Welcome Home ....
Ashborough Subdivision is a quiet community of over 400 homes with covenants and restrictions, located on the outskirts of Summerville, South Carolina.
One of the major considerations when developing Ashborough Subdivision was to maintain as many trees as possible. That principal has been maintained since inception. In addition to the variety of home designs and square footage available, significant lot size and homeowner attention to creative landscaping provides a feeling of seclusion and individuality to each residence.
The Ashborough Civic Association (ACA) consists of all homeowners in the subdivision. The Ashborough Civic Association owns the common areas throughout our neighborhood and maintains them for the use and enjoyment by our members and their guests. The two main recreational areas are the Ashborough Avenue Complex and Mayfield Park.

Covenants, Restrictions, & Bylaws
Ashborough Subdivision and the Ashborough Civic Association are governed by Covenants, Restrictions, and Bylaws. The purpose of the Covenants, Restrictions, and Bylaws is to maintain and promote the property values and aesthetics of all common properties and homes in the subdivision and have an equitably and reasonably enforceable set of rules and restrictions which control the exterior appearance of all structures on the lots and common properties of the subdivision.
Prior to closing or at closing for your home you should have been made aware of the Covenants, Restrictions, and Bylaws and provided a copy by your realtor or legal representative for your review. This document is a legal and binding part of the deed for your lot and home. If this did not happen, address the issue with your legal representative for you are bound by the Covenants, Restrictions, and Bylaws whether you were aware of them or not.
In order to best serve our new (and existing) neighbors, the Board of Directors has appointed an Architectural Review Committee (ARC). This perpetual committee is made up of residents with particular expertise in the Covenants and Restrictions, as well as general building knowledge, exterior design, and tree protection. The ARC will help you get your proposed changes approved quickly, or work towards a compromise that works for both the homeowner and the Association. The average turnaround time for an ARB request is less than a week. Should a homeowner be denied an ARB request by the ARC, they may appeal the decision to the Board of Directors, that still make up the ARB as defined in our Covenants and Restrictions.
The section below highlights a couple of areas which most likely will immediately affect a new homeowner or renter in the subdivision ‐ the complete copy of the Covenants, Restrictions, and Bylaws is available on the Ashborough web site, www.ashborough.org.
