THE PRESERVE

neighborhood

The Preserve, a neighborhood of upscale homes southeast of downtown Columbia, offers the convenience of in-town living within a small, gated community. While the neighborhood is located just a few blocks off busy Garners Ferry Road, it offers a relaxed, private feel with show-stopping homes.

The neighborhood features large traditional and contemporary custom homes with porches, garages and high-end touches. The homes are situated on lots close together, offering something of a city feel in a wooded, quiet setting.

The development includes a community pool and clubhouse, along with a small pond and fountain, a playground and walking paths. The neighborhood is surrounded by woods and bordered by Gills Creek, but it is just around the corner from The Shoppes at Woodhill, home to Target, Starbucks, Panera Bread and World Market. The Veterans Administration Hospital and the University of South Carolina School of Medicine are less than a mile away.

It’s a quick drive to downtown, the Vista or the University of South Carolina’s main campus, while also offering easy access to I-77 and I-20.
