Neighborhood Spotlight: Pine Ridge, Bluffton, SC
This very nice community is located just off of Buckwalter Parkway and also has an entrance off of McCracken Circle. The great thing about Pine Ridge is that it is in easy walking distance and close proximity to the Bluffton School Campus - with early childhood learning center, elementary school, middle school, and just around the circle, the Bluffton High School. Also a short walk away is the Boys and Girls Club.
The neighborhood was built by Centex Homes in 2004 and there are 295 single family homes - all of this community was built-out long ago so all homes are re-sales.
There is not an amenity center or pool, but a very nice playground nestled in a nicely wooded and priva area, great shade even on the hottest summer day. If residents prefer to join a club, membership may be purchased at the Pinecrest Golf Club which also has a pool, pavilion, and tennis courts.
