But Whitney Lake is changing that impression. Located on River Road less than a mile east of Maybank Highway making Whitney Lake an excellent choice.

A residential community set around a man-made lake, Whitney Lake offers rural living with city style. The townhome floor plans include three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath or three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath configurations. Interiors are designed to appeal to the upscale buyer featuring granite countertops in some homes, hardwood floors downstairs, plush carpet upstairs with the option to upgrade to Berber carpet.

Extra details that appeal to home buyers are 9-foot ceilings for larger-feeling rooms. Crown molding accents the dining room and foyer. Bathrooms have ceramic tile floors and 42-inch cabinets.

Chip Pruett, an agent with Blanchard Calhoun Commercial, said that Whitney Lake is a great buy from every angle.

The pricing on these homes is sweet, too, ranging from $158,990 to just under $172,000. Pruett adds, “We offer in-house financing, and we have great rates right now.”

The neighborhood itself is eye-catching, with its tree-lined streets and walking paths. All homes have lake views and are fully landscaped, and in-ground sprinkler systems keep it all beautiful. Two floor plans are available in two-story and three-story styles. Large porches are reminiscent of old Charleston, and spacious back patios.

Best of all, the residents of Whitney Lake are close to attractions such as the Angel Oak, the Charleston Tea Plantation and Beachwalker Park at Kiawah Island.
