ISLE OF PALMS
PRICE PER SQUARE FT
DAYS ON MARKET
AN ISLAND PARADISE
This once sleepy barrier island has become a hotspot due to its proximity to Charleston, beautiful white sand beach, and incredible quality of life. It is a perfect combination of Southern gentille and relaxed island living. It is a very family friendly beach community and kids cruise by on bicycles and skateboards, as neighbors walking dogs or putting around in golf carts wave hello. Isle of Palms has great parks and public facilities, and shares the same excellent school system as Sullivans Island. In fact, as Sullivans Island real estate has become ultra-affluent, and Charleston has continued to grow, this little sliver of tropical paradise has found itself increasingly in the spotlight.
"Every day when I leave the office and drive over the bridge, I feel like I am coming home to a vacation. We have the friendliest neighbors, we golf cart everywhere, we have traded in the city and embraced the island life!"
