Park West is one of the hottest communities for the condo market right now in Charleston. Although I recommend looking at other neighborhoods, too, Park West should definitely be on your list of communities to visit if you're considering buying a condo. After working with many buyers who have chosen Park West out of the many communities in Charleston, I have put together some information about these condos.
1) Price: Park West has two affordable subsections with condos. Madison at Park West has more affordable condos, with prices starting in the low $100's for 1 bed and 1 bath. For a newer condo this close to downtown and the beaches, you won't find a better price than this! The Battery at Park West is the other main Park West condo community, and their prices are starting in the low $200's.
2) Location: Park West in Mount Pleasant has 2 main entrances (off Hwy 17 and Hwy 41). It's about 10 minutes from the beaches, Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island. Downtown Charleston is about a 15 minute drive. Towne Center, which has shopping, restaurants, and a movie theater, is just a 5 minute drive. So, it has a great location!
3) Amenities: Park West has excellent amenities, including a pool, club house, fitness center, tennis courts, and a play park. All residents can use these general Park West facilities. However, The Battery also has a dog washing area, a very nice outdoor kitchen with an oyster pit, and an elevator in every building.
If you're wanting to compare Park West condos condos for sale to others in the area, I would also take a look at Cambridge Lakes, Charleston National, Dunes West, Seaside Farms, and Southampton Pointe. These are the most comparable condo communities to Park West based on our experience (and also home buyer feedback).
