COUNTRY WALK – Sometimes upon entering a new community, you simply sense it is a place you would like to live. Country Walk is such a neighborhood. It is almost a “picture perfect” community. The entrance way into Country Walk is a 200+ yard long tree lined boulevard. It features entrance signage, a small welcoming shelter, and decorative arbors that invite you to use sidewalks that run across the development and walking paths that run around the perimeter of Country Walk subdivision.
The property on the right of the entrance boulevard is Home Owners Association common grounds. And when you reach the first circular traffic island, you’ll find the attractive, well kept 1700+ sq. ft. multi-level club house (known as the Knoll House). Behind Knoll House are the community swimming pool (with pool side shelter), tennis courts, full size soccer field, and a basketball court. Across the street from the clubhouse is additional parking for the adjoining playground area, another smaller basket ball court, plus a second activities field. In total, there are over 35 acres of common ground for the residents use. This acreage also provides wooded back drops for many lots and also acts as a buffer zone between the nearby communities.
If you continue on Country Walk Lane following the traffic circle to the left, you will notice most of the homes in the community are on the winding side roads, or cul-de-sacs which branch off of this main boulevard. There are 160 active lots (some consisting of multiple parcels) but only a few are vacant and these are privately owned. Single lot sizes vary between .31 acres and .67 acres. Since the common ground also serves as a back drop for over 90 lots, this gives a much larger “feel” to many lots.
The homes in Country Walk are traditional in nature and feature brick exteriors. They include a variety of styles. You’ll notice some with more classical features and others that take on a more modern look. Brick exteriors give the community a quality look. And mature trees, nicely landscaped and cared for yards only add to the attractive appearance of Country Walk. The Home Owners Association is incorporated, and operates under the guidelines of the 21 page Covenants and Restrictions. The C&R authorizes an Architectural Control Committee to review and approve home construction and improvements with regards to “…size, color, conformity of design, . . . and quality of construction.”
The homes sold in Country Walk during 2007 had an average selling price of $422,950 and with an average home size of 2,986 sq.ft. per county tax records. Country Walk is in the City of Clemson and only 1 mile from the downtown area and Clemson University. Its proximity to the university makes it a very attractive neighborhood for college professors and personnel. At one time over 60% of the homeowners were affiliated with Clemson University thus providing a very stable neighborhood. The Country Walk neighborhood is comfortable, convenient, and charming.
