About Skyler Estates

Skyler Estates is the area's premier independent living apartments. We are a friendly small town community where you will enjoy relaxed and care-free retirement living.

Skyler Estates’ 42 wonderful apartments are located on 40 acres just east of Charleston on the beautiful campus of the award-winning Greenhurst Nursing Center; owned and operated by the Schaffer family for over 50 years. The Estates are for tenants looking to simplify their lives: no more yard work, no more endless house repairs, and no more worries about the rising utility bills. You will never have to pay property taxes or homeowners insurance again! All inclusive means one simple monthly payment; which includes rent, utilities, cable, trash disposal and landscaping. Your telephone is the only exception. There are no hidden fees.

Our deluxe two bedroom, two bath apartment features a
spacious 1,000 square feet, private garage, and a beautiful front porch. Cost, including all bills, is 1,325 dollars per month.

Our superior one bedroom, one bath apartment features a roomy 750 square feet, private garage, and a beautiful front porch. Cost, including all bills, is 965 dollars per month.

The lush Greenhurst campus has two ponds, one of which features its own charming gazebo and picnic area. Here you will find regular and butane grills for entertaining friends and family. The pond is well stocked with bass, bream, and crappie. Ducks and geese roam the pond and surrounding area. A community garden is a favorite activity among tenants.

Each luxurious apartment includes washer and dryer, refrigerator, microwave, beautiful wood cabinets and your choice of electric or gas range. A gas burning stove in the living room adds heat and cozy ambiance. The apartments have a state-of-the-art security system that monitors and alerts first responders for heat, smoke, fire and burglaries. Each apartment comes with a complimentary personal alarm pendant that will summon the fire department or emergency medical response in case of an emergency. A “safe room,” which can withstand F3 tornado winds, has been added to your garage for your protection.

For a nominal donation, daily lunch deliveries are available Monday through Friday by the Charleston Senior Citizens Center. Arrangements can been made with CV’s Family Foods to deliver groceries to your apartment weekly. The nursing center is within walking distance and tenants are invited to participate in a wide range of daily activities. Tenants may also take advantage of the beautician and beauty shop located in the nursing center. Part-time assistance for cleaning and personal needs is available from staff at Greenhurst for an additional charge. The local pharmacy offers delivery service. Tenants living in Skyler Estates will have priority admission to the nursing center if the need arises.

All Skyler Estates tenants have access to our exclusive Clubhouse. The Clubhouse is available for parties and gatherings at no charge upon request. This spacious yet intimate room accompanies 30 plus people and includes a full kitchen, big screen TV, restroom and furniture. A hand-crafted deck has been added outside the Clubhouse for additional entertaining space. It features a stainless steel grill and plenty of seating. “The Skyler Inn” is also available for your out of town visiting guests. This fully furnished apartment is available to rent by the night or week.
