Amidst towering cypress groves that shade former rice plantations, Moncks Corner is a rural gem in the northern corner of Berkeley County. Historically a significant trade and transportation hub with its train depot and canal system, and now home to two Google data centers, Moncks Corner remains central to the vital flow of information that keeps our world humming.

Though mostly a quiet, rural community, new neighborhoods and developments are expanding the residential options. Popular neighborhoods include Moss Grove Plantation, Cypress Grove, Oak Hill Plantation, and Stoney Creek. Along with numerous opportunities for hunting, boating and fishing, the Trappist monastery, Mepkin Abbey, offers beautiful gardens for exploration, and Cypress Gardens offers an intimate glimpse of a unique habitat featured in the movie, “The Notebook.”

Median home prices listed are for single family detached homes.
