Privacy Fences: A great privacy fence not only protects your family from the prying eyes of strangers. It can be great for security, too. Available in a variety of materials like vinyl and wood, privacy fences transform spaces like backyards into secluded hideaways. Ask Five Star Fence about decorative options, too, like post caps, coordinating gates, and lattice panel tops.
Picket Fences: If you want to capture the essence of Americana, a picket fence might be your best choice. One of the most beloved styles of all time, many picket fences come with heavy-duty vinyl and feature extra-wide posts with slimmer top and bottom rails. You can also choose from several stylish wooden picket fences to enhance your home's appearance.
Chain Link Fences: Chain link fencing is one of the most common, cost-effective ways to keep your property safe. Available in galvanized and aluminized options, you can also select vinyl coated colors like black and green. For extra security, Five Star Fence Company can install barbed wire and even automatic gates if needed.
Aluminum Fences: Often considered the ultimate combo of beauty, durability, and strength, aluminum fencing enhances your home's curb appeal and protects too. Warranted by the manufacturer for life, aluminum fences at Five Star Fence Company come in many colors and styles. We even have a variety of heights to pick from as well, including special order aluminum fences.
Wooden Fences: From heavy-duty lattice fences made with pressure-washed pine to traditional estate-style split-rail fencing, wooden fences are affordable and effective. But wood fences do more than fill a need - they add value and style to your home. Fenced-in yards are a hot commodity in today's real estate market and can boost the value of your home if you're looking to sell. In terms of ROI, wood fencing is near the top of the list. At Five Star Fence Company, our design team will work closely with you to install the wooden fence of your dreams.

Tatum here. Did you know there’s a new Viva Chicken location in Nexton? If you love chicken, Peruvian food, or exploring Nexton’s restaurant scene, this spot should be on your radar.
Viva Chicken is a Peruvian rotisserie chicken joint whose co-founder is from Peru. The menu includes bowls, salads, sandwiches, and rotisserie chicken or pollo a la brasa.
I recently got to check out the new location in Summerville. Keep reading for insider tips (read: what to order) + discover how you can Try This.
What we tried (with pricing):
I tried the quarter chicken with yuca + plantains ($9.55), the maracuya juice ($3.25), and a churro ($3.50). My pollo a la brasa was crisped to perfection + I got the huacatay sauce for a bit of a kick.
When I bit into the yuca (which is like a potato) I thought I’d fried + gone to heaven. Pro tip: Dip the yuca in the huancaina cheese sauce or pair it with maracuya for a sweet and tangy complement.
What not to miss:
If you’re craving pollo, order the quarter, half, or whole chicken with sides like cilantro rice, green beans, and plantains. The chicken is charcoal-fired + marinated in spices.The eatery has plenty of healthy options like the Andina Power Food or the Inca Wrap. Plus, the menu is 70% vegetarian with the option to add a protein.
Choose from three sauces (all made in-house daily):
And wet your whistle with one of three signature juices:
What we’re still talking about: I learned that Viva Chicken partnered with No Kid Hungry and donates 50 cents for every churro sold. Talk about a win-win.
Also, the outdoor patio was the perfect spot to eat. If it’s a nice day, order on the app ahead of time + enjoy your food in the sunshine.
How you can experience this:
There are several ways to get your fix — order through the Viva Chicken App, online, curbside, in-store, or over the phone. Pro tip: Download the app, make an account + start earning VivaPoints. Earn 750 points to reach Aji Status and receive $5 off, 2,000 points to reach Haucatay Status and receive $7.50 off, and 3,500 points to reach Rocoto Status and receive $10 off.
Getting there: After turning left onto Nexton Square Drive, turn left again when you see Poogan’s Southern Kitchen + Viva Chicken is up ahead. Luckily, there’s plenty of parking.

Local Builder Teams Up with HGTV for Dream Homes

Your chance to own a piece of Summerville’s TV production history has finally arrived. The four homes built by local builder, Hunter Quinn Homes for season 3 of HGTV’s “Rock the Block” series will be on the market for sale in early April. You can own a one-of-a-kind home in the award-winning Nexton Community designed by Fixer to Fabulous hosts Dave and Jenny Marrs, sisters Lyndsay and Leslie from Unsellable Houses, Egypt and Mike from Married to Real Estate, or Keith and Evan from Bargain Block.
These 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath, 3,500 spacious square foot homes are well-appointed and unique. Each HGTV team started with the same base floor plan and added their own unique touch to the Charleston-inspired home they worked on. That might mean French doors in an unexpected place, a space-age shower in the master bath, a stand-out feature wall found in no other house, or some other element that makes each house one-of-a-kind.
“Not only will the future owners of these homes have a unique story to tell about who designed their homes, but they will forever be tied to a significant piece of cinematic history in Berkeley County,” said Hunter Quinn Homes marketing director Krista Mott. Each team of design professionals was given $225,000 to design and style their home in just six weeks—and the results are breathtaking.
Local homebuilder Hunter Quinn Homes was chosen by show producers to build the houses in Summerville’s Nexton community, the top master-planned community in the nation in 2020 and the best mixed-use community in 2022, according to the National Association of Home Builders. The producers researched the area before falling in love with the community and determining that Hunter Quinn was the best builder to handle the compressed building schedule and high show standards.
“Hunter Quinn has and continues to establish itself as the builder of choice for its customers, trade partners, team members, and the community,” said Hunter Quinn’s vice president of Sales and Marketing, Jason Harper, “We have put in a lot of work into our systems and processes to make the experience the best it can be, and I believe that is why we were selected to be the builder of these homes for the TV show.”
Each house includes luxury items inspired by architectural features of the historic Charleston single-style house like a Charleston-style veranda that opens to a spacious side yard, Lowcountry staples like sweetgrass and driftwood incorporated into the home designs, and designer finishes that mimic the historic ornamental ironwork found downtown Charleston.
Potential buyers with an interest in purchasing one of these homes can visit the Hunter Quinn website for information on how to submit an offer once the homes are released for sale on April 9. Four lucky families will have the opportunity to purchase and live in homes designed before the eyes of millions of people by designers they know and love.
Situated in Berkeley County, in the heart of the Lowcountry, Nexton offers all the benefits of Lowcountry living—weather, culture, beaches, history—along with delightful livable neighborhoods that are seamlessly integrated with retail and commercial. The show highlights the beauty and charm of Nexton and Berkeley County.
“Rock the Block has been an opportunity to show the world an award-winning master-planned community sited right here in Berkeley County and share some of the many things we love about where we are so fortunate to live,” said Ashley M. Powell, deputy county supervisor. “Our outdoor recreation via attractions like Cypress Gardens, direct access to the Cooper River, Lakes Marion and Moultrie, and the Francis Marion National Forest is unmatched. In addition, we boast ample opportunities for quality places to work and live.
As Hollywood met South Carolina, the project presented many challenges to Hunter Quinn, like lining up subcontractors and materials quickly despite a labor shortage and supply-chain disruptions. In addition, builders had to work with the shooting schedule, occasionally having to re-enact work for the cameras. But the result is four homes that everyone is talking about—and four lucky families will own.
“We normally build houses in about 150 days. Then these guys show up and ask if we can build them in 60 and do it a little differently,” said Will Herring, founder and CEO of Hunter Quinn. “It was a challenge, but we like challenges. If we could do it all again we would—and without hesitation.”

The branch plans to hold a grand opening ceremony in January.

Next community in Nexton to break ground

The local master planned community named the best in the nation has begun work on another phase, on the way to 7,500 residences. This new phase of the Nexton community in Summerville and Berkeley County is expected to add apartments for rent, hotel, office space and 150,000 square feet of shopping and dining space when it is completely built out over the next five to seven years.
Nexton has sold nearly 24 acres to Charlotte-based Crosland Southeast, which plans to develop the new One Nexton segment in multiple phases, starting this coming summer. The first phase of One Nexton will include 351 new apartments and 37,500 square feet of retail space anchored by a Publix supermarket.
One Nexton is consistent with the mixed-use development philosophy of the larger Nexton community, which sits between Interstate 26 and U.S. Highway 176 and was named the “Master-Planned Community of the Year” in 2021 by the National Association of Homebuilders.
Nexton sold 456 homes in 2020 and another 576 in 2021 to earn a spot on the RCLCO Real Estate Advisors list of fastest-growing planned communities. More than 1,800 homes currently comprise greater Nexton, including 250 under construction.
Located at the northeast corner of Brighton Park Boulevard and Nexton Parkway, the first phase of One Nexton will break ground in the summer and is expected to be complete in the fall of 2024.
“One Nexton illustrates that Nexton continues to be a national leader in modern community design,” said Brent Gibadlo, vice president and general manager of Nexton. “By fostering thoughtful commercial and residential growth along Charleston’s I-26 growth corridor, we can provide everything our residents want and need while cutting down on commute times and improving quality of life by allowing them to live, work and play and shop all within a short walk or drive from their homes.”
One Nexton will include green space, parks and trails that connect to the rest of Nexton. The master plan for the entire Nexton development calls for 50 miles of walking/biking trails; 2,000 of the total 5,000 acres set aside for woodlands, wetlands and open space; and 400 acres of office, commercial and retail.
One Nexton is the latest phase of the community, built one section at a time over the past decade. Originally developed by WestRock, the real estate company that was formed from lumber giant MeadWestvaco. Today, the development is under development by Brookfield Residential, which acquired the previous developer, Newland, last year.
Nexton’s previous phase to begin development was Midtown, five districts built around a central area of shops, restaurants and a wellness center complete with tennis center, lap pool, yoga studio and more. That followed on the heels last year of Downtown Nexton, 100 acres between Sigma Drive and Brighton Park offering the same amenities and walkability.
