Welcome to The Ponds...

Return to the Lowcountry. The smell of salt air. Quiet backwaters. Oak trees draped with Spanish moss. Storytelling on a front porch. Shrimp boiling in the kitchen. A life reminiscent of a simpler time. At The Ponds you will experience Lowcountry living, where small town life blends with a relaxed coastal atmosphere. Here the land is cherished. Of the 1,950 acres, only 850 will be developed and the remaining 1,100 acres will be placed in a permanent Conservancy. The Ponds is an extension of historic Summerville, a town that has remained largely unchanged by the passage of time, with its quaint downtown, beautiful old homes and friendly townspeople.


  • Pool - a 25-meter competition saline pool
  • Schulz Lake - perfect for fishing, canoeing or kayaking, and you can paddle down the Ashley River or explore the headwaters of the river.
  • Ponds - a great spot for launching a remote-controlled sailboat, or learning to kayak or taking the family out for a canoe ride.
  • Miles of hiking and walking trails surrounding the South Carolina new homes and in the nature conservancy.
