CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Berewick celebrated a milestone when Rigoberto and Sarah Amador and their family recently moved into the south Charlotte community. The Amadors are the 1,000th family to make their home at Berewick since the community opened sales in 2005.

"We're excited to welcome the Amadors, and we look forward to welcoming many more families to Berewick. We have more than 30 homes and townhomes under construction, and several are move-in ready," said Peter Pappas, owner of developer Pappas Properties. "To date, we've had 80 contracts signed on new homes in 2011."

Rigo Amador's childhood friends moved from San Diego to Charlotte, and the Amadors decided to follow suit. In search of a more affordable lifestyle, the Amadors moved from San Diego with their two sons – Jake, 12, and Vinnie, 4 – and Sarah's mother, Sue Dean. After visiting their San Diego friends in their new home in Berewick, the Amadors decided Berewick was where they wanted to live as well.

With the help of Keller Williams Realtor Salona Pridgen, the Amadors selected a Lennar home because of standard features like granite countertops. They were pleased with the outstanding value they received for their investment, including a good size homesite.

Rigo works for Costco and appreciates the quick commute on the nearby interstate. All the Amadors enjoy Berewick's amenities, such as the gym, junior Olympic pool and clubhouse. They also like the close-knit community – their street even has its own Facebook page.

"Shortly after we moved in, our neighbors threw a block party – it was a great way to meet people, and we knew we had chosen the right neighborhood for our family," said Rigo.

Developed by Pappas Properties, Berewick offers a variety of activities and amenities. A beautiful 5,200-square-foot Manor House and pool area spread across six acres serve as the centerpiece of the community. The Manor House provides a hub of activity for residents with a catering kitchen, children's activity center and fitness room. Berewick also has an on-site activities director.

Berewick's southwest Charlotte location is within minutes of major interstates 485, 85 and 77 – making all attractions and conveniences easily accessible. For more information, visit
