For visitors and residents alike, the historic Battery of Downtown Charleston is a stunning and captivating location. One of the most well known and most toured areas of the Lowcountry, the Battery is a fortified seawall at the meeting point of the Cooper and Ashley Rivers. It is lined with historic homes and is the home of White Point Garden, a scenic park with statues, live oaks, and cannons to commemorate the battles fought from this location.
Murray Boulevard is one of the streets the Battery is composed of. It is lined with Antebellum homes and some of the most premier real estate in the area.
This month, we listed two properties in this famed location. 78 Murray Boulevard and 1 Battery Place.
78 Murray Boulevard was built in 1931 as part of the “Boulevard Project,” an effort to overcome wartime and economic setbacks by expanding and developing the west side. 78 Murray is built in the Colonial Revival style, with gorgeous vistas of the Ashley River. There is a private walled garden in the rear yard planted with some of Charleston’s most desirable plants and trees, allowing for a true “Charleston” gardening experience. This home was designed and built specifically for the ancestors of the current residents and has remained in the family.
1 Battery Place is a phenomenal example of a fully renovated home on the Charleston peninsula that blends into the traditional and charming properties on the Battery. This 3 bedroom townhome was recently finished with impeccably high end taste. It is located on a small cul-de-sac with little foot traffic off of Murray Boulevard with townhomes of similar style. Contrary to the estates often seen on the Battery, 1 Battery Place is a terrific example of the ideal pied-a-terre for Charleston. Even though it’s set back off the river, it still has scenic views and is just a few steps from the water! Click here to look inside this completely move-in ready home!

"After reaching out to a friend for advice on a realtor in Charleston, my husband and I were told that Georgia Nettles was the realtor that we needed! We were moving across the country from Seattle, WA and neither one of us had ever lived in Charleston before. We arrived in Charleston with some ideas of areas that we would be searching for a home in, but once we told Georgia our needs and wants she was able to find us a completely different area in Charleston that met all our expectations. She was knowledgeable about all the many different areas of Charleston and Mount Pleasant. Being a military family, resale was extremely important to us and she was honest with us about which homes and neighborhoods would most likely retain their value. She was extremely reachable for showings and made us feel like a priority at all times. She was patient with us when we were having the usual first-time buyer fears and never once pressured us to make a snap decision. Georgia also had wonderful recommendations for home inspectors and banks to work with for obtaining our financing. We are so glad that we worked with Georgia for the purchase of our home! She helped us find our dream home AND helped us secure it at a price we were comfortable paying. We would absolutely work with Georgia again and recommend her to anyone searching for a home in the area!"
