Sandwiched between two other historic Upper Peninsula neighborhoods and bounded by Highway 17, the Ashley River and Congress and Spring Streets, Charleston’s Westside community is slowly reviving. Most of the residences were built between 1930 and 1940 as the mayor at the time procured New Deal funding for a stadium and athletic field and demolished several dilapidated institutions.
The area’s modest-sized homes are eclectic in style, ranging from traditional Charleston singles to Craftsman-style cottages. Nearby amenities include Brittlebank Park, the Riverdogs Baseball Stadium, Harmon Field, Hampton Park and the Citadel Military College. The Westside neighborhood is an excellent choice for investors, as the historic properties are affordable and appreciate well when renovated.
