New luxury developments sell out in Charleston
It’s no secret that Charleston, South Carolina is fast becoming one of the most popular cities in the world. The holy city continues to top lists across the globe as one of the best places to live, and recent forecasts predict that the housing market in Charleston will be among the top ten in the United States for the next several years.
Not bad for a town of only around 150,000 inhabitants.
The high demand means that the supply will have to follow suit, and therefore, developers are reacting quickly with many new developments underway across the city.
Thanks to developers like East West Real Estate, Charleston luxury residences are now available with more options than ever before, ranging from price, size and amenities.
Regardless of square footage or price, these new residences all aim to capture what people from all over come to Charleston to find – that Lowcountry charm.
71 Wentworth to Harleston Village
Located on the corner of Wentworth and King Street in Harleston Village, 71 Wentworth is a microcosm of Charleston itself, where history, charm and tradition meet the modern world.
Designed in the late 19th century by Charleston architect John Henry Devereux, this luxury condominium was originally a Grand Masonic Lodge built in the Tudor Gothic Revival style. During the 20th century, the building was used for a variety of purposes, including retail, office, and performance space.
Then, in 2019, the Charleston Landmark was acquired by East West Partners and plans for a comprehensive restoration began with the aim of creating unique residences that were both calm and exciting.
While the renovations are significant, many desirable features of the building’s Gothic origins remain: expansive cathedral ceilings, large arched windows, and exposed antique brickwork.
Contemporary additions, such as open floor plans, state-of-the-art amenities, and bespoke finishes and accessories, deliver modern style and comfort without ever clashing with the traditional features that make these homes so stylish and stunning.
The 12 residences of the iconic building sold out quickly, even before the renovation was completed.
Cape Town for Kiawah
The barrier islands off the Atlantic coast, just southwest of Charleston, are home to some of the most pristine landscapes in the entire state.
One of these islands, Kiawah, is particularly distinguished, thanks to the balance between unspoiled natural beauty and world-class real estate, golf courses and resorts.
Le Cap sur Kiawah is the perfect example of this harmonious combination of development and the splendor of nature.
Comprised of 14 acres, Cape Town offers spacious oceanfront condos and penthouses that come in two, three, and four bedroom floor plans.
Amenities are plentiful in Cape Town, with some residences offering wraparound terraces, floor-to-ceiling windows with jaw-dropping views, and large sliding doors that blend seamlessly inside and out.
All residents will have access to the Cape Club to enjoy the infinity pool, deck and fitness center, as well as amenities such as beach rentals and cottages.
The waterfront on Daniel Island
Twenty-two scenic acres of Daniel Island make up the brand new mixed-use community, The Waterfront, where residents can enjoy both the comfort and convenience of a luxurious lifestyle as well as the charm and the Lowcountry tranquility.
Nestled along the Wando River, the Waterfront has plenty of community amenities including private gardens, a clubhouse with an expansive pool, and ferry service to downtown Charleston.
The condos available for sale range from one- to three-bedroom floor plans in three residences: Egret, Osprey, and Heron. Amenities vary based on floor plan and include large balconies, walk-in closets, and serene views of the Wando River.
Two of the 24 residences remain in Egret, and only one remains in Osprey. All of the Heron’s residences are all sold. Prices for available units range from $ 1.09 million to $ 1.545 million.
The 13 townhouses in the Sandpiper and Kingfisher floor plans are all sold.
Waterfront Phase 2 development plans are now in motion, with four more phases to come in the following years.
