An Atlanta, Ga., based developer has plans to build dozens of homes off one of Bluffton’s most curiously named roads.

PulteGroup, Inc., has requested approval of a preliminary development plan for 51 homes on 20 acres northwest of the intersection of Burnt Church Road and Stroup Lane, according to a Town of Bluffton Development Review Committee agenda.

The homes would be single-family lots, according to the agenda.

Pulte spokesperson Macey Kessler said Monday the company could not comment at this time about the community’s name, home prices and other details since plans for the development are still preliminary.

The committee will discuss the proposal 1 p.m. Tuesday at a meeting at the Rotary Community Center at Oscar Frazier Park, according to the agenda. Pulte is making the request on behalf of Burnt Church Development Company, LLC.

Pulte has other developments nearby, and elsewhere in the Lowcountry and Savannah, according to its website.

The Landings at New Riverside — which will include seven home styles ranging from roughly 1,600 to more than 2,500 square feet — are “coming soon,” according to Pulte. The units, located in Bluffton’s New Riverside community near the traffic circle connecting May River Road and S.C. Highway 46, are not yet priced.

Turner’s Pointe is planned for the Savannah area, off U.S. 80 between the city and Tybee Island. Five home styles — different from and generally larger than those planned for The Landings — will be available in that development, according to Pulte.

And the developer has nearly a dozen communities, either planned or established, in the Charleston area. Homes in some of those communities start at roughly $200,000 but start at closer to $400,000 in others.

Pulte has developments in more than 50 markets across the country, according to its website.
