New To The Market…

Wheeler Hill Home Hits the Market Today…

This 2-3 year old Charleston style home sports hardwoods, high-smooth ceilings, recessed lighting, 9 ft. doors and an open floor plan. All four bedrooms have their own private baths, with granite countertops. Combine the open plan with the double decks, it makes for a great home for entertaining.
Of course, being in Wheeler Hill, this home is 5 minutes to anything downtown.

Six Neighborhoods on Lockdown? Maybe…

Cottontown, Heathwood, Hollywood/Rose Hill, Shandon, Sherwood Forest, Wales Garden; Progress serves you well. I hope City Council will too…

Let’s refresh… A few weeks ago, the Planning Commission thought it would be wise to make it such that it should take 50%+1 of a particular neighborhood, to move toward a “historical designation.” Most folks thought this was a fair at best, uncomfy at worst and all together not awful plan.

Marc Mylott, the City Zoning Administrator, is going to publicly defy this plan Wednesday at 10a.m. (every one’s attendance encouraged). Mr. Mylott, is going to argue that he has a better way. He may argue that it should be up to City Council, solely. He may argue that it should only take 50%+1, of whoever attends a particular neighborhood meeting in a school gym. Who knows? Whatever his argument, I’m going to try to attend.

I think Mr. Mylott is worried that, under the plan that’s on the table, Shandon is unattainable. With Shandon sporting 1,600+ homes, he’s afraid he won’t be able to attain the necessary 800+ signatures. Apparently, he’s going to attempt to control your shutters a different way.

Before a property rights debate begins, should someone suggest that since our neighborhoods are “Associations,” that we dare bring up the idea of HOA fees? Should each association begin collecting fees related to square footage, property footage or how many bedrooms a house contains? Hmmm…. Of course, I’m not advocating an HOA fee, but I would think the notion would raise a few eyebrows.

There is no perfect answer that will please everyone. However, I’m going to be pretty peeved if I have to submit a plan, to paint our dang shutters black.

Black, White and Red All Over…

What is Black, White and Red All Over? This Week, South Carolina…

Now that the Republicans have had their day in South Carolina’s sun (uh, rain), it’s time for the Democrats to roll into town. The main difference between the two primaries (other than the voters they will be catering to) is that, unlike the GOP’s race, this one features three (errr…2.5) candidates.

There are 3 distinct differences between the candidates; 1) Barack Obama is a male, person of color. 2) Hillary is a white woman and the wife of a former President. 3) John Edwards was born in an upstate mill, and he is P-I-S-S-E-D about it!

Look for this race to get very nasty. Since many feel Obama must win here, Hill-Bill will be putting on a full court press. Throw in that Edwards was born in Seneca, and won S.C. in the last go-round, makes for a hum-doozy of a week to come.
