South of Broad

South of Broad is Charleston’s most storied neighborhood and perhaps the most exclusive part of Downtown and perhaps the entire state. Rows of palatial antebellum mansions line East Bay and Meeting Streets but you’ll find homes of all shapes and sizes on the quaint wandering streets. Perhaps the quietest neighborhood of Downtown, residents here enjoy the tranquility of the suburbs with the proximity of urban living, though this district is very popular with meandering tourists and horse drawn carriages.  In the past 10 years it has become a favorite of part-time second-home owners, and you can still find native Charlestonians and families if you look in the right places. Homes here range from around $1,750,000 to $20,000,000.
