Old Village

Mount Pleasant’s most historic neighborhood, once only accessed via ferry boat, The Old Village is a special place that was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 in order to preserve its architectural styles and encourage harmonious growth and development in the area.

The Old Village sits right on the Charleston harbor, with spectacular views of downtown Charleston and the Ravenel Bridge. Nestled quietly amid grand live oaks with a ‘Normal Rockwell-esque’ setting, it’s only a hop, skip and jump to beautiful Sullivan’s Island and Shem Creek.

The homes in The Old Village are sought after by locals and new arrivals alike, while many are passed down from generation to generation. You’ll find both historic homes and newer construction with prices ranging from $500,000 for a small home to $5,000,000 for a historic home with a deepwater dock on Charleston Harbor.
