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 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 shop, and other specialty stores.
The older community of Byrnes Down features mostly smaller homes constructed in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Most of the brick cottage homes within the community range in size from 900 to 1,800 square feet, with floor plans typically offering 2 or 3 bedrooms. Despite the age of the homes, most have been renovated and boast luxurious interior features.
