The collection includes The Toxaway, The Jocasse, The Eastatoe and The Tuckasegee. All homes are built to Energy Star Certification allowing for lower utility consumption. They also include exclusive use of low maintenance exterior building materials, as well as a 10-year home warranty from Bonded Builders Warranty Group.

The collection is perfect for exclusive environments and gated communities including The Cliffs and The Reserve, as well as other communities in Upstate South Carolina and Western North Carolina. And plans can be adapted for individual lot topography.

With this collection, Meritus saves you all the time spent on plan selection and design, building approvals and selecting a reliable, quality contractor. From planning and preconstruction through move-in, Meritus will be with you all the way.

Meritus Signature Homes Hires Interior Designer


Meritus is excited to announce the addition of Interior Designer Cortney Whitfield to its staff.

Cortney’s interest in interior design sparked when she took an interior design course her senior year of high school. As her passion grew, she began searching for schools in South Carolina that offered interior design as a study. She landed on Anderson University’s interior design program and gained a base knowledge of residential and commercial design at the college. Cortney received great, hands-on experience at Anderson University, using computer design programs, creating design boards and selecting materials and finishes. While at Anderson, she also started a volunteer team to help with Habitat for Humanity.

After graduating, Cortney pursued a job in the furniture industry.

“Furniture design has always intrigued me and I really wanted to learn as much as I could about furniture. I had the privilege of working for Bogari European Contemporary Furniture gallery as a design consultant and sales associate for two years,” said Cortney. At Bogari, Cortney had the opportunity to help clients select materials and finishes for their furniture, work on design projects, order and assemble pieces of furniture and take part in helping run the small business.

Cortney is excited to start a new chapter of her interior design career at Meritus Signature Homes.

“Meritus Homes has a brilliant team of talented individuals who are passionate about what they do. The amount of attention and dedication that they devote to each client sets them apart. They work with the client every step of the way to make sure that, in the end, the client is happy and satisfied with the services,” said Cortney.
