Downtown Neighborhoods

Downtown Charleston is comprised of many different neighborhoods. I refer to them as the various “boroughs” of the area. Even though they’re all part of the peninsula, they are all very diverse and each represent a unique part of Charleston. Charleston is divided by The Crosstown, which is where Highway 17 takes visitors in and out of downtown. The division of the different neighborhoods is helpful not only for direction, but also is a good indicator for what type of property you might be surrounded by.

Inside of the Crosstown, or the southern parts of the peninsula, tend to have more expensive properties for sale and include the majority of restaurants and shopping. There are hundreds of luxury properties that date back as late as the 1700s here that are in amazing locations, surrounded by Charleston’s finest art, restaurants, architecture, and shopping districts. Many of the current properties for saleΒ consist of condos and homes that are $900K to $19.995M. With a mix of so much different property, there are condos and handyman specials available for under $200K, or a single-family, upgraded home between $300K-$600K. The neighborhoods of South of Broad, Harleston Village, French Quarter, Ansonborough, Radliffeborough, Mazyck-Wraggborough, Cannonborough-Elliotborough, and some of the Eastside belong to this area.

Outside of the Crosstown you will find current home prices can start at $25K for a “tear-down,” or “fixer-upper,” and that about 3/4 of property currently for sale is under $500K. The newer/renovated properties can go as high as $2.995M. The neighborhoods of Wagener Terrace, Hampton Park Terrace, North Central, Westside, and part of the Eastside belong to this location.
