Simonini plans swank homes on small lots near the Teeter


Aug. 18. Custom homebuilder Simonini Homes is planning a new development with 22 upscale houses facing a central green space or park on the long-vacant block between the Harris Teeter on Jetton Road and Charlestowne Road.

The homes planned are in the $500,000-plus range, pegging the project’s total value at well over $11 million. The 5.6 acre parcel has been fallow for roughly 20 years. It was initially planned for commercial.

Zillow says the median home price in Cornelius is $243,000.

The property was originally zoned for office, dating back to when the shopping center and adjacent town homes were built in the mid-1990s.

The houses in Jetton Cove at Charles Towne Lane are expected to be 2,800 square feet to 3,800 square feet. Builder Alan Simonini is well known for building luxury homes during Charlotte’s housing boom the 1990s and 2000s.

Simonini Builders was dissolved in 2010 some two years after the housing market virtually collapsed. Some of the Simonini Builders executives then formed Classica Homes, the developer of the highly successful Robbins Park neighborhood. The two companies, Simonini Builders and Classica, are not related.

Cornelius Planning Director Wayne Herron said the new Simonini project is in keeping with current land-use policy, which kept it at four units per acre.

The park will be 132 feet by 132 feet, a little less than half an acre.

The owner of the property is Best Equity Ventures Organization, of Dallas, Texas. Matt Langston of Langston Design Group in Charlotte did the land plan.

The typical lot dimensions will be a minimum of 46 feet wide by about 90 feet deep. Setbacks are 10 feet on the front, 3 feet on the sides, and 20 feet in the rear. Every lot is configured to where garages will be accessed from the rear off of alleys.

There will be no on street parking on Jetton Road or Charles Towne Lane.
