Beautiful Charleston is world famous as an historic old city yet has grown continuously through the decades into the thriving modern city it is today. The West Ashley community developed in the 1940s across the Ashley River from Charleston’s peninsula as its first suburban area because of this growth. Today, West Ashley is a popular community with a nice mix of old and new subdivisions, home prices for every budget and the feel of country living only ten or fifteen minutes from downtown. U.S. Highway 61 and U.S. Highway 17 cross through West Ashley and offer lots of shopping, business services, restaurants, churches, medical facilities and the popular Citadel Mall. Folly Beach is a short twenty minutes away and water sports are close at hand on the Ashley River.
