Pocket neighborhoods

Ute Appleby, Pocket NeighborhoodA "pocket neighborhood" is a clustered groups of neighboring houses or apartments gathered around a shared open space — a garden courtyard, a pedestrian street, a series of joined backyards, or a reclaimed alley — all of which have a clear sense of territory and shared stewardship. They can be in urban, suburban or rural areas.

 Pocket neighborhoods are settings where nearby neighbors can easily know one another, where empty nesters and single householders with far-flung families can find friendship or a helping hand nearby, and where children can have shirttail aunties and uncles just beyond their front gate.

One of those neighborhoods is "Village Park",  located in the heart of Mount Pleasant SC. The neighborhood is nestled behind the Sea Island Shopping Center conveniently located between Coleman Blvd and Chuck Dawley Blvd. This centrally accessible location makes getting to Village Park a breeze from the Sullivans Island,  downtown Charleston, West Ashley  or Awendaw. 

Village Park is a short bike ride away to Sullivan's Island, the Old Village, Pitt Street Bridge and Shem Creek. Many popular restaurants and local shops are within a short walking distance. Purchasing your home here will offer you the enjoyment of all that Mount Pleasant has to offer without stepping behind the wheel of a car.
