The Crescent

The Crescent, West Ashley, is a quiet, small, secluded neighborhood from another time. With rolling green lawns, and oaks hung with Spanish Moss, it is beautifully situated in-between Albemarle Street and Folly Street. The Crescent is five minutes from historic Charleston and fifteen minutes to Folly Beach by car. Begun in the 1920s, the neighborhood grew substantially, from the 1950s to the 1970s. As a result, many of the large single-family homes are built in a traditional brick style which many find very appealing.

The beautiful waterfront homes look out over a marsh or the Intercoastal Waterway. The Crescent is also close to Wappoo Creek, which has a public boat landing that is a short ride across to Charleston Harbor.

To finish a day spent outside in the Crescent, there are many restaurants to sip a cocktail as the sun goes down over the water.
