Scouted Spring 2015 Listings
Throughout the spring we spend a lot of time thinking about how we can refresh our homes—including the ultimate spring house overhaul: purchasing a new one. This is an excellent time of year to seek out a new abode; warm weather and abundant blooms make prospects feel oh so inviting, and the number of options seems to increase every week. Inspired by the uptick in inventory, we decided to explore what’s on the market in some of our TSG cities. The range was almost as impressive as the charming details each property offered. Whether you’re looking for a Lowcountry escape, a modern stunner outside the city (like the above, from Austin), or a room with an unbelievable view, prepare to Scout your next house:
