In the mountain ranges of South Carolina, bordered by rolling hills, forests, lakes and bordered by mountain ranges are beautiful inexpensive mountain communities.

The Montebello community outside Greenville South Carolina is New Urbanism. With communal spaces, it got its idea from the Tuscan hills of Italy. The Blue Ridge Mountains and Greenville skyline that are visible are fairly close by. Amenities at this Carolina mountain community include clubhouse, heated swimming pool, tennis and kayaking and canoeing on Lake Como. There is single family, town homes, condo and undeveloped property available. Located in the Greenville, Spartanburg corridor, this Carolina mountain homes community is a great choice for retired people or relocation.

A genuine mountain community, Keowee Key, in the northwestern area of South Carolina, by the eighteen thousand acre Lake Keowee, is approximately an hour from Greenville and double that from Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina.
