The mixed-use village of Freshfields is both destination and inspiration. It’s an everyday gathering place for those who live, visit, and work on Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, and Johns Island. But, much like a “Crossroads” of years past, it is also an intrigue to those from more distant environs. Pleasurable for pedestrians, restful for vacationers, convenient during lunch breaks, and revitalizing to residents, Freshfields Village celebrates healthy lifestyles and a fresh approach to living.
Social and communal activities help the continual growth of business for the village’s mostly local merchants. The informality if streetscapes pervades alleys, interior courtyards for shops and restaurants, and the natural buffers of vegetation that encircle it all. Landscaping, architecture, and pleasant walkable streets enhance daytime errands and leisure, and set the stage for lively evenings spent with interesting company.
Freshfields’ stores bring their own uniqueness to the community. From the old-fashioned soda counter and the family owned pizza place to the toy store and the local doctor, the Village offers and unparalleled assortment of stores in the Lowcountry.
To provide connections with Lowcountry surroundings and its setting near the sea, Village architecture draws upon our Carolinas’ rich coastal heritage. Unlike uniform developments obviously created by “one hand,” Freshfields Village appears to have arisen over time as a multi-textured collection of charming structures fashioned from wood with brick, stucco, tabby, or shingle-style elements. Vernacular exteriors with traditional rooflines extend a welcoming personality. Open sheds with verandas, over-hanging roofs, Bermuda shutters, operable louvers, and breezeways, composed in practical unpretentious shelters, reinterpret cherished regional styles. Intimately-scaled buildings set along well-shaded pedestrian streets and ways foster community connections and inspire memories of Freshfields Village as a destination for spirit and enjoyment.
