In the Neighborhood

The community is on James Island, a laid-back beach community just minutes from downtown Charleston and Folly Beach. You’ll find plenty of shopping, dining, and services along Folly Road. The massive Folley Beach fishing pier is a local favorite, with surf shops, restaurants, and bars for you to enjoy. If you’re a runner – or if you just enjoy a walk with a harbor view – you can head over to Sunrise Park or James Island County Park. Commuting to major employers like Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), College of Charleston, and Roper Hospital takes only about 10 minutes.
