Located 25 miles northwest of downtown Charleston and minutes from historic downtown Summerville, Sanctuary Cove residents enjoy neighborhood greenspace and outdoor amenities that include fishing ponds, a playground and swim club. 

Buyers can choose from six home designs, which range in size from the single-story three-bedroom two-bath Rosemont model to the spacious Mitchell model, with three to five bedrooms. Every home includes a two-car garage and Smart Home technology.

“Sanctuary Cove has seen a high level of demand and tremendous growth in a very short time,” said Ann Taylor, General Sales Manager. “We are thrilled to open up this new enclave and offer a wide choice of affordably-priced floorplans for those who want new construction and the ability to pick out their own building site and then plan and personalize their home to make it their own.”

Sanctuary Cove is located within Cane Bay, which for years has been among the highest selling master-planned communities in South Carolina and in 2020, reached No. 7 nationwide, with sales up a staggering 59 percent over 2019.

Nestled in the heart of Berkeley County — ranked the fastest growing county in the state and No. 17 in the U.S. — Cane Bay boasts top neighborhood schools for all grade levels. Paved nature trails for walking and biking meander throughout the community and the new 65-acre Cane Bay Family YMCA offers a workout facility and wellness programs, natatorium, tennis courts, basketball and ballfields. 

Centex plans to build 254 homes in Sanctuary Cove, with 101 already closed. The community is located at 388 Sanctuary Park Drive, Summerville.

Interested buyers are encouraged to virtually view and tour the homes from any smartphone, tablet or computer. Visit cove to request more information and join the VIP Interest List to receive community updates.
