Gated Communities in Charleston, SC

golf community mt pleasant sc

Charleston gated communities range from small neighborhoods to entire islands. One of the most popular gated communities in Charleston is Dunes West. It has one of the nicest golf courses in Mt. Pleasant, wonderful amenities, and spectacular waterfront homes. The other main gated community in Mt. Pleasant is Ravens Run, which is much smaller than Dunes West. Also, Park Island is a brand new development in Mt. Pleasant. It is a gated island within the popular Park West community, and right now only home sites are being sold.

Many home buyers are surprised to hear that Mt. Pleasant only has three gated communities with single family homes. But, keep in mind that there are plenty of neighborhoods that have the upscale, secure feel of a gated community but are technically not gated. Some neighborhoods have only one entrance and/or have a range of multi-million dollar houses. These neighborhoods are not gated, but they're still very desirable areas to live. I'on is a good example.

James Island has one gated community - Parrot Creek. It is a relatively small marshfront community, and some of the homes have their own private docks. On Johns Island, you'll find three gated communities. Headquarters is an island community just off the Stono River bridge. Located across the marsh from Kiawah Island, Kiawah River Estates is the only golf course community on Johns Island. Grimball Gates has a community dock, and many of these homes have views of Grimball Creek and the Stono River.

Wild Dunes is a gated beach resort community located on the northern end of Isle of Palms. Seabrook Island and Kiawah Island also offer resort-style living, and both of these remote islands are completely gated.

Charleston also has some less expensive options for gated communities. Coosaw Creek Country Club is one of the nicest neighborhoods in North Charleston, and it has a golf course. In Goose Creek you'll find Crowfield Plantation, which also has a golf course. Of the many subsections, The Hamlets is one of the most popular since it has homes on the golf course. Stono Ferry in Hollywood (part of Rural West Ashley) is at least a 45 minute drive from downtown Charleston. Since it's in a more rural area, it has larger lot sizes than average for Charleston. It also has a golf course and an equestrian center.
