“The tide was a poem that only time could create, and I watched it stream and brim and makes its steady dash homeward, to the ocean.” ~ Pat Conroy, "South of Broad"
One of the most famous and desirable neighborhoods by the wealthiest of folks in Charleston is called "South of Broad". This is the part of the historic district made famous in Pat Conroy's book by the same name, and tourists from all over the world come to the city to see the Antebellum plantation homes right out of the pre-civil war history books.
These mansions usually start at around a million dollars and go into the multi-millions, so the average home-buyer can only dream. But there are both buyers and sellers for these magnificent estates, and the market is not as affected by the regular industry's ups and downs as are regular homes in Charleston.
For those who can afford to own one of these distinctive homes with their moss-laden oaks and magnificently sculptured gardens, they offer an investment unlike any other real estate in the United States. Whether along the most desired and scenic streets, or with a breathtaking view of the waterfront, a home "south of Broad" is as good as it gets in South Carolina's wealthy society. You might also consider looking at the rare condos for sale South of Broad for an affordable alternative to homes.
