The Charleston Classics Collection


Where "SOB" refers to "South of Broad"

harleston, South Carolina is located in what is called the Lowcountry of coastal South Carolina. The Historic District on the Charleston peninsula is known for its centuries old homes, graceful architecture, cobblestone streets and beautiful gardens secluded behind wrought iron gates off picturesque streets and alleyways. As one of the first cities in America to undertake an organized historic preservation effort, Charleston has what is considered by many to be the best preserved historic district in the nation. Charleston house plans bring back the charm of a bygone era when Magnolia filled the air and spanish moss swayed lazily in the summer breeze.


Charleston is made up of a number of communities with their own distinct personalities, attitudes, historical significance, style and character. Most notable is the Historic District with the Battery and its "Rainbow Row" overlooking the Ashley River. Mt. Pleasant across the East Cooper River or "East Cooper", as locals refer to it, is known for traditional neighborhoods like Creekside, Hobcaw, Molasses Creek and Olde Park sets the tone for slow paced living with everything from mansions to quaint bungalows.

The West Ashley is located within the city of Charleston across the Ashley River and is known for its traditional architecture and prized homes on the water. Nearby James Island, Johns Island and Wadmalaw are steeped in Charleston tradition yet offer residents a more "rural" atmosphere minutes from the Historic District.

The Seabrook 2 (Green Design) An exclusive Southern Living House Plan

Broad Street cuts east to west through historic Charleston.  The Battery and other residences with their pristine, walled gardens lie to the south.  There is a saying in Charleston that those who live south of Broad are referred to as SOB's.  Those slightly north of Broad are referred to as SNOB's!
