About The Cove

Great Southern Homes is thrilled to offer our energy-efficient, technology advanced, executive home plans in The Cove. We offer various home styles and floorplans ranging from 2,500 square feet up to 4,100 square feet starting in the high $300’s. Our durable exteriors within this community are low-maintenance and a mix of brick, hardie plank, and stone. This prestigious neighborhood is situated along a pond and offers a unique entrance with traditional-style homes.

Upon entering, you will come to a long divided median in the middle of the road that contains beautiful shrubbery. On your left-hand side there is a walking trail that extends out into the well-kept landscaping under a weeping willow tree and an assortment of grasses. The boardwalk curves back and forth and makes for a great place to go on an afternoon walk overlooking the Secondmill Pond.

Further back in the subdivision there are several cul-de-sacs that help to make quiet areas away from the busier roads. The area is heavily wooded and the houses usually have several mature trees surrounding them.

About The Cove

Sumter County is located in the heart of South Carolina, with the City of Sumter just 44 miles east of the state capital, Columbia. Sumter is encircled by a modern highway system, including interstates 95, 20, 77 and 26. Sumter enjoys easy access to these interstates via four-lane U.S. Highways. Once a sleepy agricultural town, Sumter has become a burgeoning industrial center. With five industrial parks housing about 65 manufacturing facilities and employing about 8,200, the county is a perfect place for both manufacturing and retail expansion, and these keep new homes in Sumter in demand. Shaw Air Force Base is also located here, home to the 20th Fighter Wing, Headquarters Ninth Air Force/United States Central Command Air Forces, and several associate units.


Whether walking the tree-lined streets of downtown Sumter or its various parks, Sumter offers the shade and tranquility perfect for a Sunday stroll. While still industrialized, Sumter has a soft side for the finer things in life. The arts are a rich part of Sumter’s identity, with the annual Arts Festival showcasing works from local artists. Sumter’s Opera House is probably one of our best-known landmarks. With its towering 100-foot clock tower, the Opera House is a legend in its own right. Sumterites know how to let their hair down too. At the Sumter@Six performances, attendees can hear nationally known bands from the area, such as The Tams or The Headliners, enjoy taste-testing local vendors and do the official state dance, the shag, all night long. Living in your new home in Sumter allows you to enjoy all that this beautiful place has to offer. Sumter also has numerous annual festivals and special events, beginning with the world-renowned Iris Festival each May. In addition to the Iris Festival, Sumter residents enjoy many other cultural events including Sumter-Shaw Streetfest, Scottish Country Fair, The Poinsettia Festival and Fantasy of Lights, Black Cowboy Festival, the Mary McLeod Bethune Birthday Celebration, the Rub O' the Green Golf Tournament, Sumter County Fair and much more. Affordable new homes for sale in Sumter makes this a great place to relocate or retire.
