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.
