Lake Katherine is a well established picturesque neighborhood located in downtown Columbia, South Carolina's capital city. This neighborhood is defined between Beltline Boulevard, Forest Drive, Trenholm Road, and Fort Jackson Boulevard. Lake Katherine originated as a vacation spot, however in the 1950's when Columbia started to grow rapidly, the neighborhood became a place for full time residents. Today it is considered one of the most desirable neighborhoods to live in Columbia with its unique combination of gorgeous scenery, desirable privacy, as well as extremely close proximity to the bustling downtown area.
Many lots in Lake Katherine have gorgeous waterfront views, canopies of mature trees as well as fully grown dogwood and azalea trees. Homes in this highly sought after neighborhood are on large lots, have 3 to 5 bedrooms, and range in size between 1200 square feet to 4700 square feet. There is a wide variety of styles of homes, many of which are custom built with luxurious features and details. Formal dining rooms and living rooms with hardwoods are typical in most.
Residents of Lake Katherine attend award winning Richland County District 1 Schools including Brennan Elementary School, Crayton Middle School, and A.C. Flora High School.
Lake Katherine is conveniently located to so much around Columbia, for example, Fort Jackson is only 5 minutes away. Also only a few minutes away are the Congaree Vista and Five Points. The thriving Congaree Vista entertainment district has 60 art galleries and specialty shops as well as 40 restaurants and bars. The Five Points area offers more than what people often think of as just being the college students' stomping grounds. There are great boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and bars with lots of personality.
Throughout the year Columbia also hosts many interesting cultural events such as the World Beer Festival, Columbia's Blues Festival, Columbia's International Festival, The Midlands Soap Box Derby, and much more. South Carolina State Fair is also held each year in the city during October. Right in the middle of the University of South Carolina's campus are The Koger Center and the Colonial Life Arena both of which host numerous amazing concerts, performances, and many Broadway plays that come to town.
For outdoor recreation, residents can go to the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden or the River walk parks. The Congaree National Park, South Carolina's only national park, is just minutes away and is a beautiful place for canoeing, bird watching, camping, hiking. Lake Murray is only 30 minutes away and is a perfect "outdoor playground" where you can explore the outdoors with kayaking, boating, swimming, fishing, and much more!
