The Palmetto Fort area of Mount Pleasant is located off Six Mile Road, which connects to Rifle Range Road just above the Isle of Palms Connector. Although it is close to many amenities and the beach, this part of Mt. Pleasant is still relatively rural. Some houses are obscured from the road, and one of the streets remains unpaved. The real estate in the Palmetto Fort area includes some homes on half-acre lots that were built in the early part of 2000 and some open half-acre parcels for custom home construction. The homes found in this community measure around 1,800-3,500 square feet.
