West Ashley (Inside I-526)
West Ashley is located across the Ashley River, directly west of Downtown Charleston, and it is one of the earliest suburbs in the area. Within the bounds of the City of Charleston, West Ashley offers a number of historic neighborhoods built in the mid 20th century. Well located, being just minutes from downtown, West Ashley offers an array of moderately priced, often brick homes on ample sized lots, some on the water with marsh views. There are several popular commercial areas with shopping and dining, which contribute to some of the neighborhoods walkability and appeal.
