Residential and Cottages
“Historic Aiken provides a wealth of residential options from the cottages that once housed the employees of the wealthy aristocrats that comprised the “Winter Colony” to the mansions that these seasonal residents called home. There are also options which include a treasure trove of homes built in the 1950's and 1960's to accommodate the growth spurred by the arrival of the Savannah River Site to new construction townhomes and single-family residences for the large number of people moving to Aiken to take advantage of wonderful small-town lifestyle. Just browse through and be assured that Aiken will provide you with the home that suits your needs.”
