A smaller subdivision that will appeal to homebuyers who don’t think bigger large-scale planned developments are better, Providence Commons is a small close-knit community of just six streets. Located off Glen McConnell Parkway, the neighborhood offers very convenient access to the Mark Clark Expressway for connections to North Charleston, Mt. Pleasant and points beyond. Downtown Charleston is just 20 minutes away, while the beaches of Folly Beach, Sullivan’s Island and the Isle of Palms are all about a half-hour’s drive.
Best of all, the neighborhood offers newer homes than those found in some West Ashley areas. Providence Commons features one and two-story traditional and ranch homes built in the early 2000's as well as a good selection of homes built in the 90s. This well-established neighborhood is convenient to schools, shopping, restaurants, and more. A major regional hospital is just minutes away.
Nearby attractions include the unique Charlestowne Landing State Historic Site marking the site where the city was first founded in 1670, later moving to the peninsula it now occupies. Visitors can board a replica 17th century merchant ship, view bears, otters, bison and other animals at the natural habit zoo, and enjoy more than 80 acres of well-kept gardens.
