Many buyers searching for a home in the Charleston SC real estate market request communities with a boat ramp. Having a boat ramp in your neighborhood is very convenient because it usually gives you a shorter wait time compared with public ramps. Anyone who’s boated knows that waiting to launch or waiting to get out of the water after a full day of fun on the water is a chore. Using a boat launch in your community may make the difference in whether you actually take advantage of your boat or not. Mount Pleasant is one area (of many) in Charleston that features a good selection of communities with a boat ramp and dock. Brickyard Plantation, Dunes West, and I’On are some of the most popular neighborhoods among home buyers.
Brickyard Plantation’s pricing begins around the $350’s and goes up to multi-million dollar homes. The HOA fee is approximately $745 per year, and it includes various amenities: five lighted tennis courts, a boat landing with a ramp and dock, boat storage, walking/biking trails, a clubhouse, two pools (one pool is Olympic sized), an exercise room, a soccer field, a basketball court, and ponds.
