Homes for Sale
Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.
Where to Live
North Central encompasses a bit of the busy King Street but also offers quiet side streets for those seeking a bit of privacy. Homes here range from quaint to grand on any given block, and some of the lower priced options have the potential to be true stars of the neighborhood if given a bit of TLC. If nature is important to your well-being, try to find a home on the south end near Hampton Park.
Where to Eat
North Central restaurants are picking up speed as they are surrounded by competitive and well-known eateries. Contenders in the area include Rodney Scott's BBQ, where you can sit outside at a picnic table in the shade and take a moment to savor your whole-hog barbecue plate with homestyle fixings. Delicious pizza is plentiful in this neck of the woods, but we recommend Renzo for its hip vibe and delicious Italian cuisine.
What You'll See
The North Central community includes families, professionals young and old, and retirees alike. Students of Charleston's colleges move in and out of the neighborhood as well, but the population is not entirely transient. Residents socialize and build lasting friendships through urban gardens, art events, and other community projects.
Friday Night Fun
Great bars and restaurants surround you in North Central. Moe's Crosstown Tavern is a popular spot to grab a burger and a beer, watch sports, shoot pool, and enjoy good company. Faculty Lounge is your destination for dancing and cocktails. For a more laid-back evening, head to Uneeda Sicilian to relax on the outdoor patio, dine on exceptional pizza, or enjoy a can of wine with your meal.
The Perfect Sunday
The Harbinger Cafe & Bakery feels like your childhood tea party grew up and moved to Charleston. This fantastic little joint opens up bright and early for you on Sundays and offers some incredible breads and pastries, delicious coffee, and sublime tea. The atmosphere will get you in the spirit to spend the rest of your day moseying along King Street or taking a walk to nearby Hampton Park to read, relax, or play.
There's a wide variation of prices in this neighborhood. North Central is bursting with possibility if you're looking to buy low and sell high, but the area also has some newly renovated, single-family homes at affordable prices.
You're in close proximity to some major roadways, so getting around by car is a great option here. Of course, like most everywhere else in Charleston, it isn't difficult to get around on foot or by bike. For inexpensive rides around town, CARTA (Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority) offers several bus routes in the area.
