Mount Pleasant holds some of Charleston’s most popular neighborhoods. There are many reasons for this, but mainly it is due to the close proximity to downtown Charleston, its location to the surrounding beaches, and arguably the best public school system in the Charleston area. I’d like to give a brief summary for some of the more popular neighborhoods in Mt. Pleasant, so that it might be a helpful tool for those out of towners not familiar with the area.

Belle Hall- Belle Hall is great neighborhood with many subsections and a great location. It sits right off of I-526, giving it a great location to the airport, North Charleston, Daniel Island, and the beaches. A visit to downtown is easy via Hwy 17 south. Most of the homes for sale in Belle Hall are anywhere between 1,400 and 5,000 square feet in size. Prices start in the upper $200’s and typically top off at just under $2 million. ‘Hibben’ is a much acclaimed subsection of Belle Hall that gets a lot of attention due to the quality of materials used there. Belle Hall also has an elementary school for those looking for a quick commute to school for the kids!

Charleston National- A great golf community located close to the Isle of Palms beach and walking distance to the hospital, grocery store, and shopping. Charleston National is the perfect golf community, that also has tennis, and two swimming pools. Most of the homes in this neighborhood range between the 300’s and 400’s, however homes in the Victory Pointe subsection get into the millions.

Dunes West- Dunes West is a popular neighborhood up Hwy 41, and 20 minutes to downtown Charleston. This is a large neighborhood with a golf course, and multiple subsections with varying prices and builders, and plenty of walking paths/trails. One of the draws for this neighborhood is the fact that it is secured by a manned gate. Dunes West has much to offer including tennis, pool with water slide, play park, clubhouse, fitness, golf and gated access. Dunes West also offers boat storage and a boat ramp and dock. Homes behind the gate begin in the 300’s and get close to 2 million for deepwater on the Wando River.

I’On- I’On is a wonderful community that reminds one of living in downtown Charleston, but in Mount Pleasant. The community is divided into six smaller neighborhoods ("boroughs"), each planned around a preserved civic space such as a lake, park or square, and each containing 80 to 150 homes. The boroughs are Eastlake, Ionsborough, Shelmore, Westlake, Ponsbury and Montrose. Eight sites in I'On have been reserved for civic buildings, such as small churches or other community buildings. The homes and buildings in I'On bear the stamp of Lowcountry vernacular design, which usually includes most or all of the following elements: vertical scale (homes are taller than they are wide); natural exterior finishes such as wood clapboard, brick or stucco; spacious, raised porches; balconies; shuttered windows; simple and/or symmetrical rooflines; fences, walls and gates; and outbuildings such as garages, potting sheds, workshops or home offices.

The Old Village- The Old Village is Mount Pleasant’s premier neighborhood. Known for its history and location to downtown Charleston, this community is quite high in demand. Homes and cottages over 100 years old are found here. Oak-lined streets, salt in the air from the Charleston Harbor, and its premier location are all reasons why people enjoy living here. Homes here can be found in the 400’s, but typically priced starting in the 600’s and can get into the many millions for deepwater on the Charleston Harbor. Walk to parks, dining, and shopping.
