Wagener Terrace Home Sales Triple (and median price is up 20% too)

Well. There you have it.  For years I have been saying that Wagener Terrace is a neighborhood on the rise, possibly one of the coolest neighborhoods in town because of its proximity to the heart of Downtown Charleston, its great people, and its relative affordability. And the people have been listening. 🙂 I checked the sales numbers from January 1...

Best Home in Downtown Charleston Under $2,500,000 – 113 Ashley Ave in Harleston Village

As a jaded (spoiled) Downtown Charleston Realtor who has seen it all, it is rare that I walk into a home that inspires instant love and admiration. 113 Ashley Ave in Harleston Village, just had me go ‘ahhh’.  Not only is it impeccably restored and set up for comfortable, everyday living, but also it is the perfect home for a medical...

Mayor Riley’s 2012 State of the City Address – a focus on Charleston developments and my two cents

On January 24, Mayor Joseph Riley gave his State of the City address, outlining what has been accomplished in Charleston, his vision for the (last?) four years of his term, and ongoing City initiatives. I thought I’d pull out the text regarding the developments on the Charleston peninsula, many of which I have mentioned in the past on this blog...

The Horizon Project. From Concrete to Community in the City of Charleston.

Take a look at this area and tell me what you see. Vast swaths of concrete and cars, a few buildings, a few ball fields. A pretty nice park.  It’s an area that is mostly disconnected from other neighborhoods in Charleston – on the south, north and the east.  It’s where we locals go to pay our parking tickets, or...

Update on the Preservation Society’s Master Preservationist Program

As many of you know, I spent last winter attending class once a week with the Preservation Society, to become a Master Preservationist through their very first pilot program.  We explored, we learned, I blogged and took photos – and am all the better for it.  It was an incredible experience then, so it can only be even better the...
