“Mount Pleasant is a town of peaceful,
home-loving people, blessed through the ages with contentment. It has been said that the place is more than just a town, it is a state of mind.”
--Petrona Royall McIver,
History of Mount Pleasant South Carolina
July 11th, 1960
Edwards Place residents will enjoy the pace of life in the established Old Mt. Pleasant and historic Old Village communities. This highly-walkable waterfront area is a wonderful mixture of retirees, young families, and professionals who are drawn to the Lowcountry lifestyle.
Life here is like stepping back to a simpler time. A place where children still ride bikes to school, golf carts cruise slowly by, and happy dogs chase balls at the park. Around each corner, you will find Live oaks draped in Spanish moss and long marsh views. Examples of timeless Lowcountry architecture, with deep verandas and tall shuttered windows, line the streets. The air is sweet with the scent of jasmine growing wild over picket fences.
This is the land of pluff mud, palmetto trees, and porch swings.
