Offering decidedly upscale homes in one of James Island’s few gated communities, Parrot Creek sits beside its sister community of Parrot Bluff off Fort Johnson Road. Single-family homes here were built by a variety of builders form the late 1980s well into the 90s.
Largely traditional designs with brick, wood, or Hardiplank siding, homes range from 2,000 square feet to 4,700 square feet in size and feature 3-5 bedrooms. Home prices range from the $300s to more than $1 million for homes with deep-water access and their own private docks. A small neighborhood with just four streets, this outstanding subdivision is only 10 minutes form downtown Charleston with no stoplights along the way.
And Folly Beach is less than 10 miles distant. While there are no amenities in the neighborhood itself, memberships are available at the nearby Fort Johnson Estates Civic Club’s swimming pool as well as its clubhouse and tennis courts. The neighborhood is also within walking distance of county tennis courts and a playground.
Neighborhood children go to Stiles Elementary, Fort Johnson Middle and James Island Charter High schools, all highly rated and all located nearby. For boaters, the nearby James Island Yacht Club provides space for boats on trailers as well as a boat ramp. Several public boat ramps are located nearby as well.
