I checked this place out. Only had 2brs left and they were out of my budget. Cool place though. My wife is a sustainable architect in the USGBC and this place had her attention. Thanks!

I lived in Evans before in Columbia County, and now live in the CBD.. Crime(break ins, burgalries, and sometimes robberies) was more of a issue in Evans compared to downtown.. I can't speak for Olde Town personally, but none of the people I know have had any problems except two who had their cars broken into last year... My comments come from my personal experience, and not hearsay or the local media, etc... The people who bring up certain issues usually live outside of Richmond County, and don't spend much time in these areas... They tend to get information from other suburbanities who don't visit inner city neighborhoods either..
I ended up in Olde Town between 3rd and 4th. HW floors, utilities included, gated parking, lots of sun. Thanks for the recommendations.

It is likely that I will be relocating to the Augusta area in the next few weeks for a job. The job is actually in North Augusta.

I am a foodie and historic architecture fan. I would also like to be in an area where I can entertain my wife and other visitors when they come to visit. I'm looking for a reasonably priced single bedroom or large studio with hardwood floors. Vinyl sided, burber carpet, suburbia stuff next to fast food joints and Wal-Mart is not my style.

Can anyone identify an area of town that will provide more of these options? Where should I avoid due to crime or poor access to the above mentioned points?

Many thanks in advance.
Hey if i did it all again i would go for the downtown Augusta it is being redone, lots of good food bars and music. 1st Friday is always fun. The Hill area is the best for the historic architecture if you can afford it.

Olde Town and the CBD both have their share of historic architecture too...
