Traditionally one of Greenville’s most affluent communities, this historic area is full of winding residential streets lined with beautiful mature trees. Charming homes boasting various architectural styles from bungalows to stately Georgian mansions add to the Augusta Road area’s appeal (more to come on architectural styles in another post!).
Some of Greenville’s oldest and most successful independent businesses, as well as many nationally-known favorite establishments, populate Augusta Road’s business district. Visit www.onlyonaugusta.com for a list of must-visit spots!
While single-family is the most predominant type of home in most of the primary neighborhoods of the Augusta Road, Alta Vista, Club Forest, Chanticleer and Greenville Country Club area, there are also 14 condo and townhome communities from the Cleveland Park area to Chanticleer. For information on a few documented neighborhood associations, visit www.greenvillesc.gov/727/Neighborhood-Associations.
A primary attraction of the Augusta Road area is the award-winning public schools, including:
- Augusta Circle Elementary
- Blythe Academy of Languages
- Sara Collins Elementary
- Hughes Academy of Science and Technology
- Greenville High Academy
Additionally, there are many coveted preschool programs in the area. Hint: get on the waiting list as early as possible because lists can be long!
There’s always something fun to do in the Augusta Road area! A few highlights are:
- Annual Summer on Augusta event, June 15-18
- Amenities and programming at Greenville Country Club
- Exercise classes, youth sports, camps and more at Caine Halter YMCA
- Walking, running or biking on Swamp Rabbit Trail
- Trails, picnic shelters and playgrounds on over 120 acres at Cleveland Park
A few of my favorite smaller greenspaces are Rockwood Park, Afton Park and the Rock Quarry Garden. Plus, there are many beautiful churches, locally-hosted art events, fashion boutiques, athletic events and races, fundraisers and much more.
