Elliotborough & Cannonborough Neighborhood, Charleston, SC

Elliotborough & Cannonborough

Legendary history collides with teeming energy in Charleston’s gateway neighborhood: Elliotborough. What was once an area for the common Charlestonian has now turned into a haven for homebuyers wanting to live between past and present. Classical, row homes offer an authentic taste of historic Charleston while the rise of modern shops surround you with today’s pleasures. It’s the perfect balance for those who want the best of both worlds.

About Elliotborough

Charlestonians often refer to Elliotborough and Cannonborough as one neighborhood. They are the gateway communities into downtown Charleston, as many travelers cross the boundaries as they come from surrounding cities, like Mount Pleasant, West Ashley, and James Island.

The area is bound by Septima Clark Parkway, King Street, Bee Street, and Morris Street. Directly adjacent to the neighborhood is the Medical University of South Carolina (among other hospitals), the College of Charleston, and the Music Farm. Because of Elliotborough’s proximity to the hospitals and colleges, it puts you in direct access to many workplaces. You can forget about traffic and easily walk to both work and restaurants.

Elliotborough & Cannonborough Real Estate

The majority of Elliotborough and Cannonborough real estate features Charleston single homes, which look like sideways houses put on the lot. However, there is purpose behind the design. Because Charleston gets relatively hot during the summers, the homes were designed to feature long patios on each floor. These channel cool breezes from the Ashley River into the house, refreshing the living areas.

Inside Elliotborough properties, you’ll find an array of floor plans, some updated to modern amenities while others needing a little TLC. This provides ample opportunity to find real estate matching your budget and desires.

If you’re looking to invest and rent out the property, Elliotborough real estate is a good place to start with. A portion of the homes are duplexes, split by floor level -- giving you the ability to rent or airbnb the extra living area.

Elliotborough serves as the luminary for delicious eats and ecstatic places to shop at. All around the neighborhood are local-favorite restaurants and trendy clothing stores. All you have to do is pick a street and you’ll immediately find a new place you haven’t tried yet.
