Located at the tip of the peninsula, South of Broad is Charleston’s best-known and most exclusive residential neighborhood. The community is named South of Broad because it is made up of the area south of Broad Street to the tip of the peninsula.
Many of the homes South of Broad, some of which were originally built by wealthy plantation owners and merchants, were constructed in the grand style and often feature details from the Georgian-Palladian architectural era. Tree-lined cobblestone streets, European-style landscaped gardens with iron gates, and views of Charleston Harbor make South of Broad a picturesque and tranquil area, located just blocks from Downtown’s bustling shops and restaurants.
