What's Happening

Featured Neighborhoods

South of Broad

  • Price Range: $500,000 - $10,000,000
  • Unique Amenities: The backdrop of most selfies taken in Charleston, this historic district offers quirky cobblestone alleys, grand harborfront homes, and a reasonably quiet place to live - except when the horse-drawn carriage sweeps down your street with camera-toting tourists! Not for the faint of heart - prices reach to $10 million - but can start around $500,000. Make your in-laws proud.
  • Insider's Note: While walking distance to many restaurants, art galleries, and the King Street shopping district, there is no need to cross Broad Street for you favorite stinky cheese, specialty daily sandwich or bottle of wine with Goat.Sheep.Cow on Church Street. After you walk through the narrow alleys and streets South of Broad, stop by Burbage's Grocery on Savage and Broad for a slice of tomato pie or the handmade lemon pound cake.

Ansonborough / Gadsdenborough

  • Price Range: $300,000 - $6,000,000
  • Unique Amenities: Charleston’s first ‘suburb’ in 1696, this distinctive and comfortable neighborhood provides great walkability - the main downtown grocery store, shopping, dozens of restaurants, and intimate pocket parks make this one of the most desirable spots in town. The renovated Charleston Gaillard Center provides a nice backdrop after its $150 million renovation and the developing section of Gadsdenborough offers luxury condominium residences - most with waterfront views or city views of the new 6-acre park - for those looking for a low maintenance lifestyle.
  • Insider's Note: Hurry and stop by the intimate 167 Raw - where you will find the town’s best lobster rolls and ceviche - before the tourists find it and keep its limited seats full all the time or have a glass of wine in the courtyard at the intimate boutique hotel Zero George. The new Gadsdenborough Park offers soccer fields, playgrounds, bocce courts, and a welcome breeze off the Charleston Harbor.

South of Crosstown

  • Price Range: $300,000 - $12,000,000
  • Unique Amenities: While South of Broad and Ansonborough neighborhoods are our current favorites, the rest of downtown offers a vibrant and diverse range of homes and apartments catering to young (and young at heart) professionals and upwardly mobiles seeking a walkable and urban texture to their daily lives. Chosen as one of the best cities in the world, it is no wonder the demand exceeds the supply close to the urban center of the City. Of course, you may have to fight off some college kids for parking spaces!
  • Insider's Note: Not a secret, but the Famers Market every Saturday is a don’t miss where you can pick up fresh eggs and fresh pasta, along with your breakfast. Take a walk through the gentrifying areas along Spring and Cannon streets and stop in for a sandwich at Artisan Meat Share or comfort Asian fare at Xiao Bao Biscuit. Grab a good book at Blue Bicycle Books on King and then snag a bench at the new Theodora Park at George & Anson for a good read in the shade.
