Built along the Ashley River in downtown Charleston, Wagener Terrace is a revitalized neighborhood on the peninsula that attracts, families, young professionals and students alike. Different from the boroughs of the peninsula, Wagener Terrace offers the downtown convenience without the hustle and bustle of an urban lifestyle. It is a true residential community, composed mainly of single family homes with spacious front and backyards.

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.

If you’re interested in learning more about Wagener Terrace, please contact Carter Rowson!  Here’s what some of his clients have to say about working with him:

“Carter has helped us sell two homes and purchase two different ones. Simply stated, Carter has proven to be the best professional we have worked with over the last thirty years, during which we completed over twenty real estate transactions. In addition, he’s a darned nice guy” – Michael Light

“Carter was extremely helpful before, during, and after the actual purchase of our property. When we arrived at our hotel in Charleston, a packet of information about each of the properties we would be visiting awaited…a wonderful introduction to the city. As we visited each of the properties, he was prepared to give us sales comparables for the area and information on maintenance issues, property taxes, and fees. He worked diligently with us and the realtor representing the seller to reach a price that was agreeable to both of us. Since we returned to our out-of-town residence before closing, Carter oversaw the inspection process and made sure that all repairs were made to the property as stipulated in the addendum. Well after the closing, he has assisted me with questions I have had about utilities and moving permit applications. Not only does Carter have a winning personality, but he is efficient, knowledgeable, and ethical. Our working relationship with him was excellent.” -June Stobaugh
