Downtown Charleston Real Estate

An alluring city famous for its Colonial architecture, Charleston features historically significant real estate and multiple cultural venues. Recently, the city of Charleston was ranked as the number two city in world by Travel + Leisure magazine, which comes as no surprise to locals and tourists alike. While “Charlestonians” are pleased to have this national accolade, most take greater pride in being recognized as the “best-mannered” city in the United States. In addition to being polite, Charleston is commonly known as the “Holy City” because many of the church steeples are visible throughout the low-rise cityscape. Charleston has a gentle yet omnipresent attraction that entices visitors to become permanent residents. Homes can be found along the Peninsula, which overlooks the Charleston Harbor. Here, the Ashley River and Cooper River forge together into the Atlantic Ocean, resulting in breath-taking waterfront views. The Charleston Battery, for example, boasts waterfront estates that emulate the city’s traditional mode of architecture. Homes along Church Street, Rainbow Row, Wentworth, and other interior or cobblestone roads also reflect the antebellum style. Charleston, which was established in 1670, is rich in history and has a complicated past. During the Colonial era, the Charleston Port was used to bring in and sell African slaves. Read More

The old slave market still stands today and is used to sell Lowcountry trinkets.

From 1776 to 1785, Charleston served as a focal point during the American Revolution and was often under attack by the British. Fort Moultrie, located on Sullivan’s Island, was constructed during this period by thick palmetto logs, which could not be penetrated by British gunfire. As a result, the Palmetto Tree became the state of South Carolina’s signature symbol. The city found itself in the spotlight again during the Civil War with many battles taking place on its prosperous soil. When the Confederates surrendered, the city suffered great financial damage, but through industrial work and an entrepreneurial spirit, soon began to flourish again. A massive earthquake in 1776 caused colossal damage, but the strength, resiliency, and character of the historical city proved victorious once more. Currently, Charleston is the second largest city in the state of South Carolina and is admired world-wide for honoring its past while celebrating its future.

Downtown Charleston real estate owners are privy to the many cultural experiences and historical venues across the area. From the annual Spoleto Festival, which features theatrical performances and dance troupes from around the globe, to the nostalgia of Patriot’s Point, residents enjoy a variety of recreational, educational, and cultural activities. For recreation and relaxation, residents play in the pineapple fountain at Waterfront Park, catch a Charleston Riverdogs baseball game at Joe Riley Stadium, cheer on the Charleston Battery Soccer Team at the MUSC Health Stadium, or celebrate the passionate play of the Charleston Stingrays hockey team at North Charleston Coliseum. For athletes who prefer to participate rather than spectate, the City of Charleston Recreation League offers numerous adult and children sports seasons such as baseball, lacrosse, basketball, flag football, and soccer. Water enthusiasts enjoy paddleboarding along the Charleston Harbor, kite-surfing at Sullivan’s Island, surfing at Folly Beach, collecting seashells at Edisto Beach, or flat fishing in one of the many tidal creeks. Educational opportunities throughout Charleston are endless too. From college or graduate classes at the College of Charleston, The Citadel, or Charleston Southern University to enrichment classes offered through the county libraries, the Charleston Museum, or the Gibbes Museum of Art, the city has a course to suit the needs of every type of learner. Cultural experiences and art appreciation are two hallmarks of this ancient city. Patrons enjoy watching plays and live performances at the nation’s oldest theater, Dock Street Theater (1736), and musicians enjoy harmonizing melodies at the Charleston Music Hall, formerly a passenger station known as the Tower Depot (1849). Annual activities like the Spoleto Festival and the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition attract world renowned ballet troupes, orchestras, playwrights, artistry, and exhibits that critically challenge spectators and expose viewers to differing viewpoints and southern lifestyles.

Truly, the city is more than just a place to live; it is daily living in a place that is timeless and sacred. Welcome, to the Holy City!
