Live an active lifestyle and don't want to deal with a lot of home maintenance but don't want to live in a condo or townhome where you are sharing walls or ceiling/floors? Then take a look at this beautiful, nearly new all brick, one level patio home full of upgrades in Simpsonville's Villas at Carriage Hills. Sellers did a wonderful job choosing all of the finishes in this just over 1800 square foot, 2 bed, 2 bath open concept home. As you enter from the covered porch, you will be greeted by hardwood floors that are throughout the home in all living spaces including both bedrooms. To the immediate left is the secondary bedroom which feels very airy and bright, with high ceilings and a large closet. Adjacent to the bedroom is the secondary bath with tiled floors, brushed nicked fixtures and tiled bath/shower surround with seamless glass sliding shower door, added by the sellers after moving in. As you head further into the house you will find the very open living room, kitchen, dining room combination which is full of light from the positioning of the windows in these rooms. The kitchen is what anyone would want from a design standpoint: quartz countertops, subway tiled backsplash, upgraded GE Profile stainless steel appliances (gas cooktop, convection microwave, and wall oven), farm house sink, white cabinets (some uppers with glass doors), decorative hood with vent over the cooktop and island with contrasting light gray cabinets. You won't need to paint as the home is painted agreeable gray throughout, a color that complements every style of decor. Need an office space or quiet as you work from home? The french doors leading to the office is a great work space or could be used to fit your needs; craft room, exercise room, den, add a sleeper sofa for additional guest visits, the possibilities are endless! At the back of the home you will find the master bedroom with trey ceiling, ceiling fan, walk in closet with custom cabinetry and ensuite bath with double vanity, brushed nickel fixtures, framed decorative mirrors and zero entry walk in shower. Off of the master is the spacious screened porch complete with roll down shades and a remote controlled vinyl panel on one side to help with keeping the room comfortable on a windy day. The deck which is accessible from the kitchen or screened porch has a remote controlled awning providing shade on those sunny days. Double door pantry, laundry with utility sink, flex/storage room are down the hallway leading to the 2 car garage with epoxy painted floors, garage door opener with key pad and some cabinetry for storage. Sellers have added almost $20k in improvements since moving in including the Hunter Douglas remote controlled pleated blinds, landscaping, and ceiling fans, just to name a few. Partially fenced yard. You must see to appreciate all this home has to offer! Please see associated documents for more information regarding HOA and maintenance responsibilities.

Lifestyle and Attractions

Simpsonville is a fast-growing Upstate city in South Carolina with a tight-knit community of more than 20,000 residents. Simpsonville is one of three towns straddling I-385, which are part of the “Golden Strip” for their proximity to this prominent highway leading to Greenville. Many Simpsonville residents work in the larger city of Greenville, which is located a mere 15 miles away. The town centers on its colorful Main Street, dotted with small shops, restaurants and other businesses, plus a red brick clock tower — a well-known city landmark. Simpsonville has received a number of accolades over the years, such as one of the “10 Best Towns for Families” by Family Circle Magazine.


The main hub for outdoor recreation in Simpsonville is Heritage Park, a large park with hiking trails, picnic shelters, baseball fields, playgrounds, and perhaps most notable, the Heritage Park Amphitheatre, a 10,000-seat open-air concert venue. Simpsonville residents enjoy various water activities at the Discovery Island Waterpark, a watery playground with a lazy river, serpentine body slides and more. The Ballentine-Spence House is an historic Victorian and Early Colonial Revival home built in 1910 that now hosts private and community events, including Christmas tours. Simpsonville’s Upstate Harvest Moon Festival is a fall festival with musical acts, children’s entertainment, street performers, wine tasting and craft beers.


Nearby Schools and Higher Education

Simpsonville is part of the Greenville County School District, the largest district in South Carolina and the 45th-largest in the country. There are 15 public schools located in Simpsonville. Additionally, Simpsonville has five private schools, plus a number of private school options throughout the region. Greenville Technical College has a Simpsonville campus, and there are plenty of colleges and universities located in nearby Greenville, including Bob Jones University, Furman University and more.



In the 1820s, the area now known as Simpsonville was simply a stagecoach stop at the intersection of Old Stage Road and a Cherokee trail known as Georgia Road. The city was originally called O Plain, and eventually became Simpsonville in 1885, deriving its name from settler Peter Simpson, who set up a blacksmith shop in town during the 1830s. After the Civil War, streets and lots were surveyed for a town that would hold a new railroad track. These streets make up the historic district of Simpsonville today, and are largely preserved to their original look.


Like many cities in the South, Simpsonville saw a major textile boom in 1908 with the establishment of the Woodside Cotton Mill, which was the city’s largest employer until World War II ended. The town rapidly evolved after the construction of I-385, which made Simpsonville and its neighboring cities more accessible. This attracted large companies such as Pratt Industries, Kemet, and the Cryovac Division of Sealed Air Corporation.
