Upon completion in 1929 the old Beth Israel Synagogue on Townes Street served as the home for the first local jewish congregation in Greenville. Even Max Heller, an immigrant himself who would one day become mayor of Greenville overseeing our city’s transformation in the early 1980’s, joined this congregation and attended services there for many years.
Following three decades of prosperity multiple tenants and owners utilized the building for other denominational services and an art studio as late as 2004 when the building was sold. In the decade that followed the building sat empty and suffered from decay.
The new owners purchased the property in 2013 and retained local architect Trey Cole and Cole Properties to help renovate the historic building into a private residence.
As with all of our homes, our outdoor spaces are just as important if not more than the indoors. The owners wanted several features within their outdoor oasis including a pool, small green area, and patio space for relaxing and enjoying time with their family and friends. Our team worked with Cole Properties to integrate desired features and refine the design for the most efficient functionality possible. Multiple outdoor spaces and terraces at varying elevations created design challenges but resulted in a visually striking outdoor space exemplifying urban living at its best. Best of all their dogs are allowed to swim in the pool!
