Looking for a townhouse in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina? This area has so many good options for home buyers to choose from right now. And, with all of the assessments going on with some of the condo communities right now, town homes are looking better and better as long term investment options for home buyers. I have included some of the most popular neighborhoods below along with some information about each community.
Dunes West townhouses (pictured) are about the most affordable way to live in this highly sought after community. With single family prices going up to about $3 million, the town home sections of Dunes West are a great way to get in on this community. The most affordable of these are in The Gates subsection, which only have two units per building (ensuring that all are end units). Egrets Walk and Heritage also have good options, but these are a little more expensive.
Charleston National is on most buyers' top picks for higher end properties, and this is a golfing community. These townhouses are some of the most affordable options you'll find in Charleston County for homes directly on the golf course. The main drawback to Charleston National, though, is its location. It is one of the furthest communities out on Hwy 17 in Mt. Pleasant, and Downtown Charleston is a good 25 minute drive away. For the price, it would certainly be worth considering other communities where you get a little more for the money and a better location. However, the golf is a huge draw for Charleston National.
Hamlin Plantation should certainly be on your list of townhouse neighborhoods to consider if you are looking in the $200-500K price range. Out of the almost two hundred clients we have shown this community to, only a few have not liked it. It has plenty of amenities (but it is not too big), and it has a good location in Mt. Pleasant for the price. Also, buyers tend to really like the low country feel of the home designs.
Park West, Charleston's largest neighborhood, has a large selection of town homes to choose from. Some of the more affordable subsections include The Gates and Kensington. If you are looking over $350K, you may want to consider Keswick, Preston, Kensington, and Hampshire. Also, Tennyson Row and Cambridge Commons are technically condos according to the regime fees. However, their two story set up has more of the feel of a townhouse. Tennyson Row especially would be worth a look because a lot of buyers really like the Charleston style of these.
Snee Farm is an older community in Mt. Pleasant, but it has a great location. It is just across the road from Towne Centre, which means that it is central to pretty much everything you could want - shopping, movies, restaurants, and the beaches. This is also a golfing community. And, these are also technically condos, but their two story layout is more of what most people associate with the townhouse style. You'll find that many of these need updating because of their age. However, if you are looking for an older town home with a good price and location, Snee Farm would be a great place to start your search.
