Mount Pleasant SC Real Estate
Mount Pleasant is one of the most desirable cities to live in Charleston because of its close proximity to downtown Charleston (15-25 minutes away) and the beaches at Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms (5-10 minutes). Entertainment and restaurant options are evenly scattered throughout the suburb, so most homes are within just a few minutes’ drive of going to see a movie, dining out, or shopping.
Great public schools are also a major selling point to potential home buyers. The South Carolina Annual School Report Card (which rates the state’s public schools) has given Wando High the highest rating possible for five years in a row. The elementary and middle schools are among some of the highest ranked in the tri-county area.
Mount Pleasant has a wide range of real estate options including starter homes, multi-million deep water estates, circa 1800 houses, and low maintenance condos. About three-fourths of the homes in Mt. Pleasant have been built since 1995. So, if you’re looking for a newer home, this is a great area to consider since newer homes are mostly what’s available for sale.
Most neighborhoods have full amenities like a swimming pool, tennis, and club house. Mt. Pleasant also has four golfing communities: Rivertowne Country Club, Dunes West (which is gated), Charleston National, and Snee Farm.
It should come as no surprise that Mt. Pleasant is the 9th fastest growing city in the country. This suburb is consistently the top choice among home buyers looking for a high quality of life and an upscale feel that’s close to historic Charleston.
