The city of Charleston developed on a peninsula between the Ashley and Cooper Rivers extending into Charleston Harbor. As it outgrew its land area, growth spilled over into the land west of the Ashley River in the 1940s and 50s into a residential and commercial area that is known as the West Ashley community (though still in Charleston’s city limits). West Ashley today thrives with dozens of subdivisions, retail developments, redeveloped older neighborhoods that have become en vogue again and added amenities such as Citadel Mall, the region’s largest indoor mall, and Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital, the area’s newest.
Another wonderful asset to the West Ashley community is Shadowmoss, the only residential golf community in West Ashley.  As you drive into the quiet streets of Shadowmoss, you will enjoy beautiful landscaping, graceful oaks and mature hickory trees, quiet cul-de-sacs and charming, well-maintained homes.  Shadowmoss residences are constructed in harmony with the environment around the ponds, fields and streams on the land of one of Charleston’s old original plantations. They are also built with lovely views of the community’s signature 18-hole public golf course that Golf Digest names “the best golf value in Charleston”.
This family-friendly neighborhood saw the first of some 1,100 patio homes, town homes and single family residences first built 25 years ago.  A master planned community; it is comprised of nine distinct neighborhoods offering something for every lifestyle and floor plan need. Newlyweds, couples beginning their families, young professionals, growing families, empty nesters and retirees all call Shadowmoss home, adding great diversity and interest to interaction with neighbors in community social activities. You will have much in common with neighbors here.
New homes in Shadowmoss are still being constructed. There are luxury condominiums in the Middleborough neighborhood as well. Ainsdale offers the feel of small town living with sidewalks winding passed homes with charming front porches.  The neighborhoods of Heather Glen, Dunwoody and Turnberry offer homes ranging  from 1100 square feet in patio homes to 3800 in large 5 bedroom, 4 bath custom homes. Lot sizes vary from 0.19 acre to 0.50 acre.
