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 on 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 are targeted to 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.
