The house is located in the historic Harleston Village area of downtown Charleston. Considered the cultural capital of the south, Charleston has been well preserved over the years and is rich with history ready to be explored.
Just a 10-minute walk from the house, is the corner of King & Calhoun where you’ll find plenty of local bars, gourmet restaurants, and unique shops. This popular area is a great place to start your adventure.
As you walk along the coastal area of the city, you’ll find the famous Battery, a seawall and promenade. Many historic and grand houses line The Battery, making it an ideal place to go for a scenic stroll. Next to the Battery, you’ll also find White Point Garden, a great place to have a picnic near the water on a sunny day.
For a fun day at the beach, these beaches are all located just a 15-minute drive from the house: Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, or Sullivan’s Island.
