Gated Community Planned Near BMW, Greer

All of the streets in the new Ellington Park subdivision bear the name of jazz greats.

But the only thing the community will have in common with those legendary jazz performers is the use of its natural gifts.

Developer Eric Hedrick said the community will seek to preserve its trees and ambiance at its site at South Bennetts Bridge and Thompson roads, near Greer.

It will be a gated community with 32 homesites, ranging in size from 0.57 acre to 0.81 acre, Hedrick said.

The lots, costing from the $70,000-range, all are on cul-de-sacs. Some are suited for basements and more than half are wooded.

Sheila Young, a realtor with Re/Max Foothills Downtown at the Hyatt, said homebuyers also have the option of signing up to use amenities in the neighboring Laurel Lake community. Laurel Lake has a swimming pool, tennis courts, and a clubhouse.

Homes in Ellington Park will likely be priced from $500,000 and up, Hedrick said.

She said the community’s proximity to Eastside schools, the airport, major intersections, Woodruff Road, and companies such as BMW make it an ideal place to settle.
