Charleston

Why you'd want to live in Charleston

Charleston combines southern charm and exciting modern flare earning many top awards including being named the Best City in the World to Live in 2016 by Travel & Leisure as well as United State’s Best City by Conde Nast. Charleston is known for its Civil War history, old world southern charm and the beautiful tree-lined scenery that adorns most of the city streets. It is a top destination for tourists worldwide and for those who want to call this area home on a permanent basis. From the breathtaking golf course community of Shadow Moss Plantation to the adorable brick bungalow homes of Riverland Terrace or the luxurious properties of Peninsula real estate, it is safe to say, if you are thinking about moving to Charleston or live here already there are many options available. Shopping for a home in Charleston can be both easy and difficult in that many people love those old southern style houses with the wraparound porches. If you are looking for charming one and two story homes with these classic features like extended porches look no further than Carolina Bay or Wagener Terrace real estate for sale. Both of these affordable communities are in the downtown region and are a popular choice for families, retirees, and young working professionals. From the tree lined streets to the best in sunset views by Ashley River, this community is definitely for nature lovers. Known for its luxury and high standard of living, Charleston also has many middle-class neighborhoods too. Although home prices may seem high for this area, especially in the old part of town, you can find a lot of new construction going on in the surrounding parts of the city. For instance, Byrnes Down homes for sale offers some affordable homes close to just about everything you need which is positioned close to downtown and Sullivan’s Island. In these awesome communities you are still close enough to experience the glory of old Charleston, but far enough away where you get more of a suburban feel that reminds us we live in the 21st century.
