In case you missed it, we’ve been highlighting what Trulia calls “Best-Kept Secret” neighborhoods in the Charleston metro area. These are neighborhoods that do not typically get a lot of press but are favorites among the locals. These charming neighborhoods are just as attractive as so-called Name-Brand neighborhoods (such as Beverly Hills), but they are just a bit more down stated.
The first neighborhood in Mt. Pleasant that fits the bill of a Best-Kept Secret neighborhood is the Old Village. This waterfront neighborhood is unbelievably close to the Arthur Ravenel Bridge that provides access to downtown Charleston and Interstate 26.
The quaint, narrow neighborhood roads are lined with massive oak trees and gorgeous historic homes. And some of the best seafood in the entire Charleston area is within walking distance of the Old Village neighborhood. The beaches of Sullivan’s Island and the Isle of Palms are also just minutes away. The neighborhood has plenty of its own parks and even a recreation center within its boundaries.
The eclectic mix of exquisite homes in the Old Village neighborhood dates back as early as the mid-1700s, and real estate ranges in price from $500,000 to $3 million. The Old Village’s history, pristine homes, proximity to beaches and downtown Charleston, and its amenities truly make it one of the Charleston area’s best-kept secrets!
