Daniel Island

Daniel Island is a lovely master planned island town within the city of Charleston. The community is made up of eight traditionally designed residential neighborhoods and while suburban by design, there is an almost urban flavor with condos and townhomes, shops and businesses at the Island’s center. Developed with careful and meticulous planning as a self-sufficient, small town, Daniel Island offers residents a true sense of community.

Residents of Daniel Island enjoy a variety of businesses and services in their own little downtown. Shops, restaurants, medical offices, a Publix supermarket and office buildings with several of Charleston’s largest employers call Daniel Island home. An elementary and middle school opened in fall 2006 joining Bishop England, one of the finest private high schools in the state.

The 17 court Family Circle Tennis Center anchors downtown and features a clubhouse, fitness facility and pro shop. The Family Circle Cup, one of the top tournaments in women’s tennis is held every April.

Adjacent to Blackbaud Software, one of the first businesses to move to Daniel Island, is Blackbaud Stadium, home to Charleston’s professional soccer team, The Charleston Battery.

Outdoor sports lovers will enjoy Daniel Island’s hiking and bicycle paths, boating, fishing and swimming along with a private nature preserve, crabbing docks and more.

All builders on Daniel Island are carefully screened for quality and a strict Architectural Review Board must approve all design plans. Where To Retire Magazine has  included Daniel Island in “America’s Top 100 Master Planned Communities”.

At the northern end of the Island you’ll find Daniel Island Park, the Island’s private Country Club neighborhood with homes available starting at approximately $1 million dollars. The Daniel Island Club offers two 18 hole championship courses designed by Rees Jones and Tom Fazio. The magnificent clubhouse offers a bar, both indoor and outdoor dining and the pro shop. The Park Club is home to the club’s swim, tennis and fitness facility. There are also many homesites available in Daniel Island Park to custom build your dream home.
