Perhaps no other downtown neighborhood better captures the Old World charm Charleston is known for than the French Quarter. With its narrow alleys, cobblestone streets and buildings dating from the late 1600s, it is popular among homebuyers.
As a result, it’s also one of the city’s most expensive neighborhoods with home prices starting around $1 million. Just north of Broad Street and east of Meeting, the neighborhood is perfect for homebuyers wanting to live in the heart of Charleston.
Taking its name from the French Huguenots who lived there in the early 1700s, the neighborhood is within easy walking distance of restaurants, art galleries, museums, shops and other attractions. The neighborhood is home to 30 art galleries as well as the renowned Dock Street Theatre, which has hosted a range of music and theatric performances since opening in 1736, including a number of events of the annual Spoleto Festival.
Nearby restaurants include Magnolia’s Grill 225, McCrady’s, 82 Queen, Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar and many others. The neighborhood offers history around every turn, including some of the South’s oldest churches like St. Philip’s Episcopal, the first Anglican Church south of Virginia, and the French Huguenot Church, one of the best examples of gothic architecture in downtown.
