Hampton Park Terrace runs directly along the eastern-most street of The Citadel (The Military College of South Carolina). Because it’s located so far north of the Crosstown, this community does not have a close proximity to the shopping and restaurants that most people associate with Downtown Charleston. However, these entertainment options are just 5-10 minutes by car or 15-20 minutes by bike. Instead, within walking distance of most of these homes you'll find the stadium for the local minor league baseball team, the Charleston Riverdogs (pictured right). Plus, the Citadel’s sporting events are very close by. And the Jack Adams Tennis Center located on Congress Street features 6 lighted hard courts and is open to the public.
Brittlebank Park is also within walking distance and offers beautiful views of the Ashley River, a playground, and a fishing pier. You’ll also find McMahon Playground which offers a baseball/softball field, soccer, and basketball courts in addition to its playground. One of the biggest draws for this community, though, is the nearly 64-acre Hampton Park (pictured left) which is very popular for running/walking, picnics, and outdoor activities on its ample green spaces. Its reflecting pond is home to many ducks and geese; its massive, hundred year old oak trees provide cool shade to readers and picnickers; and its landscaping boasts colorful flowers throughout most of the year. This is the largest park in the city, and some of the most sought after homes in Hampton Park Terrace overlook this scenic park.
Hampton Park Terrace is ideal for home buyers who want to live in Downtown Charleston but want to avoid the tourist congestion and high costs of living in the higher density areas. With house prices mostly under $500K and larger lot sizes, the community appeals to a wide range of home buyers. Clients are often surprised to learn that the neighborhood has so few Charleston style homes. Rather, there’s a fantastic selection of spacious bungalow, craftsman, and colonial style houses to choose from that feature heavy mouldings, classic fireplaces, high ceilings, and the kinds of architectural details that are hard to find with newer homes today. The community was largely planned from 1911 and 1913, so you’ll find plenty of charming historic homes built in the first half of the 20th century.
