Make Indian River Your New Home

Indian River modelTucked away in suburban southwest Columbia is the quiet Indian River community. Essex Homes’ private golf course community features homes starting in the mid-$200s. The nine available floor plans give the homeowner a variety of options when choosing a new home. From cozy to expansive, there is something for everyone.

Sizes range from a three-bedroom, two-bath option to a home with six bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths. The smallest of these plans features a family room with an eleven-foot ceiling, a breakfast nook, and a formal dining room with hardwood floors for entertaining.  A bonus room above the two-car garage provides flexible space for study or entertainment. The largest of these plans includes a private study, a breakfast nook and dining room, a loft above the foyer with a playroom upstairs, two walk-in closets, a sitting area in the owner’s suite, and so much more.

In addition to buying a quality home tailored to your needs, you will also benefit from living in the greater Columbia area. Recreation is never an issue with Lake Murray nearby; take a day to enjoy the lake and relax with friends and family. Another option for a great day trip is venturing over to Congaree National Park, which is only about an hour southeast. Just a short distance away from Interstates 20 and 26, travel to other areas is very easy, and Indian River is only minutes away from downtown Columbia, opening a world of opportunities. Walking and cycling trails along the Congaree River give you another chance to stay active in the city, and the Riverbanks Zoo offers a great experience for the whole family. With summer drawing to a close, every family knows that school is almost in session. Fortunately, Indian River is part of the award-winning Lexington Two School District.
