Old and new, traditional and contemporary, ornate and refined. Mount Pleasant’s residential neighborhoods offer the best of both past and present.
Restored Victorian-era homes define the Main Street aesthetic, many of them situated on well-manicured lawns and shaded by towering oaks and maples. A number of these residences are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and visitors come from across the state and beyond to view, photograph and, on occasion, paint their beauty.
Not everyone wants an old home, though. Mount Pleasant has seen a surge in new construction over the past decade, with upscale subdivisions sprouting on the town’s perimeter. The homes in these subdivisions are spacious and equipped with the latest amenities, including large entertaining and recreation areas, pools and well-appointed kitchens. A few are linked to area parks and the downtown via Mount Pleasant’s new, concrete bike and walking trail.
For renters, choices range from contemporary loft-style apartments within historic downtown buildings to town homes and multi-bedroom houses. Further housing options include starter homes, heartland farmsteads and plenty of senior-focused facilities offering both independent and assisted living options.
And housing options aren’t limited to Mount Pleasant. Henry County’s smaller communities, Wayland, Winfield, New London, Salem, Olds, Hillsboro and Rome, offer both affordable, attractive homes and the pleasure of living among neighbors you will grown to know and love. And for those who desire a rural acreage, area realtors are ready to make the dream of a home beyond the range of street lights come true.
