Imagine living in the heart of Mount Pleasant’s Old Village—where all you need is just a few steps away! What sets the Old Village apart from newer neighborhoods in the area is just that—it is a true neighborhood. With a commitment to keeping history pulsing through the streets, this community features historic and updated homes that are bordered by parks, gathering spaces, shops and churches. Stroll to nearby Shem Creek for lunch on the water, go for an evening jog on the Pitt Street Bridge or visit the weekly Farmer’s Market to pick up local fruit and vegetables for dinner. Or if you’re feeling more adventurous, bike to downtown Charleston or Sullivan’s Island beaches. It’s all within reach from Earl’s Court!
The origins of the Town of Mount Pleasant can be found in its beautiful Old Village. In fact, the Town gets its name from Mount Pleasant Plantation, the 1777 home which is located three blocks west of Earl’s Court. The unpretentious character of the Old Village is defined by its stately 18th and 19th century structures. Homes in Earl’s Court combine the timeless architecture of the Lowcountry with comfortable finishes and modern advances.
Tennis courts, athletic fields, boat landings, and prime fishing grounds are but a short walk or bike ride from Earl’s Court. Enjoy views of Charleston Harbor from Alhambra Hall, go for an evening jog on the Pitt Street Bridge or explore the many waterways by kayak or paddle board from Shem Creek.
