Carnes Crossroads - A Planned Urban Development with a little history
The History of Carnes Crossroads and its new Urban Development
This planned urban development is a little different from the others. When I visited the information center, I was informed that the green historic barn (known as the Dallas V. Carnes barn -an early 20th-century property owner who farmed this tract of land.) is the centerpiece of a Carnes Crossroads recreational amenity and includes a 25-meter pool, complete with beach entry and a splash and play area for kids.
This barn was moved a few hundred yards from its original location at Highway 176 and 17-A to a location near the Carnes Crossroads Information Center in 2009 and was restored. This barn was originally built and owned by Howard C. Prettyman, who appears to have built the barn in the late 1930s. The roof had some wind damage and some of the foundation piles exhibited damage from a termite infestation but wasn’t in too bad of shape due to regular maintenance.
Carnes Crossroads was conceptualized to be a community like Daniel Island with a small town feel that has retail, parks, trails, and corporate offices. The community combines residential neighborhoods, parks, trails and lakes, medical facilities, shopping, and dining.
Carnes Crossroads has a builder’s row like Nexton - Brighton Park Village and includes the information center and model homes and offices for Pulte homes, Eastman homes, Sable homes, and David Weekley homes so you can visit each easily and discover the best home options for you.
