Firethorne is an upscale country club community located on the North Carolina/South Carolina border. Started in 1998, Firethorne Country Club offers luxurious amenities including an 18-hole golf course, 30,000 square feet of clubhouse and banquet space, and swimming pools complete with a water slide.
On the Union County side of the community, children currently attend highly regarded Marvin Elementary, Marvin Ridge Middle, and Marvin Ridge High School. Lancaster County, SC residents attend Indian Land Elementary, Middle, and High schools. Some children also take advantage of the cotillion classes conveniently offered at the clubhouse by the National League of Junior Cotillions, Union County. (I would be happy to put you in touch with the director if you have an interest in your child joining the fun of the fall-to-spring season.)
Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the challenging course designed by Tom Jackson as well as the putting green and driving range. Likewise, tennis players will be impressed by the 10 courts and two full-time tennis professionals. The whole family can enjoy the water in Firethorne with its 4 pools, water slide, and swim team opportunities. Social membership is required for homeowners. Golf memberships are additional.
Housing options are as equally appealing as the amenities in Firethorne. Homes generally range from $600,000 to just over $1 million, but there are some homes in the neighborhood with elevators and golf course views that may go as high as $3 million. Home seekers can choose from an array of styles to suit their individual tastes in this neighborhood. From traditional brick charmers to Old World European elegance to stone and stucco beauties, these homes come in a range of sizes and types to suit your family’s needs.
