I have been looking around threads/postings in this area several weeks, and I could not find Active-adult community/55+ community information except Del Webb Charleston. Is there anyone who are living this type of community in Summerville/or surrounding area now? If there is, please post any thoughts/suggestions. We live in suburb of NY, are currently looking for nice place to retire. We plan to visit the area in the end of June. We have researched area, and there were some communities besides Del Webb. Is there any retiree there? What is it like to retire there? Any information will be appreciated!!

Dunes West is no place close to Summerville...and it not a retirement community. Not sure that will help the OP much...but it may, you never know.

There is one on Miles Road in Ladson, it is a 55+ community my mother looked into it once before when she was looking to relocate after retiring, they ended up in the Tn Mountains...

Like I said, you never know.

Being 45 minutes down the road isn't very close to me...but that's only to me. Also, when someone specifically asks about Summerville I figure they are interested in a particular price range (which they will likely not find in Dunes West).

DW may be perfect for them and we just don't know it.

Ok, folks, Mount Pleasant is most likely out of our price range. (our max will be around $300,000)

We saw two other communities on internet
-Marrington at Cobblestone
-The Pines at Gahagan

any info about these?

The Ponds is building an over 55 section also. I haven't seen it in person, but I know they have the models on line. I believe it is called Carillion.

Del Webb is on the far east side of Summerville, the Ponds is on the far west edge of town.

I live in the Pines at Gahagan, it is in the middle of the other two and in town, walking distance to the old villiage of Summerville and less than three miles to the interstate, and Azealea Mall. We are small, only slightly over 100 homes when we are built out...I think there are around 40 homes completed at this time. They can't bulid them fast enough. The first big wave of baby boomers has hit retirement age!

The homes here are well within your price range, as are the Del Webb homes. The Ponds homes, from what I can see, are higher per sq. foot.

If you would like more info. feel free to direct message me.
