I will be visiting the Columbia area in March to view potential areas to move to. After reading through several posts I am leaning towards Lexington and Irmo. We are looking to spend 200K-250K for a home in a nice area. We would like to stay away from developments where it is "reach out and touch your neighbor" (I would like some privacy..and land.. 1/2 + acre would suffice) Any suggestions you could provide would be appreciated. We are a young couple, no children, so schools are not a huge decision factor. We are active and enjoy outdoor activities (hiking, biking, running, etc), so being able to continue these activities is important to us. We look forward to seeing all the area has to offer & the warm weather! I am currently looking out my window watching the snow fall..it is pretty, but I can live without.

Thank you!

Ha,ha most neighborhoods in Lexington are reach out and touch your neighbors unless you pay well over $200,000 for the place. There is also something I have noticed that there is some places on Barr Rd right outside Lexington that are new however it looks like people are moving in staying a month or 2 and then moving out. That would make me question the structure of them homes or the quality. They are beautiful homes don't get me wrong but when I was in there a couple times this fall I can't even remember how many For Sale signs there were because there was so man.
