With condominium prices starting in the upper $100s and a prime downtown location near the College of Charleston and Medical University of South Carolina, Harleston Village is an ideal choice for buyers whether looking for a primary residence or investment opportunity.
Since it’s one of downtown Charleston’s larger and most diverse areas, there’s typically a good selection of condos here, the top end of which easily exceeds $1 million. Within easy walking distance of the best restaurants and shops Charleston has to offer, the village is comprised of about 50 blocks of the peninsula and is bordered by Calhoun Street on the north, King Street to the east and Broad Street on the south.
Once an area predominantly of tidal creeks used was to provide the city’s cotton and rice mills with power, the village slowly evolved into one of its most upscale neighborhoods as creeks were filled in for lavish residences. Close to historic King Street, downtown Charleston’s retail center, the village area offers some of the city’s top parks.
Nearby Moultrie Park offers tennis and basketball courts, a playground and more, while Colonial Lake, a 10-acre park around a tidal lake, is a favorite of walkers and joggers.
