Hartness, a new Upstate South Carolina community in Greenville, has been master-planned to be one of the Southeast’s most exciting Traditional Neighborhood Developments. A Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) is a community that is centered on the interconnectivity of its residents. Every element is carefully crafted with attention to detail. TND communities are rich with benefits such as walkable spaces with uninterrupted sidewalks, creating an environment that is perfect for a stroll with the dog or a short walk to visit a neighbor. TNDs also feature beautiful greenspaces such as Hartness’ Grand Lawn, relaxing hiking trails and a Village Center for community gatherings, shopping, and dining.
The prominent local family creating this unique residential destination went even further, though, dedicating more than 40% of the community footprint to a 180-acre nature preserve, common-area creeks and ponds and a central park for farmer’s markets and open-air events. All are linked by more than 15 miles of groomed hiking and biking trails.
Featuring classic architectural styles, ownership options in Hartness range from manor homes and large estates to townhomes and smaller cottage residences. Model homes are open for viewing as are the initial neighborhood clubhouse with pool and fitness facilities. An even larger amenity center—including an aquatic complex, wellness center with spa and tennis/pickleball courts—will be added beginning later this year.
The Upstate’s top-rated medical centers are just minutes from the Hartness entrance, as is vibrant downtown Greenville. Even closer is GSP International Airport, with direct connections to most major East Coast cities.
