Charleston offers architectural charm, natural beauty, and cultural diversity. This makes Charleston a comfortable home for people from other states and countries, as well as for the hospitable Charlestonians. With the change of population, locals have welcomed new activities and ideas, while maintaining the traditions of old, still enjoying oyster roasts, joggling boards, horse drawn carriage rides, and elaborate wedding ceremonies. This new unique blend of peoples and customs has contributed to the increasing growth of this vibrant and modern community, continuing to make Charleston a sought after location for those who have discovered this glistening gem. For the most exclusive real estate in what I think is America's most classic coastal city, this is the right spot to begin your search for that special property.

Founded in 1670, Charleston features some of the finest historic homes in the country. From spacious antebellum piazzas overlooking the harbor waterfront to private colonial gardens along cobblestone alleys, historic Charleston retains an old world image of horse drawn carriages, church steeples, moss laden live oaks, and wrought iron gates.
Blending of the historic past to the future direction of this city has been handled masterfully to retain the unspoiled beauty of this area. The recent modernization of the bridge from downtown Charleston into Mt. Pleasant has resulted in an impressive display from which to get a bird's eyer view of the civil war fortifications including Fort Sumter, Patriot's Point with the USS Yorktown, and the city of Charleston. From this vantage point waterfront homes in Mt. Pleasant can also be identified, as well as numerous marinas of the area.
Charleston is also called "The Holy City" due to the prominence of churches on the low-rise cityscape, particularly the numerous steeples which dot the city's skyline. The initial colonial constitution guaranteed religious freedom for all, and brought a melting pot of denominations giving a wide selection of services to attend.
The arts, antiques, and cuisine blend together to formulate a European mix that is unique to this city. Toss that with the outstanding architectural atmosphere for the creation of a city to behold.
The much wider Ashley River joins the Cooper River in Charleston to form the Charleston Harbor before discharging into the Atlantic Ocean. Two rivers converge into the Charleston harbor forging a seaway to the ocean that supports large container ships passing alongside an array of sailing vessels. Up and down the coastline islands stretch out offering different types of communities for different desires. From protected wildlife habitats of Dewee's Island and unspoiled beaches of Sullivan's Island to the internationally renowned golf courses on Kiawah and John's Islands, Charleston harmoniously fuses development with environment.
