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. ;ll 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. ;n even larger amenity center—including an
a;uatic comple;, 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.
;ock ;arn Country Club ; ;pa is a highland oasis in the forested foothills of western North Carolina. Residential options include the walkable Walnut ;idge neighborhood and even larger
sites for custom homes in The ;aks, in addition to single-family
;oor plans overlooking the links in The ;airways and the Golf
Villas at the Laurels.
The ;; holes of championship golf at ;ock ;arn are highland-design masterpieces by renowned architects Robert Trent Jones,
;r. and Tom ;ackson. The rolling landscape is laced with creeks,
ponds, and waterfalls amid hardwood groves that blossom in
the spring and explode with color in the fall. Professional golf
instruction is available, as well as fine and casual clubhouse dining that’s highlighted by regular events like the ;unday Champagne ;runch.
The ;pa at ;ock ;arn, offering massage, facial, and salon
services, will move into an expanded home later this year. The
equestrian center is the region’s most complete facility for horse
lovers who want to explore the local trails. Additional lifestyle
amenities include pools and water aerobics at the aquatic center, state-of-the-art equipment, and complimentary classes for
members at the fitness center, and league play at the tennis
;ock ;arn’s strategic location near the friendly town of
Conover is yet another plus—just ; 5 minutes east of ;isgah Na-
tional ;orest hiking trails and less than an hour from the rest of
the world via Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
