Until the 1990’s, Daniel Island was 4,000 acres of private farmland and hunting preserve, and although located only a few miles from historic Charleston, was largely untouched. The advantage of the island’s recent development is that all if its neighborhoods, commercial and recreational centers, and roadways were meticulously planned to blend with the natural beauty of the pristine surroundings. Exquisite homes throughout the island have enchanting views of marshes, creeks, rivers and forests that are natural to this coastal sanctuary, as well as a dazzling display of color planned meticulously to enhance roadsides, roundabouts, biking trails, parks and public areas. The pervading theme of Daniel Island is based on compelling neighborhoods, in which people enjoy wonderful spaces both inside and outside their homes. Each neighborhood is called a park, and are blessed with shady live oaks and stunning vistas, as well as delightful public grounds featuring Olympic- size swimming pools, picnic and recreation areas, bike and hiking paths, and boat landings that encourage folks to gather for family-friendly activities. Daniel Island has world-class sport facilities, with two championship golf courses designed by Rees Jones and Tom Fazio, a professional soccer club at Blackbaud Stadium, and a hugely-popular tennis center that hosts the prestigious Family Circle Cup. There is an attractive commercial center in the heart of Daniel Island with shops, boutiques and grocery stores, as well as several notable restaurants such as Queen Anne’s Revenge and Sermet’s Restaurant. Although the atmosphere on the island is one of leisurely escape into nature, and seemingly is far distant from the noise and activity of the everyday world, Daniel Island is technically part of the city of Charleston, and is an easy 20- minute drive into the historic downtown area. The pleasures on Daniel island are many - whether basking at a neighborhood pool while watching herons flutter overhead, snoozing on a breezy veranda listening to rustling hickory leaves, enjoying a perfect day of golf as white ibis swoop along the fairway, or paddling a gentle tidal creek as a bottlenose dolphin splashes nearby. The addresses can be very exclusive or very affordably-priced, ranging from grand homes in Daniel Island Country Club Park with an optional golf membership, to park and riverfront condominiums. Daniel Island was planned with enjoyment in mind, and few who visit this unique natural gem will not be tempted to stay.
