A small town located just north of Mount Pleasant, Awendaw is quiet and rustic. The sparsely populated area is part of Charleston County and about 45 minutes to an hour from the downtown peninsula. Residents enjoy owning acreage, and the lifestyle in Awendaw definitely has a country-living feel. Much of the town is located within the Francis Marion National Forest or on the Intracoastal Waterway, enabling property owners to choose from wooded and waterfront home sites. The most recent development in the town is the Bulls Bay Golf Course and Country Club, which features luxury homes and lots for home building. While the area is private and peaceful, it is also just close enough to the amenities of Mt. Pleasant and the beaches of the Isle of Palms.
