Located just past Boone Hall Plantation and the Mount Pleasant Towne Center along Highway 17, Brickyard Plantation is one of the older “new” communities built North of the Isle of Palms connector. The “brickyard” in it’s name refers to the original brick making operation run by the Horlbeck brothers that used the unusual clay in the soil of their land to create the bricks used to build much of downtown Charleston. It is no surprise that brickwork is prominently featured in a beautiful neighborhood that is known for traditional, brick style homes.
The amenities are very nice at Brickyard. They include two pools including a junior olympic size pool, basketball court, tennis courts, fitness center, club house, walking trails, a children’s play park, and a community dock and boat ramp. The boat ramp is a unique amenity in Mount Pleasant and Brickyard’s homeowners cherish such convenient access to the waters of Horlbeck Creek and The Wando River.
All six subsections of Brickyard pay the same HOA fees per year, about $720, and covers all amenities. Homes in the front sections – The Preserve, Boone Grove, and The Colonnade – are vinyl, hardy plank, and brick mixed for their exteriors. The Colonnade section is the only one with the entrance off of Hwy 41 and does not connect to the rest of the neighborhood due to marsh and creeks. The Landing, Brickyard, and Daniel’s Landing are comprised of larger, more expensive brick homes. Lot sizes vary from just under ¼ of an acre to ½ an acre and up once you get in the back sections and include deep water, pond, marsh, and woods. Brickyard is situated a short 15 minute drive from the Isle of Palms beaches and roughly 20 minutes from downtown.
Brickyard Plantation has taken exceptional steps to preserve and protect this land. Bordered by Boone Hall Plantation and Horlbeck Creek, Brickyard has natural buffer zones to protect it from other developments. Of the 513 acres, more than 100 acres are dedicated to lakes, forests and wetlands. In residential areas, home sites are situated to take full advantage of the land’s beauty and natural diversity. Developed as debt-free and clean community with the property, infrastructure and amenities owned free and clear without liens and encumbrances, Brickyard Plantation provides property owners with an extra measure of security. Our leading position among Charleston’s residential communities has been well established.
Besides the many reasons to love Brickyard, homeowners enjoy other nearby perks of living in the Lowcountry, including great shopping at Towne Centre in Mount Pleasant, beaches, restaurants and Boone Hall Plantation, a beautiful historical plantation featuring fresh produce and fun events virtually year-round.

History of Brickyard Plantation
Courtesy of the Brickyard Plantation Homeowners Page
A corner of this enormous grant became known as Boone Hall Plantation, named after Major John Boone, the beneficiary of the King’s largess. The title to this land and the plantation of which it was part, passed from the Boone family to the brothers Horlbeck in 1817. Under their management, these 513 acres with natural deepwater access and unusual clay soil became first the plantation’s brickyard and then brickyard to all colonial Charleston. At its peak the mid-1800s, this land produced 4,000,000 bricks annually. The old brick chimney stills stands as testament to the labor that took place here.
Today, this land is once again alive with palmettos and cedar. Waterfowl abound in the marsh and along the edges of its many ponds. Horlbeck Creek features some of the most productive trout fishing in the Lowcountry. The Wando River, just moments downstream, is classified as one of the most pristine rivers on the Eastern seaboard; and, acre for acre, out produces the world famous oyster beds of the James River in Virginia.
