Daniel’s Orchard

And the square footage isn’t too shabby either, ranging from 2,200 to 3,200 sq. ft.

The community itself features a beautifully manicured park, a gazebo, a fire pit, and ponds, so everywhere you turn you’ll have gorgeous scenery. This South Carolina Coastal Community is walkable too, within walking distance of a variety of downtown Summerville shops, restaurants, and parks.

Summerville is a town full of history, with at least 700 homes and buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. While you’re in town, make sure you take the self-guided tour of the historic homes, and dig a little into Summerville’s history.

Festivals and fairs are no stranger to this quaint town, Sculptures of the South, Flowertown Festival, Red, White & Blue on the Green, and Riverfest being only a few that take place throughout the year, and well worth checking out.

If you crave the excitement of a bigger city, downtown Charleston, SC, is only twenty-five miles away, where you can explore everything from battleships to history to the culinary arts. For beach lovers, relaxing on the sand isn’t hard to achieve. Beautiful beaches are just thirty miles away, ready and waiting for when you desire the coastal atmosphere.

Summerville also has a claim to fame: it’s the birthplace of Sweet Tea. So if you’re looking for a little southern charm, history, and being near the beach, Daniel’s Orchard could be the perfect place to call home. Just imagine sitting on your front porch, in a rocking chair, sipping that sweet, sweet tea…

Porchers Preserve puts you just ten miles from the seashore, so spending the day with your toes in the sand is never out of the question. For the golf lover, six area golf courses are just outside your front door. So is the Market at Oakland, which you can easily walk or bike to.

If you feel like exploring, Charles Pinckney National Historic Site is a good place to visit. And when the grandkids come to visit in the summer, Splash Island Water Park is the perfect place to cool off.
