Interested in living close to the beach, but need to travel to Mount Pleasant, downtown Charleston, North Charleston or West Ashley on a regular basis? You should definitely keep the North Pointe subdivision off Ben Sawyer Boulevard on your radar. The neighborhood features homes of all sizes up to 3,000-plus square feet built in the 1980s and 1990s, some with yards that back up to a pond. North Pointe is less than three miles from the ocean and sand of Sullivan’s Island, just two miles from I-526 and three miles from the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge to downtown and I-26. Plus, shopping, dining and errands are all within this radius.
