Custom Home On The Peninsula

New Build in Downtown Charleston

Published June 03, 2019

Most new homes in Charleston are built in West Ashley, James and Johns Islands, or Mount Pleasant, but New Leaf recently completed a beautiful custom home right on the peninsula, right in downtown Charleston.

There’s a lot to love about this elevated home in the Lowndes Pointe neighborhood of historic downtown. Two beautiful and inviting fireplaces, one in the living room and one on the outdoor patio; walk-in tiled shower and separate bathtub; a functional island in the kitchen, which opens up to the back porch.

But the real showpiece here are the upper level decks, which look out across the marsh. This breathtaking view looks out over the Ashley River, a unique view of the Lowcountry that most can only dream about. 

The neighborhood is a nautical dream, offering a private community pier, exclusive to Lowndes Pointe, features 12 jet docks and 12 wet slips. Nearby are all the exciting offerings of being in downtown Charleston, but the community itself is secluded enough to be private and quiet.
