The Eastside Life and Real Estate

Settled between Meeting St to the West and E Bay St to the East, Chapel St in the South, and Lee St, in the North, resides the amazing community of Eastside. Eastside is an up-and-coming community with tons of potential.

Life in Eastside

Eastside is quickly becoming a hub of activity because of its potential and close location to downtown Charleston. Once known as one of the rougher areas of town, Eastside has a long history with lots of ups and downs, and today things are looking up because the area is undergoing a transformation. Over the past 30 years, this neighborhood has seen a total transformation and has been great for those who want to experience the neighborhood’s resurgence. Today this is one of the most densely populated areas of Charleston, meaning you are a short walk from restaurants, event spaces, and offices in every direction.

You can also walk over to The Old Cigar Factory, which has been thoughtfully renovated. The 150,000 sq. feet Old Cigar Factory now houses the popular whisky bar, Bar Mash, and Mercantile, part restaurant, part home goods store. Colorful Eastside has plenty to see and do. There is the Aiken Rhett House, along with the Phillip Simmons House, which details the life of Eastside’s most famous resident, Phillip Simmons, a blacksmith.
