Phillips Manor, Mount Pleasant

Located off Highway 41, on the way to Dunes West, is the Phillips Manor community. The five-acre subdivision was completed in 2007-2008 based with the goal to build a community of affordable housing in the midst of an area where home prices can climb in excess of $1 million.

Phillips Manor is a single cul-de-sac street lined with a sidewalk and 23 homes measuring from 1,200 to 1,300 square feet. The two-story houses are close to award-winning public schools and other important conveniences. The homes target families making less than 80 percent of the median income of the surrounding communities, and they sell for around $100,000 less than their appraised values.
