Also known as “Old Windermere” and “South Windermere” The majority of homes in Windemere are one story 1950s ranch homes but you will find some waterfront or marshfront homes which are often larger as well as more expensive. The wide variety of price points makes for this neighborhood fairly popular. Also the location, nearby is the South Windermere shopping area with coffee, upscale grocer, office supplies, yoga studio, and other specialty shops. Once part of a public recreational area known as The Pleasure Grove, Windermere was one of Charleston’s first suburban neighborhoods in the 1930s. Minutes from downtown Charleston and surrounded by creeks, waterways and shady trees, South Windermere tends to attract and keep its residents.
Windermere has kept the look and feel of 1930s-1950s era neighbhorhoods but a number of newer constructions show a harmonious merge of new and old and have added to the variety of homes. Some homes include docs and scenic waterfront views along the Wappoo and Coburg Creeks.
Meet a West Ashley Expert:

Specializes in: Real Estate Investments, Relocation
Working with investors to pinpoint value-add investment deals is one of Tourine Johnstone's favorite things. She attends property auctions, researches on and off-market deals, and negotiates offers for investors. She can also be found working in the real estate market around the Charleston communities, such as Mount Pleasant, West Ashley, Isle of Palms, and Dewees Island.
She was raised in Northern California and raised her own family in Reno, NV. In 2021 she orchestrated a move cross-country, bringing her real estate business to Charleston, SC. The magnetic charm of Downtown Charleston, the allure of coastal living, and the unique character of the different neighboring communities captivated her, sparking a decision to relocate. Her “non-negotiables” when looking at homes included access to excellent schools and sports programs for my children, a community to embrace our family, and living close to amenities.
Living in Charleston is Tourine's absolute favorite. Her business is an opportunity to explore the surrounding neighborhoods and amenities that make living here so unique. Her clients are a unique opportunity to connect and learn about others. Spending time outdoors, cheering on her kids at their soccer games and cheerleading competitions, or enjoying beach time with her family and two dogs consumes her free time. Not to mention, watching the sunsets from the Isle of Palms is truly a gift that nature keeps on giving!
