Charleston, with its historic downtown sitting on the Charleston Harbor, continues to gain accolades as one of the premier destinations in the world. However, there is more to Charleston than just a tourist destination. It is home to a wide range of full-time residents and people looking for a second home in a charming city.
The neighborhood names near the historic district exude old city charm: Elliotborough, Harleston Village, Wraggborough, South of Broad, Radcliffborough, French Quarter. However, a short bike ride away, the Hampton Park Terrace and Wagener Terrace neighborhoods hold their own against the historic neighborhoods with a charm all their own.
Home sales in these neighborhoods and others in downtown have stayed active in 2016. There were 91 homes sold in June with a median price of $533,500 compared to 74 homes at $488,000 in 2015. Yes, downtown Charleston is thriving.
Come experience the charm of Charleston right outside your home - walk the battery, enjoy the breeze as you look out to Fort Sumter in the Charleston Harbor, stroll through the historic, stately homes in South of Broad, some dating to the late 1600 and early 1700’s, enjoy the sidewalk dining along East Bay and the award winning restaurants dotted throughout the city.
Is the beauty of these neighborhoods the reason that Conde Nast named Charleston the number 1 city in the U.S. four years in a row and number 2 city in the world in 2014? Possibly. Or maybe it is the plethora of award winning restaurants that contributed to Travel + Leisure naming it the “Best City in the World”. Come see what makes you name Charleston #1. It will probably be a combination of these things, but it will be Charleston's people that will really win you over.
We look forward to speaking with you soon. Give us a call to find out which neighborhood is fits your style the most.
