Wespanee Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Wespanee, in Charleston, South Carolina, is named for the Wespanee Plantation that originally sat on the grounds. The neighborhood follows Old Towne Road north and includes Ashland Drive to the west until South Levenar Drive. Then it goes east along the green belt to the inlet to The Charleston Harbor, south to the next green belt, then back to Old Towne Road going west.
Wespanee homes were built mostly before World War II and are loaded with southern charm. Quiet streets, mature magnolia trees, good weather nearly all year round, and homes with grand porches and great landscaping make this a walker’s paradise. Signs of family activity are everywhere, and the streets make a good place to learn to ride a bike.
The prices of the area reflect the desirability of the neighborhood, and most of the houses are two stories, three or more bedrooms, and come with a lot of space. Even though the homes are older, they have been mostly updated and cared for over the years, with little of the original architecture changing.
Charleston is a city steeped in history, and Wespanee is nestled in the middle of some of the most important places. The City Market of Charleston, at 188 Meeting Street, has been a public market since it became a part of Charleston in 1788. The Charleston Maritime Center, at 10 Wharfside Street, chronicles Charleston’s long maritime history. Fort Sumter National Monument is in The Charleston Harbor and tells the story of the Civil War, beginning with the first shot.
