Charleston Homes…Beautiful Exteriors!

Yesterday, I wrote about the hotel we stayed in on our recent trip to Charleston, South Carolina.

Since Charleston is famous for their magnificent architecture, today I will share some photos of Charleston homes!

Exterior of Charleston Home

For those of you who have been to Charleston, you know that the houses are breathtaking!

Charleston Home

There is no possible way that I could have chosen one favorite.

Not that I could afford to buy one…

But we can dream!

I loved the pastel colors of the houses.

Charleston Homes - The Battery

Seriously, how fabulous would it be to live on this street?

I couldn’t get enough of the architecture and the stunning porches.

Many of the homes had multi-level side porches.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be out there sipping tea all day?…(or margaritas!)

Charleston Homes with porches

 The front door to many of the homes appeared to go directly inside…

Only when you take another look, you notice the door actually opens to the lower porch.  Elegant yet casual at the same time.

Charleston Homes - Front Porch

And how inviting is this entrance!

How welcoming is this one?  In a home like this, simple fall decor is all you need on your porch.

Charleston Homes with Gas Lanterns

So attractive…and I love the gas lanterns.

Charleston Window Box with black shutters

Black shutters and blooming window boxes…what’s not to love?

Oh, hello little dog!

We toured the Calhoun Mansion. No cameras were allowed inside. but you can tour the house HERE.

Charleston Fountain

The grounds were impressive.

And once again – the charming porches.

It was a lovely day to spend outside!

We just couldn’t get over how many spectacular homes lined the historic streets.  Put this city on your list!

Yes, Charleston really is as beautiful as you have heard.

What cities have you fallen in love with?

I’d love for you to follow along so you don’t miss a post!

    Oh how I love Charleston! I was lucky enough to have lived there for four wonderful years in college. I used to run past most of those houses, along the Battery, every day! Beautiful.
