Best Neighborhoods on James Island SC:

Bayview Farms is located off Fort Johnson Road and offers more amenities than most James Island neighborhoods - 3 swimming pools, club house, tennis, basketball, and a play park. Most of these homes were built in the late 1990's to early 2000's, so many of these require some cosmetic updating. If you're looking to live within walking distance to James Island Charter High School, Bayview Farms is a great option to consider!

Clearview boasts spectacular views of Downtown, the Ravenel Bridge, and the Battery side of Charleston Harbor. Most of the homes in Clearview have brick exteriors, and this James Island neighborhood is an easy commute to Downtown - just 5 minutes, with no stop lights!

Cloudbreak Court is a newer neighborhood with Low Country style houses. Cloudbreak Court is off Woodland Shores Road, near the Municipal Golf Course.

Country Club offers homes that sit on large lots (up to 3/4 acre), options directly on the golf course, and deep water estates on Wappoo Creek. Buyers are willing to pay top dollar to live here because of the status associated with the County Club of Charleston and also its unbeatable location just a few minutes from Downtown.

Eaglewood Retreat is a newer neighborhood on James Island with both houses and town homes. It's off Fort Johnson Road and appeals to buyers wanting great Charleston style and nice upgrades (and buyers willing to trade some backyard space to focus on the house itself).

Eastwood is one of the few James Island communities overlooking Charleston Harbor. Also, many of the homes back up to May Forest Convent, so the homes feel private and secluded from the rest of Charleston. Most houses in Eastwood were built between the late 1960's and the late 1990's, so there is a wide range of styles.

Fort Johnson Estates is an older neighborhood popular for its brick houses and marsh views. Amenities include a swimming pool and club house.

Freeman's Point is a new waterfront community currently being developed on James Island. Located in the highly popular Seaside Plantation, Freeman's Point features low country style homes built by FrontDoor Communities. A swimming pool, pavilion, dock, and kids' park overlook the marsh.

Harbor Woods is one of the most popular James Island neighborhoods with older homes (especially brick). Located on Fort Johnson Road, this community is within walking distance of James Island Charter High School.

Jamestowne Village is a great community for buyers wanting affordable newer homes. This is a smaller neighborhood, made up of only one street (Swamp Fox Lane).

Lakeside Village features houses built in 2006 and 2007. Buyers generally like Lakeside Village because of the Low Country designs (many have large front porches, and some have double front porches) and upgraded cement plank siding.

Lawton Harbor is made up of houses built after 2000. Located on Affirmation Boulevard (off Harborview Road), Lawton Harbor gives an easy commute, with no stop lights on the way to Downtown.

Ocean Neighbors is one of the closest neighborhoods to Folly Beach (just a 3-5 minute drive). Amenities include a 12-acre lake with dock and a children's playground. Ocean Neighbors is one of the most popular neighborhoods on James Island, and you'll find nice community events hosted throughout the year.

Parrot Bluff is a marshfront community, and buyers generally like the mature trees and selection of traditional brick homes. Most of these were built in the late 1990's, and they have good square footage and acreage for James Island.

Parrot Creek is directly beside Parrot Bluff on Fort Johnson Road, so it's easy to get these two confused. However, Parrot Creek is one of the few gated communities on James Island. Many of these homes overlook the marsh and Parrot Creek, where the community gets its name. This neighborhood is within walking distance of a playground and tennis courts that are maintained by the county.

Riverland Terrace has houses built mostly in the 1940's and 1950's, so they're smaller than average for James Island. The neighborhood is off Maybank Highway and has a public play park and a public boat ramp within its borders. Also, several of these homes overlook the Muni Golf Course. Even though buyers don't get as much house for the money, many are willing to pay more to get the walkability and lifestyle of this popular community.

Seaside Plantation is a great neighborhood to consider in the under $400K range, but it also has some nice homes with views of the marsh and tidal creek in higher ranges. Many of these houses have private docks, and there is also a boat ramp and a dock with floater for the community to use. For buyers wanting a walkable neighborhood, Seaside Plantation is also a great match.

Stiles Point Plantation is located off Harbor View Road with no stop lights to get to Downtown. Some of these homes are marshfront, but the most sought after homes overlook the harbor, downtown Charleston, and the Ravenel Bridge. Amenities include a 5-acre park with tennis courts, a basketball court, and a play park.

Westfield Place is a small community made up of only 2 streets. Buyers usually love the classic Charleston style and hardy plank exteriors, but the main drawback tends to be the small lots. However, for those wanting charm and low maintenance, these houses are great options!

Wexford Sound offers a large pond that is stocked, a community dock, and a play park. Located off Secessionville Road, these homes were built mostly in the 1990's and generally only need some cosmetic updating to bring them up to new construction standards today.

White Point boasts incredible views of the Battery, the Charleston Harbor, and the Ravenel Bridge! As one of the smallest communities on James Island, it has one main street running through it - White Point Boulevard. Because of its size, there are typically only 1 or 2 houses for sale at any given time.

Woodward Pointe is one of our favorite neighborhoods on James Island! It features mostly brick homes that are relatively large, plus it has a great location just 5 minutes from peninsular Charleston.
