Elms of Charleston

Gated, Wooded 55+ Community, The Elms of Charleston, Has Patio Homes and Garden Homes in a Pretty, Lowcountry Setting

In an area once covered by plantations, North Charleston is just north of Charleston on the mid-South Carolina coast. It sits along two rivers and is the site of the Elms of Charleston, a gated 55+ community with detached patio homes and attached garden homes for sale.


Construction of the Elms began in 1987 and continues today. The original builder was Summerville Homes, but the community is being built out by Ryland Homes. Two hundred fifty homes are here, with another 75 or so planned. Flat and wooded, the community boasts Lowcountry charm and a sense of privacy.

The residences are all single level, and they are not crowded together. Sizes range from approximately 1,400 square feet to nearly 2,000 square feet with two to three bedrooms and two baths. All homes have an attached one or two car garage. Most residences have mature landscaping, a front or back porch, plantation shutters and a pitched roof. Exteriors are vinyl with wood trim. Streets meander so that traffic is minimal, ensuring quiet neighborhoods.


Lawn services, powerwashing of all homes once a year and painting of wood exteriors every five years are covered by the HOA. Prices start in the low-$100,000s and top out in the low-to-mid-$200,000s. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change.

Residents gather at the clubhouse for a variety of activities, including card games, pot lucks, dances and more. Outside of the clubhouses, a swimming pool, tennis courts and walking trails await. A full time activities director makes sure that there is always something to do. Day trips to surrounding cultural amenities and the beach happen on a regular basis.

North Charleston has recently become home to the Boeing Company, which plans to build fueslage parts. The city also has naval presence with Joint Base Charleston here. Just six miles down the road, romantic Charleston beckons with its art galleries, film festivals, museums, historic homes, theater companies, restaurants and festivals.

North Charleston has a hospital, but it is not accredited. Charleston has four hospitals, and all are accredited by the Joint Commission and accept Medicare patients. For military retirees, Charleston has a VA hospital.

The area has a subtropical climate. Summers are hot and humid with temperatures in the 80s and 90s, and winters are mild with temperatures in the 40s, 50s, 60s. On average, the city receives 46 inches of rain per year.
