Saluda River Club offers excellent, distinctive homes in a beautiful natural setting, though still close to Columbia’s major medical facilities and the University of South Carolina. Its luxurious amenities, including the Chickawa Outdoor Center, the Village Clubhouse, clubs and activities, river access, trails and parks, plus its location in one of the best school districts in the state, Lexington School District One, make this a highly-desirable community for young professional couples, growing families and empty nesters alike. In 2013, in addition to its two original neighborhoods, The River District and The Village District, Saluda River Club opened The Woodlands District, introducing ‘New Carolina Living.’
