The oak trees bend overhead to create a welcoming canopy, while the pines stand tall against the Lowcountry sky. This stretch of River Road feels so far from everything, given the timeless nature that Johns Island maintains even today. It’s tranquil, secluded and unspoiled, and for a fortunate few it can also be something else — home.
Nestled within the woods and wetlands is Riverview Estates, the latest neighborhood created by Ashton Woods, a renowned home builder with a trusted presence in the Lowcountry. A 47-homesite enclave, Riverview Estates offers the convenience of easy access to Kiawah Island and downtown Charleston, the quality and personalization that are the builder’s hallmark, and natural surroundings at peace with Johns Island—one of a few pristine locales remaining in the burgeoning Charleston area.
“Johns Island does a very good job of protecting the environment and integrity of the landscape,” says Jason Schwartz, Ashton Woods’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “You’ll find beautiful trees, wetlands, and native vegetation. The community is in a serene, private setting and has a very Lowcountry feel.”
Currently under construction and with a model home slated to open in late 2019, Riverview Estates offers the Lowcountry lifestyle that lures so many to the Charleston area, along with a location that’s convenient to work and entertainment options. Savannah Highway and West Ashley are just minutes away in one direction, Maybank Highway and James Island just minutes away in the other.
Riverview Estates is 15 minutes from I-526, the gateway to Boeing, Joint Base Charleston, North Charleston and the airport. Residents can reach the restaurants and nightspots of downtown Charleston in roughly 15 minutes, and the public beach park on Kiawah Island in 20.
Added to that convenience are seven different floor plans, ranging from three to six bedrooms and two to five baths, which offer something for buyers in all phases of life.
“Whether you’re a downsizing empty-nester, a first-time home buyer or a family with children, Riverview Estates has something for everyone,” Schwartz says. “That’s because our one- and two-story homes feature open floor plans with flexible options like guest suites and three-car garages, and the ability to personalize and truly bring your vision of home to life.”
That personalization, among the defining characteristics of a company that’s been a homebuilding mainstay for three decades, begins with a trip to The Studio by Ashton Woods on Daniel Island. Here, clients work together with professional design consultants in choosing everything from lighting options to counter designs to fixture finishes, creating a home that reflects their styles and passions. Even move-in-ready homes are expertly designed to maintain the high standards the company was built upon.
The focus is less on volume and more on quality — the reason some home buyers are on their next Ashton Woods home, desiring that same personalization and peace of mind whether expanding to accommodate a growing family, downsizing once children have grown up and left home, or just relocating to a different part of town.
Recognized as Builder of the Year by Builder & Developer magazine in 2017, Ashton Woods is backed by 30 years of quality home building. Their other communities in the region include Nexton and Woodwinds at Cane Bay in Summerville, Sable on the Marsh and Sol Legare Preserve on James Island, Marsh View Commons in West Ashley, and Stratton by the Sound in Mount Pleasant.
Until the Riverview Estates model home is completed, potential buyers interested in exploring floor plans firsthand can visit the model home at neighboring Riverview Farms in Johns Island, or tour homes under construction at Woodwinds at Cane Bay in Summerville. Some homesites at Riverview Estates have already sold, and the builder expects strong demand with a price point that begins in the mid-$200,000’s — offering rare affordability for a single-family home in the heart of the growing Lowcountry.
“With only 47 homesites, we don’t expect availability to last very long,” Schwartz says. “At the pace we’re going so far, there’s an urgency in the opportunity.” Eager to learn more about the ideal confluence of location, tranquility and affordability that Riverview Estates can offer?
