In 1965, Cooper Estates lots and homes were offered for sale for the very first time in the Charleston Evening Post. Lots were listed for $5000 and homes were around $30,000. Times have definitely changed since then. Cooper Estates is now an established neighborhood of 312 homes and town homes. It is conveniently located near the foot of the Ravenel Bridge between Coleman and Johnnie Dodds Boulevards. Owners have access to the Cooper Estate boat landing and dock on Shem Creek (for a one time fee and yearly fee). In addition residents may reserve the landing and picnic area for gatherings. Boat enthusiasts will definitely enjoy this subdivision.
