If you’ve ever taken a Sunday morning drive through Greenville’s neighborhoods, you’ll know we have some beautiful houses in our city.

Here are 10 notable digs that we’ve been admiring. 🏠

Homes of the past:

  • Broad Margin – A house designed in 1954 by iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright for two Greenville sisters, which has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979. It’s named after the Henry David Thoreau quote: “I love a broad margin to my life.”
  • Max and Trude Heller House – A classic mid-century modern home (circa 1955) where Max Heller, former GVL mayor who helped bring new life to downtown, lived with his wife Trude. The Mad Men vibes are too real.
  • The Wilkins House – A historic home built in 1878 that used to sit on Augusta St, but was moved to Mills Ave in 2014 to save it from demolition. It took $700K to move it two blocks, but a full restoration helped preserve this piece of GVL history for years to come.

Homes of the present:

  • Magnolia Hill Plantation in Fountain Inn ($4.5M), 130 Highway 651 – 50 acres, a double wrap-around covered porch, a private gym, and a secret billiards room in the library. There’s also a custom barn in case you want to take up horseback riding. 🐎

  • “Contemporary Cool” home ($750K), 108 Fernwood Lane – A cherry-red kitchen, 27-panel window overlooking a private forest, and chrome + concrete details – all within walking distance of Cleveland Park.

  • #PorchGoals in TR ($649K), 67 Pleasant Valley Trail – Just step onto the balcony for views of Caesars Head, Table Rock, and Glassy Mountain. ⛰

  • Luxury cabin vibes ($539K), 1909 Pleasant Hill Road – Host an event in the 50x60 aviation hangar (no big deal), fish for bass in your backyard pond, enjoy the 100-yard rifle range + hang out by the rock fireplace afterwards… while kids play in the indoor ball pit.

  • Historic GVL Home ($749K), 831 Rutherford Road – Perfect if you’re nostalgic for “Old Greenville” + love natural light, wood vaulted ceilings, and plenty of magnolia trees.

  • West End Townhouse ($507.9K), 302 Arlington Avenue – A chic downtown spot with hardwood floors throughout, a private patio, and a short walk to Drive games at Fluor Field (or dinners at Husk).

  • Lake house that *isn’t* isolated ($925K), 16 Quail Hill Drive – A lakeside oasis… that’s right off Parkins Mill Rd. Add trail access, a boathouse with a dock, and glamorous-meets-rustic vibes, and we’re sold.
