Today we are talking about a movement that is sweeping the real estate market..... Can you guess it?
It's the Tiny Home!
While the homes around Charleston are breathtaking and evocative of old Southern charm, they are often equally as grand in their size. This is just the ticket for some, though others may be looking to downsize without compromising the feel of luxury as well as practicality, and maintaining enough space to fit their lifestyle. Enter the Tiny Home movement that looks to maximize efficiency and to simplify living. These spaces provide benefits to the environment, personal finances and freedom to spend more time outside the home, perhaps traveling the world! And would you believe that 68% of Tiny House owners have no mortgage, as opposed to 29.3% of all U.S. homeowners (Source: The Tiny Life)?!
Ready to make the move? Take a look at this gem nestled in the walkable neighborhood of I'on, a bedroom community of Charleston. Modeled by world renowned planners including Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk and Andres Duany, masterminds of the luxury beachfront development Seaside, I'on is based on New Urbanism and the concept of improving walkability and sustainability within the community. You have an incredible Orthodox Byzantine Church, shops, restaurants, community club, pool, tennis courts, parks, a school and friendly neighbors all at your fingertips.
