The Elms of Charleston is located off Highway 78 in N Charleston. It is next to Wannamaker Park and a few very short minutes to Charleston Southern University, Trident Hospital and I-26. It is an age 55 and over community and the homes are OWNED individually by the residents. The Elms is a completed community, with building having been completed between the late 1980s and 2016. All homes have the master bedroom on the first floor and many are located on cul de sac streets, insuring low traffic. Homes available now are purchased through local Realtors as re-sales.
When I drove through The Elms today, I noticed several people taking a leisurely stroll or walking their dogs (on a leash, of course) The Elms prides itself on providing an active and low maintenance lifestyle to it's residents.
Located in the Northern part of Charleston County, the community is surrounded by a wide variety of dining, shopping and entertainment. With I-26 close by, it is a short drive to the culture of the City of Charleston and the enjoyment of the beaches on The Isle of Palms, Sullivans Island, Folly Beach, Kiawah and Seabrook Island. Golfers will be very happy here with numerous championship courses in the area. Wannamaker Park is next door and the Francis Marion National Forest is nearby.
