The historic peninsula is framed by the Wando, Cooper, and Ashley rivers and is home to historic churches and synagogues, museums, galleries and award-winning restaurants. The peninsula is also one of the Southeast’s best shopping districts noted for local boutiques, fine art and antiques. Campuses of the College of Charleston, The Citadel, the Art Institue of Charleston, and the Medical University of South Carolina are interwoven among walkable, bikable neighborhoods, parks and “boroughs.”

Housing options include multi-million dollar historic mansions and luxury condominiums South of Broad Street, apartments, and smaller old homes loaded with character in Radcliffeborough, a mix of 19th century Charleston single homes and contemporary townhomes in the Cannonborough/Elliottborough neighborhoods, and quaint bungalows and fixer-uppers in Wagener Terrace, and the upper peninsula area.

Median home prices listed are for single family detached homes.
