If you love to walk to restaurants and shops, Ansonborough is within a few blocks of the Harbor and Market St.  The Harris Teeter grocery store is just across East Bay St from this neighborhood and the Gaillard Auditorium borders the northern side. Many of the homes in Ansonborough are made of brick, built after a fire ravaged the original homes in 1838 and range from $550,000 to $3,000,000. There is also a good selection of condos on the Harbor, starting at $400,000 at Dockside, Laurens Place and Anson House, with a new one called The Gadsden that opened in 2018.

With some of the most extraordinary acoustics I’ve ever heard, our new performing arts center is second-to-none. Plus, the building houses our city offices so this is where you go to attend meetings like Zoning and the Board of Architectural Review. At George and Anson Streets.


What can I say, every now and then I like to sit in a huge massage chair and read trashy magazines while someone paints my toes. This bright open space is beautiful, and the ladies do a fantastic job. Book ahead during wedding season! At East Bay and Inspection Street.

Tucked inside a brand new building (with a nod to historic architecture) on the Corner of Calhoun and East Bay is a favorite local compounding pharmacy. Go here for your basic needs and all your prescriptions. And they deliver!.
