Rivertowne’s roots took place in the mid-1990s. The subdivision which is located directly across from Dunes West is located off of Highway 41. This nationally acclaimed 516-acre golf course and residential community was the first Arnold Palmer signature course in the Charleston region. The course has spectacular views of Horlbeck Creek and the Wando River and so do several of the homes.
Homes in this subdivision have views of natural lakes, wetlands, golf course, woodlands and/or marsh. Some premier properties have direct access to the Wando River. There are several subsections within Rivertowne including:

This section of RIVERTOWNE COUNTRY CLUB is MARSH ISLE and it’s a very small subsection RIVERTOWNE COUNTRY CLUB that has very high end…..almost mansions. All custom built here and in this section of RIVERTOWNE…..MARSH ISLE. So these price points go anywhere from high $500K’s all the way into the million dollar range. The homes on the left here sit not only on the golf course, but they have distant views of the Wando River as well.
This little subsection of RIVERTOWNE COUNTRY CLUB is called PINE ISLE. These are about 3500-4000 square feet and this little subsection literally consists of one street and a cul-de-sac. These are beautiful homes that range from $400K to $500K in price point. And most of them sit along the golf course.
So, RIVERTOWNE was actually begun in the mid 90’s over all, and it consists of a 600 acre residential development that has all different kinds of home styles. They’re all single family homes. There are no condos in this community and RIVERTOWNE ON THE WANDO is situated along the Wando River, and there’s also some home sites that sit along Horlbeck Creek and/or the marsh area. These are the first homes that were built in RIVERTOWNE in the late 90’s and they have a nice Cape Cod feel to them. The price ranges in this section of RIVERTOWNE ON THE WANDO, anywhere from $400K all the way to $4.5 million. There are some custom homes in the back of this neighborhood that really are very nice. So, once we get into RIVERTOWNE ON THE WANDO, it does set itself apart from the other sections of RIVERTOWNE in the Country Club, in that it does not have a particular section. There is no subsection. It’s all RIVERTOWNE ON THE WANDO. And there are custom homes, as I mentioned, but there are track homes, as well; high end track homes built by Crescent, which is a local builder here in Charleston and also, D R Horton. These homes that were driving past right now, are D R Horton Homes, and they all have a different feel. Some have a high elevated crawl space construction and some are elevated, drive under construction homes. All are made out of hardi-plank siding. And the sizes consist of anywhere from 2000 square feet all the way up to 4000 square feet in this little area of RIVERTOWNE ON THE WANDO. So, also as you can see, RIVERTOWNE ON THE WANDO, as I mentioned, there’s a shared dock for the community. But also, situated along the Wando where the dock ends, there are custom build mansions that range any where from 3500 square feet, all the way up to 8000 square feet. Some of these home sites were bought and purchased by home owners rather than developers and they contracted and built their own homes in this development. What’s nice about these, is they’re not cookie cutter. They all have a different feel and look. Some have Spanish tile roofs, some have more of the low country feel, so, it’s a really nice community, because it’s very eclectic in this section of RIVERTOWNE ON THE WANDO.
So, we’re now in this section of RIVERTOWNE COUNTRY CLUB and what’s nice about THE RIVERTOWNE COUNTRY CLUB and what separates it from RIVERTOWNE ON THE WANDO, is that it boasts a 516 acre Arnold Palmer Golf Course, actually the first Arnold Palmer Golf Course in the Charleston area. My husband actually plays it all the time and loves it. Partially, it sits along the marsh, some of the course sits along the Wando River. It’s really a beautifully built course here in RIVERTOWNE COUNTRY CLUB. RIVERTOWNE’S amenities are really, really high end, in my opinion. You have a beautiful pool that’s nestled along the marsh that we’ll show you here if you ride around on the side. So, this is open to all residents of RIVERTOWNE COUNTRY CLUB. It’s part of your HOA dues here in this neighborhood. It’s got a beautiful open air pavilion for picnics and parties. Its also got a playground for the kids and a really nice pool. It’s actually nice and quiet today, which is surprising for August. And then, we have the country club itself. The club house has a beautiful antebellum kind of look to it and I’ve eaten there several times for lunch and I will say that the food there is awesome. Even if you’re not a golfer, but you live in the community, it’s really fun to come and have lunch and they do a lot of neighborhood functions there. So, it’s an excellent place to go grab a bite to eat.
So, one of the neat things about RIVERTOWNE is, at least I think it’s kind of neat, there’s a side road that takes you to, it’s almost an attached strip mall that takes you to Harris Teeter, with a Starbucks inside, and it’s got a couple of restaurants, one is actually really good. It’s called O’Brien’s. It’s kind of like an Irish Pub and they have decent hamburgers and things like that. So, here we have O’Brien’s Pub and Grill. It’s a really quick little drive over from RIVERTOWNE, and of course they have a dentist. There’s a cleaners, there’s a liquor store, and then you also have the Harris Teeter with the Starbucks. What I find kind of fascinating and interesting, is that here on this side of the grocery story is specified parking for golf carts and/or hybrid vehicles. I think that’s a nice amenity, although it is public, it’s nice to have it so close to the RIVERTOWNE neighborhood.
