Why we have a crush on this property

Charleston, South Carolina’s colorful charm is undeniable. From its cluster of Georgian row houses known as Rainbow Row to its many grand dames, the city is like a sorbet-hued fairytale. This cottage for sale right in the heart of downtown is a gateway to all of it—and a dreamy low country getaway for plant lovers.

The three-bedroom home flaunts major curb appeal with a welcoming front porch. Its current owner, blogger Liz Elliott, has bedecked it in ferns, monstera plants, cacti, and other specimens, making for a leafy green welcome to a warm little home. (Green-thumbed buyers, take note.)

Built in 1935, the one-floor cottage boasts original hardwoods, huge windows, and molding. French doors off the living room open to a dining area, and just beyond it, the kitchen offers an abundance of cabinets. Each bedroom comes with its own bathroom—and one of them features an ornamental fireplace with a mantel. 

Around back, there’s a just-big-enough fenced-in backyard with a brick patio and space for a garden.
