Visiting next month finally. So more questions along the same lines as others. Looking for family friendly neighborhood where kids are playing on the street. Really interested in a close community feel. We will rent first but thinking of a house budget around $450k. Would like a community pool and gym facilities close by since never had that before. Not really interested in cookie cutter houses is that a deal breaker? From what I'm reading James Island and West Ashley? Then maybe Mount Pleasant but this area more suburban, is that right? Are any of these areas walkable to small owner operated shops, restaurants, coffee shops, and close to parks where my family can bike to? Thanks and see you soon Charleston.

Old Village for 450K --mmm that's tough to find. Scotts Creek -- can't buy a house for 450 K. But there are lots of other communties. -- Here's the site I lived on 7 years ago when my husband got his job here. Youcan set your parameters -- check the location.

That's a good site. Thank you. To be honest I am not looking for a fancy area. I nice house sure but I am more interested in being around people with decent down to earth values who like to have fun and a street where my kids have friends on the same block.

The new sign says "From the $500s"...

...and it's not really walkable to anything unless you take a hike down Rifle Range.

When I think walkable, I think sustainable, then. Old Village, you can't sustain yourself there without fresh produce or meat. Is there some secret there? :-) It would be best to look for a nice community off 17.
