West Ashley (Rural)
Stretching beyond Charleston's more urban parts to the east, the communities that make up West Ashley's rural parts offer peaceful places to set down roots. For those who dream of an expansive yard shaded by mature trees, homes for sale in West Ashley can certainly deliver. Residents find that life is slower-paced here, outside of the bounds of the city. Still, it's easy enough to get to more populated parts, thanks to the state roads that snake through the landscape.
Living in nature-infused environs has its benefits. The 643-acre Dungannon Plantation Heritage Preserve gives outdoor enthusiasts plenty of space to enjoy hiking, hunting, and birdwatching. Megget County Park and Roxbury Park, both boasting marshy terrain, add to the list of places to explore.
West Ashley's real estate options run the gamut from lovely brick ranches to nearly-new abodes imbued with all the style and charm of the region's architecture.
