DANIEL ISLAND REAL ESTATE:
Condos and Single Family Homes: $175,000-$3M
Vacant land: $230,000-$5.7M
Situated between the Wando and Cooper Rivers, Daniel Island is five miles long and 3 miles wide and has 23 miles of water frontage. Not too long ago, Daniel Island was farm and marsh land. Today, it thrives with a broad collection of carefully planned residential communities, restaurants, shops, stores, businesses, and schools.
Many of Charleston's larger company headquarters are located on Daniel Island. Blackbaud, a leading developer of computer software for charities, SunCom wireless, and CSS, a software consulting firm all have decided have large offices here. BenefitFocus has recently announced their plans to open spacious new offices on the Island as well. As such, many of Daniel Island's residents are able to reside, shop, play, and work all without leaving the area. To add to its appeal, Daniel Island is centrally located northwest of Charleston, off I-526 and is just a short distance from the old city, North Charleston, East Cooper and West Ashley.
There are currently six residential areas on Daniel Island, listed alphabetically below.
Located on the eastern edge of Daniel Island, Barfield Park is a marsh- and water-oriented neighborhood featuring a natural-style park that overlooks the Wando River. Construction of the neighborhood's first homes, built by national builders David Weekley Homes and John Wieland Homes, began in the spring of 2000. In addition to the neighborhood park, which offers marsh and water views from winding paths and a covered picnic pavilion, neighborhood residents enjoy close proximity to downtown Daniel Island.
Homes in Center Park were built beginning in '00. A two-acre landscaped park with walking paths and two innovative play structures is the centerpiece of this neighborhood. Surrounding the park are Classical-style brick townhomes built by Ceystar Homes which feature iron balconies, private walled gardens and a high level of detail. The first single family homes in this neighborhood are being built by national builders D.R. Horton and Palmetto Traditional Homes.
Codner's Ferry Park
The final homes in Codner's Ferry Park, the Island's first neighborhood, are now nearing completion.
With a one-acre park at its center, this neighborhood also features close proximity to a community boat
ramp, the pool at Scott Park, and Bellinger Island, Daniel Island's nature preserve. Homes are built
by regional custom builders and feature marshfront (some on deepwater with private docks), park or
interior views. Codner's Ferry Park homes are priced from the mid $300s to the $600s.
This water- and marsh-oriented neighborhood features elevated homes to take advantage of magnificent views. Homes in this neighborhood currently are being built by national builders D.R. Horton and David Weekley Homes and Charleston-based custom builder Passailaigue Home Builders.
Daniel Island Park
Located on the northern end of the Island, Daniel Island Park is inspired by the great old suburban neighborhoods of the 1920s and 30s and the work of landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. This special neighborhood enjoys the Daniel Island Club's 18-hole Tom Fazio-designed private golf course as its centerpiece. Homeowners in this neighborhood automatically become Park Club members, allowing them access to the swim, tennis and social facilities of the private-membership Daniel Island Club. They also have the option to become golf members of the Club. Homes in Daniel Island Park are built by members of a team of independent custom builders and require the use of both an architect and landscape architect registered in the state of South Carolina.
Etiwan Park was the second neighborhood to be established on the Island. The focal point of this neighborhood is a seven-acre park owned by the City of Charleston that features basketball and volleyball courts and a picnic pavilion. Residents of this neighborhood also enjoy close proximity to Bishop England High School, the pool at Scott Park and downtown Daniel Island. Etiwan Park homes are built by national builders D.R. Horton and David Weekley Homes.
Downtown Charleston Real Estate:
Price range: $350,000-$7M
Downtown Charleston is a peninsula extending out into Charleston Harbor and separated on either side by the Ashley and Cooper Rivers. It is steeped in tradition, culture, and charm and the homes that grace downtown are reflective of all of these characteristics. With traditional, Southern style architecture, expansive porches, shutters, and gas lamps that burn consistently, these gorgeous homes are reminiscent of old Charleston and its rich history.
Unlike most of Charleston, downtown is made up of different geographically distinct areas rather than formal subdivisions and neighborhoods. Each area has its own distinct flavor and price point. Some of the most noteworthy from the standpoint of history and beauty are The French Quarter and South of Broad. The French Quarter is in the heart of downtown and is distinguishable by its French roots and architecture. South of Broad is the most exclusive part of downtown and perhaps the entire state. Located within the South of Broad vicinity lie the Battery and Rainbow Row. The Battery refers to the waterfront properties in and around Battery Park. Rainbow Row is a famous section of colorful row houses running along the Cooper side of the peninsula.
Because there are so many areas, we cannot mention them all here but are happy to discuss further so if you have questions or would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Folly Beach Real Estate:
Single family homes: $400,000-$2.6M
Folly Beach is a laid back beach community, fondly referred to as the Edge of America. Hippies, artists, students, surfers, and businessmen alike call Folly Beach home and it attracts thousands of visitors each year who are drawn to the relaxed, casual lifestyle that Folly has to offer.
Prices have shot up over the past couple of years and growth is abundant. The majority of the homes on Folly are still beach bungalows but the newest trend is that people are selling them for attractive profits and beautiful new, luxury beach homes are going up rapidly.
Center Street is the main street that runs through town and it features lots of casual, relaxed restaurants, bars, and shops such as the Crab Shack, 11 Center Street, 1 Center, Planet Follywood, The Lost Dog, Snapper Jack's and the infamous Sand Dollar Social Club.
Although prices have increased rapidly on Folly, it is still a wonderful place to buy for investment, a primary residence, vacation home or a combination thereof. The growth is not expected to slow down any time soon so it's a great time to get into the market here.
Folly Beach does not have many subdivisions (although there are a few condominium/town home developments) but instead homes are referred to as "first row", "second row", etc. and the properties are, naturally, priced according to proximity to the beach. Therefore, we've offered some basic information here and, if you are interested in finding out more, please don't hesitate to contact us. One of our team members is an expert on Folly Beach and does most of his work there so he's a great person to talk to about the opportunities on Folly.
