|Swansgate is an independent living community of
privately owned patio homes and condominium units for adults 55
and over who want the comfort and security of being part of a
special community, along with the privacy and independence of
owing their own home. Located on a 42-acre site just off
Grove Road in the prestigious "Augusta Road" area of
Greenville, South Carolina, this "gated" community is
just across the stream from the Greenville Memorial Medical Center
and within easy walking distance of neighborhood shops, grocery
stores, restaurants, and the U.S. Post Office.
Swansgate, the first pre-retirement and
retirement community of its kind in the country, was planned for
professionals who are approaching retirement or who are already
retired and want to pursue a comfortable, creative, and secure
lifestyle. The brain child of H. Wilson Worley, author of
"Retirement Living U.S.A. The Inside Story", and U.S.
Retirement Corporation, development at Swansgate began in 1983
with final new construction completing in 2002. The clubhouse
with its activity
room, library, game and billiard room, and exercise facility,
together with the swimming
pool and tennis
court create a country club ambiance for the resident owners
of this 165 patio home, 24 condominium unit community.
All patio homes and condominium units are sold
with fee simple title and become the private property of the
owner. Owners agree to the protective covenants,
restrictions, and easements of the Swansgate subdivision and
become members of the Swansgate Homeowners Association. This
membership entitles them to the use of all common facilities and
other amenities, including an electronically controlled security
gate, exterior maintenance of all homes, grounds maintenance,
planned recreation, and professional community management.
There are no entrance fees or endowment fees required to purchase
and owners are free to sell their property at any time.
Existing patio homes for sale are priced from
the mid-$160,000's to the lower-$300,000's; range in size
from approximately 1,300 square feet to over 2,400 square
feet; and are based on nine distinctive two or three bedroom
designs. One and two bedroom condominiums, located in two

square feet to just over 1,100 square feet. For a list of
