James Island SC real estate | Homes for sale on James Island - Charleston SC

With its expanse of tidal creek and marsh front vistas, as well as roadsides lined with ancient live oaks and well-preserved Civil War earthworks, James Island has a feel of rural countryside only minutes from downtown Charleston and artsy Folly Beach. The island name is biblical in origin, and it can be a heavenly experience to enjoy some of its unique home locations.

Exclusive properties border windswept sea island estuaries to the south and magnificent views of Charleston’s skyline to the north. Home to one of America's oldest golf links and most dynamically interactive county parks, a James Island address accentuates the outdoor lure of South Carolina's warm, sunny climate. The Country Club of Charleston moved to the island in the 1920’s, and has wonderful homes nestled between the championship golf course and the Intracoastal Waterway. Down Harbor View Road, the sights are equally spectacular, with exquisite neighborhoods offering grand views of old Charleston just across the Ashley River. From Parrott Creek and neighborhoods along Fort Johnson Road, vistas extend overlooking Morris Island and Cummings Point, where famous Civil War battles were fought and a 1867 Lighthouse still stands majestically at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

In the Secessionville area, properties look out over the Folly River and barrier islands, and winding creeks are filled with fish, crabs, oysters and the opportunity to boat or paddle through nature’s backyard. Around Grimball Road to the South, properties border the beautiful James Island County Park, renowned for its trails and climbing walls and mesmerizing natural areas perfect for family visits.

Along the Stono River and Elliot Cut, waterfront property offers spectacular sunsets over marshes and rivers filled with herons, egrets and ibis, or tucked away beneath giant live oaks decked with trails of Spanish Moss.

Some of the areas best restaurants are James Island locations at J. Paul’s and Mondo’s Delight, and entertain is big-time at The Pour House and the Terrace Theater.

Nearby Porter-Gaud School is one of the most prestigious private academies in the South, boasting National Merit Scholars, as well as outstanding athletics. Among the graduates from Porter-Gaud are comedian Stephen Colbert, business guru Sally Krawcheck, and professional football star Ovie Mughelli.
