Making the move to Columbia, SC

January 22, 2021

For more than three decades, McGuinn Hybrid Homes has strived to build more than just homes for families in South Carolina. We work to build communities where you can grow and thrive with top-of-the-line energy efficiency features that keep you healthy too.  

And whether you are a history buff or an outdoor enthusiast, there are plenty of reasons for making the move to Columbia, SC.

Attractions for the whole family

Columbia is known as “The Real Southern Hot Spot'' for more than just the temperature. The region is full of culture driven by One Columbia for Arts & History including the South Carolina Philharmonic Orchestra and The Columbia City Ballet. The city also has a vibrant public art scene with murals, sculptures and fountains as well as the Columbia Museum of Art.

If an outdoor adventure is more your style, look for the Congaree where the Saluda and Broad Rivers merge in town. There you will find regional parks and opportunities for outdoor adventures including Lake Murray with its 650 miles of shoreline. You will also want to explore the Congaree National Park which is located 20 miles outside of town with the tallest trees east of the Mississippi.

The Riverbanks Zoo is home to more than 2,000 animals and breathtaking botanical gardens. 

Getting around Columbia

You will see The Central Midlands Regional Transit Authority or The COMET long before you need it thanks to the bright neon colors. The COMET bus system was formed by the City of Columbia, Richland County, Lexington County and City of Forest Acres in 2000. It has routes crossing the Columbia region with rides starting as low as $2 with a convenient mobile app to track your trip.

The free Soda Cap Connector, also run by The COMET provides quick access to some of the area’s top attractions like the South Carolina State Museum, the Main Street district and Five Points district.

Where we build

McGuinn Hybrid Homes builds new homes in four Columbia communities: Alden Glen, Harbison Grove, Honey Tree and Pickwick Place. Prices start in the mid $140s for townhomes and low $150s for single family homes. 

Students in these four communities will attend the Richland School District One or Richland School District Two depending on which community you pick. 

If you do not see the right home in the area you are targeting, or you already own your land, McGuinn also offers Build on Your Lot services in the Columbia area. This means we bring our energy-efficient features to you through a number of popular floor plans. Build on your lot prices start at $69 per square foot.
