Looking for info on the Knightsbridge subdivision in Ft. Mill. Pro's/Con's, Schools (I have 4 kids aged 7-18), etc. I found a house for sale there while searching on-line, and my wife and I are very interested in it. Coming down from New York in a couple of weeks to check out the area. The realtor I'm working with recommended this subdivision based on my preferences. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Kevin

Don't forget to spend some time in Tega Cay. We have both newly constructed, and older homes in a variety of price points. Many wonderful homes for just about every income level. Only thing we're missing is a good New York bagel shop.

It's funny you mentioned a Bagel shop. I just went out for bagels this morning. (A Sunday ritual at our house) That's one of the things I would miss leaving Long Island. Thanks for the feedback, I'll check into Tega Cay also.

Default which house?

Which house in Knightsbridge did you see online? My wife and I went and looked at the 3 bigger ones that are for sale in there, if you want I'll tell you what I thought if it is one that you were interested in. We really liked the subdivision, seems like a lot of families and the schools in Ft. Mill are supposed to be really good. The pros I see in Knightsbridge are that the houses are bigger for your $, some wooded lots, some houses have basements, taxes are less in SC than NC.

I live in Knightsbridge. Single parent with a 3 year old.

There seems to be a good mix of families in KB. I've seen all ages of kids. Lots of street basketball, tag football and cul-de-sac car/bike riding. The HOA is non-intrusive.

Everyone seems friendly and the homes are well kept. There is a neighborhood pool and clubhouse with a baby pool and an adjacent playground. We really enjoyed the pool this past summer. It was not too crowded so you could enjoy it. There are regular social events at the pool/clubhouse (Santa, other holidays).

There aren't many cons but there are a few things I miss. 1. More sidewalks. There is only one sidewalk that runs along Knightsbridge Road. The rest of the neighborhood has no sidewalks. 2. No walking trails. 3. Relatively narrow roads. People parking in the street can inhibit traffic. This is not a serious problem as most people pull their cars partially into the yard. (I think they are ticketed by security or the HOA for street parking). 4. Inferior playground. It is a residential style wooden swingset. No real playground, so plan on having your own. 5. No park-like area. No open space for the kids to play soccer, football, etc. No water feature/ducks, etc. There is a sliver of common area next to my yard where the kids play, but it's far from ideal.

My particular home has a 1/3 acre lot, so we have put in our own swingset and have room to play. If the home you buy out here has a "playable" yard, I doubt you'll be concerned about the cons mentioned above.

All in all, we really like the neighborhood. Do come see the home when you are down.

Good luck.

When you come for a visit check out White Grove as well. You can see some homes on the allen tate web site Allen Tate Family of Companies just enter the neighborhood name. I forget your price range but we have a wide variety capping off at around the $325 mark but starting lower. While we do not have a pool we do have a large amount of paved walking trails, 4 acres of common open space, sidewalks throughout, tons of kids of all ages. We also have a really low HOA fee. Lots sizes are .37 to a little over a half acre. Many like mine seem much bigger because they back to open space and the walking trails. You will always spot kids outside playing and fishing in the two ponds. We also feed into one of the remaining schools that are not closed to new enrollment, so the kids get to go to school with thier neighbors.

Please PM me if you have anymore questions and I would be happy to share my experince as a fairly new transplant from PA. We have been here just 8 months and really like almost everything.

I loved a home in White Grove and it was my first choice. I still like the look of White Grove better than Knightsbridge. But, the additional commute time across or around Fort Mill was the deal breaker. I timed it 20 minutes to I-77 without traffic. I have a 12 minute commute to Arrowood and I-485 from Knightsbridge and feel that outweighs what I passed up in White Grove. But, still, I really liked that neighborhood and that one house!

We first looked up toward Tega Cay but commute time decided it for us as well. My husband is lucky ( I guess) and works in Lancaster so he is traveling the opposite way of everyone else, so moving down this way took about 20 minutes off his commute. Good luck in your move it is amazing how all of a sudden things just fall into place. I truly feel like we were dropped exactly where we were meant to be.

I love Knightsbridge - it's the only neighborhood I looked at when we moved down here. We originally thought we'd only be in K-bridge for a couple years until we built a house on some land that we bought a couple years ago, but have opted to stay in K-bridge for at least 5-10 years and then build. Our house and neighbors are so great there is no need to move!!
