SUMMERVILLE REAL ESTATE
Located about 50 minutes northwest of Charleston, Summerville is a charming historic community and one of the fastest growing areas of Greater Charleston. Known as the Flower Town, Summerville maintains much of its Victorian character and boasts beautiful botanical displays in addition to its parks, farmers markets, recreational areas, and more.
Old town Summerville is on the National Register of Historic Places and boasts a charming Main Street strip with plenty of shopping and a lovely community theatre. With Lake Moultrie and several Charleston area beaches nearby, residents can enjoy waterfront life without the upkeep of a waterfront home. Instead, Summerville real estate properties include beautiful single-level, condominium, and luxury homes nestled in the pines.
Flower Town in the Pines
Summerville was first inhabited in the late 18th century as planters along the Ashley River sought respite from the summer heat and mosquitoes in this small community. Since the late 19th century, when Summerville’s air quality was determined by the International Congress of Physicians to be restorative for lung diseases and maladies, the area has maintained a strong tourist industry year-round.
