historic home mt pleasant

Despite its location just across the harbor from historic Downtown Charleston, Mount Pleasant has few historic homes for sale at any given time.

The communities with the closest proximity to Downtown especially (see below, Ravenel Bridge) are some of the most expensive due to the high demand from home buyers. Keep this trade off in mind when comparing neighborhoods because generally the best locations tend to have the highest prices per square foot. However, if a shorter commute leads to a better quality of life, more time spent with family, and less
