Essex Homes is consistently one of the largest builders in the greater Columbia area and has branched out into North Carolina as well. In the Midlands, they build new homes in Columbia, Irmo, Lexington, NE Columbia/Blythewood and Chapin, SC. Through their eBuilt program, they became one of the first builders in the area to build highly efficient new homes with certified HERS ratings. This can potentially save homeowners hundreds of dollars per year in utility bills.
Please note that as of 2020, Essex Homes was bought by Stanley Martin Homes. They still offer many of the models that made Essex Homes so popular. View new homes for sale by Stanley Martin Homes below.
