For more than four centuries, this idyllic downtown Charleston waterfront estate has captivated guests with its 14 dramatic acres of live oak groves and serene river views. Lowndes Grove maintains a distinguished standing on the National Register for Historic Places, featuring a relaxed and refined setting steeped in 1786-era architecture and period furnishings. The picturesque waterfront venue delivers boundless indoor and outdoor venue space, including a ceremonial grand lawn with a pristine white mansion backdrop, a formal dining room ideal for intimate dinners, a striking glass-enclosed portico for elaborate receptions and dancing, and a 750-square-foot piazza overlooking the river and oak grove.
The panoramic Lowcountry scene lends to a natural elegant coastal aesthetic and offers unrivaled views extending from the signature 700-foot private dock along the Ashley River. Sunny terraces are made of bluestone, brick and oyster tabby and a private second-floor bridal suite is perfect for prepping and primping. A complimentary hospitality suite welcomes couples and loved ones to a refined retreat in the Main House. The in-house culinary team sources the freshest seasonal ingredients from local producers while a celebrated pastry chef creates cakes and confections that speak to your love story.
