Our Wagener Terrace Agent: Carter Rowson
ABOUT WAGENER TERRACE
The history of Wagener Terrace dates back to the late 1800′s when William Lowndes sold his 34 acre, waterfront plantation to Frederick Wagener. When Wagener bought the property, Lowndes had completely remodeled the main home, and today, it still remains a stunning 14 acre estate nestled on the banks of the Ashley River and has become a National Historic Place. Wagener and his family lived happily on the plantation until 1917 when he sold it to James Sottile, who then moved into the main home and split 20 acres of the land into residential lots, calling the future neighborhood “Wagener Terrace Subdivision.”Construction began in the 1920′s and continued through the 40′s. The cottages and bungalows that were built during this time still remain today, and many have been restored and renovated. So whether you are looking for a move-in ready home with lots of turn of the century character, or a fixer-upper to give your property a personal style, Wagener Terrace is the first place to search.
Located on the Ashley River, Wagener Terrace is bound by marshes to the west, Rutledge Avenue to the east and Hampton Park and The Citadel to the south. Wagener Terrace’s location boasts the convenience of downtown life along with the slower pace of a traditional neighborhood. Residents are just a bike ride away from just about anything downtown Charleston offers, but are light years from the noise and and traffic of urban living. And with The Citadel’s campus nestled on the southern end of this community, sunny afternoons can be spent walking and touring the grounds, or just lounging in one of their many outdoor lawns.
