Bayview Farms is a neighborhood located in the middle of James Island and is known best for having two neighborhood pools and tennis courts. This neighborhood is surrounded by fresh water ponds and saltmarsh on one side. Homes in Bayview Farms are well priced and offer a good value for price versus size. Bayview Farms is located off Fort Johnson Road, which is one of the main roads on James Island. Just across Fort Johnson and down a block is James Island Charter High School, so this location is convenient if your child goes there. However, when school lets out, traffic on Fort Johnson gets a little heavy. The closest grocery store is Harris Teeter on Harborview Road, which is only a couple of minutes by car. There are some independently owned restaurants close by, as well. Bohemian Bull and Smokey Oak, a BBQ joint, are popular comfort food eats for the locals. If you or your child plays soccer, there are recreational soccer fields directly beside the neighborhood. On Saturday mornings, the residents whose homes back up to the soccer fields (on the west side of Wayfarer Lane) may hear some cheering from their back porches.
Most Bayview Farms homes were built in the early 1990’s to early 2000’s and have vinyl exteriors with 3-5 bedrooms and at least 2 full bath floor plans. There are 1 and 2 story homes with an average lot size of ¼ of an acre or less. The very back of Bayview Farms backs up to tidal creeks which open up to the Clark Sound (waterways that eventually open up to the Charleston Harbor and then the Atlantic Ocean). You could take a small skiff out to the harbor at high tide if you own a home backing up to one of these tidal creeks. Tidal View Lane and Salt Marsh Cove are the two streets in Bayview Farms that are on a tidal creek with beautiful views. There are also two large ponds in the very center of the neighborhood. The pool and clubhouse have a nice view of one of them. The interior sides of Portabella Lane are mostly where the pond home sites are located. The folks who end up purchasing a home in Bayview Farms usually are looking for an inexpensive home that is newer, has a neighborhood pool, is close to the beach and downtown Charleston, and is zoned for one of the top rated elementary schools on James Island (Stiles Point Elementary).
