We may be moving to the Columbia area in the next 6 mos. My husband's job would take him into Columbia. I want to know about safe neighborhoods/towns, that can accomodate my family. I'd like a 4 bdroom home (Large dog, 4 kids, and I am a DIYer) room to run and safety for one of my children who is a spec needs child. I LOVE older, historic homes, but will do without if necessary. I am assuming smaller towns would have these amenities, but I'm not sure. I do not like to shop. I do like to garden and I love to make and hear gorgeous music. (ie. early music, etc.) Is there a fit out there?

Check out Camden, there would be a plethora of historic homes to choose from. A second choice might be Ridgeway.

You may want to have a look at Chapin or the Dutch Fork area in Irmo/Columbia. They are in the Lex/Richland 5 district and have a wonderful special needs program. One of my coworkers has a special needs daughter and that's why they stay in this school district.

Default Columbia Area

A nice neighborhood on the outsirts of the City of Columbia (17 miles to downtown) is the Ballentine Area. Milford Park is a beautiful subdivision with a community pool/cabana. Traditional Houses ranges from the low 200's to around 280's. Taxes are LOW! The schools are top rated. Kids can walk to Ballentine Elementary. The other schools are Dutch Fork Middle and Dutch Fork High. The school district is Lexington/Richland 5. Only a short trip to beautiful Lake Murray.
