Communities in the Columbia Area
Columbia is South Carolina's state capital and largest city. Columbia is located in the center of SC at the junctions of Interstates 20, 26, and 77. Columbia's downtown area is undergoing a revitalization; older homes are being restored, and there is also plenty of new construction. Businesses and families are relocating to downtown Columbia, giving it activity around the clock. Some of the neighborhoods found in the city of Columbia area include:
Just a few minutes from downtown Columbia lies the bustling town of Irmo. Housing communities are located near large retail areas which offer hundreds of shops, restaurants, and entertainment options. Irmo boasts that it is Columbia's "Gateway to Lake Murray." With so much diversity, Irmo real estate offers something for everyone.
Home to some of Columbia's prime real estate and spectacular views, Lake Murray is an affluent waterfront community with a blend of lifestyles. At one time only weekend cottages dotted the shoreline, but now much of Lake Murray is a full-time residential area. With over 500 miles of shoreline that stretch through four counties, Lake Murray real estate offers diverse options for weekend and year-round Columbia area residents alike.
Just 15 miles west of Columbia, Lexington is a metropolis all its own. It keeps a small town feel close to the city of Columbia although there has been recent, rapid growth. Many businesses are still family owned, and residents comprise much of the workforce. Columbia area families are attracted to Lexington because of its good schools and suburban lifestyle. The Lexington real estate market has boosted growth in the Columbia area with continuted new construction.
Northeast Columbia is our state capitol's fastest growing area. Located "Northeast" of downtown Columbia, it stretches from I-20 north through the I-77 corridor, then spreads east into Kershaw County. Northeast Columbia has both new construction and older, more well-established neighborhoods. It is also home to one of Columbia's most bustling retail sector with many shops and restaurants, including the Village at Sandhills. Except for Blythewood, most of Northeast Columbia is in unincorporated Richland County.
