Are you considering a move to Charleston? If so, make sure you contact Grayhawk Homes to see the outstanding three-, four-, and five-bedroom homes in Charleston SC they’re currently building in the new Middleborough at Shadowmoss Plantation. These elegant homes fit perfectly in with the charming streets of the city where Spanish moss, picturesque squares, outstanding food, and thought-provoking history all meld together with a good ol’ dose of southern charm. While you’re visiting or settling in to your perfect new home, here are some of the iconic streets you won’t want to miss.

Start your visit off right on Church Street. The eponymous St. Philips Episcopal Church, built between 1835 and 1838, is where you’ll find everyone from politicians to authors buried, including Edward Rutledge, signer of the Declaration of Independence; Charles Pinckney, signer of the Constitution; and Dubose Heyward, author of the novel Porgy, which would go on to be turned into Porgy and Bess.

East Bay Street is heaven for those who love to eat well and enjoy beautiful scenery. Your Instagram app’s going to get a lot of use on this street. Poogan’s Smokehouse offers amazing barbecue as well as mouth-watering pimento-cheese fritters. At High Cotton, you’ll find amazing buttermilk fried oysters that are bound to convert anyone. In between meals, take in the beautiful pastel colors of the buildings along Rainbow Row and enjoy the easy flow and stunning views along Charleston Battery.

King Street is where shopaholics will want to make a beeline, thanks to everything from antiques to one-of-a-kind contemporary offerings. It’s been named one of the Top 10 shopping streets by US News and World Report.

After all the eating and shopping and sightseeing, take a moment to calm your senses with the beautiful greenery and gardens along Legare Street. You’ll feel like you’ve found paradise.

Finally, to make sure the walls of all of those homes in Charleston SC have some beautiful artwork, don’t miss historic Broad Street. With its own Gallery Row, made up of at least 15 galleries, you won’t be short on options. Plus, in the surrounding streets, you’ll find at least another 50 galleries to suit any artistic preference and probably plenty of budgets. Whatever you choose, it will look perfect in your new Grayhawk home at the Middleborough at Shadowmoss Plantation community.
