Close to MUSC, downtown businesses, beaches, and boat access, Avondale is located less than five minutes from Charleston, making it an ideal location for homeowners. The area boasts many amenities, including the West Ashley Greenway, a tree-lined path to walk, run, or ride through the area. Residents also enjoy many restaurants and bars that are within walking distance of their homes. Rich in history, these Avondale homes were built in the 1940s and ‘50s. Now, renovations are prevalent, giving the area the nickname the “Designer District.”

Residing in Byrnes Downs, Avondale, or Windermere gives you easy access to the West Ashley Greenway. Formerly a railway, which was abandoned in 1981, the city began working to create a public pathway to add to the series of East Coast Greenways. This trail spans from Folly Road at the South Windermere Center shops all the way to Main Road in the west. The 8.8 mile paved path was completed in 2007 and serves the neighbors of the Avondale area and all of West Ashley.
