Ever since my early childhood years of relocating to Blythewood (in the mid-1980ís) Iíve had an image of horse farms, suburban neighborhoods, and gentle development. In this article I will attempt to dig deeper into the Blythewood SC community and give an overview of additional neighborhoods that may have been overlooked in the past. This is partly due to a lack of marketing exposure, or a new generation of homes.

Iím not quite sure how this community has converted from rural to suburban so quickly or why it has remained one of the most desirable areas in Columbia. I believe much of this has to do with the Richland County District 2 school system, which is regarded as one of the top school districts in the State of South Carolina. Richland 2 has been rewarded over $3,000,000 in bond referendums to construct new schools to supply the demand for the growing number of residents in for the new Blythewood neighborhoods being developed. In the 2011-2012 school year Blythewood will add Muller Middle School to the expanding school system.

Many homebuyers identify the correlation of progressive housing developments by the amount of schools being constructed. Middle Schools are a good indicator for development because they typically combine several Elementary schools and pinpoint the center of development. Below are a few other neighborhoods in the Blythewood Community, which are in the nucleus of development.

The Maples

The Maples is a neighborhood located directly next to Muller Road Middle School. It is comprised of about 50 home sites with new custom homes around 3000 SF. It will be a gated community and home sites are selling rapidly. Most of the homes are of brick construction with several local homebuilders keeping a consistency of style and quality homes.

Eagles Glen

Eagles Glen is a neighborhood off of Rimer Pond Road. It consists of moderate sized homes on larger lots. This neighborhood is located about 1 mile from Blythewood Middle School and homes in this neighborhood are comparable to those in Longcreek Plantation. It is situated between the Columbia Northeast and Blythewood, which has become a hot area for development and is now linking these two areas together.

Camarie Farms

Camarie Farms is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Blythewood. It is located off of Syrup Mill Road across from Cobblestone Park. It is a somewhat exclusive neighborhood and lot sizes are well over 2 acres in size. These are mini-farms with custom homes that were built in the 1970ís to 1980ís. This neighborhood has a great design and concept of simplicity. The neighborhood consists of only one road that is looped off of Syrup Mill Road.

Calico Farms

Calico Farms is much like Camarie Farms. This neighborhood is located off of Sease Road and splits the Fairfield and Richland County line. Some lot sizes are over 10 acres and construction is slow moving, yet ongoing. This is a neighborhood where you would want to build your dream home in the country. There is not a mandatory HOA and you are open to use your own builder.


Is another new home neighborhood located off of Boney Road near Bethel-Hanberry Elementary school. This subdivision is a typical starter home neighborhood in Blythewood and is conveniently located close to The Town of Blythewood. Rex Thompson is one of the main, if not the only, builder in this neighborhood.

Langford Meadows

Langford Meadows is a small neighborhood with quality built homes. Homes in this neighborhood basically sold out before it was ever marketed. This is a great location and petit subdivision, similar to Camarie Farms, but close to several golf courses including The Windermere Club, Crickentree, Cobblestone Park, and Columbia Country Club. Many of the homes in this neighborhood are modest sized brick homes built around 2000-2005 on 2-3 acre tracts.

Blythewood is constantly growing and new neighborhoods are popping up all over the 29016 zip code. A request for homes for sale in Blythewood is one of the most popular areas that buyers mention when requesting information on their home search. But finding homes in the area can be difficult and it has lead buyers to make decisions quickly once they view a home that suits their needs. Supply and demand creates a competitive market for Blythewood real estate. When exploring neighborhoods and Homes for sale in Blythewood, South Carolina be prepared to make a quick decision and research these communities prior to house hunting.
