An established community conveniently situated off Highway 17 North in Mt Pleasant, Charleston National is well-known for its championship golf course, premier tennis facility, and lowcountry architecture. The community comprises condos, townhomes, single family homes, and waterfront estates. Abutting the Intracoastal Waterway, many of the waterfront homes feature private, backyard docks that are situated directly along the waterway or along a deep-water tidal creek. Other residences showcase views of the Copahee Sound, freshwater ponds, marshlands, or golf course, which anchors the community. Designed by Rees Jones, the semi-private, 18-hole championship course features fastidious fairways, hidden bunkers, tall pines, lush landscape, and sweeping views of the Intracoastal Waterway. Golf Digest ranks Charleston National as one of the top courses in the region, and the golf club hosts junior golf camps, ladies golf, clinics, and tournament play. In addition to golf, the development is also well-known for its tennis facility, which offers both competitive and leisure match play.
Other amenities in Charleston National include community swimming pools, fitness facility, walking-jog trails, and the newly renovated Rees Pub, located at the golf club. Residents enjoy observing lowcountry wildlife, kayaking or paddle boarding in the waterway, and frequenting nearby local establishments such as Mex 1, Wild Wings, Umi Japanese, Mellow Mushroom, and Charleston favorite Seewee, which is located a few miles north in Awendaw. Families with young children appreciate the top-rated Mount Pleasant schools: Carolina Park, Cairo Middle, and Wando High School. Downtown Charleston is a short 20-minute drive away.
