My husband and I are thinking of moving up to the Greenville County area. We want a home in the $150-$200,000 range with the master bedroom on the bottom floor and about 2,000 sf. Would like something with a creek/river/lake view and not a huge yard. Can anyone give us any idea which town is best. Water is not the most important though. Friendliness of the people, safety and general quality of life is the most important. A community with a clubhouse/pool, etc. is also nice but not a necessity and perhaps not in our price range. Would appreciate hearing from anyone out there with any thoughts. We will be coming up mid-January

We liked all 3 of those towns, but are looking at Simpsonville and Taylors because we didn't want to be right in the city. SC is beautiful and the homes vary in prices.

We love downtown Greenville, and love the convenience of everything. People were very friendly to us when we visited, and the schools look really nice and have been helpful answering our questions.

We are putting our home on the market next week and hope to be in that area by the summertime!

Have a great visit.

Taylors is a good area, has what you seem to be looking for. My husband has built 14 houses up near the Lake Robinson area and people are flocking up that way. Check out the new subdivision going up called Blue Ridge Plantation (off Milford Church Rd). Builders are already building homes. Price ranges: $160K and up. My husband is building across the lake at Pennington Pointe and those are million dollar homes. That area is beautiful. You have the lake and mountain views. Areas around Hwy 14 and 101 are good. New subdivisions are going up all over the place. Very affordable too. We used to live in the Beaver Brooke subdivision off of Milford Chruch Rd and that was a nice, quiet neighborhood with affordable homes. My husband built 7 homes in that neighborhood. All with MBR on the first floor, too!

Good luck with your search!

Smile thanks to both of you

We appreciate the two replies. We are active seniors and the lake area sounds interesting. Many thanks.
