Greenville Restaurants You Need to Dine At
Greenville’s culinary scene somehow keeps growing every year, with so many places to eat, narrowing down a list of must-eats can be a bit tougher. To help, here are our picks for 10 restaurants not to miss.
The Allure of Old Houses
If you love historical houses, there is a lot you can find in the Upstate. Greenville, SC alone is home to many older historic homes located in North Main, Overbrook, East Park Ave, Hampton-Pinckney District etc. They can range from under 100k to a million.
It is not every day you can find a historic home that is priced not $100,000, not even $50,000 but just for $14,500, as was the price of the listing above. It is a great deal that cannot go unnoticed. Given the home will need work, it is still a great deal. Check out the complete home details here. This historic home is already under contract, no surprises, given that it wasn’t even on the market for long.
There is something special about an old house. If a house can stand the test of time you can say how incredible the craftsmanship and the quality of materials are. But the allure most of all is the history and story old houses tell. There is something about walking on the hardwood floors that generations of people have walked on for centuries.
