While most of the homes in the Historic District of Summerville date from the early 1900s to the 1950s, there’s also the occasional home from the early 1800s that comes on the market and even rarely a new home. The large selection of brick ranchers from the ’70s and ’80s tend to be some of the district’s more affordable offerings. Homes in the historic district typically range from the $300s to $1 million plus.
Residents enjoy the benefits of being in walking distance to the many shops and restaurants of downtown Summerville and are just 40 minutes away from downtown Charleston as well. Less than an hour away are some of the East Coast’s finest beaches while closer to home are the preserved plantation houses and gardens like Middleton Place and Magnolia Gardens.
Summerville is also home to the state’s largest arts and crafts festival, the three-day Flowertown Festival held each April. Just up the road in Harleyville, the Francis Beidler Forest offers one of the largest preserved forests in South Carolina with more than 16,000 acres of swamp forest, including Bald cypress trees estimated to be one thousand years old. The forest features an Audubon education center where visitors can explore using the center’s 1.75 mile elevated walkway.
