Large spacious homes with expansive marsh views are hallmarks that make Rushland Plantation one of the more popular upscale communities on John’s Island. And while this master planned community sits on 500 acres of prime coastal land overlooking the Stono River, only 123 home sites are planned to ensure the preservation of its marshes and the animals living in them.
The commitment to preserving that habitat means residents can enjoy seemingly endless nature trails along with freshwater lagoons and daily sightings of a variety of wildlife. The neighborhood is still being developed, and the Lowcountry-style homes feature wide front porches. Many homes have double wraparound porches, Hardiplank siding, metal roofs, 10-foot ceilings, custom cabinets and top-of-the-line appliances. A typical floor plan features four bedrooms and 3,000 square feet of living space.
Neighborhood amenities include a community pool, clubhouse, and three community docks in addition to homes with private docks. About 10 miles from downtown Charleston and 15 miles form the beach, the neighborhood is convenient to major retail centers, restaurants and recreational facilities.
The Charleston Municipal Golf Course is just minutes away as is Splash Zone Waterpark, a part of James Island County Park. That park also offers kayaking, miles of nature trails, a dog park, climbing wall and much more.
