Lakeside Village features newer homes on James Island (built in 2006 and 2007). There are only about 30 homes in this neighborhood, which is made up of two streets, Misty Lake Drive and Midvale Avenue. There are 3 and 4 bedroom floor plans with 2 to 3 full baths, and the plans are quite open on the interior. Home sizes range from around 1,700 to about 2,800 square feet, and lot sizes are about ¼ of an acre, which is larger than normal on James Island for newer construction. (Most other new neighborhoods have an average lot size of .012 to 0.18.) These homes are built on a raised foundation with 2 to 3 car garages underneath the home. A raised foundation does not necessarily indicate that the owner has to pay flood insurance on the home, but in this case, you would. About 70% of Charleston is in a flood zone, so if you expect to pay flood insurance, then it is a bonus if you don’t have to. Flood Insurance usually runs about $400-$700 per year and is separate from your regular homeowners’ policy.
The exteriors of the homes in Lakeside Village are Hardy Plank (also called cement plank). Hardy plank siding is used on many of the lowcountry-style homes to reduce swelling caused by moisture in the air. It is not wood, so termites are not attracted to it. Also, it does not rot. It can be painted whatever color the owner chooses. Lakeside Village boasts large southern-style front porches, and some have double front porches. Inside, the homes are upgraded with granite counters, wood floors, and nice cabinetry. This neighborhood is zoned for high ranking elementary and high schools. The zoning is Harborview Elementary, James Island Middle, and James Island Charter High (internationally accredited). People looking to live on James Island in a newer home with upgrades, a large lot, and good schools tend to be drawn to this community. Being located just off Dills Bluff Road, Lakeside is within a short stroll to the public library as well as local BBQ and pizza joints. Also, its less than 10 minutes to downtown and to Folly Beach.
