If master planned communities had a family tree, a genealogist would likely trace Seaside Farms ancestry back to 1945 and housing for returning World War II veterans on the Isle of Palms. That’s where former state senator and successful trial lawyer John Charles “J.C.” Long decided to become a real estate developer. Never one to do things on a small scale, he began by forming The Beach Company and buying all the undeveloped land on the Isle of Palms, intending to build affordable housing for returning veterans. He ended up also being a major force in cultivating the island’s tourist industry, contributing to the development of the Isle of Palms Beach and Racquet Club, known today as Wild Dunes Resort.
In 1988 The Beach Company led the team that purchased all of the undeveloped land and resort amenities on Kiawah Island, the largest real estate transaction in the state’s history. In ensuing years, The Beach Company enjoyed a host of other commercial and residential successes, including Seaside Farms, development of which began in 1996.
One of the more popular neighborhoods Charleston real estate has to offer, this community within the city of Mt Pleasant offers its residents not only exceptional homes but exceptional convenience with more than 350,000 square feet of commercial space for shops, restaurants and professional services. Just off the Isle of Palm connector, the community is just three miles away from that island’s incredible beaches.
Catering to a mixed population of singles, young professionals, retirees and families, the 505-acre development offers several distinct neighborhoods with a variety of single-family homes, condominiums and townhouses. With condos ranging from 700 to 1,200 square feet in size, single-family homes typically range from 1,600 square feet to more than 3,200 square feet. Prices begin in the low to mid-$100s for condominiums to more than $1 million for some single-family detached homes. Worth noting is that Seaside Farms offers its Marais neighborhood for 55-plus retirement-oriented living.
