Curbside pick up and drop service is available at The Village Library! One of our best kept secret neighborhood amenities! If you have never been by, I encourage you to do so, super cute and a great place to take the kids!
The Village Library, originally called the Mt. Pleasant Library, opened June 19, 1931. It was first housed in a single room next to the post office. Funds for a new building on Whilden St. in downtown Mt. Pleasant were obtained through public contributions raised by the Mt. Pleasant Exchange Club in addition to funds from the Charleston County Legislative Delegation and the Town of Mt. Pleasant. The new building opened Aug. 2, 1948. Local organizations contributed gifts of funds for books, and the Mt. Pleasant Garden Club undertook the beautification and maintenance of the grounds. The Town of Mt. Pleasant has contributed funds for books and building maintenance.

Super exciting news! The Post House Tavern + Inn now serves lunch- Tuesday – Friday from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Just as exciting as the new lunch menu is the creative force behind it. Chef Nick Wilber, a familiar face at Basic Projects, is now the executive chef at Post House Inn. The celebrated chef, who first worked with Owner Ben Towill at The Fat Radish in NYC before making his way down south to work at Basic Kitchen and then open The Fat Radish Savannah, will now helm the kitchen operations at Post House. Nathan Hood, the former exec chef, now takes on the role of Culinary Operations for Basic Projects Hospitality.
If you have not been recently, you must check them out! I went for brunch and highly recommend their Post House Benedict along with a Bloody Mary! Simply superb!
Information provided by Charleston Trident Association of Realtors Median Home Price Continues to Climb, Sales Slowed by Lack of Inventory
1,398 homes sold in January in the Charleston region at a median price of $360,000 according to preliminary data released today by the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors® (CTAR).
Sales volume declined slightly, by 3% when compared to last January’s sales of 1,447 homes. Median price increased by 14% from the January 2021 figure of 315,000.
Inventory data shows 53% fewer homes, with 1,203 homes listed as “active” for sale in the CHS Regional MLS database at the end of the month—representing just under one month’s worth of available inventory.
I recently attended the Charleston Trident Association of Realtor’s Housing Market Review and would like to share a few take-aways. Overall the Charleston Market is still humming along, inventory is still low and buyers are still looking for homes.
Charleston’s Median Sales Price is up, with the most significant jump taking place from 2020 to 2021. The Average Days On Market were at an all-time low in 2020, and although the average days on market were up slightly in 2021, the Charleston trend mirrors the nation wide stats.
So what is the forecast for 2022? Industry experts agree that the pace of sales growth may soften, but home prices will likely continue to remain elevated. And, housing demand will likely remain steady while employment rates are on the rise. The challenging factors will relate to supply constraints and consumers spending being down due the end of the stimulus money program. The other factor to watch will be rising interest rates. These factors may work together to slow the growth rate seen in 2021, but again, may not necessarily impact prices.

Alhambra Play Park is located across from Alhambra Hall at 131 Middle St. This classic play park features playsets, swings, picnic tables, and ample shade. There is also a bathroom, but I will not comment on the cleanliness at all times… Super laid back and plenty of parking! This is where my kids were raised and I have great memories of spending time here eating birthday cake with the other moms and dads!
