An unparalleled blend of days gone by and present day amenities, Dunes West offers home buyers the opportunity to live in residential neighborhoods built in true harmony with the Low Country’s natural surroundings and historic past.
Located in the town of Mount Pleasant in Charleston County, Dunes West fronts the Wando River, Wagner Creek and Toomer Creek and features views of tidal creeks, the golf course, lagoons, deep water, marsh or woods. The property has almost 12 miles of waterfront.
A masterfully planned community, Dunes West features a wide variety of amenities coupled with an incomparable lifestyle to give its residents the finest in Low Country living. Just 15 minutes from the beach at the Isle of Palms, 20 minutes from the Charleston historic district and 10 minutes from I-526, homeowners are never too far from the action but light years away from the hustle and bustle of fast-paced life after they drive through the gates of Dunes West.
John Wieland purchased Dunes West in late 2002, making a special place to live even better. Now, with the introduction of Harborside, the newest phase of Dunes West, he plans a spectacular new array of recreational amenities, deep-water home sites, a boat launch and storage, acres of lush new coastal neighborhoods and a wide variety of new home styles. For those looking for the perfect home, just name your preference. A stylish town home? A one-of-a-kind estate home on the Wando River with deep-water dock? Or perhaps the charm of gracious traditional homes shaded by century-old trees? Whatever your dream home, it is available in the newest neighborhoods of Harborside.
"All homes in Dunes West are given careful architectural review in order to continue Dunes West’s tradition of gracious and handsome home designs that give our neighborhoods that distinctive look,” says Dunes West General Manager Kevin Popson. There is a home in Dunes West to match every lifestyle."
