Ion Plantation Real Estate and Homes for Sale
Sitting directly across from the Charleston Peninsula along Hobcaw Creek in Mount Pleasant, is the beautiful 243 acre neighborhood of Ion Plantation. Historically, the land which Ion subdivision is built was a plantation owned by one of the original settlers of Mount Pleasant, Jacob Bond 'Ion. And before that, dating back to the mid-to- late 17th century when it was first settled, there is clear evidence of several nomadic tribes who passed through.
Today, Ion is a beautiful newly built neighborhood in the heart of Mount Pleasant. The homes in Ion are designed and carefully fashioned after the historic homes found throughout the City of Charleston. Some homes are actually built to the exact specifications of original homes constructed in the mid-1800s around the areas of the Battery, downtown. Constructed by just 21 different approved builders, these homes are built to last just as the historic homes that they are modeled after. When strolling around the subdivision, you will see that Ion neighborhood porches on the homes are over 8+ feet deep, offering a unique space for outdoor living.
The Ion neighborhood itself sits along beautiful creeks and marshes which branch off of the Hobcaw. The Ion Club offers great neighborhood activities and amenities for the community, including tennis, swimming and various camps for the kids, just to name a few. Residents of Ion share a fantastic building known as the Creek Club, which is set back on Hobcaw Creek which is great for conferences and social gatherings. The Creek Club features gorgeous wrap around porches and two gigantic fireplaces. Ion Square is where the action happens. It's yet another wonderful amenity for residents of Ion neighborhood to share, as it is a great place for outdoor picnics and gatherings. Ion Square often hosts Lowcountry style festivals and farmers markets. You'd have to see it to believe it! Ion neighborhood is a true American community with a lot to offer families who are interested in community involvement.
