When it comes to living comfortably in Greer, a maintenance-free NewStyle home at Paxton Meadows or Blaize Ridge is truly the place to be.

With your new carefree lifestyle, you’ll have plenty of time to explore and appreciate the region. Check out our top 5 reasons why you’ll love living in Greer:
1. Food & fun. Downtown Greer has something for everyone, from a hip brewery to classic BBQ, elegant Italian cuisine to frozen custard. (Not to mention farm stands chock full of fresh fruits and vegetables, and little shops with homemade confections like bonbons & chocolates.)
2. Retail therapy. Greer’s national historic district includes a village with overhead lights strung across an all-brick streetscape shared by both pedestrians and vehicles. A collection of fun shops line the walkable thoroughfare, and shopping choices run the gamut from Smith & James, a fine men’s clothing store, to The Shoppes on Trade, a boutique mall showcasing the work of multiple artisans.
3. Soooo close to Greenville. Greer is only about a half hour from Greenville, which means great restaurants, museums, performing arts, the Zoo, and more. Charming Greenville mixes cosmopolitan flair with homespun creativity, and more than a little local history. Plus, the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport is one of the top ten airports in the country.
4. Outdoor recreation. Greer’s location in the Upcountry means there is an endless array of outdoor activities to explore. Hike thousands of miles of trails, cruise on one of the beautiful lakes, cycle along a scenic byway or on mountain bike trails, or go camping in one of the state parks. You won’t know where to start!
5. Close to friends & family. Are your loved ones part of the great migration to Charlotte? Or maybe they’re working at the BMW manufacturing facility here or one of the big companies in Asheville. Wherever they are, you’re either an easy drive or quick plane ride away.
