Charleston, with its wide streets, palm trees and ocean walks, is one of the oldest cities in the South. It dates all the way back to 1670, so it's no surprise that there are some very beautiful, and very old, homes there. Today, we're taking you inside five of our favorites, for a little virtual visit that's almost as good as being there yourself.

Above: The Italian owners of this classic Charleston single, which dates to 1836, brought a little bit of the elegant, laid-back style of the Tuscan countryside to their South Carolina home. See more at Charleston Mag.

This classic Charleston single house, built in 1854, has a modern, stripped-down feel thanks to subsequent renovations, which maintained the home's bones but did away with some of the more intricate touches. The home's current owners have filled the house with a mix of antiques and filled the walls with pieces from their folk art collection, for a laid-back Americana vibe. See more at Charleston Mag.
