West Ashley SC real estate | Homes for sale in West Ashley - Charleston SC

Charleston’s original colonists picked West Ashley’s riverfront bluffs as their first settlement in 1670, and the area has been a prized location ever since. During the colonial period, grand plantations sprang up along scenic river banks, and throughout the 19th century, ferries brought picnickers to the waterfront glade of shady oaks and pines known as The Pleasure Grove.
 
Today, such idyllic neighborhoods as The Crescent, Wappoo Heights, Moreland, Windemere, and Wespanee Plantation still beckon with comfort, beauty, and enviable location that enchanted so many generations. Featuring upscale homes with spacious yards and lush gardens along quiet, family-friendly streets, West Ashley’s most alluring neighborhoods are fewer than five minutes from downtown Charleston. Flanked by riverfront and intracoastal waterway, West Ashley provides a desirable mixture of scenic and recreational enjoyment – an escape into nature and seclusion only a stone’s throw from fine restaurants, fine arts and shopping  
 
West Ashley is home to one of the most prestigious private K-12 preparatory academies in the South, Porter-Gaud School, which is highly regarded for its excellent academics and athletic programs, as well as its outstanding legacy of college placements at such schools as Princeton, Duke, The Naval Academy, Georgia Tech, and University of Virginia. Just across the river from the nationally-acclaimed Medical “University of South Carolina and hospital complex, West Ashley also offers ideal residential potential for those in the medical profession. 
 
This original Charleston landmark is incorporated as part of the city today, and as always, just across the banks of the Ashley River was a perfect place to be.
