Brickyard Plantation: Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

History Hangs Over The Lowcountry like Spanish moss on heavy oak limbs, so perhaps it is not surprising to learn that Brickyard Plantation in Mount Pleas­ant has an interesting past. Built on the site of a working brick planta­tion, it has evolved into a stunning community of neighborhoods.

By the time construction began, only a few ruins remained of the old plantation, but, if you look carefully, you can still see traces of the past. An eight-acre lake marks the area where the material for bricks was dug out.

Mary Carson, an agent with RE/MAX, says that "the old kitchen and another building and kiln are gone but there is still one kiln left. When you walk along the creek, you can still see where the brick was loaded for shipping."

The entrance to Brickyard Planta­tion is impressive and an indication that this is a well-designed, well laid-out development. Extensive landscaping only adds to the appeal.

"I like the way the subdivision is laid out, with the beautiful park­way," Carson says. "Most neigh­borhoods within Brickyard have entrances off the main parkway."

Although there are approximately 850 homes on the property, the neighborhood design belies that density. Home prices range primar­ily from the mid-$300s to more than $2 million. Carson points out that the average home cost is around $550,000.

"Many fami­lies are on their second or third home in Brick­yard," Carson adds, "because they like the area so much. Some move up to larger homes and others are downsiz­ing. There is something for everyone."

Residents enjoy ameni­ties such as the elegant clubhouse, tennis courts and pool but best of all is the boat launch and floating dock on Horlbeck Creek. And that little bit of history that lingers along the creek bank.
