoor grills, a gym and pocket parks throughout the property.

Axiom Architecture, Design Resource Group and Vignette Interior Design designed the project, while CF Evans Construction will build Beckett Farms.
