The small Westfield Place neighborhood off Secessionville Road on James Island offers new homes built in the distinctive Charleston style with large front porches, side porches, stylish shutters and classic colors.
Five minutes from the beach and 10 minutes from downtown Charleston, the community offers spacious homes with 2,400 to 2,800 square feet priced from the high $300s to the mid-$400s. According to maps, Secessionville Rd is just outside the corporate limits of James Island and is listed as Charleston, but it is right on an invisible border.
Homes on the neighborhood's two streets were built in 2006 and 2007 on relatively small lot sizes. Most homes have 2 stories with 4 bedrooms and Hardiplank siding. Not only beautiful, this cement siding captures the beauty of wood, can be painted and resists swelling, rot and termites.
With a prime location just a few miles from Charleston proper, Westfield is not only close to the beach and downtown but schools, services and shopping. Residents can bike to Gold's Gym, a grocery store, restaurants, shops and lounges. They can even bike to the beach if they want with a bike lane along Folly Road.
Also just a few miles away, James Island County Park offers 648 acres for biking, hiking and kayaking as well as the Splash Zone Waterpark, a dog park, playgrounds and much more. Neighborhood children attend the highly rated James Island School District schools.
