Heather and Lawrence Hershon were looking for a new home. They had decided on downtown Columbia where they worked, she as a paralegal and he as an attorney.
“I’d seen some information about Saluda River Club on the website and thought it looked very cool,” recalls Heather. But she hesitated because she knew Lawrence wanted to be in town.
“I took him out to see Saluda River Club and he loved it,” says Heather. In short order the couple selected a home under construction in the Village District.
“We came in at a perfect time because we were able to work with the builder – Lee Blythe – to pick our floors, countertops and paint colors. We provided a lot of input, and he did exactly what we wanted.”
The Hershons moved into their beautiful three-bedroom home in early 2011 and have enjoyed every moment since. They love kayaking down the river, walking on the trails and spending time at the Village pool. Heather has discovered good friends through Bunko, and she and Lawrence have fun at cooking classes and other neighborhood activities.
“Everyone is so welcoming here. It’s nice to be in a neighborhood where everybody gets to know one another and you can form relationships with people of all ages,” adds Heather.
The Hershons eagerly share the community with friends and family. “We love inviting people over so they can see how awesome Saluda River Club is. Everyone who visits is really wowed by the whole experience.”
