One of Charleston's oldest neighborhoods, Harleston Village was founded in the late 1600s as a land grant to one John Coming. The land was later inherited by one of the descendants of Coming's wife - John Harleston - and was originally lined with marshes and creeks before being filled in through 19th century. Today, Harleston Village stands as one of Charleston's most prestigious neighborhoods. Houses on Montagu, Pitt, Beaufain, Wentworth and countless others exhibit all the charm of Historic Downtown in a variety of architectural styles. While the area's close proximity to the College of Charleston makes it a popular site for rental property investments, the area is littered with people of all ages - from young parents to 10th generation Charleston residents and everywhere in between.
Harleston Village is within walking distance to most of what Downtown has to offer - including Broad Street, the Market Street area, the College of Charleston and MUSC. In the mornings, you see grad students, professionals and retirees waltzing about to their destinations. You see couples walking their dogs or spending time with their kids at the nearby Colonial Lake. And you feel like you're right in the midst of what makes Charleston so special.
