Often referred to as East Cooper because of its western Cooper River border, the town of Mount Pleasant is home to approximately 85,000 residents and offers loads of shopping, dining, and recreational activities. This rapidly growing area of Charleston is convenient to both downtown Charleston – connected by the Arthur Ravenel Bridge – and several beaches. Interstate 526 provides swift access to the airport and other areas of Charleston. Mt. Pleasant residents also enjoy top-ranked schools, several health clubs, East Cooper & Roper Hospitals, Mount Pleasant Towne Center shopping, and a variety of social and recreational events that are held throughout the year. It is also home to Palmetto Islands County Park, Boone Hall Plantation, Patriot’s Point, and The Old Village.
Mount Pleasant real estate includes single family houses, town homes, condos, and waterfront homes along the Wando River, Cooper River, Shem Creek, and the intercoastal waterway. The neighborhoods of RiverTowne, Dunes West, Snee Farm, and Charleston National offer upscale living and private golf courses. Park West, Belle Hall and sister communities Hamlin Plantation, Brickyard Plantation and Oyster Point have a wide range of homes and town homes to fit a variety of budgets and provide numerous community amenities including tennis courts, aquatic centers, walking trails, clubhouses, fitness centers, and more. Perhaps the most unique is I'on, a neo-traditional community inspired by the classic, coastal, Lowcountry architecture for which Charleston is so famous.
