Candlewood subdivision has a walking trail and small park.
All right, ya’ll, so we’re off Whipple Road, on to Wakendaw Blvd., heading into CANDLEWOOD. And CANDLEWOOD is a subdivision that sits right next to the Mt. Pleasant Tennis Courts, soccer field and play park, so you don’t have amenities back here, but you do have the ability, as you’ll see in a minute, to have your boat sit in the yard. It’s not an overly hard reaching home owner’s association, so you’re able to do things back here that you probably you wouldn’t be able to do in other neighborhoods. 1976, I think, was the first house built back here and some were finished in the early 2000’s. Square footage range, approximately from 1200 to 2200 square feet. And this is about a 10 minute drive to downtown Charleston and you’re about the same distance to the beach on Isle of Palms. You can get to Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s in about 10 minutes, so this is a good neighborhood to consider if you want to be close to those things. One thing, too, to keep in mind about CANDLEWOOD, is its proximity to I-526. The overpass is right here and most of these homes will not be affected by that road noise because there’s a little bit of a buffer between the houses and the road, but it’s something you definitely want to keep in mind if you’re looking in CANDLEWOOD. So at the very back of CANDLEWOOD, is Trident Academy, and Trident Academy is a school that’s been in Mt. Pleasant for quite a while…I think since the early 1970’s. And it’s a school that helps kids with special needs. A lot of kids with a range of autistic issues go to school here and it’s very highly thought of. I think if you do some research and have a kid with special needs, Trident Academy would be a good place to consider. Again, CANDLEWOOD, the neighborhood which is tied into this, is close to everything and they’ve got a lot of recreational space here as well.
