Summerville Real Estate

Summerville, South Carolina is a quaint town located 25 miles inland from downtown Charleston. Affectionately named “Flowertown in the Pines” because of its abundance of natural flora and pine trees, the town has a simple beauty and lifestyle that is proudly preserved by its residents.

With its lowcountry ambiance and fine recreational amenities, Summerville real estate continues to be an attractive choice for families, young professionals, and retirees. Under the jurisdiction of Dorchester County, homeowners enjoy considerably lower property taxes than their neighbors in Berkeley or Charleston County. Additionally, home prices are more affordable with a reduced price per square footage than areas like Mt. Pleasant or Downtown Charleston.

Though the cost of living is less, the quality of living is not. Summerville is a peaceful and prideful community; its residents reflect the same charm and graciousness commonly associated with southern socialites, and its cultural climate mirrors vibrant downtown Charleston. From hip restaurants and swanky shops to rural farmland and dirt roads, Summerville is the perfect blend of progressive growth and environmental enrichment. Read More

Real estate in Summerville stretches from the bordering town of Lincolnville to the flowing Ashley River near Colonial Dorchester State Park. Home prices range from $150,000 for a three bedroom townhome or ranch-style home to more than $2 million for a riverfront estate. In the historic district, many plantation-style homes reflect the architecture of the 1800s but have been renovated and restored for modern standards. Here, residents enjoy walking to Hutchinson Square; strolling through the seasonal Farmer’s Market; dining at restaurants such as the Eclectic Chef, Five Loaves Cafe, Perfectly Frank’s, Shuckin’ Shack, and Oscar’s; shopping at boutiques like Marigold, Savvy Rose, and Piazza Home; and quenching their thirst at local pubs like O'Lacy's, Icehouse, Montreux Bar and Grill, and Homegrown Brewhouse. Downtown Summerville is also home the oldest pharmacy in South Carolina, Guerin’s Pharmacy on Main Street. This iconic business dates back to 1871 and is well known for its personal service, unique gifts, and root beer floats.

In Summerville, golf enthusiasts enjoy competitive and leisure play at Miler Country Club, Pine Forest, Wescott Plantation, and Legend Oaks. In addition to golf, these active neighborhoods possess swimming pools, tennis courts, fitness facilities, and clubhouses for residents and their guests to enjoy. For families who desire privacy and acreage, Tea Farm and Walnut Farm both feature custom estates in a seemingly rural but surprisingly convenient area. Newer construction homes are available in subdivisions like Cane Bay Plantation, Nexton, Guilford Gates, Simmons Grove, and Carnes Crossing, while established neighborhoods like The Summit, Kings Grant, Ashborough, and Newington showcase traditional style homes surrounded by mature oaks and tall pine trees. Residents of all these communities are privy to the town’s top-rated schools which include Flowertown Elementary, Beech Hill Elementary, Joe Pye Elementary, Rollings Middle School of the Arts, Dubose Middle School, Oakbrook Middle School, Fort Dorchester High School, Ashley Ridge High School, and Summerville High School.

Dating back to 1785, Summerville originated as a private retreat for political leaders, military commanders, and wealthy plantation owners. Though it seems odd today, Charlestonians purchased summer homes in Summerville, then called Pineland Village, to escape the intense heat and humidity during the summer months. After its official incorporation in 1847, Summerville’s legislature enacted a law to prohibit cutting down trees of a particular size, the first law of its kind in the United States. Hence, the official latin motto on the town’s seal reads “Sacra Pinus Esto,” meaning the pine is sacred. The abundance of colorful, blooming azaleas prompted the Chamber of Commerce to adopt the slogan “Flower Town in the Pines” in 1925.

Summerville residents, also known as “Summervillians,” appreciate the small town atmosphere, community cohesiveness, and annual traditions .During the fall, the community rallies to support the local football teams: the Summerville Greenwave, Ashley Ridge High School, and Fort Dorchester High School. Also during this season, the town celebrates its heritage as the birthplace of sweet tea with a fun-filled Sweet Tea Festival. During this festival, residents fellowship with each other, listen to live music, and, of course, sip sweet tea! The annual Summerville Christmas Tree Lighting is held in the town square the first of December and features entertainment for the entire family to enjoy. In the spring, the town comes together to host the popular annual Flower Town Festival. Of course, many theatrical events are presented by the famous Flowertown Players at the historic James Dean Theater. In addition, the community is never short on outdoor recreation with numerous outdoor parks, playgrounds, campgrounds, and town-organized sports. Popular parks include Azalea Park, Gahagan Park, Wassamassaw Park, and Summerville Skate Park. The Summerville YMCA governs recreational sports leagues and activities including soccer, flag football baseball, ballet, and more.

Summerville is home to several major corporations and factories including Volvo, Scout Boats, Fruit of the Loom, and Sportsman Fishing Boats. These businesses provide a plethora of jobs for area residents and generously give back to community charities. Though the town has experienced tremendous residential and commercial growth during the last few decades, it has remarkably not lost its small town charm. Perhaps this is why homebuyers find the area so attractive and special.
