Hi all. We are about to make a commitment to the move to summerville. We found a home in Myers mill. I went there last weekend and choose that area based on visual appeal. It seems more open to me in that area but there are 2 shopping center really close so it is not "in the sticks"

It is up on central just passed orangeberg rd. Kinda near pine wood prep private school.

Anyway, the homes there are cheaper than anywhere else in summerville. Does anyone know about that area in Summerville. I like it but really dont know Anything about it. I dont want to pick the wrong area. Any reason that you may know of why the homes are cheaper? Any thought on that particular northeastern area of summerville?

thanks

That area is called Knightsville. Homes are probably a little cheaper because it is located further out of town and the neighborhood is brand spanking new. They are probably trying to lure buyers out that way. Once people start buying I'm sure the prices will go up, they always do.

Knightsville has changed a lot in just the past year. The Publix shopping center just opened a couple of months ago. A McDonald's is supposed to be built somewhere in the shopping center. There used to be an old rundown strip mall type place across the street on the corner but that was torn down and a new Walgreens is going there. It's a growing area.

Hi Belladee,
We are relocating to summerville, too. I was looking on line for info on Myers Mill, but can't find any. Do you know of websites that have info about that area? We are looking for an affordable family-oriented neighborhood in S'ville.
We don't mind being out of the way. that area sounds like what we are looking for.
We plan on going down the second week of April to check it out. Where are you moving from? We are coming down from Maine. Where we live now it is very small, so I know this move will be a huge change for us. That is what appeals to me about the Knightsville area. It is hard to find stuff online about it, though.
Any help?? thanks.

You both should look in Legend Oaks. It is a wonderful family friendly neighborhood and near Summerville and Charleston. There is a golf course and the houses are very well maintained.......that means a great resale value. And there is a elementary school right across the street! Hope this helps!

scjj, thanks for the info. It is nice to hear from someone who knows the area. I like that it is a little out of the way but only a little. and I did see that new shopping center with the publix. that is all I really need.
Is Knightsville in Summerville?

Adrienne, here is a link to the homes and the community. We drove around all of summerville and choose this area because it was the nicest but also had a nice place to grocery shop. everything is 10 minutes away and downtown summerville, where the nice homes and beautiful landscaping is is right down the street. I am moving from Florida.

ryland homes in myers mill is offering 15000 toward upgrades 3000 toward closing and a free plasma TV in the month of march

belladee-
The Pointe, The Club, Plantation.................all of those are little areas within Legend Oaks. They all flow together, it really depends the amount of money you are willing to spend. But, no matter what, everyone treats everyone the same no matter if you are in the $200K area or the $500K area! It just a nice community!
Hope this helps....let me know if you have any other questions. I am not a realtor, just someone who love the Summerville/Charleston area!

Hi there,

We live in White Gables which is on Central Ave and in the northern part of Summerville and it's not what anyone would call a "cheap" neighborhood. Prices are between 200k-400k, depending on how large a home you want and the prices are increasing with each new construction phase. Next door to us is a smaller subdivision of custom built homes which are very expensive but I don't recall the exact name of it.. One mile to the right, down Orangeburg Rd are the subdivisions Plum Creek and Southern Magnolias (which are already built and established) and 3 newer communities- Reminisce, Brookwood and another custom home community starting at 400k. Brookwood starts at 150k and Reminisce at low 200's. My point is, this isn't a "cheap" part of Summerville, it just isn't as well developed as the lower part of Summerville. Some communities are cheaper, and some are pricier, all depending upon the builder and the homes themselves.

My husband wanted to buy a home in Legend Oaks in fact, and I loved the double porches on one of the homes in White Gables. The wife won and that's why we are here.


If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Legend Oaks is a great area but about 50,000 more than Myers Mill. Myers Mill area is really growing and is a great investment. I just sold a 2600 sq ft, 4 bedrooms new construction home to someone for 214,000! That was a steal! You really can not find that anywhere else in this area.
