My husband and I have been in Del Webb Charleston for just over a month. We like it here very much. The people are all very friendly. Just in the first week, we received three dinner invitations! There are plenty of activities, and upon joining, people are very welcoming. The new Publix grocery store is very conveniently located. Other stores are a bit of a drive so that when you leave here, you should plan to be out for awhile, but there is a pretty good cross section that provides most everything you'll need. In terms of location, being near Charleston is a plus. That city definitely has personality and being close to the beach is great, too. We looked around for about three years. In terms of other Del Webbs in SC, this one is smaller, but we like that. Prices of homes when we bought gave much more bang for the buck here than in other SC Del Webb communities. We're still adjusting, of course, but thus far, we feel we made the right decision in moving to Del Webb Charleston.
Fantastic community, so much to do if you care to. Amenities are wonderful pools, fitness center, tennis, pickle ball and so much more. Can't say enough one has to experience for themselves.
We're looking at building the Tifton Walk plan with the 2nd floor loft. We've looked at the pricing for some of the extras we like and we feel ok with the final price. I would rather start with a lower base price and add in only the things we really want vs. spend money on things that are not that important to us. We love the clubhouse and all the amenities. We're excited to build our home here!
June 21, 2013: Just returned from SC and spending hours at Del Webb. We looked at 7 fully furnished complete homes(different sq footprints and styles) adjacent the Visitors Center. We also looked at 10 homes in various stages of completion. We viewed 10 lots available for purchase. Very impressive organization, clubhouse and planned community.
The basic cost is THE BASIC and everything else is an "upgrade" for an additional fee. Even the lot to build on is an upgradable fee of $10-20,000. HOA cost reasonable. Building 40 homes last week with a 4.5mo window for occupancy. Only selected lots have been released for sale.
We checked this place out a few months ago. It is way, way off the beaten track; seemingly far from Charleston and at the very back of a planned community that apparently was hard hit by the economic downturn. Eventually it will probably be fine but at the time we visited there were no models to show us and what we did see as new construction had a long way to go to being updated 2012 desired homes.
