Dunes West is a gated community located just off Highway 41 in Mt. Pleasant.  It is made up of condos, townhouses, and single family homes that range in price from the high $100s to almost $3 million.  Dunes West is divided into many subsections, some of which are located outside of the gated section of the community.  The most affordable houses are found in this ungated area in subsections like Cypress Pointe and Palmetto Hall. 

Some of the more affordable subsections located in the gated section of Dunes West include Hartford Village, Whispering Marsh, Marsh Cove (which also has some more expensive homes), and Deer Walk.  Of these four subsections, the latter two have marshfront homes.  You can find homes for sale under $500K in all of these gated subsections.

If you are looking for homes over $500K in Dunes West, you will find many more options to choose from.  Darts Pointe, The Harbour, and Richmond Cove have very nice homes, and you can usually find homes just over that $500K price point in these subsections.  Marsh Landing is a marshfront subsection of Dunes West.  Brickfall Estates and Osprey Cove are located on the Dunes West golf course.  Last, Wagner Pointe is one of the most desirable subsections of Dunes West because it features homes that are both marshfront and on the golf course.  All of these subsections are located in the gated portion of Dunes West.

In addition to luxurious homes, Dunes West also has some of the nicest amenities in all of Charleston.  The golf course at Dunes West rivals those found at Kiawah and Wild Dunes.  You will also find a zero entry swimming pool, a wonderful club house, nine tennis courts plus a full time tennis pro, a community dock with boat ramp, a designated area for boat storage, a state of the art fitness center, a children’s play park, and plenty of walking trails.

The Dunes West Homeowners Association (HOA) dues for 2008 were $1,180 for residents in the gated section and $336 for residents outside of the gate.  Residents wanting full access to the amenities must pay for a membership.  The initiation fee for membership in 2008 was $1,500 for a family and $1,000 for an individual.  After the initiation fee, residents pay $750 annually for a family membership and $420 for an individual membership.
