A new 52-acre housing development that borders both the shores of Lake Murray and a popular local golf course is coming to Chapin.

WhiteWater Landing in Chapin will be developed by American Land Holdings based in Spotsylvania, Va. The new development is part of the company’s $40 million investment in three counties surrounding Lake Murray that also includes the recently developed Palmetto Pointe project in Saluda County and Stuart Landing in Newberry County. The investment represents an estimated $250 million in current and future custom home instruction, according to a news release.  

“It’s exciting that we finally get to get this going because design work started pre-COVID and it’s taken a good bit of time to get the design done right,” Dean Sinatra, American Land Holdings’ development partner, told SC Biz News.  “It’s a very unique location because it’s unusual to find a property that has both golf course frontage and waterfront recreational property tied together.”

The subdivision will offer views of holes 14 and 15 on the nearby Timberlake Golf Course as well as a stretch of the Lake Murray shoreline.

WhiteWater Landing will be located at 122 White Water Drive in Chapin. It is the last of what is known as the Timberlake property to be developed.

All of the properties within WhiteWater Landing will be single-family, custom-built homes. Sinatra said the neighborhood’s design is being planned to enable as much of the tree canopy and natural hardwood trees in the area to remain as possible.

“We’re really conscious of now wanting this to be a cookie cutter development and we’re finding that people really want that custom home community experience,” Sinatra said.

The new development is expected to appeal to three markets fueling growth in the Lake Murray area: empty-nesters, retirees and families.

“We are seeing customers move from larger metropolitan markets who are taking advantage of market conditions and the ability to buy a lot now and build their dream home later,” Sinatra said. “They have decided they want to live on the water and Lake Murray is an ideal location.”

An initial open house and sale of property in the development will be held on June 17. More information is available online.
