The Crescent

The Crescent

What can one say about The Crescent to do it justice? Located directly off Folly Road on the left before going over the drawbridge to James Island lies this prestigious neighborhood. Older homes live here, many larger in size, but others smaller and quaint with their own charm.

Streets are adorned with grand oaks dripping with spanish moss while lush landscaping surrounds the stately homes. At the back, neighborhood children use a path to walk to private Porter-Gaud (grades 1-12). Just tell people you live in The Crescent and they know how to find you. Price tags can be hefty, but as they say, it’s all about LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.

Daniel Island

The third major section of the City of Charleston is the Peninsular Island across the Copper River named Daniel Island. Thanks to the Cooper River on the west and the Wando River to the east (both shipping ports), until the Mark Clark Expressway (I-526) was constructed in the early 90’s Daniel Island was literally cut off from the rest of Charleston, and even today it has the unique distinction as the only section of the City that is not contiguous with the rest of Charleston, nor is it a part of Charleston County.
