The Oakfield neighborhood on Johns Island adds amenity park

The Oakfield community located at 2924 Gin Bay Road, has added a resort-style pool, putting green and yard game area for residents. The master-planned community comprised of Centex and Pulte homes also has walking trails, a picnic pavilion, playgrounds and two parks.

“We received a lot of input from consumer groups when deciding what the community amenity would look and feel like in Oakfield,” said Centex General Sales Manager Jacob Reynolds. “All kinds of great ideas came out and collectively everyone wanted a social hub and game spot that could double for birthday parties and neighborhood get-togethers in a village-like setting.”

The brightly-colored one and two-storied homes have open layouts and porches, ranging in size from 1,500 to more than 3,000 square feet. From the mid $200,000 to mid-$400,000, they are three to seven bedroom and two to five bathrooms. A new phase opened in April.
