There’s something special about being able to truly live where you live. So many people crowd into subdivisions and neighborhoods in search of a simpler lifestyle. They want a sense of community but in their busy lives, it’s almost impossible to find.

Visit The Ponds, a nature-filled community in Summerville, and discover what it means to do more than buy a house and exist day to day. Unearth what it means to live life to the fullest, experiencing all the benefits of being surrounded by nature, community and small-town living.

The oak-lined streets and wooded landscapes create a natural setting that provides all the comforts of country living while just minutes from schools, shopping and everyday services and necessities. The waterfront amphitheatre and village center are a natural gathering place for neighbors to become close friends. The Lowcountry property has more than 20 miles of private trails for hiking and biking plus another 38 miles of sidewalks perfect for a morning jog or walking the dog.

It’s not usual for the community to come together for special events, such as oyster roasts, an Easter egg hunt, July 4th parade and family picnic and a holiday shopping extravaganza, at the restored 19th-century farmhouse with adjacent swimming pool and outdoor pavilion. The Ponds also has 11 acres of grassy meadows for Saturday morning soccer, Sunday afternoon football or tossing the Frisbee after school.

Water lovers will flock to Schulz Lake for fishing the abundance of largemouth and smallmouth bass, catfish, brim, crappie and mudfish. Or paddle your canoe or kayak into the Ashley River. The Ponds also is home to seven parks and green spaces, including one with a treehouse built around one of the largest grand oaks. The kids won’t be the only ones eager to climb this treehouse looking for a hideout.
The picturesque experience homeowners have at The Ponds flows seamlessly into the Town of Summerville, with its historic downtown square, vibrant arts and culture scene and endless calendar of small town activities and festivals.

Life at The Ponds blends nature, friendships, Southern charm and easy living into one vibrant community. So many people look for these amenities but it’s rare to find them all bundled into one neighborhood and ready for immediate enjoyment.
