For those who don’t know, blue crabs are closely related to shrimp and lobsters with an average life span of one to four years and an average weight of one to two pounds. Blue crabs are found in Atlantic coastal waters from Nova Scotia to Florida, around the entirety of the Gulf of Mexico and as far south as Uruguay. So what, you might ask, does the life cycle of a blue crab have to do with the master planned community of Belle Hall Plantation?
Well, among the many wildlife residents of the Plantation, perhaps none is more sensitive to changes to its habitat than the blue crab. The healthy population of blue crabs at Belle Hall speaks volumes about the environmental sensitivity with which it was developed.
With about 1,000 homes in seven unique neighborhoods, the Plantation offers a variety of home styles and sizes for single young professionals, retirees, and families. Homes begin in the mid-$200s and rise to more than $1.5 million with some vacant lots also available. For residents who don’t necessarily want to know more about blue crabs but just enjoy eating them, the community offers its own crabbing dock.
Other amenities include an outstanding clubhouse with two swimming pools, two tennis courts, volleyball and basketball courts, and a network of trails for biking and hiking. Right next door to the Plantation is the Mount Pleasant Jones Recreation Center, which also has a pool, playground, basketball court and supervised youth activities and programs.
Within walking distance of grocery stores, retail stores, restaurants and professional services at Belle Hall Center, the community is also a few blocks from of one of the area’s top elementary schools, Belle Hall elementary. Another of Mount Pleasant’s best shopping centers, Town Centre, is also just a short drive away. And an ideal location just off I-526 means the Plantation is convenient to just about anywhere in the greater Charleston area, including some of the state’s best beaches at the Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island.
This is a must-see community that offers the best of everything. Let us show you around!
