The Downtown Charleston Neighborhoods

Downtown Charleston captures everything this picturesque waterfront city has to offer: the downtown southern restaurants, charming hotels, cruise ships, Victorian-style homes, arts and crafts homes, historic bungalows, nearby beaches, markets, and shops; not to mention the Charleston Waterfront Park and the Charleston South Carolina Aquarium.

Parking is often a challenge in downtown Charleston, but your best bet is to find a parking garage off King or Meeting Street and spend some time walking around the bustling area. Staying in one of the many downtown Charleston hotels or bed and breakfasts is a romantic experience to be had by all and they are located close to all of Charleston's restaurants and attractions.

If you walk around long enough, you're sure to find some of your favorite cuisine. With Charleston’s location on the water, there are seafood restaurants serving up the daily catch on nearly every block. If seafood isn’t your fare, there are many Italian and American restaurants to choose from in downtown Charleston.

The Charleston Market is downtown's hub on the weekends. Vendors set up tables along the open-air market and sell a variety of clothes, apparel, and art. The market's location is just a couple blocks from the ocean and Charleston Waterfront Park. 

Who wouldn’t want to find their next home in one of the nearby Charleston downtown neighborhoods?  The Charleston neighborhoods are South of Broad, Harleston Village, French Quarter, Ansonborough, Upper Concord Street, Radcliffeborough, Mazyck-Wraggborough, Cannonborough-Elliotborough,   Eastside, Westside, Hampton Park Terrace, Wagener Terrace, North Central, and East Central.  This series of blogs includes some history, a brief market analysis, and the boundaries of each neighborhood.  Explore Charleston SC Real Estate and find the right neighborhood and Charleston home for you.

The Royal Governor, Lord Charles Greville Montagu, along with Lt. Gov. William Bull; Hecter Beranger de Beaufain, Collector of Customs and member of His Majesty’s Council; William Pitt, the British member of Parliament who defended Colonial rights; as well as John Rutledge, Thomas Lynch and Christopher Gadsden, who were active in the Provincial government and later leaders in the American Revolution; all were commemorated.

Charleston's French Quarter is home to many fine historic buildings, among them, the Pink House Tavern, built around 1712, and the Slave Mart, built by Z.B. Oakes in 1859. Also in the French Quarter are the Dock Street Theatre, arguably the first site of theatrical productions in the United States, and the French Huguenot Church, a beautiful Gothic-style church which houses the sole-surviving French Calvinist Congregation in the United States. St. Philip's Episcopal Church, the first congregation in Charleston, whose current building dates to 1835, is also in the French Quarter. St. Philip's cemetery is the final resting place of Edward Rutledge, the youngest signer of the Declaration of Independence, and U.S. Senator and Vice President John C.

Radcliffeborough

Charleston’s Radcliffeborough neighborhood began as farmland purchased and surveyed by Thomas Radcliffe in 1786. Thomas’ estate and his widow, Lucretia continued to develop the borough after Thomas was lost at sea in 1806.  In 1811, the Third Episcopal Church was built on four lots donated by Mrs. Radcliffe for this purpose. St. Paul’s convenient local and grand appearance attracted rice planters from the neck to worship alongside homes built by merchants and mechanics, several free black families (from before the Civil War) as well as slaves living apart from their masters and after the war, newly freed slaves.

Today, Radcliffeborough is as racially and economically mixed as it was then but its boundaries have grown from its original eight blocks to span from King Street to Ashley Avenue and from Bee Street, to Calhoun. It's topography has changed as well and would seem incredibly different to Thomas Radcliffe. In his time and even up to 1846, Calhoun Street did not exist. The area that would eventually become Calhoun was a millpond and Comings Creek ran through the land where the Cathedral of St. Paul now stands.

During the past six months Charleston’s Radcliffeborough neighborhood had 8 homes sold at an average price of $512,038.  See Charleston SC Real Estate to search for homes.

Hampton Park Terrace

Charleston’s Hampton Park Terrace is a neighborhood located in peninsular Charleston, South Carolina.  The land upon which the neighborhood is built was rural land until approximately 1900. At about that time, a few streets began being laid out in the northern end of the city. A few small houses were constructed at that time, but most of the land remained undeveloped. In 1912, three large sections of the neighborhood were platted. Those sections roughly correspond to the northwest quadrant, the southwest quadrant, and the southeast quadrant.

Most of the housing in the neighborhood was constructed between 1912 and 1925. The architecture of the neighborhood follows national trends of the period and represents a distinct break from the local tradition of Charleston's other historic areas.  Nevertheless, because of its largely intact concentration of early 20th century buildings, the neighborhood was added to the National Register on September 26, 1997.
