Daniel Island Real Estate

Family Friendly Community with a Country Club Feel

Daniel Island is located just 20 minutes northeast of Downtown Charleston. This master-planned community was started in the mid-’90s with a focus on building neighborhoods around parks, schools, and local businesses to create a lifestyle around the community. Today, the 4,000-acre island situated between the Wando and Cooper Rivers emphasizes the importance of conservation and green space - an effort that can be appreciated when walking through the many parks, 25 miles of leisure trails, and over 20 miles of rivers, creeks, and marsh. There are two sections of the island, Daniel Island and Daniel Island Park. The Daniel Island section generally offers better walkability to downtown Daniel Island and the schools, while Daniel Island Park offers larger lots, with two private golf courses and a private country club within the Daniel Island Park community. Both areas offer great amenities and well-built homes with style.

Daniel Island, SC - Real Estate and Homes

Daniel Island is centrally located just 20 minutes from Downtown Charleston, 10 minutes to Mount Pleasant, and around 20 minutes to both Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island. The combination of great public schools, sidewalks throughout, parks, and neighborhood pools makes Daniel Island a great place to raise a family. Many residents own golf carts so that they can enjoy access to all of the amenities including three pools, tennis courts, neighborhood docks, a private neighborhood boat landing, and the commercial district with restaurants and shopping.

Daniel Island real estate fetches some of the highest prices in Charleston, with current values reaching almost $7 million. Ideally situated between the Cooper and Wando Rivers, Daniel Island offers a large selection of riverfront and deepwater homes. The island is also laced with tidal creeks which provide the privacy and marsh views that many homebuyers are looking for when they move to Charleston.

Daniel Island Neighborhoods

You'll find 8 neighborhoods surrounding downtown Daniel Island.  

Smythe Park is the newest section of Daniel Island, and it's my favorite because I gravitate to newer homes and love the family appeal to the neighborhood.  Smythe Park is centered around a 22-acre park with Smythe Lake for fishing and water views.  Smythe Park has walking trails, the Pirates Cove Playground, and is within walking distance to two of the best neighborhood pools on Daniel Island.  These homes are also within walking distance to the Daniel Island School and Bishop England High School.  If you are looking for a guest house, many of these homes have small guest studios above their detached garages.

Daniel Island Park is the most sought-after neighborhood because it has the Daniel Island Club within its borders.  These homes are generally more expensive than the rest of Daniel Island, but in many cases you get what you pay for because these are all custom-built homes.  Homeowners in Daniel Island Park have the ability to join the Daniel Island Club with a social membership or upgrade to the golf or sports memberships.  Daniel Island Park offers condos, townhouses, and houses, and you'll find that many of these overlook the marsh and golf courses.

Captain's Island is a 90-acre island within Daniel Island Park that is surrounded by the Wando River and Ralston Creek.  There are around 130 lots and most have marsh or river views.  This is the latest and last section of Daniel Island to be developed and will have a separate clubhouse called the River Porch on the Wando River.

Edgefield Park is similar to Smythe Park and close enough to enjoy everything around Smythe Park and has its own pool.  Edgefield is the farthest neighborhood south on the island, so it is a little farther away from the commercial area which is good for quiet enjoyment but bad for walking to things.

Barfield Park is a great place to find entry price single-family homes and some of the best townhomes with marsh views on Daniel Island.

Center Park is located right in the middle of the island given homeowners easy access to the Daniel Island Schools and the many restaurants and shops in the commercial district of Daniel Island.  Center Park is a good balance of location and finding large mature trees that are less common in Edgefield and Smythe Parks.

Cochran Park has mostly elevated homes, many of which are marsh front.  This neighborhood is set out with a little space between it and the rest of Daniel Island, given these homes more private lots.

Codner's Ferry Park was one of the earliest neighborhoods developed on Daniel Island and many of these back up to Beresford Creek giving great waterfront home options.  Buyers love this area because of the mature landscaping and trees and the Daniel Island neighborhood dock and boat ramp are located within walking distance to these homes.

Etiwan Park has some of the most affordable houses on Daniel Island and is close to the Scott Park Pool.  There is a large recreational field in Etiwan Park that hosts soccer and football games and gives a great area for kids to play field sports.

Pierce Park is the location for the best neighborhood pool in Daniel Island.  Pierce Park is also centrally located so it's easy to walk to downtown Daniel Island, the schools, and Smythe Park.  The townhomes in Pierce Park are some of the best values on Daniel Island and a great balance between privacy and price.

Daniel Island Condos and Townhomes

Daniel Island condos and townhomes offer a great value for the buyer looking to live in an upscale location with the best amenities in Charleston. Prices range from the mid 300's to over a million, but with single-family homes starting over $700k this is a great way to get on the island. Most of the condos and townhomes on Daniel Island are located near the commercial district making walking to restaurants and stores as easy as you will find in Charleston.

Daniel Island Schools

Daniel Island Day Care - Daniel Island Academy is the main daycare center, serving children from preschool (1-year-old) through kindergarten (6 years old). It gives full-day as well as half-day options and enrolls about 300 kids.

Daniel Island Elementary and Middle Schools - The Daniel Island School is for children pre-kindergarten through 8th grade and is part of the Berkeley School District. The Daniel Island School scores an A on Niche.com with a 17/1 student/teacher ratio and around 1,200 students.

Daniel Island High Schools - Phillip Simmons High School is a new Berkley County school built for Daniel Island. Phillip Simmons scores well but many residents prefer Bishop England because it's conveniently located on Daniel Island and is one of the best private schools in South Carolina. Phillip Simmons scores a B+ on Niche.com and has a 12/1 student/teacher ratio with around 600 students. Bishop England is a private Catholic school with an A rating on Niche.com and has a 12/1 student/teacher ratio and around 800 students. Bishop England was founded in 1915 and offers sailing, golf, lacrosse, ice hockey, wrestling, and swimming in addition to the usual sports like football and soccer that you'd expect to find at any high school.

Daniel Island - Lifestyle and Things to Do

Whether you are walking, running, biking, or just cruising around on your golf cart, Daniel Island offers plenty to do without leaving the island.

Neighborhood Pools - There are three Daniel Island neighborhood pools and they are all heated and cooled to extend the season into the cooler months. Pierce Park Pool is the main pool with Wando River Views, a large covered pavilion, and a playground. The Edgefield Park Pool is the newest and typically not as busy. The Scott Park Pool is the smallest but very convenient for that part of the island. These pools are open from 5 am to 10 pm seasonally, generally from April until September.  The Daniel Island Club is a private club close by with membership options for homeowners that are looking for country club amenities.

Trails and Parks - Daniel Island has over 20 miles of trails that criss-cross the island and connect hundreds of acres of parks. There are 50 parks in all with most consisting of a few acres of natural settings, and the largest, Smythe Park, has 22 acres and a large lake where you will find residents fishing, playing sports, or doing morning yoga on the grass.

Restaurants - With close to 20 restaurants to choose from and ferry service directly from Daniel Island to Downtown Charleston on the weekends you will have plenty of dining options.

Boating - Wedged between the Cooper and Wando Rivers, Daniel Island has plenty of waterfronts to enjoy. Residents have access to a private boat ramp and dock making it easy to get out and enjoy the endless waterways surrounding Charleston. Daniel Island Park residents have a separate boat ramp on Ralston Creek as well.

Food Truck Friday - Every Friday from 5 pm to 8 pm, the Daniel Island POA has arranged for food trucks at the Edgefield Park Pool (1651 Oak Leaf Street), weather permitting and running seasonally.

Governer's Park - Governor's Park is owned and maintained by the City of Charleston and gives Daniel Island residents baseball fields, a playground, a dog park, as well as fields for flag football and soccer.

Daniel Island Recreation Center - The Daniel Island Recreation Center is a 22,000 square foot public indoor facility that includes an indoor basketball and volleyball court, a weight room, and several multipurpose rooms.

The Daniel Island Ferry - The ferry provides round-trip access to Downtown Charleston so that you can enjoy a 30-minute boat ride with bar service and enjoy all that Charleston has to offer.  The Daniel Island Ferry also offers sunset harbor cruises.

Family Circle Tennis Center - This Private tennis facility at 600 Daniel Island Drive offers 17 courts.  Players can sign up to compete with other tennis players based on skill level.

Credit One Stadium - Formally the Family Circle Tennis Center, the Credit One Stadium is being renovated and enlarged to better serve the community as a venue for live music, sports, and festivals.  This venue has been used for all of this before, but the new stadium should bring more events and entertainment to Daniel Island.

The Daniel Island Club

The Daniel Island Club - The Daniel Island Club boasts nationally ranked golf courses designed by Tom Fazio and Rees Jones, a beautiful clubhouse with a ballroom that is often used for weddings and other events, 2 saltwater resort-style pools, a state of the art fitness center, croquet, and bocce lawns, and an impressive tennis center which has the only grass court in Charleston. If you're looking for unparalleled amenities in a country club setting, you can join with different tiers of membership even if you don't live in Daniel Island Park.

Designed by Tom Fazio, the Beresford Creek Course offers incredible views of the marshes and creeks surrounding Daniel Island. When the course was opened in 2000, it was ranked by Golfweek magazine as a top real estate course in the country. Fazio himself commented that the Beresford Creek Course stands out among all of the courses he's created, "partly because of the width and placement of the holes, the massive trees, the open marshes along the fairways - and the position of the holes along expansive corridors of land."

The Ralston Creek Course designed by Rees Jones also boasts great marsh and creek views. When asked about the layout of the course, Jones remarked that it "has all the elements of a stern test of golf, including strategically placed, sculpted fairway bunkers, diversely contoured greens, greenside bunkers placed to protect the championship pin positions, and enough length for the long hitters". Since it was opened in 2006, the Ralston Creek Course has been named among the Top Ten Best New Private Courses in the US by Golf Digest.

Surrounded by marsh and golf courses, the Daniel Island Clubhouse is an ideal setting for hosting a large party or simply dining with family. The Grill Room offers casual dining with indoor and outdoor seating. It also overlooks the Ralston Creek Golf Course and marsh. The more formal Dining Room is open for dinner on Thursdays through Saturdays and specializes in Lowcountry cuisine. The Pub offers a smaller, more intimate setting for cocktails and tapas.

The Tennis Pavilion has 11 courts total - 8 Har-Tru courts, 2 hard courts, and 1 grass court (the only one in Charleston). The Pavilion offers a pro shop just for tennis apparel as well as teams and leagues to play with. Tennis pros teach at programs and clinics for every age and ability. You'll even find a state-of-the-art video analysis to improve your performance.

While real estate on Daniel Island is more expensive than similarly situated homes in Mt. Pleasant, the scale of Daniel Island outpaces similar communities in Mount Pleasant like I’On, Dunes West, and Carolina Park.
