Ansonborough Homes in Downtown Charleston

market street ansonborough charleston

Ansonborough lies just north of the Market, between Meeting and East Bay Streets. This is one of the smallest of Charleston’s historic neighborhoods, but it offers good walkability and a nice selection of homes dating from the early and mid 1800’s. When the neighborhood was first established in 1696, it was the first suburb of the oldest walled part of the city (which was then called Charles Towne). However, a fire in 1838 devastated most of this section, so the majority of homes and buildings you see today are what was built to replace the original dwellings. Ansonborough is a great neighborhood to consider for buyers wanting to live within easy walking distance of the shopping, restaurants, and sites of the Market (pictured) and King Street areas. Along with the French Quarter and Harleston Village, Ansonborough offers one of the most central locations on the Charleston Peninsula.

In the 1960’s the Historic Charleston Foundation made Ansonborough a model of preservation when it acquired and restored over 100 historic houses in the neighborhood. This large scale rehabilitation project spurred many home buyers to purchase and renovate in the community. Today, you’ll find that most of these houses have been updated and offer a very desirable and distinct feel of the old Charleston charm.

Within Ansonborough, you’ll find Gaillard Auditorium, which is the largest venue in Downtown Charleston and offers a range of ballet, opera, and orchestral performances (not to mention hosting some of the biggest Spoleto Festival events each year). This is also usually the site of the ever popular Nutcracker. Two of our favorite restaurants are FIG and Jestine’s Kitchen (both on Meeting Street), but Ansonborough also offers Cru Café, Anson’s Restaurant, and Hank’s Seafood. You’ll find more food options at the weekly Farmers’ Market in Marion Square (at the intersection of Calhoun and Meeting Streets). Since this is located at the corner of Ansonborough, it’s an easy walk from most of the homes. The Farmers’ Market takes place every Saturday morning from April to December and features local produce and flowers, art work, and fresh ready-to-eat fare. Whether you're looking for a central location with plenty of entertainment options or simply a classic, historic Charleston home, Ansonborough should certainly be on your list to consider!
