WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN CHARLESTON?
It’s difficult to choose in Charleston, however currently it is Coda Del Pesci. Head Chef Ken Vedrinski is producing some of the best Italian food at both of his restaurants but Coda Del Pesci pairs his world class pastas with a seafood flair. When combined with a direct view of the Atlantic Ocean nestled on Isle of Palms, it is truly a treasure.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE FEATURES OF HOMES?
By far my favorite aspect of Charleston homes are the piazzas. Outdoor living space is a major part of any Charleston home whether downtown or at the beach. We have some of the most beautiful houses in the nation and the porches are such a vital part of their character, whether you are entertaining or just enjoying a morning cup of coffee.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT CHARLESTON?
My favorite part is the diversity. The ability to have a perfect Saturday on the water or on the land. The absolutely beautiful but completely different styles of houses throughout the region. The diverse and exceptional restaurants downtown from Italian to BBQ to French cuisine. I love how none of our three major beaches are identical. The ability to never have an identical day after living here for 30+ years is what makes Charleston such a lovely city.
