Take a step back in time when you enter historic Summerville. This quaint town offers small town charm with the amenities of a modern and progressive city. What would you expect from a city that claims to be “The Birthplace of Sweet Tea”?
The real estate market remains very active in Summerville. There is a good mix of sales from historic homes near downtown Summerville, ranch homes along the main arteries leaving downtown to new construction in neighborhoods being built around the perimeter of town. In June 377 homes were sold at a median price of $221,000, a 9.4% price increase over June 2015.
Located just 25 miles west of downtown Charleston on I-26, Summerville has done an admirable job of keeping its charm while welcoming growth. New homebuyers are looking to Summerville for its proximity to some of the area’s top employers (Charleston Air Force Base, Boeing, Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, and soon Volvo). Summerville is also home to some of the top rated schools in the area. Dorchester II School District continues to receive high marks from both families and educators.
Summerville hosts the area’s largest arts and crafts festival. The Flowertown Festival runs for three days in early April every year. Artists from around the region have made this one of the Charleston area’s most popular events. Of course the birthplace of sweet tea pays homage to the refreshing beverage. The Sweet Tea Festival is held every September.
The schools, jobs and social life of Summerville make it the ideal live, work and play community. Come see for yourself.
