Living in Lugoff – Elgin, SC

Lugoff and Elgin are two small towns located in Kershaw County, South Carolina. These charming communities offer residents close proximity to Columbia, an excellent school system, and plenty of outdoor activities. The real estate market in both towns is very affordable, making them a great option for home buyers.

Lugoff and Elgin are located in Kershaw County, just a short drive from the state capital of Columbia. This makes Lugoff and Elgin the perfect place for those who want to enjoy the benefits of small-town living while still being close enough to the city to take advantage of all it has to offer. 

Lugoff is between Elgin and Camden, with both being just a handful of minutes away. The Wateree River runs through Lugoff, as does Highway 1 & 601, which converge near the center of the town. Both Lugoff and Elgin are very small – with Lugoff’s population hovering just below 8,000 and Elgin’s under 2,000. These communities are perfect for those seeking a break from city life, or a great deal in a high-growth area. Both being in close proximity to Northeast Columbia, are prime for growth and development as suburban sprawl takes hold. We are seeing an uptick in new home construction in both areas – from starter homes to luxury estate communities.

One of the best things about Lugoff and Elgin is the excellent school system. The schools in Kershaw County are some of the best in the state and they offer students a great education and a safe environment.

Lugoff and Elgin are both just minutes from Village at Sandill, an outdoor mall in Northeast Columbia, as well as the many shops and restaurants located in Camden, SC. Village at Sandhill offers over 100 different shops and dining options, such as Yankee Candle, Loft, Moe’s Southwest Grill, The Children’s Place, and more. The outdoor mall also hosts family-friendly events throughout the year, in partnership with its vendors.

Another great thing about Lugoff and Elgin is that the real estate market is thriving. This is good news for both buyers and sellers because it means that there are plenty of houses on the market at all price points. Whether you’re looking for a starter home or your forever home, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.
