Imagine living in a place where you have everything you ever wanted: a beautiful home; a safe and friendly community where kids play outdoors and neighbors know each other; and access to a wide array of amenities, all a 10-minute drive from downtown Summerville and 30 minutes from historic Charleston.
You don’t have to imagine it: You can find it all at The Ponds, a master-planned community by Kolter Homes located in Summerville. The Ponds combines the convenience of a newly-built home with the charm of old-fashioned values amid the moss-draped oaks of the Lowcountry.
Residents of The Ponds can take advantage of a variety of community amenities, including miles of trails for walking, running and biking; a community garden; and two ponds plus nearby Schulz Lake at the headwaters of the Ashley River, perfect for fishing, canoeing and kayaking. An on-site YMCA offers additional recreational activities to individuals and families.
That’s not all. By the time Kolter Homes completes the expanded amenities, The Ponds will boast a multipurpose field, a volleyball court and outdoor picnic and grilling areas. A second swimming pool will be under construction by the end of the year. It’s enough to keep residents busy year-round. “The people that live in The Ponds are very active,” said Mike McLendon, vice president of Kolter Homes LLC.
The homes are sized from 1,900 to 4,000 square feet and are priced from the $270s to the $400s depending on size and finishes. Kolter Homes offers a wide array of design options for personalization. All homes feature a two-car garage and front porches and many also feature screened porches, extended patios, and/or sunrooms.
“Cresswind at The Ponds, a gated enclave within The Ponds, will consist of 600 homes. Homes at Cresswind are ranch-style with very livable floor plans, ranging in size from 1,400 square feet to 2,600 square feet.”
It’s a great place for families. Kids like The Ponds because they can ride their bikes, take advantage of the community treehouse and horseshoe pits, explore nature and play outside. And parents like it because they feel safe letting their children play outside. They also like the fact that The Ponds is located in Dorchester School District Two, one of the best school districts in the state.
And, for the 55-and-up crowd, Kolter Homes brings its award-winning active adult brand to Summerville – Cresswind at The Ponds. At Cresswind, homeowners will be able to take a short walk to a 12,000-square-foot clubhouse, enjoy pickle ball and tennis, participate in activities at an event lawn and an amphitheatre and reap the aesthetic and culinary benefits of fire pits and an outdoor grilling area.

Homes at Cresswind are ranch-style with very livable floor plans, ranging in size from 1,400 square feet to 2,600 square feet. They will sell from the mid-$200s to the mid-$300s, depending on which options homeowners choose when they meet with Cresswind’s design coordinator. The homes are situated on 50-foot and 60-foot homesites.
“It’s all right here. The Ponds is a unique property,” McLendon commented. “You can find something new to do here every single day. Summerville is a Norman Rockwell town, and The Ponds is the best-kept secret in the Charleston area.” With all that Cresswind has to offer, it will not remain a secret for long.
