Charmed by Charleston

Charmed by Charleston

Charleston blew us away! I had high expectations for it, which oftentimes can make a place a bit of a let down. That wasn’t the case with Charleston. It was definitely different than I had pictured, but even more amazing & unique. We walked around just in awe of the bright, beautiful, charming homes that made me fall in love with Charleston real estate. The historic churches, the greenery, and feel were also amazing. In the South of Broad neighborhood we stopped at almost every home to take in details. It was so interesting to see how so many of the massive homes are faced sideways which makes you feel like you’re right back in the way things used to be in early Charleston. It’s another world and pulled us right in!


South of Broad neighborhood– The highlight area for us, sitting at the edge of the peninsula. It is filled with beautiful historic residential homes and gardens. You will get lost in the fairytale of Charleston’s unique features…I could have wandered here for hours!

  • How neat!!! Charleston is my home. You hit all of the great places! If you did not get the chance to visit the farmers market on Saturday in Marion square you should check it out next time around. The children’s museum is also a great place for the kiddos!
