Daniel Island has approximately 12,629 residents as reported by the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2017 estimates. That’s an uptick of over 2,000 residents since 2010. Located in Berkeley County between the Cooper River and Wando River, the first homes sprang up about 20 years ago. Since then, the master-planned community has added more homes, parks, walking trails and amenities for residents that rival (and surpass) similar communities throughout the U.S.

Daniel Island has been recognized for its innovative master plan by developers all over the country and has received top honors including Urban Land Institute Award for Excellence; Outstanding Project Award by the South Carolina Chapter of the American Planning Association; Community Design – Best of State; Best in American Living (BALA) award for smart growth by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB); and a host of mentions in national publications.

This lovely island town, in evidence of its increasing population and economic growth, is the best place to live in Charleston County, according to those who call it home. Town homes, single-family homes and expansive estate-like homes make up the diverse community.


The Design

According to the Daniel Island Park Association, the concept of the neighborhood is one that embraces the environment – the wetlands, vegetation and natural features – while evoking a strong sense of place in terms of architecture. Deriving inspiration from Lowcountry villages and towns, “the elegance and gracious quality,” from small attached homes in the center of town to the larger homes built with fabulous water views; there should be a consistency in “vocabulary, materials and form.” The simplicity of form – pitched roofs, porches, high ceilings and dominate rooflines – is a distinct characteristic of all homes on Daniel Island.

Within the whole are intimate neighborhoods that have access to beautiful green spaces, trails, bike paths, parks and activities. Daniel Island’s ambiance is one of a suburban neighborhood of the 1920s and 30s, but the scale is more in keeping with an island town or village. The understated elegance of the architecture and park-like setting combines to create a serene and harmonious living space, with streets interconnecting one neighborhood area to another. Daniel Island’s design is modeled after Frederick Law Olmsted’s architectural and landscape artistry – ensuring the cohesiveness between nature and man made environments appear as if they have always been there. Each neighborhood has its own park and DITRAILS (Daniel Island’s trail system) has 23 trail loops and trail markers to ensure residents and visitors can navigate through them, via walking, jogging or cycling.
