The private gated On the Harbor community overlooks the Cooper River and the Charleston Harbor. The estate-like dwellings in this 21-home community were built beginning in the 1990s. There are homesites available, and construction has continued into 2012. Many of the waterfront homes feature deepwater docks, and the development has a community swimming pool. Sizes range from 2,600 square feet to 5,300 square feet. The Ravenel Bridge connecting Mt. Pleasant to downtown and the rest of the Charleston area is less than three miles from On the Harbor.
