Ocean Neighbors is located off Old Military Road, which is just off Folly Road before you get to the Folly Beach Piggly Wiggly grocery. These single family, vinyl homes are currently selling for around the mid 200’s to the low 400’s. The floor plans are mostly 3 to 4 bedrooms, at least 2 full baths, 1.5 or 2 stories, and about 1,500 to 2,500 square feet. Some of the 240 or so homes in Ocean Neighbors back up to the 12 acre pond, which can be used for fishing or kayaking. Some houses are on raised foundations, while others are built on crawl space foundations. Flood insurance is required, as it is in 70% of Charleston (you should pay $400-$700 per year). There are a few homes on the backside of the pond that require higher flood insurance premiums, so make sure your Realtor looks into these estimates before you purchase any home in Charleston.
Amenities in Ocean Neighbors include two common spaces with a gazebo and fishing pier, and there is also a nice, wooden children’s play park. Yards are usually 0.14 to 0.23 acres and normally are not very private because most homes back up to several other yards. Almost all of the lots are fenced in with a wooden privacy fence. When folks are looking for an affordable single family home as close to the beach as they can get, Ocean Neighbors often is the perfect spot because it is only a 3-5 minute drive to the beach, and there is a bike path that runs all the way to the beach on Folly Road beginning at the intersection of Military and Folly Roads. It only takes 15 minutes or so to ride your bike to the beach. There are also two public boat landings between the neighborhood and the beach, and the neighborhood allows boats as long as it is stored behind your fence. Ocean Neighbors hosts many events throughout the year where families get together to trick or treat or participate in an Easter egg hunt or an oyster roast.
James Island Elementary (rated G for Good) is just across Folly Road from the neighborhood. Some homes in Ocean Neighbors are zoned for Harborview Elementary School (Ranked E for Excellent) also, so look at the elementary school district for the home you purchase if a certain school is important to you. The middle school is James Island Middle, and James Island Charter High (highly ranked in Charleston and in SC).
