Hunter Quinn is Now building in Greenville!
Whether it’s for the signature Southern charm, the unique food or the rich history, Greenville is drawing lots of national attention as an up and coming community for families in South Carolina. And we knew it was time to jump on the trend.
Hunter Quinn is now building new homes in Greenville with the Townes at Valley Creek. This community offers 12 townhomes with traditional charm and craftsman details similar to our established communities, but with their own flair as well. Let’s learn more about what makes this market so exciting.
Greenville is growing
Greenville seems to be getting more popular by the day with an estimated growth rate of 20.93 percent in the last decade. The growth has brought a ton of attention too, prompting a No. 6 ranking from Conde Nast Traveler on their list of Top Small Cities in the U.S.
Although that title is more directed to travelers, the benefits are universal with “a dynamic mix of urban center paired with abundant natural resources.” Conde Nast cites the popular food scene as well as breathtaking 32-acre Falls Park and Swamp Rabbit bike trail. Greenville also earned a spot on People’s list of The 10 Hottest Foodie Cities in America.
The city has worked hard to set itself apart with a robust offering of shopping, dining, and entertainment in Downtown Greenville, where there are more than 100 retailers and 120 independent restaurants in a 10-block stretch. This is the result of a decades-long effort that started in 1968 to revive the city by designing a pedestrian-friendly Main Street where residents and visitors could safely stroll.
This starts on the north end with NOMA Square and ONE City Plaza and stretches across the Reedy River at RiverPlace before directing you to the Fenway-inspired minor league ballpark on the West End.
Combining the arts and outdoors
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Upcountry, Greenville also provides residents with many ways to reconnect with nature. The most popular of which is Falls Park on The Reedy with its pedestrian-only Liberty Bridge. The park recently earned a spot in the Top 10 U.S. Parks list due in part to the 32-acre bridge that overlooks the breathtaking Reedy River Falls below.
Along the paths, visitors pass outdoor amphitheaters, picnic tables, tennis courts, and softball fields as well as the Greenville Zoo.
The city is also home to a vibrant art scene with the Art in Public Places initiative that scattered more than 95 pieces downtown. Heritage Green serves as the urban arts and cultural campus connecting the Greenville County Museum of Art, Upcountry History Museum at Furman University, and Children’s Museum of the Upstate among others.
If the performing arts are more your style, head to the Peace Center where you can catch The Carolina Ballet, Greenville Chorale, Greenville Symphony Orchestra, International Ballet, and the South Carolina Children’s Theater among more.
Greenville County Public Schools are also a big selling point, earning an overall score of A- from Niche.com. Schools here boast a low 16-to-1 student-teacher ratio and they are the state leader in school choice with options ranging from urban to suburban and rural settings and even magnet academies.
