NEIGHBORHOOD STATS

IN THE HEART OF THE CITY

 

Bordering the historic Market of downtown Charleston, Ansonborough is one of the most convenient boroughs on the peninsula. Quiet, shady streets intersect with well-traveled roads in this historic and charming neighborhood.  Rebuilt after the great fire of 1836, Ansonborough was the city’s first suburb and boasts some impressive historic homes which have undergone extensive restorations thanks to the work of the Historic Charleston Foundation.

Some of Charleston’s most beautiful homes can be found here, right around the corner from the city market and walking distance to everything.

"Our neighborhood is one of the best kept secrets in Charleston because we are right in the middle of everything, yet it still has a distinct neighborhood feel and we do not get all the tourist traffic of South of Broad."
