Many Mount Pleasant home buyers want to find a neighborhood where they can walk to local shops and restaurants. Since Charleston has a temperate climate, it’s the perfect place to utilize your two best assets year round – your feet! There’s something about getting outdoors and in the sunshine that can put a little hop in your step. The Mount Pleasant area has a few neighborhoods that are quite conducive to this active, convenient, and environmentally friendly lifestyle.

Seaside Farms, Sweetgrass neighborhood, and Hidden Lakes in Mount Pleasant are within a short walk to The Shoppes at Seaside and a little longer walk to Towne Centre. Prices range from about $115k-500K for a condo or townhome, and $275-950K for a single family home. So, these neighborhoods meet a wide range of prices for homes buyers. Seaside Farms is the only one of these subdivisions that has a community pool. If you like to run or ride a bike, there is a path all the way to Isle of Palms Beach from the Isle of Palms Connector that is very close by.

Between the two shopping centers, you are sure to find everything you need and want. The Shoppes at Seaside offer delicious restaurants such as Gilligan’s Steamer and Raw Bar, Yamato Japanese Steakhouse, and Basil (a Thai restaurant), as well as everyday Piggly Wiggly grocery and Target shopping. The center also offers coffee shops, fitness studios, doctors’ offices, and everything you would need to pamper yourself from a massage parlor to salons. The Mount Pleasant Towne Centre is an outdoor Mall with many chain retail stores and restaurants along with unique independent retailers. There is also a stadium seating movie theater located in Towne Centre.

I’on subdivision in Mount Pleasant is another neighborhood to consider for active home buyers. There are sidewalks and paths which make it easy to stroll down to I’on Square for a hardy meal at O’Brion’s Pub and Grille, Langdon’s Restaurant and Wine Bar, Carter’s Kitchen, or The Square Onion. You’ll also find the occasional festival, concert, or farmer’s market taking place in the square. There are also charming shops and business offices in the square. I’on is set on the water, and residents can opt to join The Creek Club, the community boat ramp, dock, and clubhouse. I’on Club is a members only fitness club which includes swimming, tennis, fitness, and community functions for the whole family.

Some buyers love being able to walk to find entertainment, get a drink, or grab a bite to eat. Others enjoy living in a community that offers a range of options for an outdoors, active lifestyle. These four neighborhoods are great starting point if you’re looking for houses for sale in Mount Pleasant that are as close as possible to restaurants and shopping.
