Kiawah River

Charleston, S.C.—Located on one of Charleston’s barrier islands, the new luxury community Kiawah River reported an unprecedented sales record in the first quarter of 2021, surpassing its overall sales total for the previous year. As full-time remote work becomes a possibility for more U.S. workers, this somewhat remote Lowcountry agrihood is attracting buyers from across the U.S. who are eager for the opportunity to live in a planned community that feels more one-with-nature and less suburban sprawl.

So what exactly is an ‘Agrihood’?

A growing movement in real estate, the National Association of REALTORS® describes agrihoods as “agriculture-based communities constructed around a farm, with the idea of having access to freshly grown produce nearby.” These planned but not cookie cutter-style developments are attracting “food- and conservation-minded buyers” according to NAR. In fact, The Urban Land Institute states there are currently well over 100 agrihood developments across the U.S., with more on the horizon in the coming years.

The community offers 2,000 acres of land, including working farms, a goat dairy, and CSA.
