215 Southwind Drive

We have been here 17 years and its time to retire down South.We just listed the home we’ve come to love. It will be hard to leave this quiet cul-de-sac in Doylestown. I hope if you read this and like what you see, you’ll contact me or your realtor to arrange a showing. It will make some buyer very happy. If you know that buyer, put them in touch as well.

The full write-up of this Glenn Hess/Phil Mack custom built home is here. Its ~4300 square feet and now listed at $609k

The hardest part of course is leaving the many friends and few family members behind here in beautiful Bucks county! We will, of course, have a big bash after we sell! And all are welcome to come visit in SC to cycle, play golf, hang out!!

Moving can be stressful

We have been planning to move to Greenville, SC for 4 years after falling in love with the area. In 2008, we bought a beautiful lot on Cherokee Valley Golf Club north of town. Greenville has been rated in top 5 places to retire this year by Fortune.

Lot in Cherokee Valley

The lot is now for sale since its beauty didn’t make us realize it would be a bit far for me to commute to my work location in Kings Mountain, NC, even a few days a week. If this location is for you, drop me a line !!

When we went down to Greenville to check out the housing market last week, we fell in love with the East End of Greenville. The area south of I-85 in the Five Forks, Greer and Simpsonville area has a great balance of location, attractions, airport and proximity to down town.

Of course, we fell in love with a home in nearby Greer, SC. We went to put in an offer on Friday and the homeowner withdrew their house from the market. After the disappointment wore off, we realized that there are so many more important things in life such as family, health and happiness. And that right house will surface when we are ready to move (after selling our place below)

We will be sad to leave the few family members and dear friends we have here, but we are executing our early retirement plan and have some equally wonderful friends awaiting our arrival.. My friends at CB Hearthside will help us list our place here in Doylestown just after Super Bowl 2011, when the spring housing season begins

If you know of anyone who is interested in moving to Doylestown and the wonder that it and Bucks County has happening, let us know!
