Situated only ten miles from historic downtown Charleston, Johns Island is a beautiful island that is only second in size to Long Island in New York, among sea coastal islands on the eastern seaboard. The town offers a multitude of some of the most exquisite homes, proximity to numerous places and wonderful amenities. With two new bridges, a four-lane superhighway to Kiawah Island and an executive airport, this island is a perfect suburban address to call home. Johns Island history dates back to the days since it was a coastal farming town. The town boasts the Angel Oak, which is estimated to be approximately 1400 years old. Surrounded by waterways and rivers and tied together by tidal creeks, the real estate offers a wide assortment of waterfront homes, and new homes overlooking Wadmalaw Sound, Stono and Kiawah River.
Johns Island has numerous local farms still in operation that produce cucumbers, tomatoes, melons, lettuce, and winter greens that are sold to the local restaurants and roadside markets. Local schools that resident children attend include Charleston Collegiate School, Mount Zion Elementary School, Haut Gap Middle School, Angel Oak Elementary School, and St. Johns High School.
