Dunes West is a gated golf community that is one of the most desirable to live in Mount Pleasant. Dunes West is one of the largest subdivisions in the area with subsections of single family homes, townhomes, and condos. Known throughout the Charleston area for its luxurious amenities, Dunes West offers a golf course designed by Arthur Hills, a pool for families and two lap pools, tennis courts with a tennis pro, club house, community dock, boat ramp, boat storage, play park, fitness center, and walking trails. No wonder Dunes West is consistently a top choice among home buyers – you won’t find a neighborhood in Mt. Pleasant with nicer amenities or more options to choose from! The homes for sale in Dunes West are mostly zoned for Charles Pinckney Elementary, Cario Middle, and Wando High, which are among the highest ranked schools in Mt. Pleasant.

Palmetto Hall and Cypress Pointe are the least expensive subsections because they are located just outside of the gated section of Dunes West. Darts Pointe, Richmond Cove, Marsh Cove, The Harbour, Whispering Marsh, and Dunes Mill are some of the most popular subsections that are within the gated portion. If you are looking for golf course homes, Brickfall Estates, Osprey Cove, and Hartford Village may be a good starting point. The Marsh Landing subsection is a nice place to find marshfront homes. Wagner Pointe within Dunes West features homes that are both marshfront and on the golf course, making this perhaps the most prestigious subsection in the entire community. Dunes West sees a strong demand from buyers in the Mt. Pleasant real estate market from $200K to $1 million plus.
