Welcome to Eastover
A burgeoning neighborhood close to the heart of Greenville
A quickly developing neighborhood nestled between Nicholtown and Overbrook, Eastover is quaint, walkable, and beloved by its residents both new and old. It’s also only a mile from downtown, surrounding it with exciting things on all sides. Eastover holds its own with plenty of restaurants and parks to enjoy.
Eastover was developed in the early 1900s along Beechwood Avenue. When Cleveland Park was officially opened in 1926, the neighborhood of Eastover began to thrive. Highly sought-after as a beautiful neighborhood on the edge of lush nature, houses were built and residents flocked to the area.
The residential lots are smaller here than in other neighborhoods, and houses sit closer to one another. This gives the area a cozy, compact feel. The houses themselves are a mixture of styles, with the primary one being a Craftsman-style bungalow, many of which date back to the 1930s. It’s a beautiful neighborhood to live in currently, and it’s only poised to get better from here.
