HISTORIC CHARLESTON

Charleston is a small city unlike any other in the country. Residents enjoy living on cobblestone streets with homes dating back 300 years that have been painstakingly preserved. Horse-drawn carriages clicky clack down the streets with visitors thinking they just saw a pirate run down an alley. The history provides the back drop for an urban lifestyle that offers cultural venues, museums and outstanding restaurants equivalent to most major cities. Housing options are as unique as the city.

Real Estate Options

Options for homes in historic Charleston are quite diverse. Historic homes are a passion here. Homes ranging up to 300 years old have been painstakingly restored. "South of Broad" is the prestigious address in the city, but many other gorgeous homes above Broad Street would challenge that statement. Homes range from $100,000 for a fixer-upper to $23,000,000 for a palatial, 17,142 sq ft Charleston Gem, the Sword Gate House.  Condos/Townhomes/Row Houses range from $100,000 to $3,450,000 for 6500 sq. ft. row house with a "South of Broad" address. There are newer condominium buildings, so if you prefer newer, we have perfect options. Shopping for a home in downtown Charleston is quite interesting with the cobblestone streets, slanted floors of historic homes and stories of what happened on the premises when the pirates last visited.

Things To Do Downtown in Charleston

There is an endless list of things to enjoy in Charleston. It sounds corny, but you have to do the carriage rides. There are about 8 tours randomly assigned so the neighborhoods don't get too jammed up with horse drawn carriages. You will gain an immediate appreciation of the history of this magical town. The boat ride out to Ft. Sumter is a must. Ft. Sumpter was the site of the first battle of the Civil War. Enjoy breathtaking views of Charleston and the harbor while you relive history.  Visit the Gibbs Museum of Art where you come face to face with stories of the South Carolina low country as seen through paintings, sculpture, and photographs at Charleston's signature art museum.  To view cultural and national history objects from ancient fossils and an enormous whale skeleton to elegant costumes and Civil War artifacts come to the Charleston Museum.  For those who love the theatre, the Dock Street Theatre hosts the Charleston Stage Company's full season of plays, musicals, and theatre.  Or how about a candlelight ghost tour through the heart of Charleston's "haunted" history. The list goes on and on.

Location

The city of Charleston is located just south of the mid-point of South Carolina's coastline, at the confluence of the Ashley, Wando  and Cooper rivers, which flow together to the Atlantic Ocean. Charleston Harbor lies between downtown Charleston and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a 10 minute ride to the beaches at Sullivan's Island or Folly Beach. The airport is about 20 minutes away.

Annual events

Just a short list of signature annual Charleston events for your recreational pleasure and enjoyment include:  Spoleto Festival USA (huge cultural arts festival), The Charleston Boat Show, Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, Charleston Food and Wine Festivals, French Quarter Art Walk, Festival of Houses and Gardens, International Antiques Show, Cooper River Bridge Run, The Garden Club of Charleston Annual House and Garden Tour, Charleston Harbor Fest, Fall Tours of Homes and Gardens, and the annual Charleston Parade of Boats.
