A Road Trip to Charleston
Recently I drove from Florida to Ohio. I was going to be near Charleston, South Carolina, and really wanted to head over to the coast to spend some time in the city again. Alas, I just didn’t feel I had the time and passed it up this time. I know it won’t be long until I visit again.
I love a single house with it’s double or even triple balconies. There are a lot of homes in Celebration, where I live that are built in the single house style.
Wouldn’t you love to have the homes throw open the gates like this and invite you in?
You would be able to view the wonderful gardens, like this one.
Of course, one of the fun things about real estate listings is that they give you a peek into those homes and gardens. You could actually tour some of the homes and gardens with the The Preservation Society of Charleston. They offer tours twice a year.
Actual working shutters are found throughout the historic district and get put to good use when hurricanes threaten.
Check out the pool and pool house found inside one of the hidden courtyards!
So many beautiful staircases and entry ways can be seen just walking along the streets of The Battery.
Tucked between these two historic houses is a lush garden and elegant fountain.
I hope you get a chance to visit Charleston and take in some of its wonderful sights sometime soon.
