Charleston is known for historic beauty and centuries old architecture, but we are excited to introduce Charleston’s newest condominium development right in the heart of the city. Old world charm meets modern luxury with this impressive project.
Only two flats remain in Historic Charleston’s new distinctive address, Harleston Gates. These boutique residences showcase the very best of elegant contemporary living in a classically inspired framework. Flats have private balconies and luxury appointments. Construction is underway and moving along quickly.
An exclusive partnership with Wentworth Mansion offers owners the option for concierge access, preferred reservations at Circa 1886, special inn, spa and restaurant pricing, in-home room service, housekeeping services, and even provisioning services. Harleston Gates also offers a gated entry with covered garage parking; two spaces per residence, electric vehicle charging stations, bicycle storage, a dog-washing station, and their very own doorman.
Created by the Lowcountry’s finest luxury development company, Bennett-Hofford Construction, designed by prominent architectural firm, Evans & Schmidt, and featuring renowned landscape architect, Sheila Wertimer, Harleston Gates offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience the essence of Charleston living. Located in Harleston Village, a vibrant and tranquil neighborhood, it is favorably situated a few blocks west of the nationally-acclaimed King Street shopping and restaurant districts.
This walkable community puts an emphasis on neighborly. With a number of Nexton-sponsored events and clubs, there are tons of opportunities for you to meet your fellow neighbors! Nexton is designed to live like a small town with homes, schools, shops, parks, restaurants, and businesses all close enough to walk or bike to anywhere you need to be. Almost half of the community is dedicated to parks, natural open space, and paved paths/trails. The pool at Nexton’s Brighton Park Village is much more than just a 25-meter competition pool! There is also an interactive splash pad for young kids, a huge deck with shady areas, a covered pavilion, and green space that can accommodate a volleyball game, a family picnic or just spending time with a good book. The Swim Club is designed for year-round fun, complete with a cozy fire-pit for chilly evenings. The highly praised Nexton Elementary opened back in 2015 and is the area’s only Common Sense Digital Leadership School. Walking your kids to school has never been easier!
The Nexton community is much more than just homes. Its is South Carolina’s first gigabit community providing the fastest, highest-capacity broadband internet connections. Nexton is also well on its way to becoming the region’s third major job center in its town center. The 17-acre site will feature 140,000 square-feet full of shops, restaurants, and services all within a walking/biking distance and centered around the town lake. Hall’s Chophouse, Taco Boy, and Fuji Sushi are just a few local favorites that will be calling Nexton Square home. A Harris Teeter will soon be in the center of the retail district. For beers and brews, there already is Starbucks and Carolina Ale House for you to enjoy.
Nexton is located right in the heart of the lowcountry in Summerville, SC. It is conveniently positioned at the crossroads of I-26 and 17A and less than 30 miles from Historic Downtown Charleston. Enjoy the small town charm of Hutchinson Square in Downtown Summerville where a number of family-friendly festivals are hosted each year. You will find that everything need is just minutes away, including a variety of boutique shops and vintage stores.
You can find residences ranging from apartments to single-family homes. All are exclusively designed for Nexton, starting in the mid $200,000 and go up to the low $600,000’s. Builders for the community understand that an authentic lowcountry home isn’t a historic replica, but rather a home carefully designed for a modern lifestyle while maintaining southern charm. All of the homes meet a high standard of design and craftsmanship and are setting a new bar for the entire region. Currently, the homes are being completed by three developers: Saussy Burbank, Pulte, and Del Webb.

With the surplus of new buyers to the Charleston area, new developments are being built in the surrounding areas. To the west of James Island is Johns Island, the largest island in SC. It is separated from the mainland by the tidal Stono River, which forms part of the Intracoastal Waterway. Originally a farming community, the island’s history dates back centuries as the site of several prominent plantations, producing much of the area’s rice, indigo, and cotton exports. Farming still exists today, and with the rise in popularity of local fruits, meats, and vegetables the island has experienced a rebirth in this historic function.
On Johns Island, you can enjoy a brand new home, while embracing the rural lifestyle that includes appreciation of both history and nature. With its close proximity to downtown Charleston, airport, Folly Beach, and Kiawah Island, this is a PRIME location with Lowcountry charm, open concepts, green space, and eco-friendly features. Get more BANG for your buck!
Drop by or contact our Kiawah / Seabrook Office, which also serves Johns Island, to speak with one of our professional, experienced Johns Island real estate agents, who can offer an insider’s view of living, working, and playing in the Lowcountry.
The concept was unveiled Thuesday and calls for tearing down a majority of the aging buildings on the property and opening up about 50 acres of waterfront land for public use and redevelopment. A consultant describes the current look as “making a garden and putting all this junk in front of it.” The plan also would transplant BMW’s local port operations and shift cruise ship passengers from the terminal near the end of Market Street to an existing building at the pier’s north end. The firm hired by the State Ports Authority as a consultant called the redevelopment proposal “one of the half-dozen most important urban projects in the U.S.”
A redrawn map of the area shows a series of rundown port buildings which would be removed to create space for new parks, streets and future real estate ventures.
Officials stressed everything revealed was nothing more than conceptual and a master plan could take decades to execute adn the details are likely to change over time. The type of future development , be it residential or commercial, will be driven by market demands.
Officials will deliver an update at another coummunity meeting later this spring. But the plans are exciting and just more reasons why the future in Charleston real estate is so bright (we gotta wear shades!).
