Hello All~I have been searching this site for sometime now. I'm finding it very helpful but I have a question. My husband and I are considering a move to Summerville within the next year. We are a couple in our 30's with two preschool aged girls. I already understand we want to be within the Dorchester 2 school district.....we were in for a visit in May and looked around with our realtor. We looked at a few homes in different Subdivisions.....Westcott Plantation....Bridges of Summerville....Southern Magnolias...Plum Creek. Wescott Plantation and the Bridges Of Summerville were my favorite. We are looking to spend around 200,000. Any advice on these areas or maybe others we should look into? Any advice would be appreciated~! Thanks

They are all nice. I think property values in all of them will remain pretty even. I like Plum Creek and Southern Magnolia because they are located in a quieter country setting as opposed to Wescott and the Bridges of Summerville which are located in busier areas of town. The Knightsville area is seeing some dramatic changes and I think it will become a more desireable area to live over time. It all comes down to what is more appealing and comfortable to you though. They are all good choices and have good schools.

P.S. Other neighborhoods you might want to check out are White Gables, Arbor Walk and Legend Oaks.

I am thinking about putting my Southern Magnolia house up for sale? Any reason why you didn't like this neighborhood? Thanks for any help you can offer.

I've had several friends who lived in Bridges and said that it seemed "shady" sometimes. I don't know what they based that on, and they've since moved out.

Wescott is getting another new elementary school for part of it's development (I'm assuming, since the school is on Patriot Blvd).

We live near Ashley Phosphate and Dorchester roads (near Wescott) and really like this part of town. We're close to Summerville, West Ashley, and not far from downtown Charleston. Publix, Lowe's and Walmart are close by (what else do you need??? lol).

Thanks for the info. Just saw this site for the first time yesterday...didn't even look at it closely.
Anyone want to buy a great house in a quiet neighborhood?
