Buying a home in Spring Valley in northeast Columbia can be very exciting. As one of the few gated communities in Columbia, and one of the very few gated golfing communities, Spring Valley offers a wonderful neighborhood for young families as well as retirees and those in-between.
It is a neighborhood of over 1200 homes, featuring mature landscaping, wide curving streets, acres of beautiful lakes surrounding Spring Valley Country Club and its 18-hole golf course. Drive the streets any morning or afternoon, and you're likely to see people walking their dogs, parents strolling their children, kids on bikes, joggers, and people talking with their neighbors. There is a variety of architectural styles, home sizes, and ages of homes, making Spring Valley a neighborhood that can never be called "cookie cutter".
At any one time there are 10 to 30 homes for sale in the neighborhood. Some require substantial updating while many are already updated or are new construction. In other words, there are no typical Spring Valley homes.
