Lullwater at RiverwoodGreenville, SC – Greenville-based Graycliff Capital Partners, LLC (Graycliff Capital), a leading developer/owner in the multi-family sector, has acquired Lullwater at Riverwood, a well-maintained, Class-A, gated apartment community in Evans, Georgia – voted Money magazine’s No. 1 Best Place to Live in America for 2020. Built in 2015, Lullwater at Riverwood is ideally situated between downtown Augusta and the waters of Clark Hills Lake – familiarly known as “Georgia’s Freshwater Coast.” According to Money, this part of the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) continues to attract new arrivals with plenty of good-paying jobs in healthcare administration and the military nearby.

“Graycliff invests in underserved submarkets of areas with tremendous growth potential and Lullwater at Riverwood fits well with this strategy,” said Paul Aiesi, partner at Graycliff Capital. “The property’s location offers a perfect balance of convenience to shopping, healthcare, downtown Augusta, and major employers – with ready access to a number of outdoor recreational activities, including biking, fishing, boating, hiking and hunting in designated areas. This acquisition perfectly complements our existing holdings in neighboring South Carolina.”

Lullwater at Riverwood is a 212-unit, upscale residential community comprised of garden-style apartment homes featuring one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans – with special features such as walk-in closets and built-in office nooks.

A limited number of detached garages, as well as storage units, are available for rent at an additional cost per month.

Best-in-class community amenities include a resort-style swimming pool, fitness center, cyber café, outdoor grilling area, car care area, playground and dog park. Exterior improvements will include adding an additional dog park, two fire pit/amenity areas, upgrades to the playground, adding TVs to the fitness center, and updated pool furniture. Additionally, a concierge system will be added to the clubhouse.

The property is convenient to the area’s major employers in healthcare, education, manufacturing and energy, as well as Fort Gordon – home to the US Army’s Cyber Command operations.

Lullwater at Riverwood will be operated by Greenville-based NHE, Inc., which also manages The Ironwood Apartments, a well-performing property in nearby North Augusta, S.C. owned and operated by Graycliff Capital.
