I wanted to bring a new listing to your attention. A home was just listed yesterday in one of the most sought-after subsections of Park West. This home is ideal for buyers looking for a classic Charleston style home with great architectural details – but without the hassle of living downtown or the upkeep of an older home. I’ve included the remarks section of the report below so that you can read about the home’s features. For more information and pictures, click here!

As the largest neighborhood in Charleston, the Park West community in Mt. Pleasant makes its way onto many home buyers’ short lists of neighborhoods to consider. The traffic lights at the two entrances on Hwy 17 and Hwy 41 allow easy access to and from the rest of Mt. Pleasant. Prospective buyers are generally very impressed with the reflecting pool and landscaping upon entering the community. And the subsections are more hidden compared to other communities. Overall, Park West feels quite secluded from the rest of Mount Pleasant. There are lots of trees, green spaces, and walking trails throughout. Much of this will probably be developed in the future, but for now residents can enjoy a good deal of space between many of the subsections.
We get a lot of questions about schools in Charleston, SC – especially from home buyers relocating to Charleston. When clients tell us they want to be in a good public school district, we give them some of the resources we’ve collected over the years. Most of these are school district websites along with various sites devoted to school rankings for the Charleston area and for the state.
The cities of Mt. Pleasant and Summerville have the highest ranked public schools in Charleston. Summerville is divided into several districts. But, if you look at the rankings, you’ll see that Dorchester District 2 receives the highest marks.
When people find out they have two options for places to live in Charleston with such good public schools, they…
You’ll find a range of waterfront homes in Charleston, SC. This broad category of homes includes marshfront, deep water, shallow water, tidal creek, riverfront, pondfront, and beachfront. So, waterfront homes in Charleston can either be on fresh water or salt water.
The most expensive waterfront real estate in Charleston is beachfront homes. Charleston has six beaches to choose from, and each has its own style – Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, Wild Dunes, Seabrook Island, and Kiawah Island. Because Charleston beach houses can be so expensive (they start a little under $1.5 Million), many buyers gladly take a condo or townhouse instead in order to stay under the million dollar price range.
If you’re looking for a waterfront home…
With so many nationally ranked golf courses in Charleston, SC, golf is a huge attraction in the area. Some of the best golf courses are located in Mt. Pleasant and Kiawah Island, but you’ll find plenty of options throughout the Charleston area. In fact, there is at least one golf course in 12 of the 16 Charleston areas. Total, Charleston boasts 22 public and private courses and 13 golf course communities. Most golf courses in Charleston are open to the public and don’t require you to live in the golf community to play. However, there are a few courses on which you can only play by proof of residence or by invitation from a resident.
Homes in Charleston golf communities generally offer large common areas and better than average amenities, such as…
