When purchasing a new construction townhome in Charleston, West Ashley offers the best variety and affordability. Hunt Club, Ashley Park, and Middleborough in Shadowmoss are some of the neighborhoods currently offering newly constructed townhouses in West Ashley.
Hunt Club is a great place to find a brand new townhome with low HOA and regime fees. Fees are only $585 per year for HOA and $49 per month for the regime. These DR Horton homes are about 1,500 square feet with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a one car garage. The homes’ exteriors are built with beautiful hardy plank and stacked stone which gives the neighborhood a cozy feel rather than having all of the homes looking the same. The floor plans are open and have a galley kitchen with plenty of space, granite countertops, and 36 inch cabinets staggered with crown molding. Hardwood floors will be throughout the dining and family rooms. Vaulted ceilings and a walk-in closet adds a spacious feel to the master bedroom located upstairs. The two guest bedrooms are across the hall along with a linen closet and their own full bath. Natural gas heat and Rinnai tank-less hot water heaters are installed in each of these homes. Hunt Club is a medium size community located off of Bees Ferry Road that has mostly single family homes in the $300-600k range. There is a Publix grocery store and a Super Walmart within a very short drive. Downtown Charleston is only 20 minutes away, and Folly Beach is only a 30 minute drive.
Ashley Park is a mid-sized townhome community built by Manorhouse Builders. Current pricing on a 3 bedroom, 3 full bath unit is approximately $165K for an end unit. There are pond view options, and upgrades include hardwood flooring throughout the first floor including the foyer and stairs. More upgrades include crown molding, ceramic tile in bathrooms and in the hallway, granite countertops, 42 inch maple cabinets, plantation blinds throughout the home, and a double vanity in the master bathroom. A truly unique feature about these townhomes is that they have a 2 car garage. Not many townhomes in this price range have even a one car garage, let alone space for 2 cars. The homeowner’s association dues are $165 per quarter, and the dues include exterior landscaping. Ashley Park is located just off of Glenn McConnell Parkway and is within walking distance to West Ashley High School. It is about 15 minutes from downtown Charleston and about 25 minutes to the beach.
Middleborough in Shadowmoss has mostly large single family homes going over $600K. However, there is also a gated section with new construction townhomes. These townhomes are all 3 bedrooms, 3 full bath flats with a one or two car garage and range from 1,769 to 1,988 square feet. There are some units available on the golf course. Prices range from $285K to almost $400K. The upstairs flats have an elevator option. Standard features include 9 foot smooth ceilings, vent-free gas fireplaces, gas water heaters, crown molding in living areas, upgraded cabinets, hardwood floors in the living areas, tile floors in all of the baths, carpet in the bedrooms, and granite counter tops in the kitchen. Appliance packages include a refrigerator, washer, dryer, and microwave. Home owner’s dues are $200 annually plus $350 per month, which includes all exterior maintenance, upkeep of the amenities and all common areas. Amenities include a fitness room, a large gathering room, media center, a full service kitchen in the private clubhouse, swimming pool, and a hot tub.
