Looking for something similar but on the Eastside. In the +/- $250k price range. Must have a great Elementary School.

Any suggestions?
As a resident of Pelham Falls--I highly suggest coming and taking a look. We moved here 4 years ago when we sold our starter home. Lots in the $250 range. Many houses are going on the market, but just the nature of transition--it's NOT clicky--and people in any neighborhood can be snooty...lots of moms who work and lots who stay home. WE had a little playgroup running for a while. Now our kids are in school, but we are trying to form one again. They are also reviving the welcome committee. I know people who have lived here 10+ years and kids have grown up and moved out and they are just as nice as the the new families like mine moving in. The river path is great for walking/jogging and bird watching. Swim team, tennis courts and now we have 2 soccer goals near the playground. Lots of trees and our lots is almost 1/2 acre.

For that price range the OP was asking about, I would give Silverleaf and Bennington (on Devenger Road) a good look. Nice homes, and the people seem very friendly but stay away from Pelham Falls. It's another subdivision with a soccer mom clique feel to it (unless that's what you were wanting).
I completely disagree with you. If you've never lived in there how can you be so quick to judge the soccer moms in Pelham Falls? It's a great neighborhood! There are 10 house on our street and we have Christmas parties and our kids of all ages play together a lot. Folks are very active in the schools (especially the elementary), churches, and are real friendly.

I live in Gilder Creek Farms in the Simpsonville/Five Forks Area. It is a fairly new neighbhorhood (3 years old). It has a pool, small playground and very friendly. I live in the part they call The Valley. The neighbors up here have Progessive dinners, men's poker night and parties all the time. They have a range of prices in the neighborhood so I am sure there are some in the 250K range. Even though it is off of Woodruff it does not have the same congestion as the other parts of Woodruff. You can actually hop onto Bennetts Bridge Road and it will take you to 101 to I85. It does not take very long at all.

The schools are Bells Crossing Elementary, Riverside Middle and Mauldin High. My kids are not in school yet but I hear they are all good ones.

Directions (easiest not quickest):
Take 385 towards simpsonville
Get off on Woodruff and take a left.
Go down past Wal-mart, past McDonalds, past Southside Christian, keep going
when you find a Rite-Aid on your right turn onto Scuffletown Road
Follow down and take a left onto Gresham Road (man selling palm trees will be on your right).
Take first entrance into Gilder Creek Farms (Braeburn Drive).

I have seen a few For Sale Signs up.

Can anyone tell me if Kilgore Plantation is a family friendly neighborhood? I have two kids under the age of 4 and would like to move to an area with more children in the neighborhood. Many thanks!
