Nicest Neighborhood North Charleston SC | Best Subdivisions

Who’s to say what the nicest or best of anything as those terms are subjective, but I bring this article to you as my personal feelings as to what I feel is the nicest neighborhood in North Charleston. I have lived in the Charleston area since 1999, and there is no shortage of really nice communities here, but unfortunately the price of real estate can be out of the range of  a lot folks because of it’s proximity to the beaches of Charleston, and historic downtown. Being a Charleston, SC real estate agent it’s my job to help people NOT from the area find the communities they might like to live, and it’s no mystery locally that North Charleston unfortunately has a stigma of being the “not so good” side of our beautiful town. If you aren’t from the area as many if you’ve moved here to work for such corporations like Boeing, Bosch, Coosawand Volvo just to name a few and have heard bad things about North Charleston let me first start by saying that North Charleston is a great area with many great neighborhoods, but one that I really like is Coosaw Creek. As a Realtor I will gladly help you, and show you homes throughout all of North Charleston, but I simply wrote this article as a to feature this particular gated community. So look out for other articles about other communities in the Low-country. To see schools in this area click HERE.


So for those who have to or want to live in North Charleston I am writing this post to share with you my personal favorite neighborhood in North Charleston. Let me explain why I call Coosaw Creek the nicest neighborhood in North Charleston. Coosaw Creek is a gated community located approximately 30 mins drive from downtown and about 40-45 mins drive to the beaches of Charleston, SC. Let me start by pointing out the features I love about this neighborhood:

– All the homes are on large well landscaped lots (which is hard to find in all of Charleston),
– Large mature trees
– Custom-built homes [Many of those homes are brick] – also which is hard to find afford-ably in Charleston.
– Gated

The best part of Coosaw Creek neighborhood is the country club. It features one of the nicest 18 hole golf courses in Charleston with a driving range, well manicured fairways, and greens, great course layout and upscale club house for dining, entertaining, and special events. The golf course has many ponds with many local species of fresh water fish such as large mouth bass, bluegill, and shell crackers to which children can be seen fishing. Local wild life can be seen all over the course as well such as herons, egrets, ibis, turtles and the occasional alligator. The Coosaw Creek community also has multiple hard court tennis facilities ready for the most accomplished players. So if you are relocating to our beautiful town we call Charleston and the north area is where you might be considering then give Coosaw Creek a look, because I think you too will like it as much as I do. If you’d like to see homes in Coosaw Creek search homes listings below and I’d be glad to show them to you. If you’d like to see other homes in other communities in North Charleston, SC see below. If the country club kind of neighborhood isn’t for you my other favorites I’d consider are: Eagle LandingThe Refuge at Whitehall , Cedar Grove, Ashborough East, Mateeba Estates & Indigo Fields .
