About The Elms of Charleston
Welcome to The Elms of Charleston, a 55 and over community designed for the lifestyle of mature, active adults.

The Elms of Charleston is built on the site of one of the South’s oldest and grandest plantations, The Elms. Dating to 1694 when Ralph Izard purchased land, a rich and colorful history influenced by the charm of Charleston began. Today The Elms is a 250 home community capable of expanding to approximately 325 homes. Residents experience the independence, security, and benefits associated with single-family home ownership. Detached patio homes, attached garden homes, and condominium units comprise the single level homes.
