The Neighborhood

Our house is located in the heart of Downtown Charleston, a beautiful historic area that’s a delight to walk around. The house is only two blocks from King Street, considered to be the ‘Rodeo Drive’ of Charleston because of its great selection of shops, from high-end clothing boutiques to quirky antique shops and book stores. There’s plenty to keep you entertained here day and night, with many art galleries, cafes, restaurants and bars. Go for a stroll in the day and enjoy the people watching, followed by a cocktail in one of the many trendy bars and perhaps then a live music gig. This is a one-of-a-kind place to stay close to the best entertainment and nightlife Charleston has to offer! For a tasty brunch, we recommend heading to Five Loaves Cafe just round the corner where you can enjoy a variety of soups, salads and sandwiches with vegan and gluten- free options. The house is only a short walk from Marion Square, a fun park where there is always lots going on, including a farmers’ market every Saturday in the summer. Go for a stroll and view work by local artists - who display their work at weekends - , play Frisbee or sit or socialize with the passers-by, including students from the nearby College of Charleston, dog walkers and tourists. The Charleston Museum, America’s first museum built in 1773, is also close to here and is a great place to visit if you want to learn about the natural and cultural history of the South Carolina Lowcountry.

I am an avid traveler, who loves to experience new people and places. I design and create landscapes as well as lecture on things horticultural and historic. When not traveling, I spend most of my time on my Ohio farm with my wonderful husband and a plethora of dogs and chickens. I spend the rest of my time in Charleston, South Carolina soaking up the sun, culture, and history. In addition to traveling, I love reading, cooking, swimming, and gardening.
