From Café to Parks, Amenities Abound in this Summerville Community

Sponsored by: Front Door Communities
Some neighborhoods are simply a collection of houses. People come and go without really stopping to soak up their surroundings, make friends with their neighbors, or sit on the front porch with a glass of sweet tea.
One Summerville neighborhood has transformed what it means to be a true community. Summers Corner is a place where neighbors sit a spell and children are playing games – just not the kind with screens. Instead of spending their time indoors, friends gather at the local café or at the swimming pool.


Summers Corner is minutes from the heart of historic Summerville with shopping, dining and entertainment. Children attend the award-winning Dorchester District Two schools, which received the South Carolina Department of Education’s Red Carpet Award for its outstanding family-friendly environment.

A new elementary is planned for the Summers Corner community, making walking to school a reality for students in the community. Rollings Middle School of the Arts will unveil its new location at Summers Corner in 2017 as well.


A heavy focus on community means residents have access to amenities at Summers Corner not often found in a traditional development.
Parks and gardens: No home is more than a 5-minute walk from a park or public garden, making outdoor play and exercise easily accessible.
Farmers Market: Shop for locally grown produce and jams plus fresh flowers at the market on the last Tuesday of each Summer month.
Waterfront living: One of the defining landmarks at Summers Corner is Buffalo Lake complete with an open-air lakeside pavilion, fishing dock and storage for canoes and kayaks.
Coffee’s brewing at The Commons: A delicious cup of coffee, fresh pastries, a glass of organic wine or a great sandwich are all available at Corner House Café. The café is situated in the heart of The Commons, a gathering place that makes up the heart of Summers Corner. On the weekend, stop by for food trucks and live music. Or watch the master gardeners work in the community garden.

Swim season: Hot summer days are best spent at the residents-only Pool House with a resort-style swimming pool and large deck, a shallow children’s area and splash pad. Gather your friends in one of the shady areas to grill some burgers or spread out the picnic blanket.
After a day at the swimming pool, kayaking on Buffalo Lake or walking the community trails, residents can return home to their own special slice of Lowcountry living. FrontDoor Communities, a semi-custom builder, has crafted homes filled with Lowcountry charm and distinctly local character.
