Downtown is the Place for Charleston SC Historic Homes!

Homebuyers have several good reasons for buying Charleston SC historic homes. First, Downtown Charleston remains a center of activity. From endless dining and boutique shopping opportunities, to unique cultural events, to the charm and romance of a horse drawn carriage ride, Downtown Charleston has an atmosphere no suburb can match!

Second, the stock of Charleston SC historic real estate is plentiful. Some houses are ripe for restoration. Others are newly restored. And still others have been superbly maintained for nearly two centuries.

Third, you have many choices if owning a house in Historic Charleston SC is your dream. You aren’t limited to some narrow “historic district” – there are beautiful historic Charleston homes or even pied a terres throughout the Downtown Peninsula! Take a look, and see if there isn’t a historic Charleston neighborhood right for you!

Charleston South of Broad: Picture-postcard Living

South of Broad is the Historic Charleston SC neighborhood where it all began. From the founding of Charleston in 1670 until after the War of Independence, life in Historic Charleston took place within the city walls, between East Bay and Meeting Streets, with the intersection of Church and Broad serving as the center of town.

As city life and commerce expanded outward, South of Broad became a neighborhood of stately historic homes on oak-lined streets, with lush private gardens and incredible views of the Harbor. In the springtime, the window boxes South of Broad spill over with beautiful flower arrangements.  White Point Gardens is the place where tourists and Charleston residents go to enjoy endless shade and harbor breezes, as well as weddings in the newly restored Band Shell.

Rainbow Row and The Battery are two South of Broad addresses where homebuyers will find the most exclusive, most expensive Charleston SC historic properties.  Without a doubt, owning a piece of Charleston history just South of Broad is picture-postcard perfection!

Charleston’s French Quarter: The Cultural Capital

The French Quarter is a neighborhood of Charleston SC historic houses with Old World charm and culture to spare!

Lying roughly between Meeting Street and East Bay, and Cumberland and Broad Streets, the French Quarter is a collection of historic Charleston houses from the Colonial and post-Colonial era. Homebuyers will find charming brick and stucco houses lining shaded cobblestone streets.

The French Quarter has always been a center of Charleston’s cultural life. Here, you will find numerous art galleries, as well as the Dock Street Theater and the Footlight Players Theater. Popular stage destinations year-round, these venues also host several performances during Spoleto USA, Charleston’s world-renowned festival of the arts. To own a Charleston SC historic home in the French Quarter is to be mere minutes from your next exciting cultural experience!

Art isn’t the only attraction to entice homeowners in the French Quarter, however. Just outside the peaceful residential core is the entire dining and shopping experience of East Bay Street, with the serene beauty of the Charleston Harbor providing the perfect backdrop.

Charleston’s Harleston Village: King of Convenience

Harleston Village grew up along the western side of the Downtown Charleston Peninsula in the years after the War of Independence, known as the Federal Period. Today, homebuyers looking for Charleston SC historic homes will find that Harleston Village offers a wide selection of Georgian, Greek Revival and Victorian homes to choose from. Additionally, a number of modern condominiums have been built that offer waterfront views and access to the Charleston Marina.

Harleston Village is adjacent to some of Charleston’s largest employers – its hospitals including the renowned Medical University of South Carolina and the College of Charleston. So, naturally you will find a diverse cross section of people living in Harleston Village, from students to medical professionals.

Owners of Charleston SC historic homes in Harleston Village will enjoy a number of dining and shopping options along Calhoun and Upper King Streets. And the shopping, dining and services of West Ashley are just over the ­­­­­picturesque Ashley River Memorial Bridge. Harleston Village just might be the peak of convenience in Historic Downtown Charleston!

Charleston’s Ansonborough: Exciting and (most) Affordable

One of the first historic Charleston neighborhoods to be developed outside the city walls, Ansonborough started taking shape between 1820 and 1860. By the mid 20th century, Ansonborough had become neglected and run down. A renaissance has occurred in the past few decades, however, and Ansonborough has become a very popular Downtown borough for homebuyers seeking historic property in Charleston SC.

Stretching from the Charleston Harbor to King Street, and radiating outward from Calhoun Street, Ansonborough offers a varied assortment of Charleston SC historic homes including remodeled row houses, Charleston single homes, double homes and townhouses, as well as modern waterfront condominiums.

Ansonborough is located within walking distance to an amazing range of amenities. You can take in the bars and nightclubs of Upper King Street. There are also dozens of restaurants and boutique shops to experience on King Street. The Farmer’s Market is held every Saturday in Marion Square during the warmer months. There’s also the Maritime Center and the Aquarium on the Harbor, and the Galliard Auditorium, home of the Charleston Symphony and many other events throughout the year.

Of all the neighborhoods on the Downtown Peninsula, Charleston SC historic homes in Ansonborough are often the most affordable!  And Ansonborough offers easy access to I-26, and the Ravenel Bridge to Mt. Pleasant, which offers homebuyers a whole new range of shopping, services and restaurants.

Historic Charleston is Calling You!

When you own a Charleston SC historic home, you need only to step out your door and walk around the corner to experience everything Downtown Charleston has to offer. And when you’ve had your fun, you go home to peace and quiet.  When it comes to charm, bustling activity, rich heritage and owning a piece of American history - Charleston SC is hard to resist!
