Cannonborough and Elliotborough, centrally located on the downtown Charleston peninsula, provide a wide range of living options including historic Charleston properties as well as modern contemporary condos and townhomes. Bordering the Upper King Street restaurant district, this neighborhood offers numerous dining experiences and boutique shopping. Proximity to the College of Charleston, local businesses and the MUSC medical complex makes this area a good choice for those looking to work and play within walking and biking distance.

This neighborhood is home to Trattoria Lucca, one of local chef’s (Ken Vendrinski) most revered restaurants.
