Homes in I’On range in price from $500,000 to $3,000,000 for finished square footage ranging from 1,670 square feet to around 8,000 square feet. Most lot sizes are small, as the neighborhood’s overall density is approximately 3.8 units per acre, allowing plenty of acreage for all the green spaces that the neighbors share. Lots vary from .16 acre to .30 acre. The homes in I’On are mostly two and three stories tall and on raised foundations which give a beautiful vertical impression around the two lakes.

Many of the homes’ architectural appearances and styles are modeled on I’On’s gracious older sister cities of Charleston, Savannah and Beaufort. The Charleston single home style is reinvented here, with the classic double side porches exterior and thoroughly modern interior. There are Federal facades, Colonials and Low Country cottages also. Fences are allowed as long as they do not interfere with or obstruct access to utilities. Landscaping plans must be pre-approved by the I’On Design Committee. Most homes are required to have a porch at least eight feet deep.

If you are considering making I’On your next home, it is encouraging to note that, per capita, South Carolina has one of the lowest tax rates in the country. To get an estimate of your taxes, multiple the fair market value by four percent. Take the result and multiply it by Charleston County’s .3133-millage rate. This is roughly what your taxes will be annually. In I’On there is also a one time only Transfer Assessment paid to its assembly when you purchase an I’On home. This is handled at closing.

Coming home to the I’On village is not like coming home to a subdivision elsewhere. Here you are buying a beautiful, well-constructed home but you are also purchasing much more. You are investing in a community in which you will walk on tree-shaded sidewalks and wave to your neighbors in the evenings. Here you will shut out the rest of the world when you return home daily and focus on your family’s time together. Here you will have a life.
