First Cliffs Communities condos open

        Acknowledging a wicked economy and a general trend toward lower-cost and maintenance-free vacation homes, The Cliffs Communities has begun to populate its mostly single-family communities with some attached residences.  Although a few town homes are in place at the Walnut Cove development, and a "residence club" (fractional ownership) is on the way near Lake Keowee, The Cliffs just announced the completion of its first set of condominiums, The Village Overlook at Mountain Park.  The Tuscan-style units feature The Cliffs' typical high-quality materials, but not the typical Cliffs robust prices.  A one-bedroom Village Overlook unit starts at $350,000, and the top of the line three bedroom tops out at $800,000.  Just down the street, single-family lots are priced in the $300s. Cliffs “estate homes” begin in the $1.3 million range, and a Cliffs golf membership, with access to all six courses within an hour of each other, is $150,000.

        The Village Overlook units feature stacked stone archways and heavy wooden doors as well as views of a planned Euro-style village. Also, at least one famous neighbor lives down the road.  Legendary golfer Gary Player has moved his family and golf design studio to Mountain Park in preparation for work on the community’s golf course.  Because the Saluda River runs through it, the course has faced some thorny environmental issues that Cliffs officials say have now been resolved.   Work on the course recommences in March, with a completion date estimated in 2011.

        Interest in the condos has been brisk enough to compel The Cliffs to begin work on a second phase of Village Overlook condos.  If you are interested in more information, let me know and I will be happy to provide it.
