Berea and Sans Souci
About The Area
Many people tend to think Berea and Sans Souci are combined, but they're actually two separate areas that have their own unique touches.
In the late 1800s Berea was incorporated and named after Berea Baptist Church. Unlike other towns in the Upstate, the area had a focus on agriculture because of its fertile soil. Fast forward to the mid 1900s, Berea turned into a bedroom community with many different neighborhoods.
Just east of Berea is where you can find the town of Sans Souci. The area was named after Governor Benjamin Perry's vast estate which was called Sans Souci. In 1905 it was turned into a school for girl's and eventually became the Sans Souci Country Club.
You can find some amazing eateries in the area such as the Big Clock Restaurant of Berea, Capri's Pizzeria, the Swamp Rabbit Cafe and Grocery, and much more! There's also the Hampton Station which is one of the coolest redevelopments in the Upstate. They turned an old mill into a place where people can gather and have a sense of community. For things to do you can check out the Swamp Rabbit Trail and even go to a Greenville Triumph soccer game.
When it comes to housing in the area, prices tend to be more affordable while also being close to Downtown Greenville. Sometimes houses have to be renovated and up-fit to make them more modern, but this also gives you the ability to make the home your own.
