Westside Neighborhood, Charleston, SC

Westside

The Westside community rewards urban dwellers with delicious eateries, diverse housing, and quick commute-channels. Although known for the Joe Riley Baseball Stadium, this Charleston neighborhood has been steadily transforming from entertaining to inviting.

Traditionally, people came to the area to watch baseball games and admire the riverfront views at Brittlebank Park. Today though, Westside’s revival has been marked with new living developments and renovated housing. For homebuyers seeking opportunities to be connected within all the city’s amenities, Westside is a natural first-step.

Westside Real Estate

The urban conveniences of Westside are only one benefit to buying a home in the area. The range of architectural styles -- the variety of homes to choose from -- is greater than most other Charleston neighborhoods.

You’ll find homes dating back to the early 1920’s and 1930’s, while also seeing new developments sprouting up. Cozy cottages and Charleston single-house designs are among the most popular. These homes offer one-of-a-kind floor plans streamlined for comfort. Living spaces are highlighted among entering, giving each property (and guest) a proper Southern welcome. Bedrooms are tucked away, offering the right solitude to recharge your batteries.

For homeowners who dislike maintaining a huge yard, Westside real estate is a good balance. Yards are intimate, yet give space for pets to play in. Backyards become entertainment spots, as residents love to grill and throw barbecues. And if you want to spend your weekend lazily, take a seat on the front porch. Watch people bicycle or walk their dog. Say hello to neighbors. It’s easy to rewind and charge up while living in Westside.

Things to Do around Westside

In five minutes you can go from catching home-runs at the Riverdogs baseball stadium to walking along Ashley River at Brittlebank Park. Or you can head the other direction and dine at some of Charleston’s favorite restaurants. Westside is a good match for homebuyers who love to call themselves foodies and love to be around high-energy entertainment (from college football games to local events happening in nearby parks).

One of the best hobbies to enjoy around Westside is bicycling. Because the neighborhood is centrally located in Charleston, you have easy access to tons of stores, eateries, and workplaces. You’ll rarely use your car and often find it easier just to hop on your bike. There’s no need to worry about parking.

If you do want to get outside of the community, surrounding areas like Isle of Palms and Folly Beach offer a sandy retreat on the Atlantic Ocean. Dig your toes into the warm sand, apply some sunscreen, and listen to the waves break against the beach. It’s hard to beat Charleston summers.

Popular restaurants around Westside include:

  • Harold’s Cabin (creative local fare & coffee bar)
  • Dellz Uptown (laid back deli for veg-friendly eats)
  • Twenty-Six Divine (boutique cafe and bakery)
  • Recovery Room (local dive bar)
  • Leon’s (hip space for oysters and chicken)

Living in Westside

Summing up Westside is simple. You’ll watch leisurely days drift into sensational adventures. Cozy living is matched with city excitement. Westside is a great neighborhood for those who want something easy, casual, and relaxing.
