Consisting mostly of 1940s brick cottage homes that have been renovated, this charming neighborhood is across the Savannah Hwy (Hwy 17) from the popular Avondale section. Despite their smaller size, often two bedrooms with one full bath, these homes are consistently popular because of the neighborhood and its central location. Byrnes Downs is just a walk or bike ride away from the Charleston Peninsula via the Ashley River Memorial Bridge. And of course adjacent to Byrnes Downs and Avondale is West Ashley’s “designer district” which is home to boutique shops, local bars and restaurants, wine and cheese shops, and other specialty stores.
