A waterfront neighborhood situated right on the Cooper River and bounded by Concord, Broad, Meeting and Market Streets, Charleston’s French Quarter was established in 1680, well before the American Revolution. The area is one of historic downtown Charleston’s crown jewels with its cobblestone streets and distinctive centuries-old architecture. Besides housing some of Charleston’s most iconic historic features (the Market, churches and the Dock Street Theater to name a few), some of the city’s best restaurants and many inns, shops and galleries, the French Quarter includes a robust residential community. Real estate in the neighborhood includes modern luxury condominiums, mixed-use properties that serve residential and commercial purposes, and beautiful single-family homes built in the 1700s and 1800s.
