“I am so proud to see our team and beautiful Saluda River Club community recognized by our homebuilding peers,” said Andrew (Andy) White developer of Saluda River Club. “I am especially gratified to be named a Top 10 Builder in the Market. The REGAL Awards are highly anticipated each year, and with over 800 builder and associate firms as members of the Building Industry Association of Central South Carolina, the competition for these awards is fierce, and winning is extremely gratifying.”

Saluda River Club is a 235-acre master-planned community overlooking the Saluda River just outside Columbia, S.C. Over the years, White and his team have continued to innovate, anticipating the changing demographics and desires of homebuyers, and providing floor plans, styles and features to meet those needs by designing various neighborhoods within the community. Saluda River Club is located in Lexington’s top-rated public school district, just minutes away from major business, medical, academic and entertainment centers in downtown Columbia, S.C. The award-winning community is known for its exceptional amenities, which include the Chickawa Outdoor Center, Village Clubhouse, outdoor playground, river access, two outdoor pools, fitness center, walking trail, dog park, community gardens, riverside observation deck, a village green, outdoor amphitheatre, recreation area and much more.

Two of the newest Saluda River Club neighborhoods are Hillside and The Vineyard. Hillside was inspired by the picturesque charm of the Italian Riviera with its two-bedroom villas gently cascading down to the Saluda River. The new neighborhood occupies a naturally terraced formation on the northern boundary of Saluda River Club. Reminiscent of the Cinque Terre villages of Italy, each cluster features six attached villas, perfectly perched to take advantage of river views over, through and around the clusters. Floor plans include welcoming front porches or inviting courtyard entrances, private baths for each bedroom, bright, open living spaces, as well as unexpected surprises like airy lofts – perfect for a home office or hobby room.

The Vineyard is a brand-new neighborhood inspired by casual elegance of Napa, California. The home designs within this stunning new neighborhood are unprecedented in the greater Columbia area and have generated immediate interest, leaving only two of the 24 homes available for immediate occupancy.

“We have created Saluda River Club for people of all ages and stages of life,” said White. “Throughout the community, there are home design options for families with children, empty nesters and those who have adult children or other family members living in the home. With so many sizes, styles and customizable options, you could change homes more than once as your needs change and never leave the location, amenities and river access that make living at Saluda River Club so appealing.”
