What? Everything I have seen says there are a TON of building restrictions and a list of builders. All plans must pass the Architectural Control Committee.

We were there today. We purchased a plot of land. The homes will be in the range of 215 to 350 dollars per square foot. The land will run you anywhere from 173k to 280k. It's going to be a gated community with an incredible layout. Hope this helps!

Can you please explain to me what could possibly be so good about this place that you would be willing to pay up to $350. a square foot??? For that kind of money I want sweeping mountain views, waterfalls. skyline penthouse type views, ocean views with waves crashing outside on my private beach - THAT would maybe make $350. a square foot worth it to me. I am not trying to be ugly, please don't take my question that way. I sincerely want to know - is it just because you CAN spend this much, or is there something there really making it worth that much to you?

I agree with lovesmountains. While Bretagne looks like it will be beautiful with great amenities, for $350 a sq ft I'd want to be on a golf course, ocean, etc. I think you could even get into Longview for less than that or about that much.

Yeah, that doesn't sound right.

Most custom builders are between $150-225 a square.

There's a thing called "difference". Why do people spend 150K on a Mercedes CLK AMG; same goes for a 20K Bulgari watch or a 1.5Million dollar 1400sqft condo at Rosewood at the corner of Providence/Sharon Amity. If you can afford it why not? Myers Park nor Rosewood has nice views, but they both fetch quite a bit of $$$!

If things keeping going our way, me and the misses hope to be in Bretagne in a few years.

But my question is, WHAT is the difference? What is so wonderful about Bretagne that someone would be willing to build a home there that cost them $350 a square foot? I understand about the differences in quality of things - like a Mercedes versus a Ford, but what "qaualities" make Bretagne worth that to someone?

This should be in the SC forum anyway since it's in SC.
